One of the best Batman stories around. Jim Lee's artwork is gorgeous while Jeph Loeb has a brilliant story to read. Every character in the book fits in and doesn't deviate the plot. It doesn't even fit overcrowded. I bought this as my first graphic novel and it is one of my favorites.

This story caught me off guard. I had heard it was good, but when I read the whole thing I was blow away! Batman has to use all of his wits and strength to overcome his enemies, damn near every one of them! I loved that Loeb included a vast amount of villains and allies to batman and the romance story between Batman and Catwoman is awesome. The artwork is great, the story line is second to none and the mystery of Batman's new enemy who's been stalking him had me on the edge of my seat! Amazing piece of work

Hush is an excellent story with mouth watering art work. Batman Hush is story full of twists and turns with an unexpected mastermind and will keep you guessing the whole time: Who is Hush?

Many people consider this graphic novel to be the greatest Batman story of all time, and it is very good, but I feel like it's slightly overrated. The story is unbeliveable ( in the good way, mind you ) but it's really the dialouge writing that gets me. Somehow, it fails to be overly witty, much like the other stories by Jeph Loeb. Other character's prescence weighs the stiry down, particuarly Nightwing, who I find annoying, and Tim Drake, who I've always disliked ( nothing against Robin, though ). The other issue I have with this story is that Batman seems too brooding, a mistake writers often make. However, the book's high points are much more prominent. The first half of the story is my favorite, involving Killer Croc, a head injury, Huntress and a fight with Superman ( that's a reason to read the story right there ). The art throughout is godly, work only Jim Lee could have accomplished. So, if you want a good Batman story, read " Hush". Just know that it's not that great.

Terrific graphic novel for those of us that don't buy many and for others that buy a lot. Batman versus most of his old foes with help from friends and some surprise allies. Art is exceptional and the story holds your interest. Strongly recommend.

Batman: Hush is another magnificently written graphic novel by the great Jeph Loeb! And with Jim Lee replacing Tim Sale as the artist just makes the book that much better! The book goes after the mystery of Hush and going deep into the relationships of many of Bruce's friends and foes especially Selina Kyle/Catwoman! No matter how big of a Batman fan you are, Hush should be in your collection!

I didn't quite like this as much as the other Batman graphic novels I've read but the only other ones I've read were Long Halloween and Year One so tough competition. Either way a good read can't go wrong with this book

Overall, reasonable. Bit of a "greatest hits" type of novel, the twists and turns were not entirely unexpected....Overall, a reasonable effort, but there are a lot better Batman novels out there

About two years ago I was getting extremely excited for the long awaited sequel to Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, The Dark Knight. Shortly after the DVD release of Begins and the comic collection that accompanied the special edition, I looked at graphic novels in a different light. They were a medium which could supply me with darker and more satisfying Batman tales which would in turn hold me over until my viewing of Dark Knight. What started as an interest, soon turned into the beginning of a passion. I began with Frank Miller's Year One and Jeph Loeb's The Long Halloween & Dark Victory novels but most recently, I acquired the Loeb/Lee collaboration, Hush. Hush changed things dramatically in the Batman universe. It brings together some of Batman's most notorious villains in Joker, Poison Ivy, Killer Croc and Riddler. It also brings an unlikely ally, Catwoman into the fold as well as a cameo by the man of steel himself, Superman. I won't spoil a lot other than that Batman manages to involve himself in a relationship and a major nemesis is turned to the side of justice, abandoning their evil past. Jim Lee's art is spectacular and Jeph Loeb's writing is top notch, as usual. However, Lee's work manages to outshine Loeb's writing as Loeb did not manage to create a story that belongs in the same league as Halloween with Hush. This is not really a terrible thing, it's just hard to recreate perfection. While Hush has a spectacular ending that I did not see coming, it seemed very anticlimactic. In the end, Hush is certainly a memorable piece of Batman history and deserves even the most casual of graphic novel reader's attention. Do yourself a favor and check it out but only if you have read Jeph Loeb's previous work first.

This book captures the newer Batman brilliantly. He's brooding, intense, aggressive, introspective with a warriors heart and detectives mind. However it's lacling in two key elements that make a good Batman story great. Namely Bruce Wayne and Gotham. They are both in here, of course, but are minor characters throughout - little more than backdrop. That's a shame because this is a quality book. It is well written with meaningful dialog that keeps the story moving and the artwork is sharp and colorful with strong detail but Gotham - Batmans true love and obsession - never comes alive and the lack of a good Bruce Wayne narrative sobtracts from the book. This is a good Batman book but not one of the best and everyone involved has served the caped crusader better.

Riveting with every turn off the page. I could only guess while the end was coming, who was behind it all. Great read.
