    At times Alberto Ponticelli's style is too harsh and gritty to suit the tone of the story, even acknowledging that this was once intended to be a Vertigo series. His human figures can be too heavily marked by creases and shadows, especially in light of the precise, clean cover art from Brian Bolland. But the general storytelling works well, and Ponticelli never fails to render the bizarre imagery Mieville cooks up each month. Read Full Review

    More than just thought-provoking, this issue is downright thrilling in a way that has nothing to do with typical superhero action. Long may the series live. Read Full Review

    Speaking of the lack of gloss inherent in Ponticelli's leads, it's that which makes the final page all the more interesting. Nelson and Roxie are being quite literally seduced by the alter egos they taking on, and it's easy to see why. The book's big theme centers understandably around identity, so it's both shocking and understandable to watch them living out a situation that, in their "real lives," wouldn't occur. Of course, it's also unsettling, because readers know something they don't -- that the bodies they're wearing belong to other people. "Dial H" #10 has a genuinely compelling ending that should leave readers more than ready for more. Read Full Review

    Dial H is a really nutty book that will likely read better when collected in trade form, but I love that I never have any idea what to expect from it. Read Full Review

    My God this is a mind-boggling book. Mieville is on fire right now with this title! Producing new superheroes every issue requires a great deal of creativity, and fortunately, Mieville is exploding at the seams with it. We continue in this issue with the hero "Glimpse," a clever concept for a hero: you never actually see his whole body, just "glimpses" of him as you catch an arm or a leg of him sticking from off-panel. Very clever, very well-written, and solid art by Ponticelli give us another fantastic issue. Probably the most under-rated title on the shelf.
