    "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 "Hush. Don't make me separate you two" is awesome.

Then there are major ramifications in Bruce's personal life as well. A moment with Catwoman and old friends coming back into his life. I think the part of the story that just cements this for me is Bruce is almost paralysed on deaths door, still communicating his wishes. To me this a story of Batman merging the two aspects himself Bruce and Batman, the people in both their worlds. There is plenty of action and surprises right to the last page.

    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 Batman is pissed off.

The Bat is unprepared and taken of his guard. It made for a great showdown, albeit one-sided. However that wasn’t overly important to the main plot; it was just another extra thrown into this convoluted mess. This just had far too many characters; it was like the writers were just shoving as many DC villains as possible into the story. What they should have done was focus on a couple in real depth. The appearances were quick and over with in just a few pages. There was so much build up, but no pay off. Killer Croc was whisked away, quite literally, as soon as he showed a semblance of personality. This did keep the story moving, which was good, but it lacked emotion. It’s one fast big blur. I’m hoping the second volume of this is much better. Hopefully, it will focus on the characters it concluded with. The Bat has even more reason to be pissed off come the ending, and his singular perusal of this mysterious enemy will hopefully finish with a worthy final confrontation. I did really like the flashbacks. They’re told alongside the actual story, which made the events seem quite important and dramatic. The ending was pretty solid; it makes me want to go and immediately read the second volume. I hope it gets better. Please tell me it does because the cool artwork isn't enough.

Also Selina! <3 Plus the art of Jim Lee is god tier and makes the whole thing such a great read!

    Introduction: 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! What is this story a Introduction: 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! What is this story about? The story starts off with Batman trying to rescue a young heir to the Lamont chemical fortune named Edward Lamont IV from Killer Croc and after Batman rescues the young heir, he discovers that Killer Croc was trying to steal a case of money, which was stolen in the middle of the fight. Batman then realizes that Catwoman stole the money, but is not sure why she stole the money and it is revealed that Poison Ivy might be the ringleader in this entire scheme. Or is she? Also, Batman makes a trip to Metropolis to learn more about Poison Ivy’s whereabouts and guess who he runs into? What I loved about this story: Jeph Loeb’s writing: Wow! Jeph Loeb’s writing for the “Batman” series just continues to amaze me as the stories are fantastic and the characters are extremely well-written! This volume definitely does not disappoint me as the story and the characters were extremely interesting to me. I especially loved the way that Jeph Loeb portrayed Catwoman and Batman’s relationship with each other as their relationship felt a bit awkward, but in a good way as the sexual tension between Batman and Catwoman was interesting and clever at the same time. It was interesting seeing Batman having trouble with sorting out his feelings for Catwoman since we normally do not see Batman react so strongly to a situation he does not understand. I also loved the way that Jeph Loeb builds up the plot surrounding the mystery of the stolen money and how Poison Ivy is tied into this whole situation. I was practically trying to figure out the mystery of this criminal plan throughout the entire volume as it was cleverly woven into the lives all of the characters involved especially Batman, Catwoman and Poison Ivy. The storyline was clearly intense and dramatic and I was practically sitting in the edge of my seat trying to see the true motive of Poison Ivy’s plans and how it would affect Batman. Jim Lee’s artwork: After seeing Jim Lee’s artwork in the “X-Men” comics, I was interested in seeing more of his work! Well, Jim Lee’s artwork in this volume was absolutely brilliant as the characters look truly realistic and the colorings really brought out the surroundings. I loved the dark colorings done on Gotham City as it really sets the dark mood for the story. I also loved the image of Killer Croc himself as he truly looked monstrous and I loved his green scaly skin as looks truly frightening. [image error] What made me feel uncomfortable about this story: The only problem with this volume is that there is some language and violence that might make readers who are not used to violence and language in books uncomfortable. The language is not as strong here as it would be in other comic books and the violence is probably more problematic as there are scenes of characters being punched and having blood spilling from them. Final Thoughts: Overall, “Batman: Hush Volume One” is a truly fantastic series so far and I cannot wait to see how Batman will uncover this huge mystery in the next volume! “Batman” fans will definitely be impressed with series for many years to come!

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

Though Luthor is a villain but I guess..........even a President Luthor for USA is a bit better than what USA is currently having...

    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.

Purist DC fans may be turned off by certain liberties taken by the author as well like an appearance by Superdog. IGN Comics ranked Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 of Batman: Hush #10 on a list of the 25 greatest Batman graphic novels, saying that "there are some truly unforgettable moments" and "Jim Lee's artwork is unbelievable."

    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 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 many years. This kind of thing works better in the Marvel universe, I think, because all of those characters were created in the same few years in the 60's. But the DC universe has been evolving since the late 30's, and the idea of it all being "true" is simply ridiculous. So, yes, Lex Luthor is president of the United States, Lois married Clark and Krypto the flying super dog ends up cornering the villain. OK. Whatever.

