A fantastic and strong Hush story that demonstrates why hes not just another stringer in the grand scheme of things, he has a weapon no other villain can acquire, history. Combine that with his knowledge, precision and psychosis Hush makes for Bruce Wayne what the Joker is for Batman. Written by the fantastic Paul Dini, he once again out does himself in writing a truly gripping, detailed and disturbing plot using dark gothic and realistic edginess alongside a lighter more classic tone of the golden age Batman.
Some fans may disagree but i find this prequel to Batman RIP a must read, not only does it explore Batmans relationships but it also screams substance when it comes to his humanity. A personal must read and indirectly really sets the tone and the stakes for Batman RIP and Final Crisis.
Contains Detective Comics: #846 - #850
After his acclaimed introduction to the DC universe, and subsequent return in the aptly named, albeit contrastingly negatively received "Hush returns"; this is Thomas Elliot's third outing in the spotlight, having heard of the Black Gloves plans to destroy the bat once and for all, Hush deems himself the only man deserving of the honour, and makes it his mission to beat them to the chase, instead of formulating a predictable plan to just shoot down Bruce Wayne on sight, he strikes at Wayne through those closest to him, the unchanged motive (revenge) shows a lack of imagination, but for a character who's entire purpose is to extract vengeance upon Bruce Wayne; this is forgivable.
It's worth noting that a considerable amount of the content is told in a flashback sense exploring the childhood interactions between Wayne and Elliot. This is told through more rustic, sepia toned artwork that does a great job when it comes to making you feel for Hush as a character.
Dini is a writer who treads a very fine line between producing grittier, and contrastingly more uplifting writing. Having a storyline about a man who cuts his own face off at the halfway point shouldn't work well alongside the abundance of snide humour Dini throws into the mix, but it does.Read more ›
It doesn't have major twists or anything but the story is believable because Hush does what any of us would have done in his place: goes for the heart. While Batman does what any of us would have done in his place: he follows his own...
Hush himself is portrayed much more like the usual overly-dramatic Bat-villain and Selina Kyle is the book’s helpless victim – both of which just do not sit right with me.
The art is much more simplistic than Jim Lee’s work which does not help any comparison either.
As a ‘next-chapter’ for the Hush/Batman conflicts this is just about acceptable and readable enough but it grates by being pretty average after such brilliance.
Thankfully the next Hush piece – ‘Streets of Gotham – Hush Money’ - returns to glory...find this in a library and buy that one.
