The return of a Silver Age comic title, on redial for new readers. From DC, Dial ‘H’ for Hero.

The Hero Within is written by Sam Humphries, illustrated by Joe Quinones. And it’s delightful. It has just the right combination of playful imagination, big bright graphics, retro and new icons, and superheroes. And phone books full of superheroes. All over the place.

It’s the story of teenage Miguel, who works for his uncle. On a food truck. Until certain things happen, and then it certainly gets entertaining! Enter a cute girl! Enter superheroes! Funny, witty, imaginative. Off to a great start! Press issue 2 for more!

DC, Dial H for Hero #1, $3.99 for 23 pages of content. Rated Teen

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
