    I was a little uncertain if Dini was going to be able to pull off a multi-issue arc of the length that his one has been. He's really good at the done in one, but here he proves he can tell a large story that is well worth sticking around to the end for. With brilliant art by Nguyen, themes and characters that can't or won't die, Detective Comics #850 earns the highest praise we can give - 5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    In the end, "Heart of Hush" turned into a strong and very fun Batman story. Thankfully, it also turned out to have very little to do with RIP. Read Full Review

    Detective Comics #850 was a pleasant ending to a well crafted story arc. Dini used this opportunity to evolve Hush's character as well as to flesh out the history of Gotham's high society a bit more. This finale delivered enough action and drama that it should have broad appeal to a large cross section of comic book readers. If you missed out on the Hush story arc then I would certainly recommend checking this story arc out when it is released in trade paperback format. Read Full Review

    While Paul Dini did wonders for several DC Comics animated series, this RIP chapter of Batman should do exactly that. Read Full Review

    This story is not only awful, but it had nothing to do with the RIP storyline. For a milestone issue, it fails in just about every department. Thank god it's over. One of the worst reads of the year. Read Full Review
