A New York Times Bestseller!

Hugo Award-winning novelist China Mieville breathes new life into a classic DC Comics series as part of the second wave of DC Comics—The New 52.

In the small run-down town of Littleville, CO, a troubled young man stumbles upon the lost H-Dial and all of the secrets and power it possesses. It has been many years since the H-Dial has been seen, though legions of villains have been scouring the globe looking for it and its ability to transform users into a variety of superheros and take on their powers and psyches. Will our hero be able to harness the power of the H-Dial and protect it from falling into the hands of evil? Will this newfound power plunge our hero to madness? And will we ever discover where the H-Dial came from and its true meaning?

Clarke Award and the British Fantasy Award; THE SCAR, winner of the Locus Award and the British Fantasy Award; IRON COUNCIL winner of the Locus Award and the Arthur C.

From Booklist:

DC takes its most delightfully naïve Silver Age concept—a device that turns the operator into a new superhero each time he or she dials the letters H-E-R-O—and puts it in the hands of an auteur of dark fantasy, novelist China Miéville (Railsea, 2012). Miéville gives the dial to a hapless, out-of shape schlub, plunging him into battle in such darkly comic guises as Captain Lachrymose, Boy Chimney, and Iron Snail. Miéville also gives the dial a mysterious past that winds through not only the history of telephony but also into alternate universes and the depths of the abyss itself. Indeed, while he creates a cast of supporting heroes and enemies in the surrealist vein of Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol, the story comes most alive when the novelist is on comfortably weird ground, exploring the nebulous clues and dire nature of the object. Santalouco provides grim cityscapes and gritty characters for the opening chapters, while David Lapham plays counterpoint with a clean, bright style that serves the slightly lighter-hearted closing chapters well. --Jesse Karp
