A Day at the Office

"A Day at the Office" from Hero Hotline #1 (DC, 1989) by Bob Rozakis, Stephen DeStefano and Kurt Schaffenberger
I only rarely feature a splash from a mini-series in this alphabetical journey through DC Comics, but Hero Hotline is a particular favorite of mine. I loved the idea of low-powered, low-profile heroes you could reach on a Help line and who wouldn't scoff at bringing your cat down from a tree. Mayfair's DC Heroes RPG statted them all up as THE example of comedy superheroics. DeStefano brought in his Zeep the Living Sponge as a night shift cameo, one of my absolute favorite Dial H creations. And when I ran a PbeM (Play by Email) supers role-playing game, one of the four teams you could join was Hero Hotline, and I have to say, it was probably the one that saw the most (and best) activity.
