    Default Hush follow-ups - worth reading?

    Hey, I finally read Hush the other day and I thought it was pretty decent (I like the Bruce and Selina relationship.) I was wondering if anyone thinks the follow-ups, Heart of Hush and House of Hush are worth reading? Thanks

    Heart of Hush definitely.
    House of Hush, not so much.

    I would recommend them both. House of Hush suffered during its original serialization in Streets of Gotham because it often skipped issues, or appeared only in very brief segments. However, it was a solid story IMO and should read fine in the collected edition.

    The only Hush collection which should be avoided at all costs is the dreadful Hush Returns.

    Yeah, Hush Returns was a MAJOR letdown, it should've been a LOT better. Heart of Hush was great, and Hush Money was not only a worthy follow up to that story, but a necessary read as well. It's a great set up for House of, and yes, by all means get the trades. The three make a very nice trilogy :)

    Yep. Dini's Hush is actually a great villain.

    I want scott snyder to bring hush back into the spotlight after his riddler story.

    The sheer spectacle of the original hush story and dini's expanding on the character make him someone I want to see stick around.

    Loeb's was too, but that's just my opinion. :)

    I loved the art in it. Al Barrionuevo draws a great crouching Batman and menacing Hush.

    I said it multiple times, I would love if Snyder took Hush under his wing and let him flourish in new52.

    It became a bit like those old Universal Horror films with all the Hush sequels. For a shoehorned, Sentry style, continuity implant, he was actually a decent character.

    Heart of Hush is great. One of my favorite Alfred moments, and one of my favorite Bruce/Selina moments, are from Heart of Hush.

    I think I can guess the Bruce/Selina moment: what was the Alfred moment?

    Heart of and House of are both pretty great, and kind of surprisingly considering when they occurred, both star Bruce!

    Retrospectively they're both kind of perfect sequels to "Hush" because they feature Catwoman heavily (like Hush) and also feature Hush utilizing classic members of the Rogues Gallery in unique ways. It's cool to think of how that worked out, and how they really do play out as proper "sequels" to the original Hush. Plus, Dustin Nguyen artwork up the wazoo! Actually Hush Money can totally be looked at in this context, too.

    I'd also recommend Batman: Gates of Gotham. The whole Hush/Penguin similarities were so great.
