A "Faces of Evil"issue starring Hush! Following the events of "Heart of Hush," this two-part story starts here and ends in the pages of this month's BATMAN #685. Catwoman has a score to settle with Hush after their most recent encounter, but Hush isn't likely to take any attacks quietly. Will anyone be able to temper Selina's rage, or will she become a face of evil again?

    Say what you will about Batman RIP (Lord knows, I've voiced my concerns), but this Hush tale is a great way to kick off the aftermath of the Dark Knight's "death". Detective Comics #852 earns Major Spoilers highest rating of 5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    On art, Dustin Nguyen continues to prove he's the perfect match for Dini's brand of storytelling. In an issue mostly void of action, Nguyen manages to provide plenty of interesting visuals to hold your attention, and along with inker Derek Dridolfs and colorist John Kalisz, does a tremendous job of capturing the different atmospheres of each of the issue's exotic locales. The issue speeds along smoothly from the very first page onward, and it all leads to a cliffhanger that left me desperate to read part two. Here's hoping Dini and Nguyen return for another lengthy run on Detective Comics following Battle for the Cowl. Read Full Review

    I dont recommend this being anyones first issue of Detective Comics, however, if you read the Heart of Hush storyline you may want to give this a go as this two issue arc looks to tie up the loose ends left by that storyline. Read Full Review
