Hush is an overrated story

#1 Posted by jointron33 (1813 posts) - - Show Bio

Hush is a somewhat enjoyable story, but this is mostly due to the Jim Lee art and seeing him draw every Batman villain. The "mystery" stands out more than a rich white dude in Uganda, and it takes WAAAAAAAYYY to damn long. Why is this held in such high esteem and compared to classics such as The Long Halloween and The Killing Joke?

I loved it. Knightfall is overrated and really boring.

Yeah, garbage story all around like most of Loeb's stuff.

But it's not really that highly regarded. In the interwebs a good amount people hate it.

It was great but Heart of Hush was better. It developed Hush a lot more as a villain and gave him an actual personality.
