Dexter's Laboratory Wiki

Dexter's Laboratory Issue #1 is the first issue of DC's Dexter's Laboratory comic book series.


Let the Comic Begin![]

After reading a Justice Friends comic book, Dexter decides that he wants to have his own comic book too, so he invents the Kirbytron 2000 which transforms him into a heroic comic book character version of himself.



  • This issue was later adapted into an episode of Dexter's Laboratory titled "Comic Relief".
  • The Kirbytron 2000 is a reference to legendary comic writer and "King of Comics" Jack Kirby, responsible for the greatest comics of all time and creator of the most notable classic characters of Marvel Comics (many of which are spoofed by the Justice Friends, who even appear in this comic).
