DC's newest version of their old DIAL 'H' FOR HERO property debuted this week, written by fantasy novelist/former Socialist Alliance candidate for the UK House of Commons/university professor China Mieville.

Here are four pages from issue 1.

When down-on-his-luck schlub Nelson sees his friend being beaten up by thugs, he tries to dial for help in old phone booth. His fingers fumbling and hitting the wrong numbers, he suddenly finds himself transformed into a ghoulish character that calls itself Boy Chimney:

It's not very clear in this page, but the smoke's emanating from his stovepipe hat/chimney.

Later, wanting to keep the mob off his friend's back on a more permanent basis, he returns to the phone booth. He dials the exact same numbers, hoping to become Boy Chimney again, but this time things go somewhat differently...

Captain Lachrymose gives me hope for this. There are so many ways to do an emo superhero badly (and some of them have already been done), but "Every tear makes me stronger" just made me giggle.
