Hush - Jeph Loeb

The Batman is trying to solve the murder of his childhood friend and has to deal with a plethora of classic villains in order to do so. This story didn't thrill me; it seemed too focused on trying to get as many characters onto the pages as possible, while updating (I thought poorly) it's readers on the world of the caped crusader. I was glad to have Loeb give renewed vigor to an old favorite--and always underutilized--villain.
