Summer Pickens and Miguel Montez travel the Multiverse to visit Earth-32 in DC’s Dial H For Hero issue 10.

The Gothamopolis heroes are amalgams of Earth’s heroes if they were all tossed into a blender. That’s all very interesting until Mister Thunderbolt drops by.

This title never ceases to amaze and amuse me. It’s a comic of free spirit, tied at one end like a helium balloon, drifting in a lazy, erratic arc. Not to suggest that the creators are lazy, just that the story beats are on their own clock, the art style is dazzlingly eclectic too. There are plenty of pastiches from the past, including the front cover’s Saturday Evening Post theme.

You will likely enjoy the ride in Dial H For Hero, written by Sam Humphries, with incredible art by Joe Quinones and colour by Jordan Gibson.

DC, Dial H For Hero #10, $3.99 for 23 pages of content. 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!!
