Anyway, I can’t spoil any more than I already have, otherwise, I’ll get in trouble again. So, that’s your synopsis. My thoughts on the whole thing? Well, putting aside some pretty popular theories about Dexter’s developmental state (Where on the Autism spectrum is he, exactly?) and theories about Dee being a God or saving the world over and over again . . . or even of theories of Dee being the genius and Dexter being the dud. Putting all of that aside, I found #1 to be a bit adult for my tastes. Maybe it’s because I’m older and mellower, but I think the Final Solution for Dee is a bit out of character for Dex. Heck, in several TV episodes he evenbreaks through his anti-social shell and expresses love for his sister. I’m curious to see if Issue #2 mellows this out or comes out with a punchline or a life lesson for our lilliputian genius. I imagine it’ll be a nice, happy thing, and all of my angst will drift away. I guess we’ll see.
Anyway, all of that aside, Dexter’s Laboratory is a pretty incredible steed in the stable of imagination for an entire generation. I’m sure I’ll get over my cognitive dissonance regarding Dexter’s new fascination with sororicide . . . in the meantime, if you don’t know of Dexter’s Laboratory, you’re dumb. Buy this comic (or better yet, watch episodes on the ‘net first – then buy this comic) and discover why a generation or two loved this guy and his quirky family. If you DO know Dexter, I recommend giving this comic a shot. It’s a little dark in the first issue but have faith. Plus, the first issue is the one that’ll be worth the big bucks, so you kind of have to buy it.
