Dexter's Laboratory #1

Continuing to grow Cartoon Network presence in their comics, the first issue of the new four-issue mini-series introduces the characters from Dexter's Laboratory into the IDW universe. Fans of the show and those, like me, with only vague memories Genndy Tartakovsky's cartoon which ran for four season is the late 90s and early 2000s should enjoy themselves here.

After his sister Dee Dee destroys yet another of his experiments, Dexter comes up with a new plan and wastes no time to create his newest invention which he believes will fulfill his wishes while he dreams and get rid of that pesky sister once and for all.

With the opening issue ending on a cliffhanger as Dexter tries out his invention for the first time we'll have to wait another month to discover its fallout. The tone and pace Derek Fridolfs and Ryan Jampole and create here is a hellova lot of fun while crafting an intriguing idea for a story that I'll definitely come back for more of. Worth a look.

[IDW, $3.99]
