    And thats what makes this issue so bittersweet to boot. This has been an example of Dial H at the top of its game and at its fullest potential new twists, new turns, and endless creativity. Mieville knocks it out of the park in a unique way that hasnt been seen since the first arc. Artist Alberto Ponticelli is in his element with this type of series and putting the light onto the various alternate worlds and beings, its something that shouldnt be a delight but it is one anyway. So now thats upcoming cancellation is quick on its heel, itll be sad to see this go. Its lasted longer than anyone could have expected it to last, so Im willing to follow it up into its swan song and epilogue in the form of Justice League #23.3:Dial E #1, a part of DC Comics' upcoming "Villain Month."

    It'd be churlish to complain too hard about material this intentionally anarchic, since that's also its main appeal, but it's also true that it could stand to be a bit more conventionally structured if it wants to draw in new readers. It's a moot point, considering its impending (and rather disappointing) cancellation. Still, it's a comic that benefits from being re-read, and that's true of this issue more than most. "Dial H" is a great title that'll leave a huge gap when it's gone. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure I can really hope for a sudden, last-minute, Manhunter or Blue Beetle save of the series, but it deserves one just as much as those titles did. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Chris H Jun 9, 2013

    A comics book that features an over weight protagonist who can turn into fourth and fifth tier superheroes or a guy who draws powers from open windows wouldn't seem like the ingredients of one of the best comics being published, but it is. Read Full Review