    Batman: Shut Up Listen, as much as I think Batman is a fundamentally gay character, I can't deny that I think Batman and Catwoman are a good (well, not good, they're terrible for each other, but it's a good story and very sexy) couple. The art is amazing as usual, and I actually really enjoy this portrayal of Batman, but the main villain is... not very good. Not at all, actually. Vol. 1 is definitely no match for Vol. 2, in my opinion.

    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! Oh this was really good.

    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.

    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 and over again, they may change names, locations but essentially it is the same thing. Well this story at least for me - has broken that wall down - sadly I cannot go in to details since that would spoil the story but suffice to say that if the story is followed up (and here is my failure of knowledge on the subject) the rules have all changed. Now I will also say that the action is fast paced and artwork is to the style I am accustomed to and yes that does sound rather restrictive of me but hey I am still relatively new to all of this. The question is I guess - what will happen next. The first volume is pretty intense and like all multi-part stories they can only go up from there.

    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, Graphic Novel.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Meh. After reading The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, and the Killing Joke, this book was a disappointment for me. It felt a bit over-stuffed with characters--trying too hard to use as many DC Universe characters as they could. Take it or leave it.

    I really like this comic. I always prefer Batman to exist within his own universe, separate from Superman and Co., but this comic PERFECTLY ties in the larger universe without taking away from Batman’s charm as a detective and powerless hero. It features really fantastic appearances from a range of villains, and ties into other stories and plotlines without leaving a less knowledgable reader out of the loop. It is definitely a quintessential Batman story, and I’d recommend it to anyone looking f I really like this comic.

Without spoiling anything, I really liked twist at the end, which is the part I’d be expected to comment on. I think it was perfect, and made this story a very essential [REDACTED] storyline as well. My only criticisms are occasional slowness and odd pacing, and decent but unimpressive art. The art style serves the story well, but I’m always more attracted to unique and tonally fitting art over the basic comic style present in this comic.

    "We make war... that we may live in peace." To be honest, I was initially hesitant going into this one. I'd heard so many good things, and was worried it would let me down a bit. But.... WOW. The hype does not lie when it comes to this story. I devoured it in one sitting, a rare thing for me when comic reading. This book has solidified Jeph Loeb as one of my all-time favourite comic writers. The story is fast paced, throwing you right into the action.

I didn't want to put the book down, because I was desperate to find out what happened next. And that's not even mentioning the stunning art by Jim Lee. This is the first comic I've read with his art, and there's no wonder why he is such a beloved artist. His work feels dynamic, and the pages are all laid out in interesting yet still readable ways. It marries perfectly to Loeb's writing, creating a comic that is truly unique. This comic is definitely up there with the best comics I've ever read. I can't wait to read part two (hopefully soon), as I love what I've read so far!

In my opinion, it was a good book the artwork was really great and also all the action in the book. A lot of good fights between Catwoman and Poison ivy when they were fighting Batman was fighting croc because croc wanted to destroy Gotham City. It keep going on and through the whole book then there was a plot twist where batman had to ask superman for help but he did not know that poison ivy took control of him and she made superman fight batman as batman I read the book Batman Hush comic book.

Then Catwoman did found out what was happening and did everything in here power to stop it then batman took down croc and took out the poison that poison ivy put in superman and all three of them wanted to take her down. Then they switch it around so poison ivy thinks that superman was still under her spell and they tricked her into thinking batman was dead and as they did that they knocked her out and locked her in a cell where she could not escape.

    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.

I like the story - Batman crashing mid flight down into Crime Alley and being badly hurt - and the artwork ist great too (even tough, at the beginning Batman is a bit too brawny for me. I loved the trip to Metropolis and meeting Lois & Clark. I loved to see how Oracle & Alfred care for a hurt Batman and organize a cover for Bruce. And, I loved the mystery of Poison Ivy and Killer Croc working outside their usual patterns.

    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. Hush is an amazing story that showcases all the best of Bruce Wayne and Batman.

    + * = Absolutely love the art + * = The cutest scenes in the whole wretched world + * = Great representation of innocent Bruce Wayne + * = History added to Bruce and Alfred's characters + * = Subtle villain buildup. + * = Great introduction to the new character - 2* = Indecent representation and oversexualization of both genders P.S. Read dates inaccurate. It took me too long. + * = Absolutely love the art + * = The cutest scenes in the whole wretched world + * = Great representation of innocent Bruce Wayne + * = History added to Bruce and Alfred's characters + * = Subtle villain buildup. + * = Great introduction to the new character - 2* = Indecent representation and oversexualization of both genders P.S.
