Dexter Morgan is getting his own comic. If you've seen the Showtime series, Dexter, you know what it's about. Marvel has decided to do a comic adaptation of the series. This is actually a series that was previously announced but now it seems back on track.
Will this character work well in a comic book format? Will fans of the show want to check it out? The five-issue miniseries will be written by the series creator and New York Times best-selling Jeff Lindsay so we know Dexter will be in good hands. The art will be handled by Dalibor Talajic.
Dexter is a "skilled forensic blood spatter expert with the Miami police department but he’s also the city’s friendly neighborhood crime-fighting serial killer who has to face his greatest challenge yet—a high school reunion!"
Here's what Jeff Lindsay has to say about the comic:
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.
