China Mieville’s ‘Dial H’ Says Final Goodbye With 20-Artist ‘Dial E’ Issue For Villains Month [Special Wordless Preview]

Untitled-2

When it comes to the subject of DC Comics' "Villains Month" -- whereby every title in the publisher's New 52 line of superhero books is being "taken over" by a supervillain -- most of the conversation seems to focus on arcane retailing controversies about the initiative's 3-D covers or reader debate about questionable character revamps. What really got our attention was Dial E, the villain takeover issue of Justice League #23.3, a comic that's distinct because it serves as a coda to one of DC's best series in years, the recently concluded Dial H created by China Miéville and Mateus Santolouco about Nelson Jent, a schlubby bro who temporarily becomes a brand new and occasionally universe-traversing superhero when he dials "H-E-R-O" on a mysterious phone-like device. Dial E is an auspicious sendoff for the quirky and acclaimed series, one that features 20 pages each drawn by a different artist. Many of them are ComicsAlliance favorites like Jock, Emma Rios, Frazer Irving, Sloane Leong and. Annie Wu.

Courtesy of DC, we've got advance looks at five artists' pages, but even better, they're without any letterings so you art fans can enjoy their great work without any obfuscations. Additionally we're pleased to preview the first five story pages as well, featuring the words of Mieville and pictures by Mateus Santolouco, Carla Berrocal, Riccardo Burchielle and Liam Sharp.
