Jul 02, 2017 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
"Hush. Don't make me separate you two" is awesome. Great art work (it is Jim Lee come on) great story, and plenty of guest stars.

Right from the first page, my first thought is this is the way Batman is supposed to be. He does not have any superpowers so he has to rely on technology, tactics and in some cases his family/friends.

This comic has many elements from the Knightfall storyline. However where Bane was a imposing monster of muscle, the mistry of Hush is he seem to be a step ahead of Batma

Batman is pissed off.


Not only are his usual enemies plaguing Gotham, but they’ve somehow united behind a mysterious figure. The Dark Knight is looking for clues, which means he ends up bumping into a few nasty faces from the past. He can handle them, he has done in the past, but what he wasn’t counting on was them manipulating Superman into fighting him.


This is no Batman v Superman. The Bat is unprepared and taken of his guard. It made for a great showdown, albeit one-sided. However that wasn

I have been reading many “Batman” comics for awhile now and after searching for some really good “Batman” stories that were recommended to me by other fellow comic book readers, I keep hearing good things about “Batman: Hush” and I finally picked it up! “Batman: Hush Volume One” is apart of an alternative universe in DC Comics called “Elsewhere,” like where “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns” also came from and I have to admit, I really enjoyed this volume!

When I first finished reading Hush vol. 1 I was entirely going ga-ga over the hot Batman and Catwoman's making out scenes!

But now after I calm down a little, I can see although Batman's action scenes and his nightly adventures are as effectively written as usual, the villains as awesome as always and the artwork is purely superb, still the storyline and the main villain Hush do leave me a bit underwhelmed. I know, Hush does a lot better in vol. 2, still in vol. 1 he is better in the story. the

So Wikipedia tells me that most of the Batman comics I like are what DC calls "Elsewhere" comics, meaning they take place outside of the regular continuity of the DC universe, thus allowing for greater freedom in story telling. But this book is part of the regular DC continuity and it turns out that this is the real Bizarro World, because like a fundamentalist reading the Bible, every word in the text has to be taken as fact, despite having been written by many different men, over the course of ...more

In this tale Batman suffers a grievous injury that takes him out of Gotham and into Superman's territory where he touches base with an old childhood friend and deals with several major villains of his past. I like how Wayne's character was established. That isn't something done very well in a lot of the other Batman graphic novels. There's an obvious shades of gray as to how matters are resolved a la The Batman Way or The Superman Way. Hardcore critics will take issue with how Batman was injured ...more

Oh this was really good. I love Batman and I've heard that the Hush arc is a classic that I have to read, and so far I'm really enjoying it. So far my one complaint (?), more of just a request really, is where are my Robin's ?? Dick, Jason, or Tim, anyone really, I'm surprised Nightwing hasn't come in yet, Huntress even made an appearance. Anyway, onto volume two, which I'm really excited about because I believe there's an appearance by one of my fave ladies, miss Harley Quinn! ...more
I'm not really sure why this story arc was so popular - I think it was mostly due to Jim Lee being the artist. It's an okay Batman story and does further the larger arcs in his life a bit, but it's not exactly worth the hype in my opinion. The major plot points turn on several unrealistic "surprise!" gimmicks; in that respect it's more of a somewhat lame attempt at a big shake-up in the batverse thriller than a solid or intriguing detective story. ...more

From time to time I fancy changing things and I will admit that I have stalled a bit with the Stranger Things book - so time for a shift and as luck would have it I was able to get a copy of both parts of Batman Hush.

Now I will not go in to all the accolades and praise that has been heaped on this story - least to say that it has helped me get over some of my reservations with long running and multi-story comic books.

You see I often feel that with some comic books the same story is re-told over

A very good Batman read. The story is solid and there’s plenty of guest appearances from famous Batman characters, villains, and DC superheroes. The artwork is terrific and the writing is nicely done also. The book is filled with plenty of intense action sequences that are a treat to read. The tone is gritty, with a no fucking around type of Batman and I really liked it.

Graphic Novel. This is exactly the kind of Batman story I like, Batman surrounded by his friends and enemies, chasing after Catwoman, being teased by Nightwing, secretly conspiring with Robin, hanging out with Superman, bizarrely annoying Lex Luthor. The big reveal of the so-called criminal mastermind was from roving, roving left field while at the same time totally flat, but that's okay, I had fun watching Batman get frazzled and scruffy, and the artwork was fantastic, the dark muscular Gotham, ...more

I've wanted to read this story for the longest time and I was nervous I'd be disappointed. I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! This is how you write Batman. It's fast paced, it's exciting and the bad guys and cameos keep coming and are done so well. The artwork, I love the artwork it is just so beautiful. Jim Lee can just draw! I love the story an the ending...the ending! I feel like I'm just gushing but that's just how much I enjoyed this book. ...more

I can't believe I haven't gushed about this . This is one of finest graphic novels I've ever read. The one which ignited my interest in them in the first place. It's also very close to my heart because all my siblings have read and loved it, thus making it special still.

