5.0 out of 5 stars My advice? Buy this.
Loved this arc.

Standard graphic novel binding with artwork plastering the front and back - the story is sublime; the pacing reminds me those old murder mystery books, where one answer is sought and then 10 more questions are found.

Batman is definitely Batman in this one... brooding, methodical and downright awesome - his representation definitely...

2.0 out of 5 stars It's just not that good
Loeb gives us a grand-tour of the Batmanverse with a series of very short stories of Batman working his way through the rogue's gallery, interspersed with a ham-fisted romantic sub-plot and a series of flashbacks about a new character.

It's not good. It's a desperate attempt to breathe life into the Batman franchise with a new villain, and to bring in new...

Loved this arc.

Standard graphic novel binding with artwork plastering the front and back - the story is sublime; the pacing reminds me those old murder mystery books, where one answer is sought and then 10 more questions are found.

Batman is definitely Batman in this one... brooding, methodical and downright awesome - his representation definitely fits the general public's perception of him (IE: Christian Bale Batman - a little more wiser though)

Artwork is great too. The story really puts this one on the top shelf though - plus, it neatly resolves itself, so none of that cliff hanger nish-nash.

In summary, it's a great suspenseful mystery fraught with danger, insidious intent and villains... just the right amount.

Amazing story + Amazing art. Mr Lee does a fantastic job depicting the words of Mr Loeb. This duo is infernal when it comes to graphic novel story telling. Highly recommended by me.

This review is from: Batman: Hush (Paperback)
One of the best and famous bat stories ever is what happens. Who is Hush, what does he want with Batman? Well my friends if u dont know, then u must read this book. Jeph Loeb shines, and Jim Lee breaths life into his words. The paperback itself is well made with high quality gloss paper and makes Jim Lees eye candy pop.

while this one wasn't as specatular as other batman graphic novels i've read, i enjoyed it. very good suspense. a lot of emotion, and as you read further into the story you get some good surprises. and the most important part of the review you wanna hear - it is well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing...just amazing., May 13 2012

This review is from: Batman: Hush (Paperback)
Wow this book blew my mind. It was so much better than i expected. It has some epic action, great variety of characters (Killer Croc, Catwoman, Scarecrow, Nightwing, etc) and they all fit in here perfectly. This is a mystery book and when you find out who the big villian is, you will be shocked cause its the least person youd expected. One of my favorote Batman stories.

The combination of great story with beautiful art made this book a thoroughly engrossing read. This is some of Jim Lee's best work.

A graphic novel that includes most of Batman's rogue gallery, what more do you need to be convinced?

2.0 out of 5 stars It's just not that good, Jan. 5 2014
This review is from: Batman: Hush (Paperback)
Loeb gives us a grand-tour of the Batmanverse with a series of very short stories of Batman working his way through the rogue's gallery, interspersed with a ham-fisted romantic sub-plot and a series of flashbacks about a new character.

It's not good. It's a desperate attempt to breathe life into the Batman franchise with a new villain, and to bring in new readers by re-introducing the various Batman characters.

In many ways it's similar to Kevin Smith's much-maligned "Widening Gyre" - the romance is clumsy, Batman's voice feels wrong (it's *hard* to write a romance for a hyper-stoic character like Batman, I know) and the whirlwind tour of the Batverse feels even more rushed and messy than Smith's. But the art is good, so there's that.

The flashback stuff seems like Loeb is doing a pantomime of better-written comics. It just doesn't work. It's beautifully drawn and coloured, but it feels very forced, trying to make us care about Bruce Wayne's childhood relationship with a heretofore never-mentioned character.
