Dial H was a DC Comics superhero title launched in 2012 as part of the second wave of The New 52. It is a contemporary, frequently humorous take on the Silver Age title Dial H for Hero. It was written by novelist China Miéville, featuring artwork primarily by Mateus Santolouco with Brian Bolland as the cover artist.
The comic tells of an out-of-shape man named Nelson Jent discovering that dialing H-E-R-O at a mysterious phone booth will transform him into unique, though short-lived, superheroes. Each time creates a new persona with a new set of powers, eventually returning him to his normal self.
DC Comics announced the cancellation of the title in May 2013. It concluded with issue #15 on August 7, 2013. An epilogue issue titled Justice League #23.3 Dial E was released as part of Villains Month initiative.
