5.0 out of 5 stars How it should be... Nov. 10 2006
This is how a Batman story should be. Showcases most of the villians and heros in Batman's life. Great art. Even better story. Must own for any comic fan. And it being oversized and hardcover makes it even better.

The best ART. It's stunning!
The best STORY. It's original. It's nuanced.
Warning: once you read this one, EVERYTHING ELSE PALES.
I wish Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee did more.

This book is abolutely fantastic (no pun intended). The Absolute format really lets Jim Lee's art shine (even more than usual). The story is pretty good, too. To me, this book was well worth what I paid for it.

By Sebastian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
One of many absolute edition reviews i made, largely so you can get a feel for the look of the book as well as its bonus features. my vids are mostly about the particular edition, with minimal critique of the story/art itself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comics have come a long way.... March 8 2006
By Todd Bovair - Published on Amazon.com
Batman has been reinterpreted so many times its becoming hard to zero in on the character anymore. Lately, Batman has been portrayed as an untrusting, unfriendly JERK to even his best 'friends' (Batman has no real friends in the current incarnation of the character). There is a reason storywise for portraying him this way (see Infinite Crisis) but it does make the character tiresome.
In Hush, Batman is portrayed as more of the mid-range Batman: not a friendly sort, but still caring enough to be the Batman I remember from the post Frank Miller reinvention of the 80's. Now, Hush is first and foremost a Batman story, so you will have the action and the mystery aspect- but the great thing is, Hush is a VERY mature and complex story. Layers upon layers, and you will need to read CAREFULLY to pick up all the subtlties. The reward for your efforts, of course, is a great story! Plotted much like a supense movie, the story unfolds a bit at a time, while throwing in red herrings to keep you guessing right up until the end. Loeb has written a top notch story, and Jim Lee's art is of course very nice to look at.
While I can't put Hush in the same category as Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, it is an exceptionally constructed story which stays true enough to the Batman character to be enjoyable. Any comic fan who enjoys gritty and/or dark mystery stories should check out Hush. Recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hush Oct. 18 2006
By Jokerita - Published on Amazon.com
First off, hands down to Jim Lee and what those five amazing digits can do! His artwork is intense as it is passionate. It conveys strong emotions ranging from anger, insanity, and lust which fit as the perfect art medium to this story written by Jeph Loeb ("Long Halloween", "Smallville", "Superman for all seasons") who is no stranger to superheroes. What do you get when you combine a mystery full of whodunit, a wonderful cast of characters (I use this loosely, I will go into more detail later) and a story so full of energy leaving you breathless and gasping for more? A wonderful witches brew created by two of the biggest names in the comic books industry, 'Hush'.

When Bruce Wayne's childhood chum Tommy Elliot returns into his life and his collection of rogues behave in new manners, and a new enemy is added to the gallery, it is up to Batman to make the connections. Beautifully written and drawn with unbelievable intricacy, this Batman story is essential to any library, however, I feel that this is a flawed beauty. For one thing, there were to many characters. I guess in the end they did serve a purpose, even a marginal one, but was it really necessary to add Lady Shiva? Perhaps the reward becomes stronger when you take a look and absorb all its nuances and subtleties. It felt like a breath of fresh air to see Harley Quinn get some backbone, but I guess Loeb didn't want to dilute the essence of the curvy jester we all know and love. Oh, well, maybe someone else can do it. The cream of the crop was that the Riddler contributed to this. In fact it was a really good Riddler story, who is by no means an easy character to tackle, alongside the addition of a new villain to coincide and enter the Bat mythos.

Overall, I give it an 9/10. Definetely a read. The Absolute Edition looks stunning whether on your coffee table or book shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm in awe! March 28 2013
By Frederik Tellerup - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I got really caught up in this story - cliffhanger upon cliffhanger - and love the art! Maybe the story as a whole is a bit fly-by, like the tv-series 'Lost', but it is so exiciting while you read it, so I consider it GREAT entertainment ... and did I mention the art? Well, I couldn't mention it too many times in this beautiful giant-sized edition. I got hooked by a youtube video that made the first 4 (of 13) chapters into a motion-comic, and the book itself didn't dissapoint one bit, though the videos are really well made! The binding is the best I have on an absolute edition, well, the Batman Reborn might be just as good - I find these two better then Halloween and Dark Victory, though these last two are also totally fine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! March 23 2007
By Andrew Elder - Published on Amazon.com
I have just started getting into graphic novels with the recent releases of 300 and Sin City in theatres and I must say that I missed quite a bit when I was younger. I just got this the other day and I absolutely love it. I knew the general story line of batman and I must say that I am thoroughly impressed with the attention to detail and the artwork. No regrets here.
