Robb Ghag reviews Dexter #3…
“Dexter Morgan isn’t just Miami’s #1 forensic blood splatter expert…he’s also a serial killer who targets other serial killers! Has Dexter met his match…and did he help create him? Dexter tests how sneaky he really is by infiltrating his rival’s lair…but has he actually stepped into a trap?“
We finally get to see Dexter’s dark passenger at work. With issue #3 Dexter reminisces over why he loves Miami so much. Considering at the end of last issue, Dexter and Deb were almost incinerated; it’s tough to see why Dexter loves the city so.
The comic continues to set itself apart from the books and television series, as the narrative of Dexter seems more innocent and forgiving than on television. We also get to delve more into the mind and psychosis of Steve Gonzalez.
I’m not sure how this character would play out in the show, and truth be told, he’s very one dimensional in the book. It is still early days for Dexter in the comics, and as he investigates Gonzalez and the New Hope Foundation, one can’t help but see the similarities between comic book Dexter, and TV Dexter.
I can’t leave without praising the artwork inside the book. It’s stunning, and simple but so expertly done by Dalibor Talajic. It really sets the tone of the book, and I have to say Ive Svorcina has done an amazing job with the colors as well.
Finally the cover, again, is exceptionally done by Michael Del Mundo. It’s simple, but makes a great statement. Enjoy your summer, but be careful.
