Batman: Hush is a thrilling mystery in which Batman sets out to discover the identity of a mysterious mastermind using The Joker, The Riddler, Ra's al Ghul and the Dark Knight's other enemies - and allies - as pawns in a plan to wreak havoc.

I've got to say that some of my favorite Batman books have to be when multiple heroes & villains make an appearance.  I was not disappointed there!  Catwoman, The Huntress, Nightwing, many peoples!  Then it just seemed like an endless parade of all the major villains stopped by to give the Bats a hard time in some way or another.

And the art, dang.  I loved the watercolory flashback scenes best and I'm always a sucker for full color books.

I read these two much faster than it's taken me to read The Long Halloween (which I'm still not finished with).  The story was much faster paced and it kept me pretty hooked!


  1. These have been long time want to reads for me! Glad to hear you liked them so much. I agree, I get salivating when Batman's villains gather together in one book :-)

  2. This is one of my favorite Batman story lines and I personally think Jim Lee is an amazing artist. I loved this so much I bought the Absolute edition that adorns my end table by the couch for all to see but not touch.


leave me some love. or hate. don't mind either, but if you leave the hate be prepared. i bite back.
