A worthwhile read, but not the best ever.

I liked "Hush", but I think there are several Batman books that are much better. "Long Halloween", also written by Loeb, is much better in my opinion. Also, "Batman Year One", "Killing Joke", "Court of the Owls, I think are superior to "Hush". Jim Lee's artwork was great. I loved the page with all the Batmobiles of the past (including the TV Show Batmobile and the Tim Burton Batmobile). The story is good, but it just didn't seem authentic. Another review said it seemed like an excuse to have Jim Lee draw all the Batman villians, and I agree. It just seemed simplistic compared to the detective aspects of the great Batman stories.
