‘Dial H For Hero #4’ (review)

Written by Sam Humphries
Illustrated by Joe Quinones
Published by DC Comics

 

This book has been much better than expected. Writer Sam Humphries is really delivering the goods on this title. The issues are fast and fun and very enjoyable. There are also a lot of surprises continually in the book. I am actually now sad that it’s just a miniseries.

The beginning of this issue has Miguel and Summer encountering a Batman safety guard robot in the Justice League Detroit headquarters.

While there, they encounter Snapper Carr and it’s a pretty hilarious scene.

Humphries really has a knack for spinning these classic DC characters into something really interesting. His writing really shines in this book.

Miguel is on the hunt for Superman.

Snapper tries to help the two of them. But it ends up in complete disaster. Snapper does some things on the computers and the others watch.

While doing so, Snapper activates these  Justice League robots, much like the Batman robot we met at the beginning of the issue. Things get pretty intense fairly quickly.

From there,  it’s only a matter of time before Miguel activates the Dial H for Hero device. Snapper Carr and Miguel fight to use the device. That’s when things get completely out of hand.

So the device is used and we get to see the pair fight against the Justice League robots. It’s hilarious. There are so many great bits here(the Frank Miller Sin City reference killed me). Humphries does a great job of letting artist Joe Quinones run wild with the visuals. It’s great and just an enjoyable experience.

The ending is another cliffhanger and I’m okay with that. It’s really a great issue and the story is told very well. I’m interested to see what happens in the last two issue and then quietly hope for an ongoing series. It’s been great.

RATING: A
