Through a partnership between Cartoon network Enterprises and IDW publishing, we have already seen some of our favorite cartoons reborn in comic book series. Samurai Jack, The Powerpuff GIrls, and Ben 10 have already made appearances, and starting this April, we will also see Dexter’s Laboratory his the shelves at a comic shop near you.
In Dexter’s all new story, Derek Fridolfs (Batman: Li’l Gotham) will be taking the lead in writing with art by Ryan Jampole (Mega Man). “Dexter, Dee Dee and their unending battles always cracked me up, so I’m really happy to help bring them back to comics!” says Sarah Gaydos, IDW editor. “Working with Derek Fridolfs again is super fun, and Ryan really brings the energy and humor we all remember from the animated series.”
“As someone who grew up with an older sister I fought with, I feel a certain kinship to Dexter (I’m still working on the boy genius part), say writer Derek Fridolfs. “I’ve always enjoyed the clever stories and look forward to helping Dexter achieve success, even despite himself. This is gonna be a blast!”
