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.

    But Why Tho? - Nikko Soto Apr 24, 2019

    I had an absolute blast in continuing to read this action packed coming-of-age story. It does an incredible job in making Miguel question himself rather than thrusting him into the role as hero without any dilemmas. Things are most likely going to pick up fast, especially because of the way the issue left off. I'm looking forward to reading the next issue and will definitely look at the previous incarnations of heroes. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Carl Bryan Apr 26, 2019

    Again, this subtle reinvention of the red phone with the "Tingling 4" has me all in. And it's only the second issue and the kids are going to meet up with Superman. If Sam Humphries does us all right, Supes may have a tingling 4 on his forehead. Wait is that a phone ringing...? Read Full Review

    I'm just sorry this is only six issues, because it's easily the most inventive book in DC's stable right now Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Apr 25, 2019

    It's a bold, irreverent book, with a nothing-is-off-limits attitude that I find refreshing. In an era where so many titles are beholden to continuity, it's refreshing to see something so eager to go off the rails. Even the all-ages titles such as Bugs Bunny or Scooby-Doo Team-Up have a need to stay in their respective lanes. But this one, wherever it's going, doesn't need a road. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Apr 24, 2019

    The second issue of Dial H for Hero is just as much fun as the first and is still a promising start to what could be an exciting new series. Heres hoping future issues can manage some substance along with the razzle-dazzle. Read Full Review

    Humphries might be rushing the origin story somewhat but he's already established a solid premise that should keep the book entertaining for months to come. Read Full Review

    After the spot-on Rob Liefeld parody in the series' opening issue, Dial H for Hero managed to top itself this month by nailing a hysterical Dragon Ball imitation. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Apr 24, 2019

    Dial H for Hero #2 checked off every box that could have kept you on the fence about where you see yourself keeping up with this book. As an ambitious book for Wonder Comics, it is so far being approached with the sense that readers need to feel satisfied by the end of the issue. That is how I felt at least when the ball got rolling with momentum. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Apr 26, 2019

    Humphries' pacing is still a little on the slow side as he tends to serve the bit over pushing the story forward but there's no denying that Dial H for Hero is a fun and inventive title. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 24, 2019

    Themystery of the H-Dial and the Thunderbolt deepens, and we get to see a couple moregoofy, stylized superheroes. If you were expecting something else from thisseries, you were barking up the wrong telephone pole. But if you're disposed tothis sort of thing then you'll probably enjoy the latest iteration.
