    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. The Hush saga continues.

I do like the flash backs of key moments of Batman/Bruce's past. If I had one complaint it would be I would have liked a more decisive fight at the end but I did like how everything was explained at the end.

    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, more 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.

Why is he stirring up so much trouble? And, more 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 hidden. I’m not going to say anything in that regard because I may just spoil it. But, I will say that I wasn’t disappointed. It was some rather clever writing. So let’s talk about the plot. I found the first part of Hush to be, well, quite random. It seemed to me that the writer was just trying to shove in all the famous faces from Batman’s past. It seemed like that when reading the first part, but now it all makes sense. I was wrong. This all fits together very neatly even if it seemed like an explosion at the start. The story has been balanced very cleverly; it provides enough conflict and violence to make the action exciting yet it retains the mystery right till the end. Batman’s investigative skills were really put to the test. It’s a solid bit of comic book storytelling, the monologue is perfect. The artwork was rather good too, very sharp and dynamic. The crossovers with other parts of the DC Universe just made me want to go and read more DC comics. As if I don’t have enough to read, but that’s always a good thing! I’m going to be trying some of The Justice League comics next. I just like seeing Superman and Batman together. They make a good team, but the friendship and mutual respect is what makes them so great together. One thing I didn’t like was the references to Batman: Killing Joke. This story happened after that. I didn’t like that. The ending of Batman: Killing Joke felt like it should stand by itself. Overall, this was really decent. The mystery and the drama took this to the next level; it was much better than the first six issues. More DC comic book reviews from me in the future! Follow me on:|Facebook | Bookmarks

    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?

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 Wayne and Selina Kyle are attacked by Harley Quinn at the opera! Harley Quinn’s attack was not just coincidence as she is then connected to the Joker, who happens to have shot a close friend of Batman’s, who then leads to the Riddler planning a bank robbery and the story goes on until it reaches its shocking conclusion! What I loved about this story: Jeph Loeb’s writing: Oh my goodness! Can I just say that this volume had really put me at the edge of my seat? Yes I can, as Jeph Loeb has once again written a truly amazing mystery story that not only introduced Batman’s greatest foes (Killer Croc, the Riddler, the Joker, Harley Quinn, the Scarecrow, Ra’s al Ghul and Two-Face) all into one story, but managed to get all of the characters wrapped up into one shocking and twisted scheme that was cleverly thought up by a truly evil mastermind! I really enjoyed the way that Jeph Loeb weaved all the characters’ storylines into one story and it was exciting seeing how Batman would solve the case about who is behind his foes’ activities and who caused the death of one of his most beloved friends. I also loved seeing the developing relationship between Catwoman and Batman as Jeph Loeb truly showed Batman struggling with trying to trust Catwoman and how Batman has to learn to start trusting people despite what happened to his parents when he was a child. I especially loved seeing the appearances of Nightwing (Dick Grayson) and Tim Drake (the new Robin) as they were truly fantastic characters and this was basically the first “Batman” comic I had read that featured both Dick Grayson as Nightwing and Tim Drake as the new Robin! I loved Nightwing the best as he has a bright and hilarious personality and is usually there to comfort Batman whenever he was at his most vulnerable. Jim Lee’s artwork: Jim Lee’s artwork once again was just as beautiful as it was in the first volume! I just loved the way that Jim Lee illustrated the lightning sequences in this volume as the lightning looks truly realistic and it really captured the intense mood of the scenes where Batman is fighting during the nighttime. Probably my most favorite images in this volume was of the fight scenes between the Joker and Batman as the panels suddenly go red as we see Batman beating up the Joker brutally and it really shows how intense this scene really was. What made me feel uncomfortable about this story: For anyone who does not like hearing language in comic books, this volume does have a bit of language, even though it is not as strong as something you would read out of a Vertigo comic. Also, there is some violence in this volume, especially with characters getting shot and blood spurting out of the wounds. Final Thoughts: Overall, “Batman: Hush Volume Two” was just as good as the first volume and this storyline definitely deserved to be regarded as one of the best “Batman” stories ever as the mystery and the drama was so well built up! This volume has also gotten me interested in Dick Grayson as Nightwing and I am open to any recommendations about some good titles starring Dick Grayson as Nightwing!

    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.

