Tuesday Roundup: You Can Run or You Can Dial

Villains Month continues this week across The New 52, with the likes of Penguin, Clayface, Eclipso, Ra’s al Ghul, Black Hand, Cheetah and The Rogues running rampant in the pages of your favorite comic books. All of them are must reads for fans of the characters, but there’s one book that’s perhaps a little further down the list that we’d like to point out to you.

This Just Happened: Dial S for Sidekick

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read DIAL H #10 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!)

From the creative team of Hugo award winning novelist China Mieville and artists Alberto Ponticelli and Dan Green, DIAL H transports readers into another world where the H-dial, an unbelievably powerful artifact, can turn you into almost any superhero imaginable. All you have to do is: Dial H for hero!

5.2 Reasons to Read DC Comics...Even if You Don't Like Super Heroes

We love comic books. Clearly. Just look at the piles of single issues stacked on our desks like the world’s most psychotically dangerous game of Jenga. Or take a gander at the literal butt ton (approximately 2.5 pancake pounds for your metric folks out there) of trade paperbacks lining our bookshelves. (Don’t look in the closet though. You don’t want to know what’s in there.)
