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.

    Review

    Although not as strong as some of his earlier works, Jeph Loeb provides an excellent multiple murder mystery story and the artwork by Jim Lee is absolute superhero realism.

    Love it, love it, love it!!

    Jeph Loeb does such a great job with actual detective stories and that's why he is one of my favorite Batman writers of all-time. Here he throws tons of characters at readers trying to convince them the story is heading in different directions. Some people have complained about constant "red herrings" but I personally love the misdirects. The introduction of Hush is fantastic and seeing Bruce's relationship with Selina, Clark, and Alfred are great. Jim Lee, a bonafide superstar, does superstar work here. He shows just how good he can be and its near perfect. I loved this when I read it in single issues and love it even more now. Truly spectacular work all around.

    This is the Batman at his best! The artwork is amazing, and the story telling is phenomenal! All of Batman's major villians and allies make guest appearances, and there's even a battle with Superman. This Comic showcases Batman's Detective Genius unlike anything on TV or film. This is not a cheesy comic. It's a serious drama and a work of art. I'm SO glad that I purchased and read this remarkable piece of literature.
