Dial H #2 (Ferrocochlean sense tingling Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sun Jun 10, 2012 9:36 am

Since reading #1 of this title last month, I’ve started reading one of China Mieville’s novels, Perdido Street Station (which is excellent so far by the way), so my brain is more in gear with Mieville’s unique mind, and as such, I enjoyed this issue a lot more, even though there was probably too much going on. There’s two ways to judge this book, one is to just admire Mieville’s imagination in coming up with all of the weird different superheroes. This issue featured 8 heroes (and another was mentioned but not seen) and each of them was hilarious, I think my favourite was Shamanticore, but I also liked the one we saw the most of, Iron Snail. These characters are just funny. But as I said, there’s more to this than just silly characters, there’s serious stuff going on here too. Nelson’s friend Darren is brutally murdered by a strange villain, The Squid, who is a pretty big mystery, he seems to be in control, but he’s doing what XN says. And what was with his speech patterns? Hmm. I’m also interested in the red-headed doctor, is she also the masked red-head? Is she XN? What’s her deal? This book is full-to-the-brim with stuff, and I think I’ll need to give it a re-read to fully comprehend what’s going on. But even when you don’t understand, there’s still the fun of Pelican Army and Ctrl-Alt-Del. Mateus Santolouco’s art was brilliant once again too, he’s given a lot to do by Mieville, and he can do it all.

I'm really surprised how much i love this book. I love how the "heroes" the main character turns into, are the most off the wall heroes.

I liked this issue to, it should be interesting to see just what is up with the Squid, not to mention the woman in the silver mask and purple cloak.

I've been enjoying that aspect too, I laughed at Hole Punch. I have to say that my favourite of all of them was Double Bluff.

I really didn't warm to the first issue (and I thought Kid Chimney was a cool concept). Is this more of the same?

As a fan of the Dial H concept, I love this series. I'm looking forward to seeing where China goes with this.

I hope this series makes it. The worst part is seeing glimpses of characters that sound fascinating as throwaways, but that's par for the Dial H course. Always leave 'em wanting more!

It's a rotary dial. There's no redial button. :smt011

"Perdido Street Station" is next on my list. The City and The City" was confusing at first but turned into a total page-turner. He's excellent at writing suspense and action scenes.
I'm thinking he's like Morrison. He throws out weird one-off lines and references that go over your head at first but later on it all comes together. I think once he hits his stride with this title it should be tons o' more fun ! 8)
