Read full description of the books:
I re-read not only this volume but the entire series in the original comic book monthly format. This series premiered in 2003 and lasted for 22 issues but if you have all of them, it makes for a great story. Many Silver Age fans remember Dial H for HERO, a series of short tales featuring young Robby Reed, who discovered a mysterious dial that would transform him into a variety of weird superheroes to save his small town in Colorado. Robby's adventures were the ultimate childhood wish fulfillment. What would happen if an adult had the dial and became a superhero?
Pfeifer's series is a set of short stories for the first 14 issues. In the first one, a young man named Jerry Feldon, a soda jerk going nowhere, find the dial while washing dishes. (Who lost it? A old lady in a senior citizen home who used it to transform herself into a young hero.)
Jerry transforms into a hero and discovers the joy of flight, super-strength, and the ego-boost that comes along with it. But everything goes wrong soon afterward. Jerry can't control his powers, he makes mistakes, even causes his sweetheart to get injured while foiling a robbery. He even tries to commit suicide in a glorious manner.
The artwork in the first year of the run is mostly by Kano. Kano's style and storytelling was perfect, since it required someone good at drawing everyday life and people mixed with the fantastic. The tone of the stories seemed very much in the vein of Will Eisner's Spirit. Some arcs were dark, others humorous. After Jerry's story concluded, the Dial bounces around to a variety of people:
An executive who becomes so addicted to the Dial that he loses his family and job.
A school girl who uses the Dial to become part of the in-crowd.
All of these tales are just superb. Brewing in the background as a sub-plot are glimpses of the adult Robby Reed, who is in prison and struggling to learn of the Dial's location.
