Oh, Hush. I must say I am enjoying seeing him as a defanged gadfly like this, though it does put me in mind of that line from a recent BoP about Penguin, about how because he looks so ridiculous they forgot how truly evil he could be.

Adore the art. Lookit the expression on wee!Tommy's face in the coin-behind-the-ear panel!

J'onn and M'gann are good for short runs, but they need an ongoing thing until the real Bruce comes back.

Homunculi tend to end badly.

This is really strange out of context. Hush is not trying to destroy Selina and get his money back, and Zee is putting up with his presence, much less going on a "date" with him. So weak!

She just can't catch a win can she? That magic mickie in her drink in her book and here, only a week later, on a bad date with Hush.

She needs to get Oracle to set her up a SuperMatch.com account.

Or when Bruce comes back she's going to go, "Mister, you are going to give me a proper date or I swear to GOD I'll magic your ass right back to those Cavepeople to start all over again!"

Eh. Both cultures have their feuds and bigotry. I can't say that anti-Gypsy sentiment and France's deportation is any worse than say, Arizona's deal with Hispanics.

All this stuff looks ridiculous from the outside.

You want to read some ice-cold abuse of this kind of thing, read about the history of Sri Lanka. British Governors import Tamils to work in plantations, displacing native workers, and touching off massive tension and violence between the two populations now put in economic conflict, while the British observers basically laugh at them for imagining there's any significant difference between the two groups.

And now, a hundred years later, the British are out with all the money, and the Sri Lankan Civil War ended only last year, with the Tamil/Sinhalese conflict just moved underground.

Thank you for having such an interest in my country's situation. You're one of the few who do not actually think that the Singhalese are a bunch of xenophobic despots with a genocidal government.

I have to correct your information though. the Tamils native to Sri Lanka and the later Indian immigrants are two very distinct demographics. The latter is genuinely neglected and even today live in appallingly poor conditions. The conflict arose between the Sri Lankan Tamils and the dominant majority the Sinhalese Buddhists. After the British took over, they employed a system of "divide and conquer". They deliberately favoured Tamils in both education and career prospects and gave them administrative positions over large Sinhalese communities. This provoked enough jealousy, suspicion and dissension that it prevented the Sinhalese and Tamil nationalists from ever properly unifying against the British government. The dissensions grew even more after the Independence in 1948, which coupled with the discriminating language policies of That Turd Prime Minister S. W. R. D Bandaranaike, eventually culminated in the race riots of 1983, which sparked a blood bath that stretched on for 25 years.

Strangely, though very few people think to be mad at the British for any of this, including me. People are, as rule, petty grudge-holding blinkered fools. What purpose would it serve, anyway?

It's funny however much I think Dustin Nyguen is one of the best Bat-artists out there I've never been convinced on how he draws "Bruce Wayne" (either as Bruce or Hush). He looks so generic.

I hate this story as well. I liked Heart of Hush but this whole Hush as Bruce story seems so contrived just so they (DC) doesn't have to explain Bruce stepping back into his life without legal hassles (obviously since this story is not slated to finish until after Bruce returns the real Mr. Wayne will have to handle HushBruce himself). The idea that Bruce's family and closest allies will assist having this sociopathic mass murderer (including killing both his parents - another insult to Bruce who whose existence is because his parents were murdered) pose as Bruce and give away Bruce's money indefinitely (and his supposed minders do NOT follow him 24/7 as we've seen HushBruce solo in Arkham Reborn and Red Robin) and it WAS indefinite since they all thought Bruce was deader than a doornail is pretty tacky. Zatanna with one spell could return Hush's old face to him and end this farce within seconds (especially taking part in this after she pleaded Bruce's forgiveness several times for the mind-wipe) but no they carry on, even though they know this creap is diabolical, would murder one of them without a second's thought and is determined to ruin Bruce Wayne's name. So what do they do - give him the chance to do exactly that!

I always thought Dustin drew the best Bruce Wayne around. I think Bruce comes across as genreic because Dustin tends to differentiate between playboy!Bruce with the real!Bruce. The former is normally drawn with his hair slicked back and generic like you say and the latter is drawn with his hair unkempt and down with a stubble (which might a request on Dini's part since the previous artist drew Bruce with a stubble or five o'clock shadow imo). Dustin's Bruce/Bat is pretty much the best one around imo.


As for the second part, I agree. I mean this is just stupid. I originally though they were going to have him around for a while, fake his death so Bruce dying in a different time period to Batman's apparent death wouldn't cause people to connect the dots.

And Elliot's one arrogant little fuck. And racist too, it seems. I really, really want to smack him. So...good show, Dini, though he's a bit...trying as the protagonist and narrator.
