Comic of the Month - August 2008

It’s another edition of Comic of the Month, one of our monthly articles here. Comic of the Month will usually be on either the last day of the month, or the first day of the next month. Last month’s winner was Witchblade #119, but this month’s winner is something I’m sure everyone is familiar with.

Detective Comic #847

Detective Comics rarely gets the recognition it often deserves, mainly because people see Batman as the flagship Bat-title of Detective Comics, well the real starting comic is finally getting it’s due. Usually Detective Comics can be see as the Sensation Spider-man to Batman. Sure, it had it’s good stories and moments, but more than half the time, it’s side stories that don’t have anywhere near as lasting or big effect on it’s characters. Well that all changes with the storyline Heart of Hush.

Who better to write the first real epic Detective Comics storyline in years, than Paul Dini, a man who’s name and Batman go together instantly. While Dini hasn’t always had smooth sailing since he became the series writer, he’s really diving in here and giving us quite a show. The story of seeing Hush’ origin come to life was great, that along with the reveal of Scarecrow, Catwoman and Zatanna’s little chat, all makes for an incredible issue that you shouldn’t miss out on, especially if you’re a big Batman fan.
