One of the coolest things about the “Dexter” TV show is its animated prequel web series Early Cuts, and an announcement has come out of Comic-Con that not only is it continuing with six new chapters, but it’s also being drawn by award-winning illustrator Bill Sienkiewicz.
According to IGN Dexter Early Cuts: Dark Echo is beginning this October on Showtime.com. It is being written by “Dexter” co-executive producer and staff writer Tim Schlatteman. Dexter himself will sound very familiar, with Michael C. Hall providing his voice.
Dark Echo opens immediately after the death of Dexter’s father, Harry, with Dexter in his early twenties and his sister, Debra, still in high school. Dexter is enrolled in medical school where he’s studying anatomy to improve his “craft.” During a routine kill, Dexter realizes that another student has been spying on him and knows that he is a serial killer. He confronts the student after he begins to commit murders in Dexter’s style, and the two clash over the ethics of their situations.
“Dexter” fans attending the July 22nd Comic-Con panel for the series were treated to a special preview of Dexter Early Cuts: Dark Echo. Participants included Michael C. Hall (series star/executive producer), Jennifer Carpenter (Deb), James Remar (Harry), and executive producers John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Chip Johannessen, and Manny Coto.
