SummaryAdd a Summary
Heart of Hush is the fourth collected volume in the Hush chronicles. It opens on the dealings of a crime ring headed by Doctor Aesop. Aesop has a penchant for using animals and as the Bat/Cat team breaks in on it, our old friend Hush makes a dramatic return. In this round Hush purchases a hospital and staffs it with mind numbed derelicts. This run is a return to form with more revealing flashbacks to Bruce and Tommy's childhood that lend rhyme and reason as to why Hush's obsession persists, the jade necklace from before is featured as well. Robin and Nightwing make an appearance to help Batman break up another literary inspired criminal cadre. The magical Zatanna joins the story and provides a thread that weaves Catwoman into the story in a way that gives her character center stage at times. Continuing Hush's tradition of bringing out Batman's rouges gallery, we get Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze and the Joker (of course) nailed to key plot points and bringing their particular brand of menace to bear. Scarecrow's meddling recalls the stark terror of Killer Croc's attacks as well as the innocence of a child kidnapping that puts Batman on his ear again.Toward the end we are made privy to the logic behind the title and welcome Dr.Midnite and Mr.Terrific to the hero team. As the plot wraps up, Hush unwraps in the most revealing secret brought to light thus far. Alfred shows his stuff and the Batcave sets the scene for the closing act.
