Batman: Hush by Jeph Loeb, Jim Lee, Scott Williams, Alex Sinclair and Richard Starking

Batman: HushBatman: Hush by Jeph Loeb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hush was written by Jeph Loeb and tells the story of a mysterious adversary that seems to know a great deal about Batman and is manipulating many of the classic rogues gallery in a bid to seek vengeance. I found the story to be highly engaging and exciting to read. There’s a great deal of action with confrontations with the likes of Killer Croc, The Joker, Ra’s Al Ghul, Catwoman and even Superman. The action is balanced with a healthy dose of mystery as Batman tries to uncover the truth and a romantic relationship with Catwoman that has been hinted at for years.

Jim Lee (penciller), Scott Williams (Inking), Alex Sinclair (Colouring) and Richard Starkings (Lettering) did a great job of creating a comic that is aesthetically pleasing, vibrant and easy to follow. The panels are generally quite large, which is great for the level of action present in the comic.

I highly recommend Hush to Batman fans who enjoy his more action heavy stories and like crisp and clean art style of modern comics. I think it is probably a good idea to read Hush only if you have read some of the older comics, especially “A Death in The Family”, as it does refer to some key events from that story.
