Daydream Believer: Preview Dial H For Hero #1 From DC Comics

by Olly MacNamee

This week sees the newest iteration of DC Comics’ more magnificently daft properties, Dial H for Hero, relaunch under the Wonder Comics banner giving the DCU more colour and charm in the process. Alongside Wonder Twins and Naomi, this fourth title looks to build on the legacy of DC’s younger characters. The first three new titles have been well received by critic and comic book readers alike and judging from this preview, Dial H for Hero will be welcome too. Take a look at the debut issue of this six-issue mini-series, out this week from DC Comics, from writer Sam Humphries (Harley Quinn) and art by Joe Quinones (Howard the Duck).

Miguel, a teen daredevil, becomes the newest wielder of the Hero Dial—a rotary phone-like device that grants the user superpowers for one hour when they dial H-E-R-O. Will he rise as a new hero in the DC Universe or crumble under the weight of responsibility the dial thrusts upon him? This blistering new six-issue miniseries joins the Wonder Comics lineup with stories by award-winning fan favorite Sam Humphries (Harley Quinn)) and art by Joe Quinones (Howard the Duck).