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 the characters, especially Harley. The accelerating romance between Bruce and Selina is believable, even though I admit to being surprised that things were finally made concrete between them. Jim Lee's art is quite fabulous here. Two small nits to pick: the resolution is so fast, after such a detailed build up, that it feels unsatisfactory. Another issue might have been nice, maybe, to give the climax a little more body. And I enjoy a bit of camp as much as the next person, but I don't think anybody comes out a winner when Krypto the Superdog shows up in a serious Batman comic. Way out of left field, and totally off-tone for the rest of the book.

Basically when you set a level in one book you can only try and beat it in subsequent instalments - if you do not the danger is your reader thinks you have backed out or worse betrayed their attention to detail. The counter side to that is - if you spend it all what else have you got in the bank for the story. Well in the case of this book it seems still pretty more to spend - the story does up the stakes and action I might add. Now I do not often say this but I know that this was made in to an animated cartoon - I would certainly like to see it after reading these books and that is a rare thing for me to say.

    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 more than the rich family. It's not like he can get a job or anything, and he was devolving genetically.

    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.

    *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 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 whole things gets a little melodramatic and barmy but it also functions as a Batman’s greatest hits. I like the portrayal of Huntress and Tim Drake and even The Riddler but Harold’s story is pretty awful and Ras and Talia suffer from not being as exotic as they once were. Still, good stuff.

I'm wasn't quite sure why I didn't like this pairing, and I was still looking for a decent reason when she went at Tim. At this point I jumped out of my very comfortable papasan chair, terrifying my poor dog who was at my feet screaming "OH HELL NO; YOU DID NOT JUST GO AT HIM!" After a few muttered (and in my opinion, very creative) oaths under my breath, I settled back, bristling, to read on. For anyone who was wondering, my dog eventually did come out from hiding under my bed after about 5 minutes. I love Tim & Dick. You might have gotten that. I've been told I can be a tad overprotective. However, I digress. This gave me a valid reason to hate the Catwoman/Batman and I was satisfied. As far as the ending goes, I did NOT see that one coming. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it all, and it was all such a kick in the gut! There was so much death stuffed into these 2 Volumes (as fantastic as they were) and the loss of (view spoiler)[ Tommy (or at least Tommy as Bruce knew him) (hide spoiler)] literally hurt. No wonder there's approximately 5 people he trusts in the world... In case anyone was wondering, I was counting Alfred, Dick, Tim, Clark, and Barbara. I still dispute Selina. It's odd, I've never hated Selina before! Actually, when I was reading Batman: War Games I really, really liked her. And when I finished the first Volume I still had an open mind. However, by the middle of the second Volume something was just not right; they didn't click, it was too easy, too fast, just not...Bruce. Iunno. Maybe I'm weird. But I'm perfectly comfortable with that position!!! ^.^ Ooookay, it's 2:30 AM where I am, so I'm going to get some sleep before I just start babbling (if I haven't been already) and just say: this was great. If you like Batman; READ. THIS.

    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.

I was even right about who the villain was! At least sort of. It was a wonderful read - trying to figure out who the bad guy was while at the same time experiencing some sort of emotional rollercoaster ride (Superman! Catwoman! Nightwing! Robin! Jim Gordon! Alfred!). And with every Batman comic I read I want to read more. It's a good thing there are so many out there *g*

    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.

I found myself wondering how Catwoman, Huntress & Talia could possibly have time to fight/orchestrate criminal activity, given all the time they spent stretching and posing provocatively.

    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.

    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 character...why, 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.

    I freely admit I'm not a Batman lover. And this wacky conclusion to the Hush series reaffirms that. Melodrama and completely ridiculous "BUT WAIT" moments populate the pages. I know this was supposed to be a detective story, but even I figured out the ending well ahead of the WORLD'S GREATEST DETECTIVE. And Batman is an even worse boyfriend than the duds I've dated; just look at his last conversation with Catwoman. Can we say attachment anxiety?

