Fun idea for a book . I think DC should bring it back. This version is from the 80's reader could create heroes and mail them in ,winner appeared in the book. I can only imagine how many large breasted slutty costumes heroines sprang from the minds of 13 year-old boys...

Tags Group: Dial H for hero,Title: Adventure Comics, creator: Carmine Infantino




George Perez did alot of the covers.

That . . . actually, considering Prometheus' hook, tying it somehow to the H-Dial/V-Dial would be . . . interesting . . . veddy interesting.

I used to love Dial H, I had a complete set some time ago. Before I had to get rid of my collection, *sigh*. Great to see it again.

Circumstances. I needed money immediately, in any way I could get it. And selling my entire collection was one of those ways.

I miss those comics. Dial "H", a full run of Micronauts, the original Mage series by Matt Wagner (I couldn't get into the second series), New Teen Titans, all of the High Society and Church & state arcs of Cerebus (including a signed copy of everyone stuck in a closet), etc.

They did do a revival of this a few years back. I believe a lot of people didn't like it. I don't remember enough of it to say whether it was bad or not.

Nah, the basic story (person gets HERO dial thing, becomes hero) was there.

Unfortunately, things had a way of going awfully wrong. And I distinctly recall the thing being unreasonably... gory.

But there -was- a storyline to everything, and it all wrapped up in the final issue.

H.E.R.O. I still own the first trade and am sad there was never any others.

I really liked it and I recall at the time that it was getting quite a few good reviews. Not 10/10 scores, but a respectable 7 or 8.

I liked the concept, too, where the dial kept jumping around to different people, so each story was how different people dealt with it. It was like a superhero version of 100 Bullets. Really great stuff, to be honest.

I actually have the issue of this series where they fight an outerspace squid man and a giant walking spatial anomoly like somebody made a giant cut out of the starry night sky at a planetarium and brought it to like.

It also had lizard men and gambling little people (saying little people because I don't wish to be yelled at by the Mods again).

The first three scans (not counting the cover) were drawn by Don Heck if you wanted to add him to the tags.

At this point someone would probably accuse them of ripping off Ben 10.

I was just thinking that... :) Well, that and half a dozen other comics (Since, y'know, Warlock is obviously based on Upgrade :) )

Well, I always considered Ben 10 to be the Animated version of Dial H.

This was a legitimately fun series, but I fear reader-submitted superheroes wouldn't work today... Everyone would want to preserve their trademark for their webcomic (or somesuch) or just submit horribly ironic or dirty stuff.

It was a more innocent time.

Yeah, of course. Just look at some of the submitted Legion and Supergirl costumes, they're almost as stripperific as modern-day superheroine costumes.

Rainbeaux is very much like what Halo (of Outsiders) was later. Her few powers she used here are switched a little except for red is the same. Halo's orange is concussive not gravity, where green is stasis not wind so they seem swapped. Wonder if Rainbeax was Halo's inspiration - I always liked the Aurakle aspect of Halo.
