Offensive! Shocking! Unspeakable! Manteau cracks open the Refusenik Dossier and with heroes like these, who needs villains?

    Dial H #6 is a perfect showcase for the real potential of this series. It's funny and thoughtful in equal measure, and it reads very much unlike any other book in the New 52 lineup. Read Full Review

    I really love this title, and I cannot recommend that people check it out enough. It's so strange that it's hard to even label it as a DC comic, which means it's perfectly accessible for people who don't usually read cape books. As we head into the second story, the series should continue to expand it's mythology and the mythology of the H Dial, making for truly interesting and thought provoking comics. Read Full Review

    A fun, amusing break for the series, but one that puts a hold on still unsolved, half-formed mysteries. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Nov 13, 2012

    Guest artist David Lapham's more straightforward, conventional approach to the visuals is compliments the more matter-of-fact, linear tone of Miville's script. There's a brighter tone to the art that works well with the lighter tone of the story elements. Lapham brings a solid sense of comic timing and reaction to the characters, and he brings some of the same weird sense of character design that's been such a fun part of previous issues. Brian Bolland's covers continue to allow this underdog title to stand out, and it punctuates the mature and intelligent tone of Miville's take on this oddball, campy Silver Age concept.

    Entertainment Fuse - Elvis Dutan Nov 8, 2012

    The art in this issue has been dropped into the hands of David Lapham this time around. Lapham displays a competent range of expression and form for this stand-alone story, even if his work does lack the raw vibrant life that former artist Mateus Santolouco was able to bring to the table. Overall this was a solid issue and a nicely calm relaxation from the hectic events of the first arc. Read Full Review
