Exclusive Preview: ‘Dial H’ #13

Dial H is one of the most unique books DC puts out right now. And we finally get to see the DCU from the perspective of Open-Window Man.

OK, so China Mieville’s book isn’t exactly an orthodox superhero book. It features a fat guy and an old hippie using a metaphysical phone dial to “dial up” the powers of various heroes, ranging from big names like the Flash to the most ridiculous heroes and heroines Mieville can come up with, ranging from the Iron Snail to Bumper Carla.

It evokes classic DC books such as Grant Morrison’s run on Doom Patrol in how weird it is, and this issue is no exception as Mieville offers a very… different take on the origin of Batman. See for yourself…
