While not as good as Batman: R.I.P., this new storyline that is connected to R.I.P. called Heart of Hush is still very good. This book reminds readers what is so good about Dr. Thomas Elliot. He is ruthless, smart, and dramatic. He is one of the best of the newer batch of Batman villains in the past ten years. Here we are reminded of his past and why he hates the Wayne family so much. Also we get to see Batman and Catwoman go up against a new Batman foe that will leave you searching for a moral to these tails.
The writing is as almost always superb with Dini at the helm and while it always takes me a second to get into Nguyen's art...I always like it by the time I finish the story. So overall this is a very well done tie to an even better book. I hope that doesn't upset Dini...sorry. :-)
