Next month, IDW, the publishing company that partnered with Cartoon Network last year for the comic book revivals of The Powerpuff Girls and Samurai Jack, will be adding Dexter’s Laboratory to their library of monthly titles.
The comic book will feature new adventures of the eponymous prepubescent super genius defending his top-secret lab from his hyperactive older sister Dee Dee. It will be written by Derek Fridolfs (Batman: Li’l Gotham) and drawn by Ryan Jampole (Mega Man).
“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),” said writer Fridolfs. “I’ve always enjoyed the clever stories and look forward to helping Dexter achieve success, even despite himself.”
