New York Comic Con News—Marvel’s Joe Quesada announced that in 2012 Marvel will publish an ongoing Dexter comic book written by Jeff Lindsay. Lindsay wrote the original novel, Darkly Dreaming Dexter, about the serial killer vigilante who works as forensic specialist and thus occasionally has the ability to cover up his own crimes.
Lindsay’s novel was adapted into the first season of the ongoing Showtime series, which is now in its sixth season, though subsequent seasons followed independent storylines. Lindsay has written five additional Dexter novels (the latest of which, Double Dexter is due out on Tuesday, October 18th). The comics that Lindsay is penning for Marvel will fit into the continuity he has established in the Dexter novels.
