Both volumes are beautifully illustrated and feature some of the most iconic characters in DC history. Catwoman and Poison Ivy are eye-poppingly rendered and would’ve have appealed to my teenage sensibilities had the comic come out way back then. In the first volume, the Huntress makes a fleeting appearance to help Batman out of a tricky situation and Killer Croc has mutated into something even more terrible – so grotesque it’s hard to make out his features at times.
It's not until vulme 2 that the identitiy of the shadowy bad guy who is orchestrating events is revealed. However, I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to figure out who it is, despite a shed load of red herrings – most notably in the form of Twoface and then Clayface impersonating the ‘middle’ Robin (the one DC/The Joker killed off).
It's only really the villain’s motivation that remains a mystery until the tale is done. That said Hush is a great story covering a great ensemble of all your favourite Batman villains and featuring some stunning artwork. For Batman comic fans it's as essential reading as 'Killing Joke' or 'Dark Knight Returns'.
The story is outstanding, well paced Detective novel. Jim Lee's art work in both volume 1 and 2 is superb. If you are a Batman fan or a Jim Lee fan this is a must.
Introduces a few new characters and shapes the Batman world a little.
Production is good, image reproduction was sharp and its well bound.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a graphic novel!
