    Default Is anyone here reading Dial H?

    Because it's one of the most promising new series I've read in a long, long time. Endlessly creative, and completely heartfelt, DC has a real (critical) hit on its hands.

    If you are, or if you aren't, check out this little thing I wrote up about it!

    I'm reading the series and enjoy the run. I just wished the that 0 issue came after the end of this current story arc.

    I read #1 and it stunk. One of the worst comics I've read in a llooonnnnggggg time.

    I didn't drop it yet, though, because those covers by Bolland are killer.

    I read #0 and it was actually quite good. I don't know if I'll go back and reread 1 or read 2 to 4.

    I've been reading it so far, but looking for a jumping off point. And Ponticelli becoming the new artist with #7 has given me exactly what I wanted. Uggh.

    Dial H has gotten better with each new issue. Keep reading!

    It's a fantastic book. So dense and layered. DC is lucky to have someone like China Mieville. He should write a Vertigo book.

    Absolutely love this comic, even though it's been a bit all over the place. The zero issue was amazing.

    I wanted to like it, I really did, but after giving the story six issues to pull me in I had to drop it. Maybe it will read better as a collected edition, but the plot was just moving way too slow for me.

    Lovely Bolland covers, though.

    Same. Something never quite gelled for me.
