Dexter fans will be happy to know that Marvel Comics is finally releasing a Dexter miniseries originally announced at New York Comic Con in 2011. Dexter creator Jeff Lindsay will pen a five issue series with Dalibor Talajic on art. The series will kick off early next February, and USA Today got a few details out of the writer and editor of the new book.
Marvel Comics has always been a place where I felt at home. It has been a very important part of my life, and has always been a wellspring of creative and relevant ideas,” says Lindsay, the writer of six Dexter novels. “I feel like I’m coming home. It is a huge thrill for me to bring Dexter into this very special pantheon.
The comic will introduce the “Skid Row Slasher,” a rookie serial killer causing all kinds of trouble for Miami’s finest. Before Dexter can take on this new foe, he has to face down something just as scary- his high school reunion.
Editor of the book and Marvel’s senior vice president/associate publisher, Ruwan Jayatilleke, promises the series will stay faithful to the television show and build upon the Dexter novels as well.
The story of a lovable, vulnerable serial killer was — and is still — very fascinating. There’s nothing like a well-written antihero, and that’s what Jeff does so expertly. He moves readers who are anchored in the middle from the different extremes of good and evil. Along the way, he envelops them in well-crafted hilarity plus thrills.
The comic will have a rating of “Parental Advisory” and feature all the gruesome and shocking gore you know from the show, explosions, and dark humor. What do you think Dexter fans? Will you be picking up the new comic book adventures of America’s favorite psychopath?
