Book Review: Dexter

Title: Dexter
Pages: 120 pages 
Publisher: Marvel 
Publication Date: March 3rd 2015
My Rating: 1 out of 5 Stars
Source: Library 

I want to start this review off by saying that I am no way a fan of this series but I was looking at new comics and this one looked interesting. I have seen parts of the show but have never really kept up with it. 

The only word I have for this graphic novel is horrible. The art makes dexter look like a dorky guy rather than a handsome genius. The other characters just didn't seem right either. It seemed like the artist was trying way to hard. 

The story is sort of slow in the beginning, it felt like it took years to get anywhere. I almost put it down. I rarely say things like this but the story lacked any believability which is something I look for in a story like this. 

Over all I don't recommend this at all.
