    Following The Nerd - Sarah Barclay Jan 4, 2014

    My only gripe is that it felt like a bit of a quick read, but overall it was an enjoyable start to a short arc. And some cameos by the Penguin is never a bad thing, in my eyes! Read Full Review

    Silent issues can be a fun break every now and then and Hurwitz and Ponticelli have done a very good one. That being said, some dialogue would be welcome next issue, as a confrontation between Batman and the Penguin is going to happen, and a fight isnt as much fun without the banter. Read Full Review

    Not too shabby as far as wordless comics go. The book has an important message to tell with just the right amount of emotion, especially coming from Batman himself, that makes the story felt. Read Full Review

     This issue set out to do something very specifically, and it accomplished that. The art has no problems portraying a story with no dialogue, there's no denying that. The only thing that really takes away from it is the fact that a similar, more personal story has been told with Batman, using the same schtick, and that one did it better. It's unfortunate, because while this is generally a good issue, it just perpetuates this title following in the wake of the other Bat titles. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 5, 2014

    Batman: The Dark Knight #26 ends up being an average comic at best. The art fits the dark story nicely, but the same old problems the book has been plagued with still manage to rear their ugly heads.  The Dark Knight is not good at his job and that always brings this title down in the end.

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Dec 31, 2013

    Not really good or bad, but a very middle of the road book. I would personally skip it, but if you do decide to go ahead and pick it up you'll at least be mildly entertained by the novelty of a silent comic or the very dark and depressing story. Read Full Review
