Through a partnership with Cartoon Network Enterprises, IDW Publishing has set about giving new life to the most beloved cartoons of the past two decades. Starting with Samurai Jack, The Powerpuff Girls, and Ben 10, the next Cartoon Network classic to join the acclaimed lineup is none other than Dexter’s Laboratory!
Created by Genndy Tartakovsky, Dexter’s Laboratoryfollowed the adventures of a young genius savant whose brilliant inventions were tucked deep down in a secret laboratory away from his oblivious parents… but not his sabotaging sister. Facing off against rogue creations, arch nemeses, and his sister’s meddling, Dexter’sLaboratory was one of the most successful original cartoons on Cartoon Network.
“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.”
Dexter’s IDW debut this April will bring back the favorite characters and inventions from the original series to tell all-new adventures. Written by Derek Fridolfs (Batman: Li’l Gotham) with art by Ryan Jampole (Mega Man) Dexter is going to have to increase his lab’s security if he wants to keep his sister Dee Dee’s hands off his newest invention!
“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!”
Look for the return of Dexter’s Laboratory and all of the sci-fi fun this April!
