Teen daredevil Miguel and runaway Summer travel to the home of the Flash in Central City to steal back the H-Dial as a secret former wielder of the powerful device swears to do anything to become a hero again-including handing the dial to Mr. Thunderbolt, the villainous entity working to steal the Dial.

On the road (in a food truck full of mayonnaise!) with the amazing H-Dial that gifts the user with a new superpower every time they place a call, teenage runaways Miguel and Summer come under attack by others who crave the power the dial offers. With cryptic calls from the “phone zone” and no one to turn to for help, the adolescent adventurers come to a breaking point, where they either must work together or lose more than just the dial.

Review: Dial H for Hero #1

Dial H for Hero #1

For as long as legends have existed we have always aspired to be one. This is why we strive to do better than those who came before us. We all in some form or fashion want our names to live forever. That’s how we get epics like The Odyssey. In the modern age of superheroes, in some ways, we still yearn for this.

This is why the comic Shazam! was such a fan favorite when I was growing up. The main character is just a kid who gets powers by saying one word. Who would not want that even just for a few minutes? In the next book from the Wonder Comics line at DC, we get Dial H For Hero, a teenager finds out how it is be a hero for an hour

We meet Miguel, a young man whose life changed the one day he was saved by Superman. It’s an event that would make him a daredevil, often tempting fate, but unfortunately, he feels like his life otherwise is at a dead end living in Devil’s Canyon, California.  Everything changes as he attempts one stunt, and things don’t go as planned as one thing leads to another leading him to fall off a canyon. This is when miraculously a mysterious red rotary phone appears out of nowhere. Someone on the other end of the line says his name and instructs him do dial “H.” By issue’s end he becomes a new superhero, one with superpowers even he could imagine and more than enough chaos in his wake.

Overall, a fun comic book which will pull in readers as it remembers why we love superhero comics in the first place. The story by Sam Humphries is hilarious, keen, and very relevant. The at by Joe Quinones is realistic and magnificent. Altogether, an outstanding debut issue that brings loads of fun to comic books.

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).
