Better late than never, Marvel has announced that Dexter #1 will ship in February and will feature art by Dalibor Talajic (Deadpool). Previously, at the 2011 New York Comic-Con, Joe Quesada had stated that the series would be available for sale starting sometime in 2012 (see "Marvel to Publish 'Dexter' Comics").
Dexter will be a five-issue series written by New York Times best-selling author Jeff Lindsay, who created the character of Dexter Morgan (a blood spatter expert and serial killer who only murders bad guys) for a series of novels beginning with 2004’s Darkly Dreaming Dexter.
The comic books will be in continuity with the novels (as opposed to the popular Showtime television series), with Dexter facing two challenges: a high school reunion and a killer called the Skid Row Slasher.
The seventh Dexter novel by Lindsay, Dexter's Debut, also debuts in 2013.
