Batman Hush Complete TP

Batman: Hush - Scott A. Williams, Jeph Loeb, Jim Lee Gorgeous artwork (Jim Lee is pretty unbeatable when he's on his game) but the story doesn't feel as fresh or interesting as the last Batman work by Loeb I read, The Long Hallowe'en. This feels like a polished up retread of the well worn Batman detective stories, which is fine but the story just doesn't hold up for me. Luckily, the character interactions are much more interesting, although no villain is really given enough page time to truly make a deep impact, and I'm a sucker for some sharp Batman/Catwoman dialogue. It's a damn enjoyable piece of work but not an instant classic.
