Hush Chapter Three: The Beast (In the Mouth of Madness!)
Even Arkham can't hold Killer Croc, or at least that's what Batman and Amanda Waller want him to believe. It seems tracking Gotham's most voracious reptile is the only way to find out who stole the 10 million clams. The problem is keeping Croc contained. The streets burn in this City of Shadows as Catwoman turns up the heat.

    To be completely honest there are moments in these opening issues where I'm surprised by how slowly this story is progressing, but then again since this story is set to run for another nine issues, I can overlook this slow start if it kicks itself into a higher gear soon. This issue does offer up some exciting moments, as Batman uses Killer Croc to lead him to the true villain of this arc, and the flashback material is doing a pretty solid job of inserting a character into Bruce's past. The Suicide Squad fan in me also enjoyed the appearance by Amanda Waller, and it's nice to see her relationship with Batman is as cordial as it ever was. As for the art, Jim Lee turns in some wonderful work on the decidedly animalistic Killer Croc, and the crash of the Batmobile is also quite impressively rendered. That final page shot also makes for a powerful closing visual. Read Full Review
