Batman: Hush - Jeph Loeb & Jim Lee

Batman: Hush (2002)





Story and Words by Jeph Loeb
Pencils by Jim Lee
Inks by Scott Williams
Colors by Alex Sinclair
Letters by Richard Starkings

Hush had a lot of things going for it from Jeph Loeb doing the words to mega-superstar Jim Lee on pencils and his trusty sidekick inker extraordinaire Scott Williams and the amazing colors of Alex Sinclair. With all these elements in place, did Hush live up to the hype?

A resounding yes. The first thing you will obviously take notice of when opening the book is of course Jim's amazing art. The guy just continues to top himself with each and every book he does. And he does not disappoint one bit in this book at all. If you are coming into this book for the first time having never seen anything he has done before, you will definitely come away as a fan.

What about the story? Any good? Another yes. It was very good. It was actually much better than I thought it would be. You're in for a treat if your a fan of DC Comics as pretty much the entire gallery of characters make an appearance at some point here, from Catwoman to Superman to the Joker just to name a few. Hell, you get not one, not two, but three Robins here. You will just have to read the book to find out how it all ties in together.

I absolutely recommend this book for anyone that is a fan of amazing art or in need of a pretty solid story with lots of well-known characters. Also, be on the look out for a new Hardcover Edition of Hush with just Jim's pencils inside. That's right. No Inks and no colors. I can't wait to pick this one up next month (July, 2011).

Top 10 Best Batman Artists

Couldn't agree more with their #1 selection. Jim is without a doubt the gold standard for Batman. I do however have issues with Greg Capullo at the #9 slot. They are way off the mark here. He is top 5 in my book and I'd actually place in at #2. Kind of surprised that David Finch didn't make the list.
