Marvel Comics is adding a killer character to its stable of antiheroes.
Beginning in February, Dexter Morgan, literature and cable TV's favorite serial-killing blood-spatter expert, stars in an all-new, all-murderous tale in Marvel's five-issue Dexter miniseries penned by Jeff Lindsay, the author of Darkly Dreaming Dexter — the novel that spawned Showtime's Emmy-winning Dexter drama series.
"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."
