It seems that Jeff Lindsay, creator of the wildly popular series of novels about Dexter Morgan, the crimefighting serial killer who spawned the Showtime TV series Dexter, will be bringing his creation to Marvel Comics with the help of artist Dalibor Talajic of Deadpool fame in a new five-issue miniseries.

Here's the official synopsis blurb:

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