    Miville continues his hot streak on this ambitious series, but is somewhat dragged down by Ponticelli's loving but insufficient art. Read Full Review

    We never have any idea where this book is going, and it will likely read better if you read collections to get whole story arcs at once. But Dial H is certainly worth your time to experience – and I'm looking forward to seeing if this has any actual effect on Flash comics. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 8, 2013

    This was a fun issue, with a nice connection to one of the brightest, most-upbeat heroes in the DC Universe. Miville makes good use of stretching into the shared universe to draw new readers without tapping the Dark Knight for yet another appearance to bolster sales. It's a brave, bold move and one that paid off at least a little bit. It's also one that could become quite tiresome if used too much. That doesn't seem to be the case here, as "Dial H" #11 has no shortage of new takes on familiar concepts while mixing in a few eccentric new ideas along the way. Read Full Review

    While there is a shadow of an interesting plot with the Centipede, whose finger-steepling villainy is refreshingly camp, and the truth about the powers obtained with the H-dials, it's difficult to overlook the issue's glaring flaws, both in terms of the narrative and the art. Read Full Review

    . . $3, 20pgs. too many ADs; Stunning gatefold cover, & for realz! . . . Not having read Dial H, aside for the Zero issue, i am a bit lost and it seemed loaded with in continuity details that moved by fast. SO not the best intro issue, but a very good one. Feels like a weird comic done right, the angles are weird the characters are weird and so are the powers. Good action and the art is quite good for a lesser dark title, its unique stuff.
