Can’t wait

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh! says “Hush!” in a hushed tone

For #608:

-Seeing Killer Croc in full as he fights Batman. Beauty, thy name is that splash page.

-I love the lead-up reveal of Batman. Catwoman looks beautiful too.


@Vroom one of my favorite moments from 608 is seeing Catwoman in the background in a panel before her reveal. I almost missed seeing her in the background.


@MMD The panel of #608 with Catwoman in the background is the one where Batman is talking to GCPD, right?

Sorry for being MIA everyone. My little boy came late last night after a full day of labor. He’s very cute but also very needy.



Congratulations, @MattMcDonald! :tada:
I’m so happy for you guys!

This story really lives up to the hype!

This is the first time I’ve read a comic where the art is so stunning that it almost outshines the story. I love this panel of Helena and I love that she was the one who fought off the attackers. Go Helena!

The flashback art is amazing - I love the style change for the art. This is my first time reading Hush, I feel like the flashbacks are leading up to something big.

Also, the storytelling from Alfred’s perspective is just wonderful. I loved every moment of every panel.


'Nuff said.

@JL the flashbacks do indeed lead to something. I won’t say what, but you’re on the right path.

I love Huntress’ entrance in Batman #609.

I also like Jim Lee’s design of Huntress, it’s easily my favorite of her uniforms. You know something is good when it eventually makes its way into the DCAU a few times over.

Hello everyone. I must say this is going to be a really fun book club reading! I love the storyline, I collected it as it ran, and I even have the Absolute edition. I enjoy seeing the foreshadowing as the issues play out. In reading it digitally for the first time, I’m starting to see things I haven’t seen before. For instance in issue 608 it looks like Jim Lee might have “assembled” some Easter eggs.


Also, I couldn’t help to notice in issue 609 that there appears to be a “friendly neighborhood” photographer.


@Batmite267 Hush is riddled with easter eggs aplenty. Keen observances :slight_smile:
