4.0 out of 5 stars A New Batman Classic ! August 26, 2009
Format:Paperback
Finally! Previously available as two separate volumes, this is the first time all 12 monthly issues of the Loeb/Lee run have been put together, giving us the complete HUSH story.

Jeph Loeb gives us a very good detective story. Better is his character-study, nuanced approach to the Dark Knight, himself. Loeb manages to bring fresh eyes to the Batman, displaying a longing and a loneliness previously unrevealed. The scenes with Catwoman are some of the best in years. Those with Nightwing (the original Robin) show growth and a new maturity for both characters. And, of course, the new villain - Hush, is a great addition to the rogues gallery.

Jim Lee's contribution is possibly even greater. He draws some of the most iconic and visually stunning pictures of Batman, EVER. There was Neal Adams, Norm Breyfogle, Dick Sprang, and Alex Ross. Add to the `Top 5 Batman Artists of All Time' list - Jim Lee. And he may have taken over the Number 1 spot, at that! Sharp, dynamic, and nothing less than electrifying, Lee's work here is some of the greatest artwork ever done in a graphic novel or comic book.

Ranking high on the list (just after The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, and Batman: Absolution), HUSH instantly becomes one of the most important and character-defining Batman stories of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to get back into Batman! September 10, 2009
By Tai
Format:Paperback
I've been out of the comic loop for a long time. Especially DC comics. Trades are great since I have no comic book shops local to me and I like nice big volumes to take in and digest over a long afternoon.

Batman: Hush is great in regards to letting you get back into the mind of the Bat. Hush, him(or her)self, is a great villain that is well done and there is also a good number of cameos by other mainstays and a twisted ending to the whole thing to boot!

I highly, highly recommend it to new or longtime Batman fans. I feel you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate Batman story September 6, 2009
By km
Format:Paperback
I'm not much of a comics reader, but Batman is easily my favorite character (although I'm in the minority who have found his live-action adaptations to be disappointing). And this particular collection is THE comic book for people who don't often read comic books.

Only a passing knowledge of Batman lore is needed to enjoy the story, and virtually all of the characters in his history make appearances of varying degrees. The highlight is his battle of wits with Superman, and seeing the famous contrast in styles between the two characters at work here, both as combatants and allies. It makes one desperately wish they'd make a live-action crossover film (and while one almost did get made before these current reboots, it seems unlikely now, save for the upcoming Justice League film). There are also some great interactions here between Clark, Bruce, and Lois.

Jim Lee's style can be a bit too technical and lacking in character, but I'm still a fan of his clean, dynamic style, and it's great to see it applied to the Batman world. His Catwoman/Selina is particularly memorable. The way all the characters are shoehorned into the story can come off as contrived in some regards, but for the most part it works and makes for a highly entertaining adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing... January 15, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm not a huge Batman man, myself... this graphic novel is actually the first I've read of its kind. I've been around comics and its characters for a while, so I've gathered some knowledge throughout the years. Childhood movies and television shows stuck with me more than I know. With that, this book was still amazing.

The story unfolds so well. The use of such a canon of characters is a testament to Jeph Loeb's writing. Batman feels like Batman.

Jim Lee's art is actually my most favorite aspect. His style is above and beyond what I thought I knew in comics. I still expect those weird dot-matrix colors and drawings of the old days (Not to say that style doesn't have its charm), but this artwork surprised me. I'm officially on the hunt for other Jim Lee works. The print-style lets these colors pop. Even though it's a paperback, it doesn't feel overly fragile.

So, as a new Batman fan, this book is amazing. Just getting into comics? You'll love it. Been into comics? You'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hush? No I can't keep quiet on this masterpiece! January 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So back in the day my brother worked at a comic shop. He wasn't payed but he got store credit. And believe me, Store credit was more precious than any form of salary to him. He would read comics all day at work then come home and read more. He was extremely fascinated with the dark knight. He would give me the run down on what was going on in each series he was reading. And in a way he would theory craft what would happen next. I would play along with him and to me it was just that... a game. But for him it was his passion.

7 years ago for some reason he decided to take his life. It devastated our family and still continues too. Not a day goes by where I don't think of him or the Times we spent together.

For Christmas this year I received a kindle fire hd. Scrolling through the books I immediately locked In on "hush" . So many memories sparked In my brain and it was a definite buy for me.

The story was amazing. Every page filled with awesome artwork and colors that completely set the tone. From old villains to catwoman looking so seductive, from the twists and turns and brutal past to the beauty of a love story intertwined in such chaos.

Each twist and turn had me smiling just thinking of the time he probably spent trying to dissect the story and predict what was to come. Paying so much attention To the minor details. This story is more than a story for me. It's precious memories and thoughts of my brother being reawakened and relived

And I loved every minute of it!
