One of my favorite perks about working in the comic book industry is seeing the process at which stories and art evolve. Being in the Publicity department, I get to look at black and white copies of the pencils and inks that artists do before they’re sent for coloring and ultimately to the printer to appear in the book form you’re used to picking up every Wednesday. With the deluxe hardcover BATMAN: HUSH UNWRAPPED, fans are invited for the first time to step behind the curtain and see the creation of one of the most fan-beloved Dark Knight stories from recent years. See industry legend Jim Lee’s art in its original pencil form as it illustrates Jeph Loeb’s story, which finds Batman attempting to uncover the identity of a mysterious villain who is forming an army of allies out of the Dark Knight’s Rogues gallery. BATMAN: HUSH UNWRAPPED is not just a treat for comic book fans but is also a must-have for industry and art enthusiasts as a whole. This holiday season, there’s no gift better to unwrap than BATMAN: HUSH UNWRAPPED. And if you’re an art book lover and want to read BATMAN: HUSH in full color, check out the just back in print ABSOLUTE BATMAN: HUSH, which includes BATMAN #608-619, a 2-page origin of the Dark Knight, a sketchbook section and more.
