In this conclusion to the storyline "VOICELESS," the illegal immigrants of Gotham City have been forced into slave labor by the Penguin. And Batman will stop at nothing to shut it all down!

    Honestly, I would recommend just skipping issue #26 and reading this one alone. It's a decent silent comic with plenty of action and a direct story any Batman fan can enjoy. It doesn't offer anything we haven't seen a hundred times before but it's enjoyable if you're in the mood for a really quick read– it is a silent comic after all! I do wish that the visuals were more consistent throughout since there isn't any dialogue or prose, but artist Alberto Ponticelli definitely delivered more impressive pages for this finale.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Feb 3, 2014

    With only a final two-part story about Man-Bat still in the wings (drawn by Ethan van Sciver), it's a little sad to see "Batman: The Dark Knight" coming to a close. It always tried to do something different, something darker under the guidance of Hurwitz. The level in which it landed might have varied from issue to issue, but there was always something to bring you back. Still, with Hurwitz and Ponticelli's two-parter as a perfect example, it was a comic definitely worth checking out month after month. Read Full Review

    On one hand, this was a nice little story, dealing with something more personal than Gotham's latest psycho, on the other hand, it just didn't feel like it amounted to a whole lot, which has been this book's problem for a while now. It's kind of hard to say anything past that, given the book is already cancelled. It would sort of be like kicking a dog when it's down, because I could go on and say that this is the Batman book the character doesn't need, it's just excess, blah blah, but it'd be pointless, because that's known, and that's why it's ending in March. I can't say I wish this book would amount to more, because I know it won't, so I'm just left indifferent to the series, and this issue. It was fine, it really was, but I don't really have anything that great or that bad to say about it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 29, 2014

    Batman: The Dark Knight is O.K.  The art is good, but the story is forgettable and that's what this issue and the arc in general were, simply forgettable. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jan 29, 2014

    This was a decent issue, but the fact that there were two consecutive issues without dialogue could be hard to get over. While Hurwitz and Ponticelli did a good job telling the story through the pictures, not being able to read will frustrate some fans. The series is winding down, heres hoping Hurwitz takes it out with a bang. Read Full Review

    Not bad, but largely forgettable. I enjoyed Ponticelli's art on Frankenstein: Agent of Shade, and continue to enjoy it here. It's a nice change of pace from DC's "house" style. That said, there's not much of real substance here, though what is provided is enjoyable enough.
