    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Jul 14, 2013

    Great story, great characters, great art, great everything! The foundation was there with the book series, all that they had to was make the transition to comic form. That's probably easier said than done, but they did a great job of it! The bottom line is that this is a comic series thatDexter fans of all facets of the series should enjoy! Also, if you've never read or watched Dexter before, I recommend giving any version (book, comic, and/or TV) a try.I'm really looking forward to the next issue! Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Christopher Williams Jul 5, 2013

    Overall Dexter is shaping up to be a really great comic and I cannot wait to see how it plays out and if my guesses about the plot were correct. The story, while seemingly pretty basic, takes a nice twist that you don't see coming, coupled with some good art and what you get is a great read. Read Full Review

    Modern Age Comics - Alexander Moser Jul 5, 2013

    Dexter is a good read for anyone who loves the novels or the television program. Sure the characters look a little different, but it doesn't go against the basic ideas of which both the comic and the show share"killing is what Dexter does best, and here, Dexter kills it. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jul 3, 2013

    For me, the biggest benefit of throwing Dexter Morgan into the panels is the fun they can have with the visuals and that's more than transparent with the creative and pleasing use of his dark passenger. As I said above, the book doesn't really do anything to blow you away or surprise you, but it's by no means bad, either. It's a pretty simple and formulaic intro and if you're a fan of the character, it's worth at least checking out. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Meagan Damore Jul 5, 2013

    Although "Dexter" has several kinks to work out, Lindsay does deliver an interesting story by establishing an intriguing mystery that functions as the heart of the miniseries. The first issue certainly ended on a strong cliffhanger that will keep readers interested. At times confusing and bogged down with clichd dialogue, the "Dexter" miniseries has potential to improve nonetheless. Fans of the "Dexter" book or television series will especially enjoy this new chapter in their antihero's life. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Chris Wilson Jul 9, 2013

    If you're looking to get into Dexter's dark world, this isn't the place to start. This comic requires you be familiar with the characters from the books. Even those only having seen the show will be somewhat lost as there are significant differences. As a first issue for a previous reader I found it a suitable start, if not all that thrilling. It succeeded in making me want to see where the story goes from here but failed to knock it out of the park. Lindsay's writing strengths come through here but so do his weaknesses. And while I enjoyed the book, I don't know that I could say the same for a new reader. That's unfortunate because Dexter is a great character we all should be disturbed by. Read Full Review
