I personally rank this one up there with Miller's DKR in terms of must-readability. It's one of my favorites. The sequel, Dark Victory, is pretty cool too.

Itīs good, but read a second and third time many flaws of the plot become more and more appearant and in that end itīs a whole lot reminiscent of TDK.

I love the artwork, except for the Joker's face. It just seems so stupid, why would he make his mouth look like that?

I only wish Dark Knight had stolen even more from this. The part where they claimed Dent's old nickname was Two-Face seemed like a stupid move to me when they could have easily said many other things that would have made more sense as a nickname. (I thought for sure he was gonna say Big Bad Harv)

Yea, I bought this a week or so ago. It's a pretty good read and the arts great.

And I sorta like how Tim Sale draws the Joker. It's dumb, but still pretty cool.

And Two-Face is always awesome...

I strongly disagree with the hype surrounding this book. Without Tim Sale's magnificent art, I think more people would see right through the empty smoke and mirrors of Loeb's cliched, plot-hole ridden plot, logic-defying plot twists, completely nonsensical ending (the ending is "unsolvable" because it MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE), and one-note characterizations. All of the characters have been reduced to their most simplistic caricatures.

The entire Two-Face origin subplot is "borrowed" from BATMAN ANNUAL # 14, a story called "Eye of the Beholder," which gave Harvey fifteen times more power and tragedy in 50 pages than TLH did in thirteen issues.

This one and Arkham Asylum Serious House on Serious Earth are probably my favorite bat-books. God knows they're better than the craptastic Batman and Son or it's sequel whatever the hell it's called.

Say what you will about Loeb, but I personally think he's one of the best "Batman" writers besides Frank Miller. I absolutely love "Hush" as well as his other Batman comics.