Now this is what Batty vs Superman should have been about. See, Warner Bro/DC guys you have so much good source material why not use it ? Also please do not feed Synder. He messed it up twice!

I don’t think I had ever read this story all in one go before and I don’t remember how it was received when it was published. Did people really not know who Hush was. There seem to be so many obvious pointers even as the narrative keeps throwing out red herrings. And yet... the art is just gorgeous. I have been a Jim Lee fan since Uncanny #248 and his work here is so glorious. Loeb’s Bruce is a bit of an ogre and I never really bought his romance and revelation with Selena, but I like the whole ...more

The artwork elevates an otherwise simplistic story. It's like a free-for-all DC Royal Rumble with contrived surprises in the form of DC character appearances, both heroes and villains. It doesn't take advantage of the great build up and it just becomes one messy confrontation without real logical reason. But I do like the way they make Batman here so vulnerable, with real emotions and all.

Despite the shortcomings, Batman: Hush Vol. 1 is still an entertaining Batman read.

Wow. Fantastic work by Jeph Loeb here. It makes use of nearly every major character, and when a writer can do that and it makes sense without seeming gimmicky, it's rare. Loeb did that in 'Dark Victory' as well. Batman needs to find out who this new force is, or if it's one of the old gang up to new tricks, and he has help in somewhat unexpected places. Essential reading. ...more

My work's graphic novel book club picked this for the next meeting. I've been unable to attend for the past few months due to scheduling conflicts, but I challenged myself to actually read every single volume in 2019.

Turns out a superhero comic might NOT have been the best way to start. I'm not a huge Batman fan to begin with, and then with all of the female characters drawn like porn stars (with the somewhat racial exception of one), I'm even less of a supporter. Is it because I keep reading i

It took a second read for me to get what all the fuss is about with this storyline. Jim Lee & Scott Williams' artwork. It is fantastic! Jeff Loeb's story is fairly nominal Batman fare. It isn't as good as his classic Long Halloween storyline, in my opinion. But Hush was entertaining.

Book 1 features Batman's foes Killer Croc, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, plus (view spoiler)

Once again I tried to pick up a Batman graphic novel. This time I managed to finish it (BOTH PARTS!). I think Batman comics might just not be my thing. While I though this was good for the most part it didn't exactly tempt me to delve into the lore of Batman any further. I think I will stick to the movies and the games for now. For me, at least, becoming "The Batman" has been far more interesting than the graphic novels - although I am fully aware that I am one of the few who hold this opinion. ...more

Hush is an amazing story that showcases all the best of Bruce Wayne and Batman. A new villain is wrecking havoc on Batman's life because he is having them work in unique ways that the Bat ins't used to. In the midst of this. Selina Kyle has become a huger part of Bruce's life. Lots of action and deep emotional exploration. A classic story with stellar talent. ...more

"From Hell" raised my interest in graphic novels, "Batman: Hush, Vol.1" made me a fan of them. I've always been a Batman fan, so it wasn't hard for me to enjoy this. It was really cool to see all of Batman's enemies come together in one ginormous plot to attempt to take him down. With all the enemies coming together it made the story very unpredictable and kept me guessing about who "Hush" really was. This novel really showed the struggles that Bruce Wayne goes through on an everyday basis and h ...more

Loved the art in here, and the story was solidly entertaining. More Catwoman, who is always a blast for me--I enjoy her moral ambiguity and almost impish personality.

This touches on the reasons why I find Batman such an appealing character...and Superman not. Batman's got some real depth to him, and is willing to get down and dirty to do what's right in the end, plus seeing him take on a super-powered alien with effectively toys and gadgets is pretty damned awesome. Plus, this brings in some vul

Every generation, we have a iconic Batman artist: Bob Kane ('39), Neal Adams ('68), Marshall Rogers ('77), Frank Miller ('86), Bruce Timm ('92), and now Jim Lee ('03). This is a nice "reintroduction" to the Batman we need. Jim helped relaunch a somewhat dopey X-men franchise for Marvel in '91 into something more respectable, and does the same for DC here.

(Why Batman artists feel the need to constantly tie Superman into their stories baffles me, but at least this one keeps it to a minimum.)

Hush, Vol. 1 is a solid outing by Jeph Loeb, and does a decent job of mixing the gritty realism often found in good Batman stories with the whimsical, polished fancy of many DC comics. The story isn't as focused on Batman's persona as is befitting the best stories about the caped crusader (really, did Superman have to make an appearance?), and it's very, very obvious from the very beginning who Hush is, but this is an enjoyable read. ...more

Recommended to Eric by: Joe Carl
Batman: Hush was simply phenomenal. The story is deep and satisfying and the artwork jumps off the page.

It features the usual cast of Batman villains -- Killer Croc, Poison Ivy, The Joker and Harley Quinn, Two-Face, Raz Ah Guhl, The Riddler, and Clayface -- and introduces a new villain, Hush. It also delves into an edgy romance between Batman and Catwoman.

Hush made it very clear to me that Jeph Loeb is my favorite Batman author. This graphic novel is a must read for any Batman fan.
