    Two Face is not Hush, and yes Harvey seems to be back to normal.

    I suggest you read volume two before starting to ask questions. We have no problem answering them for you, but it's more fun just being surprised by watching the story unfold before you, isn't it? :)

    I think that was scrapped, considering Loeb's writing duties on Superman/Batman and Jim Lee's work on Superman. I do remember hearing about that though and it seemed pretty definite at the time.

    Well, if they don't, I hope someone does, because that's about the only other major unresolved issue that hasn't been followed up since HUSH completed. Someone will have to some time - I sincerely doubt that Two-Face is being written out of the comics, especially so passively - so here's hoping.

    I think that I read a silver age story once where he had his face fixed, but then an explosion rescarred it, amazing coincedence that it was. I figure that something like this will happen. Two Face is too good a villian to not have.

    Hope I won't get in trouble for bringing this thread back up...it is more recent that the original HUSH talkbacks, right?

    Anyhoo, I just borrowed HUSH volume two from a friend and read it through tonight. Great artwork, but slightly overdone. The story was pretty dull until the climax hit, and then it became very "Scream" like, throwing twist after twist at us, to the point where I wasn't even sure that it was over when the last guy revealed himself to be HUSH...

    ...

    SPOILER ALERT!!!

    Okay, so HUSH ended up being the new character the writers made up and "killed" earlier on in the series, right? But at the very end, his face is never shown and the body manages to get lost...as well as Jason Todds...

    So my questions are....was HUSH Tommy Elliot? What happened in his next appearances? Where was Jason Todd's body moved?

    END OF SPOILERS





    All in all, I'm glad I didn't bother buying this one. The dialogue and drama reminded me of a super-hero version of Passions. Kinda like the late Birds of Prey, only on paper, and in continuity. The art was appealing initially, but eventually wore me out. Too many lines, I suppose. And you mainstream guys are quite right when you describe the DCU Gotham as being dark. It's too dark, too serious, and not in any way menacing. There's no fun to be had.

    I doubt it. HUSH was big bucks for DC COMICS. I am sure it will be done eventually.

    Cool...thanks for the info. How could such a mish-mashed story be considered such a big deal?
    :shrug: Anyhoo...what happened to the two bodies whose positions were uncertain at the end of the HUSH storyline...any closure there either yet?
