The Hush saga continues After the death in the last issue Batman has finally been pushed too far and make a decision to end one of his long time villains, for all the pain he has caused the bat family.This volume guest stars most of Bat s greatest villains, and every time I thought the mystery was solved it just keeps adding layer after layer I thought ha it was him, no it was not, ah it was them no it was not.Great art work, good story with lots of twist and turns and lots of Batman history I d [...]
The lingering questions really drove this forward Who is this mysterious man from batman s past Why is he stirring up so much trouble And, importantly, how has he manged to manipulate some of Batman s most iconic opponents The answers really had to be worthy of the questions, and I can safely say that by the end they were This had the resolution it needed I m not giving anything away I m not going to attempt to be cryptic or discuss whether or not the identity of the villain was obvious or hidd [...]
5.5 stars Introduction After reading the first volume of the well acclaimed Batman story, Batman Hush, I just had to check out the second volume that would conclude this fantastic storyline Now, that I had just finished reading Batman Hush Volume Two, I can clearly say that this storyline definitely rates along my most favorite Batman storylines next to Batman The Killing Joke and Batman The Long Halloween What is this story about Continuing from the last volume, the story begins when Bruce Wayn [...]
This review is for volumes one and two of Hush I read this not long after it first came out, and liked it well enough, but I think I liked it even better with this read Hush is a sprawling, villain packed mystery that introduced one of the best Batman villains of recent years, Hush The mystery is compelling, but so much attention is paid to all the various villains of the month distract from what should be the driving force But I can t complain too much, because I like how Loeb handled all of th [...]
This was okay It was entertaining Throwing all of batman s enemies into a conspiracy against him is not novel, but this is pulled together well enough The dialogue between batman and the super villains was good The end seemed a bit of a stretch Oh and does anyone else ever identify with the supervillains I mean the killer croc probably needed that money than the rich family It s not like he can get a job or anything, and he was devolving genetically If someone couldn t get their genetic disease [...]
Hoooooo boy, reading that was EXHAUSTING is the best ever way possible God, I love comics And everything and anything to do with Batman in general And let me just add this in before I get too far that I was SO SO SO happy to see Dick and Tim again I cried a little bit I love those kids OKAY, now straight into the thick of it view spoiler So the Catwoman thing didn t work out Obviously hide spoiler Am I pleased Hell yeah I m wasn t quite sure why I didn t like this pairing, and I was still lookin [...]
A great conclusion to a terrific story The mystery is intense and it has me guessing all the way through The writing is top notch, the artwork is equally so, and the action sequences were very enjoyable The huge cast of characters is a like an Easter egg for everyone who has followed the comics for so long The mention of plots and previous storylines is definitely intended to treat the hardcore fans This is a fantastic Batman story and one that fans of the character will love.
This was supercool I absolutely loved it, and while I managed to restrict myself to small portions in the beginning, in the end I gave up and devoured the books in one go.First of all, the artwork is so fucking pretty It was one of those cases where sometimes I d turn a page and be breathless for a moment, because wow So gorgeous So even if the story was, I dunno, boring or not to my liking, I would have had a great time just because of the whole look of it.But the story wasn t boring, and it wa [...]
Look, I appreciate what they re trying to do, but I have comics both pre and post Crisis from decades ago in which Batman and Catwoman are already an item This is what happens when authors don t know anything about the history of the characters they re writing Batman doesn t feel like Batman, though I liked the reflections on his relationships with Nightwing Robin I, Jason Todd Robin II, and Tim Drake Robin III What is , I suspect that this story inspired the craptacular resurrection of Jason To [...]
4.5 stars This was great Even better than the first one, and so close to getting a full five stars So many Batman characters in this volume, I loved seeing them all This was definitely an awesome story arc, and I can see why it has all the praise it does I highly recommend this to any Batman fan if you haven t read it already Also I did get my batboys featured, so my request from the last volume was fulfilled
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 of a somewhat lame attempt at a big shake up in the batverse thriller than a solid or intriguing detective story.
I had to pick this up as soon as I could after finishing volume one This volume was just as good I loved the relationships between characters, I loved the fake reveals that kept you guessing, I loved the final reveal, I loved the art Overall I loved this whole story and I know I ll be coming back at some point in the future to re read both volumes.
The fantastic conclusion to Part 1 Jeph Loeb and co outdo themselves here, creating a full out mystery for Batman Bruce to solve All his foes are involved, and many are acting out of characterwhy, and who s behind it Also, Catwoman Selina and Bruce get closer Red Herrings, false finales, and a great conclusion make for a superb book Just like the 1st part, ESSENTIAL Bravo.
