Praise For Dial H, Volume 1

Praise for Mieville's Dial H:

"Dial H is a terrific tale of an ordinary schlub raised to hero status by accident. It’s an old trope but, as detailed vividly by Mieville, Dial H is full of cleverness and narrative energy."—EW.com's Shelf Life

"Miéville, a mystery/horror novelist, brings raw energy and intelligence to Dial H and it's amazing just how refreshing and invigorating that is."—MTV.com

"Mieville and Burchielli have turned a strange concept into something even more wonderful in "Dial H." Don't pass it up..."—Comicbookresources.com

"Wild, crazy fun. Miéville's ideas are golden from the get-go, and we can only imagine how much zanier they're going to be as the series wears on."—Craveonline.com

"Although Dial H is shorter on visceral horror, it goes longer on comedy, resulting in one of the best of DC Comics’ uneven New 52 relaunches."—Wired.com
