Marvel Announces Dexter Comic... Again

Marvel Announces Dexter Comic... Again

In case you didn't hear them the first time they announced this back in July, Marvel has again announced an upcoming comic based on the Dexter book series by Jeff Lindsay.



Source: Press Release

Back in July, Marvel Comics announced that they would be producing a Dexter comic book by Dexter creator Jeff Lindsay and unpronounceable artist Dalibor Talajik. The book was solicited for October. Apparently it never came out, and also, apparently, nobody noticed, because Marvel announced the same comic again today and websites reported it as if they had never heard of it before.

The most rational working theory is that a curse was placed on the book which caused everyone in the world to forget about its existence, but The Outhouse, existing in a protective bubble of pure snark and nerd rage, was immune to the effects. Perhaps the book has been announced every few months for the past several years, and this is the first time anyone has noticed.

Or, the book was just late.

The series will be set in the continuity of the book series, and, in fact, no mention in the press release is made of the popular Showtime television adaptation, which has us leaning more toward the first theory. Books are "things" people used to "read" before the invention of the "internet." Many fans of the television series may be unaware that the book universe even exists, mostly due to a profound lack of tits.

The comic will now be out in February.

Here's the press release:

 Marvel Announces All-New DEXTER Comic Book Series

Series Creator Jeff Lindsay Brings Dexter to Comics for The First Time in February 2013

New York, NY—November 14th, 2012--Dexter Morgan is s 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! Dexter #1 (of 5), from series creator & New York Times best-selling Jeff Lindsay and artist Dalibor Talajic (Deadpool), brings fans the very first comic book featuring everyone’s favorite psychopath, Dexter. While keeping his Dark Passenger’s bloodlust--his inner demon--under control, Dexter must stop the latest murderous threat to Miami…the Skid Row Slasher. As this new menace racks up a body count to rival that of Dexter, can Miami’s “darkest” hero save the day and keep his cover intact as a normal, well-adjusted member of society?

“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 Jeff Lindsay. “I feel like I'm coming home. It is a huge thrill for me to bring Dexter into this very special pantheon."

The character of Dexter Morgan debuted in 2004’s Dily’s Award-winning Darkly Dreaming Dexter and has since appeared in five subsequent novels, with the seventh novel, Dexter’s Debut, scheduled for release in 2013. Marvels’ Dexter #1 marks the first time a story in the novels’ continuity has been presented in the comic book format.

“Dexter is a perfect fit for comics, bringing an exciting cast of layered characters together with gripping, visually arresting stories ” said Ruwan Jayatilleke, Associate Publisher & SVP, Marvel Entertainment. “It’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.”

This February, join Dexter and his Dark Passenger in an all-new story from creator Jeff Lindsay in Dexter #1 (of 5), available in comic shops everywhere!