Batman Hush, Vol.2 picks up right where Vol.1 left off Still confused as to who Hush really is, Batman finally gets a chance to find out his identity Right before he does so, Harvey Dent shoots the man that had the answer This adds a whole different element to the story Now, not only are all of Batman s enemies involved The Joker, Killer Croc, Clayface, The Riddler, etc but even his allies like Harvey Dent are suddenly thrown into the mix of this already confusing and twisted plot At one point, [...]
This is another book that I really wished I could give a 3.5 to I did like it, quite a bit, but the I chew on it, the I find little flaws here and there Ultimately, I ended up thinking that the cavalcade of stars worked fine, though I do feel like I was drowning in them by the end, and had a little trouble remembering who was doing what I could see the ending from way back on page 2 of the first volume, and had hope that I was wrong at many points in the book with different red herrings and ex [...]
Fin de Hush, la historia sigui siendo misterio en capas, cada problema resuelto destap otro hasta llegar a un final contundente y bien cerrado Enloquecer a Batman y obligarlo a usar todas sus ma as detectivescas, me hizo recordar mucho al primer arco del Daredevil de Kevin Smith Dos cosas me molestaron, el dibujo de Lee a pesar que tenga su legi n de fan ticos a m no me termina de convencer y lo otro es que le das tantas historias de Batman aburre que sigan siempre rememorando el pasado de l y c [...]
Reading this is such a trip because the continuity of Hush volume 1 and 2 is so different from Batman s current run Honestly, I really miss it Some of it is weird Luthor is president but some if it is very rich Todd is dead and there s no Damian In the end I find Hush himself to be pretty disappointing His ability to manipulate and his his plan is very impressive but his motivations are severely lacking Now, having said that, I still enjoyed the story very well Here are ten things I liked 1 The [...]
Just like any other batman stories or movies this one was great One book I would read twice.
It was excellent A thrilling and suspenseful story and great art
Look at me Seth i m reading the good shit
Remind me not to have him speak in my funeral Selina Kyle on Bruce WayneDespite the fact that the fight scenes aren t so well drawn at least it is to me , the story is okay, the romance between Catwoman and Batman is doing great, and many dead characters view spoiler e.g Jason Todd, etc hide spoiler are coming back to life hahaha Joker, Harley Quinn, Scarecrow and the Mad Hatter also shows up, what can I ask for PS there is something about Batman being his brooding miserable self and Nightwing [...]
Goes without saying Incredible.
Hush Volume 2PLOT Batman sets out to discover who s behind the death of his friend Tommy Elliot THOUGHTS Issue 7 This is a GREAT issue It shows Batman almost at his breaking point a neck snap away from ending the Joker s sorry life And truthfully can we really blame him if he had So there s supposed to be this line Batman s tip toeing on according to the Joker which puts him an action away from being like him and others like BUT YES, I do recognize it s bad to stoop to the level of evil killing [...]
Jeph Loeb essentially wrote the same Batman story three times in a row, but a little worse each time I had read this years ago and remembered it as being so good, but it s mediocre at best.
The theme of these three graphic novels is that the art is better than the story The story of Hush itself is quite engaging But it s Jim Lee s illustrations that are the highlight of the story The art and coloring are lush, complex and beautiful The narration got to be a bit much at times, as if Loeb wanted Bruce to reflect upon every single aspect of his personality A lot of the narration was well done though and I d much prefer it to no characterization Seeing so many characters make cameos wa [...]
This was by far the most intense comic I ve ever read from start to finish Following straight on from Hush Part 1, we follow through those last couple of frames from the last graphic novel into this one, where Batman is beating Joker whilst Joker tried to claim his innocence right off the bat things don t slow down.Running in a circle, Batman is trying to find out who it is that killed his best childhood friend, Tommy, and he s not being led in the right direction You re thrown all around the pa [...]
I read the first volume a while back, and eventually I was able to get a hold of the second It s a fast read, naturally, seeing as it s illustrations than words, but there is a lot to each of the illustrations and it s easy to miss some of the finer details if you re not paying attention Honestly, I enjoyed the first volume , but the art is incomparable The story felt a bit rushed at times in this volume, but that could be either because I read it so quickly or because there is so much going on [...]
I ve read Hush a few times now, and I think it warranted an extra look to fully understand what happened The art throughout is fantastic, and while Jeph Loeb s story may be slightly patchy in its pacing, the end comes all in one rush over only a few pages where the plot is explained in detail It does all make sense, but the inclusion of eg The Joker, Scarecrow and Jason Todd seemed a bit bolted on rather than an intrinsic part of the plot, just so that no famous characters got missed out The ope [...]
