Dial H For Hero #1 (2019),
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy
(W) Sam Humphries
(A/CA) Joe Quinones
Miguel, a teen daredevil, becomes the newest wielder of the Hero Dial-a rotary phone-like device that grants the user superpowers for one hour when they dial H-E-R-O. Will he rise as a new hero in the DC Universe or crumble under the weight of responsibility the dial thrusts upon him? This blistering new six-issue miniseries joins the Wonder Comics lineup with stories by award-winning fan favorite Sam Humphries (HARLEY QUINN) and art by Joe Quinones (Howard the Duck).

This is a super fun first issue marred only by the hero that gets dialed up.
Miguel is a boy weighed down by mayonnaise (no, really) and a thirst for the thrill of nearly dying. Saved by 'S'omeone during a near drowning, he's been riding the adrenaline junk train ever since. Life has turned sour though, and he works. And works. And works, for this is what survivors do. After work, he's not correctly primed for a stunt he's attempting, and 'H'ere we go.
Dial the phone. Become the hero. Pretty simple.
Miguel is unburdened by a last name (that I could find) which is weird as *THIS IS AN ALL AGES BOOK!* Doesn't that description above read like its NOT for kids? He's been chasing the thrill of near death since he was 10?!? Well, anyway, you can give this to kids? Because of the imprint?
A cautionary tale of why Marvel 90's comics must never, ever come back. Oh, the pouches, shoulders, and ankles.
I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
