I think I like this better than the original Hush storyline. The art isn't as photorealistic, which is fine by me; I like heavier lines anyway. I like the action and I especially like how - even though Selina is a damsel in distress for a good chunk of the story, what with her heart being removed and all - she is the one to deal Hush the coup de grace and seriously impede his future ability to engage in villainy.
What kind of bothers me is how Hush's knowledge of the batcave is basically ignored. Hush himself makes one comment about it - that, now that he knows where it is, he can come back at anytime - but we never see any precautions being taken to prevent this. Selina has made sure Hush is broke - that he doesn't even have two nickels for bus far, to paraphrase her message to him - but that won't prevent Hush from helping himself to the batclan's supplies without changing some security protocols and adding in more barriers than an antique grandfather clock. Maybe this is dealt with a later issue, but it is not referenced or pictured here, so that's a big lose end that he authors left dangling.
Overall, though, I really, really like Heart of Hush. I like the story, I like the characterizations, and I like the art. This is a book that I would highly recommend to others.
