The Unwrapped editions highlight the original pencil artwork of classic DC stories in black and white. Previous editions include Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's Batman: The Court of Owls, Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis' Blackest Night, and Grant Morrison and Tony Daniel's Batman R.I.P.

Batman: Hush, by Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee, was previously collected in 2011 in the Unwrapped format. The 2002-2003 storyline, which spanned Batman #608-618, followed Bruce Wayne as he investigated a mysterious bandaged figure who was organizing Batman rogues' gallery against him. An immediate critical and commercial success, the influential storyline established the modern romance between Batman and Catwoman, which culminates next month in their wedding in Batman #50, and led to the reintroduction of Jason Todd, as Red Hood.

A bestselling artist and a co-founder of Image Comics, in 2010 Lee was named co-publisher of DC alongside Dan DiDio. He added chief creative officer of DC Entertainment to his resume last week when he succeed Geoff Johns in the role.
