Writer Jeff Lindsay has teamed with artist Dalibor Talajic (Deadpool) to bring his character Dexter Morgan to the world of comic books in a 5-issue limited series. Lindsay has crafted seven novels featuring the Miami blood spatter expert that spends his free time killing other killers and general bad guys. His character has of course also found his way onto the Showtime hit TV series Dexter.
Now starting with the release of issue #1 in February 2013, Dexter must stop Miami’s latest serial killer and deal with his own high school reunion!
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,â€ says Jeff Lindsay. â€œI feel like I’m coming home. It is a huge thrill for me to bring Dexter into this very special pantheon.
Dexter is a perfect fit for comics, bringing an exciting cast of layered characters together with gripping, visually arresting storiesâ€ said Ruwan Jayatilleke, Associate Publisher & SVP, Marvel Entertainment. â€œItâ€™s an honor for Marvel to work with a lauded author such as Jeff Lindsay, whose ability to both horrify and move an audience is unparalleled. Fans of Dexter will be thrilled by this new story that fits seamlessly into the world they already know.
