    But Why Tho? - Nikko Soto Jul 24, 2019

    It's exciting to know that the comic series was extended for another six issues. Although this issue felt like the story was wrapping up, the end made makes it clear that there's so much more to be told. Things are looking quite grim for both Summer and Miguel. I'm excited to see how they manage to deal with their respective dilemmas and what steps they take to become heroes. I have no doubt that the creative team will deliver another phenomenal six issues.

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

    Dial H for HERO #5 is a rip-roaring ride, while also ruminating on what makes a hero--the powers or the motivation? This title continues to be a hidden gem of DC Comics current lineup, and possibly the most heartfelt of the uniformly fun Wonder Comics line. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 24, 2019

    Sam Humprhies and Joe Quinones continue the first arc of their mind-bending road trip superhero adventure with Dial H for Hero #5 that eschews the flashy transformations of the first four issues for a more emotional journey through the mysterious Heroverse " but still delivers the visual thrills thanks to Quinones' unique style.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 24, 2019

    All the answers you've been waiting for are right here, and yet there was so much more to discover along the way! Dial H for Hero #5 was one of the strongest issues so far in the series, and once again left me happy that they decided to bump this series up to twelve issues. It would have been a crime to let this series end after only six. Maybe there would have been a second part in some months or the next year, but would you have really wanted to wait after everything now revealed to us? After what Mr. Thunderbolt is able to unleash upon the world at the end of this issue? Read Full Review

    If you're not a fan of a comic trying to explain metaphysical fictional concepts, the first half of the issue might not click, but things quickly get back on track with another emotional flashback involving Miguel and Superman. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jul 24, 2019

    Is the H Dial likely to become a staple of the DCU, like the Bat Signal or the Guardians of Oa. Highly unlikely. But it's a fun property to drag out from time to time and experiement, and remind readers of a time when comic books could be fun, without the doom and gloom introduced by the Dark Knight Returns. If that's your cup of tea, then Dial H is not. Read Full Review
