Dial H for Whiteout, Death Notes, and Fashion Beasts (aka comic tings)

I am not good at a lot of lady things and growing my nails is one of them For the first time in a while, I have a wee bit of growth on all of my nails (they will probably all break tomorrow) therefore typing this is very weird to me. 956 more words

Dial H review — #5: Disconnected

WARNING: SPOILERS! (Review index)

Now, after that prologue interlude, we come to issue #5, the end of the Abyss arc at last. At the end of issue #4, Nelson, The Squid and Manteau found themselves in a face-off with Ex Nihilo, now wielding her own dial (and currently “wearing” a hero made up of Swiss army knives). 1,743 more words

Dial H review — #2: Connection Lost

WARNING: SPOILERS! (Review index)

It’s the second issue of Dial H! I think this one is a big improvement over the first. We see more heroes and meet more characters, Nelson is a lot more likeable, and the villains’ villainous doings are far less obtuse than in the first issue. 1,053 more words
