Artists and StyleEdit

The artist (at least for Dark Echo) is Bill Sienkiewicz, with the story being written by Tim Schlattmann.


While Early Cuts is meant to symbolize killings done by Dexter prior to the events in the Showtime series, some problems arise with some of his victims. First is Gene must be noted that this kill took place 10 years before Alex Timmons, who was the first in Dexter's blood slide collection. While Early Cuts clearly has it when Dexter doesn't take a blood slide, there is a cut on Gene's face during the flashback in the TV series that suggests Dexter took a blood sample from him (which could not have been possible 10 years prior to Alex). As for Cindy Landon, we can assume it doesn't make much of a difference anyway (she appeared to be wrapped in plastic yet they changed it to a box for her to be sawed in half in Early Cuts).

However, Early Cuts may be the final definitive version as it was released post-Season 2 (and Gene Marshall's story was released post-Season 4), thus ruling out Gene's appearance in the TV series, Season 1.
