Paul Dini’s “Batman: Streets of Gotham” follows Hush as Bruce Wayne doppelganger

by Matthew Price Published: July 31, 2011

The story of Hush continues in “Streets of Gotham,” as Hush, who has surgically altered himself to look like Bruce Wayne.   Paul Dini is the regular writer, but Christopher Yost and Mike Benson provide some issues.   Dustin Nguyen is the main artist.

Streets of Gotham vol. 1: Hush Money
Dick Grayson has stepped in for the missing Batman in the series “Streets of Gotham.”   “Hush Money” collects “Streets of Gotham” 1-4 as well as “Detective Comics” #852 and “Batman” #685. The new Batman faces off against the Firefly as Hush, who altered his appearance to look like Bruce Wayne in “Heart of Hush,” attempts to put his new visage to work for him.   Known for his work on “Batman: The Animated Series,” Dini has a great feel for Gotham and its many denizens.  Dini also, in “Detective” and “Streets,” creates several intriguing supporting characters.

Streets of Gotham Vol. 2: Leviathan
Chris Yost fills in for Paul Dini in a two-part story, “Leviathan,”which follows Huntress on the trail of Man-Bat, who she believes has lost control.   Also included in the collection is Robin’s team-up with the new hero “Abuse,” and in the story “Hardcore Nights,” Batman goes undercover to find out who is killing the clients of a certain lady of the evening.   This book collects “Streets of Gotham” #5-11.

Streets of Gotham Vol. 3: House of Hush
The long-running Hush subplot featuring his impersonation of Bruce Wayne comes to a close in “House of Hush.”   Hush attempts his revenge on the Batman family, with a plan that ties in with Gotham’s past. This book collects “Streets of Gotham” #12-14 and 16-20.

From the back issues:

Detective Comics 225 (1955) First appearance of Martian Manhunter is what’s made this comic a key book – J’onn J’onzz is often seen as the first Silver Age hero.  In the lead story, billionaire Bruce Wayne donates money to the police fund so that he can fill in as Batman.

SuperFriends 45 (June 1981). The SuperFriends team up with international allies to rescue villains who are being used by an evil mastermind.

Comics read in 2011:  1,107. Still to go: 904.