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 & it's not our place to take a life, but I think just this once I think I'd have to look the other way if I were Jim Gordon. Didn't the Joker also take his parents lives in that ally? Or was that just how the movie went? And what made me frustrated is when it says The Joker never got punished because he pleaded "insanity". So that's a justifiable excuse one day if you want to just go on a killing spree? So if Batman isn't allowed to end his life, for all these lives he's taken and injured severely surely they should give this man the electric chair or a life sentence. You would think. It makes me just as mad as Batman to think about how we see this EVERYDAY! People being declared "Innocent" for senseless crimes and not being held accountable in a court of law for the hurt & pain they've caused families. I like the Joker as a character but if this would have been carried out I wouldn't be upset. *(Issue8) Interesting Batman comes clean to Selina. GOOD FOR HIM! I never get why anyway people hide secret identities (or magic and powers) from people they care about. Then it seems to be a running joke about Batman needing to shave. I remember a spoof song I heard on YouTube. The Riddler part confused me. This might just be me but sometimes the artwork in comics isn't very clear. I was following until the part where they're fighting. I get he escaped through a tunnel & Batman captured him. But then it got VERY hazy. And is Is he part of the bigger scheme of covering up who really killed Tommy or was this something he did on his own to get attention? *(Issue 9) This issue I didn't really have much of an opinion on. It's the male vs male fight and the female vs female's fight. Other than I'm surprised Catwoman got her tail kicked so bad. But then up against a League member…. Yeah, I can see that. *(Issue 10) This one just left the question how Jason is back & he's supposed to be dead. It's kind of hard making all these things tie. The Scarecrow infected The Huntress and make her act erratic by bringing out her fears (and I couldn't make sense of her fear in this). I felt like I'd missed something and didn't know if I should be trying to get something out of her rambling. *(Issue 11) Clever how Batman puts 2 and 2 together by spotting the imposter's inaccuracies in his portrayal of depicting Jason. Another character. Another mystery added to the mix in this issue. *(Issue 12) Below RATING: 8 I've had this graphic novel for a LONG time! It was given to me YEARS ago by my best friend. On first read, it didn't catch on with me right away. I think I read up until a little after Killer Croc's kidnap attempt and put it away for a LONG time! YEARS! On second read it went quicker but this comic took me a couple of reads for everything to synch in because it's EXTREMELY layered! And it does a multi-read thing that jumps from Batman's thoughts, to what's happening in present, to flashbacks. It's also character heavy. So with each one introduced your wondering what the end game is in all this and which part they play. So in a sense, it's a graphic novel who done it. As for the plot itself, it starts off slow but if you keep reading it's very fast-paced and full of action from page to page. As for the end. I gotta say Thomas Elliot's whole reason for revenge was LAME! He's upset because he's so selfish he can't wait until his parents die to get his inheritance. And he's mad at Bruce because his father (who I never knew was a surgeon) SAVED his mother's life. The Ridder's game was complex. What it boiled down to was he used all these people to get to the Lazarath pit to place the suspicion on Batman so RA's could take him out because he himself has a brain tumor. Did I get all that? Then I can't decide if in the last exchange between Batman and Catwoman if because she said the word "Hush" if she is indeed guilty of having played him the whole time. Or if he's just paranoid? So it ends with a question after all the other ones are seemingly answered. The Riddler when he was going down the list naming the "participants" didn't include Catwoman's name in the game. But then can't say I blame Batman's suspicion of her after all that LONG DRAWN out 12 issues worth of just ludicracy. This graphic novel was a beautifully, twisted, road that leads into a jumbled sea of insanity. But I enjoyed the journey!

    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.

    "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, Batman even begins to question his own identity and rather or not he can trust anyone. Vol.2 is just as good as the first and really explains everything that didn't get explained in the first. A few more twists and turns take place and the identity of Hush is finally revealed and it's a shocker. Once his identity is revealed the entire plot is then explained in detail and it is really mind blowing and ultimately amazing at how Loeb could write such an unpredictable and at times hard-to-follow story and have it all make sense in the end. This was a great end to a great story and I tip my hat to Loeb for developing such an original story and making me a fan of the new villain known as "Hush".

    This is another book that I really wished I could give a 3.5 to. I did like it, quite a bit, but the more I chew on it, the more 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 herr This is another book that I really wished I could give a 3.5 to.

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 exciting moments, but it all came together as I had suspected. The problem is, I don't know that I'm incredibly perceptive, but that the clues were all spoon fed to me. Comic book dialogue and text is so expository that it's painful at times. The artwork is incredible though. The characters look better than most Batman graphic novels. I liked the thread about Batman and Catwoman up until the very end, and then kind of hated Batman for the choices he made, which I think I'm okay with. I'd recommend this for big fans of Batman, but not for people new to the franchise. It's just too damned overwhelming.

    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 pages trying to find this guy so poor Bruce can have some peace over his tragic loss but nothing is making any sense and he's no closer to finding out who's responsible. Going through some epic fight scenes you think you know exactly who the culprit is everytime a new bad guy shows his mug but nope, still not the guy. It's blindingly obvious who the bad guy is from the start - once you've found out of course! This novel was the ultimate page turner that I simply couldn't - and didn't want to - put down!

    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.
