    Not bad, but I want to see more, to know more about Duke and what's going on with him. He supposedly has some sort of meta-human abilities, but what the heck are they? They never make an appearance in this volume that I can see. Duke Thomas, The Signal, is the latest in a fairly long l...

    This volume introduces a new member of the Bat Family known as The Signal. Duke Thomas was introduced during Zero Year during Scott Snyder's run on Batman and received his own series as a part of a group of teenagers who centered their group around Robin. That had impressed even Batman...

    Duke Thomas was involved in the "Robin War" and now he is being trained and mentored by Batman. But Duke will be operating by day, not at night, as Signal. But is he up to the task of cracking the case of metahuman teenagers cropping up in the Narrows of Gotham? He has a team backing h...

    Yep, I'm cheating again. Adding the TPB, even though I read this in floppies. But, hey it reads ok either in installment or in one sitting IMO (damn, I'm so old when it comes to net slang). Look, I'm way behind in Scott Snyder's Batman and, that I barely know who Duke Thomas is. Reg...

    The newest addition to the Bat Family is Duke Thomas, who chooses the name The Signal as his nom de guerre. Like many trainees before him his parents have come to harm, this time poisoned into insanity by Joker venom. But Duke is different. He doesn't want to work in the shadows, but i...

    'Batman & The Signal' by Scott Snyder and Tony Patrick with art by Cully Hamner and Declan Shalvey takes the Duke Thomas character and makes him a hero. At least he's not another Robin. He was never meant to be a Robin. Batman has been training Duke for something. Only Batman se...

    Duke Thomas arrives to take the Bat-family's day shift. The story here, which seems to be both a retelling and a rebooting of Duke Thomas as a character, was more than a little bit confusing. Duke's being a meta was news to me, even after all his other appearances in Snyder's vario...

    It was nice to pick this up from the beginning, and I liked the characters in this one. It was definitely worth checking out and I can't wait to see it up on shelves! ...

    Does anyone like Duke Thomas?? I never have! Scott Snyder?s annoyingly been trying to make this character a thing for the longest time now and he?s never taken off with the Batman readership ? take the hint, dude! Batman & The Signal was DC?s last chance to make the cas...

    This was more about the new DC Comic hero ?the Signal? than it was about Batman although Batman played a big part in this book and it was Batman who trained the Signal into his role of being a crime fighting hero. This book collects various issues of Batman and tells us different s...

    Decent but not amazing. I like that all of the buildup around who Duke will be as a member of the Bat-team finally paid off in an interesting way-- him basically being the day shift in Gotham. That said, the specifics of this book-- re-publishing a previous arc and then his combat with...

    I have to say I didn't quite get it. Telling Duke about the wheel kind of makes it pointless, right? He shouldn't know he's training? And then it didn't seem like the story really concluded. Then there's a second story where Gotham has mutants and Duke is the king of the muta...

    First time with the character Signal. Guess I wanted more. Liked the cover. Story felt like it had potential but just missed for me. Mysterious time origin had something. Artwork was close. Felt story needed more. The metas (mutants) and the danger room holodeck action threw some curve...

    [Read as single issues] Duke Thomas is Batman?s newest sidekick ? The Signal! But where Batman and his associates usually operate at night, The Signal?s time is from sun-up to sundown. With untested powers, no back-up, his We Are Robin friends pissed at him for ditching them, an...

    As soon as I received Batman and the Signal from Goodreads First Reads, I read it and took it to my classroom.....high school struggling readers. They are devouring this book. I'll need to purchase more copies it's so popular. Thanks. ...

    A mixed bag in terms of story, but a new character in the cave is a lot of fun in this case. Also enjoying the new status quo change in Gotham. The art is gorgeous throughout, and the design and execution of the Signal is just fun to look at. The Snyder "Cursed Wheel" story is probably...

    Introduced in the first issue of the Zero Year arc during Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo?s Batman run, Duke Thomas is initially presented as an incidental character. However, much like Harper Row ? another original creation by Snyder ? the more appearances he makes, it?s obvious...

    First, a thank you to Edelweiss and DC Comics for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. Duke is not a character I would ordinarily be interested by but he is an interesting lens through which to see the Bat Family ? not mention...

    Batman and the Signal was a little too focused on the Signal?s feelings and history to feel like a fully fleshed out plot. Duke Thomas, formerly a Robin, is now the Signal, a daytime crimefighter in Gotham. In addition, Duke is one of the increasingly common metahumans, those whos...

    ????? Batman & The Signal tells the story of Duke Thomas aka The Signal; Batman's newest recruit. The Signal is now basically a day-time Batman, and was formerly a new Robin. I really enjoyed this graphic novel! It is very fresh, fun, exciting, and gives us a n...

    Snyder does a good job of establishing Duke Thomas's character in the All Star Batman back up stories that are reprinted here as well as in the All Star Batman trades. However, there was way too many new things introduced in the 3 issue miniseries that is the only new content here. ...

    Not that good at all. World: The art is okay, it?s nothing special, the colours are a bit muted and the characters are a bit stagnant and lack enough personality to express emotion. The world building is okay, it?s probably the most solid part of the book. The idea of building a...

    I'm not that familiar with the Duke Thomas character. I did read the backups featuring him in Snyder's All-Star Batman, and those were interesting. But I never read the We Are Robin series or any of his other appearances. So I'm not terribly familiar with him or with the supporting cha...

    It's time to meet Gotham's day shift. Batman & the Signal introduces a young new super-hero, the Signal. Trained by Batman, the Signal is well on his way to being a great detective who wants to stand on his own two feet. No side-kick roll for him, the Signal even has his own lair. ...

    The plot was all over the place but I did enjoy the ending. What I liked about this book mostly steamed for the main character: Duke. He's a member of the bat family but doesn't feel like he fits in, since he fight's alongside Batman but doesn?t wear a Robin custom. He has light m...

    Ever since Duke Thomas helped Batman just as he was beginning his vigilante career as a child, Duke Thomas always wanted to be a hero. He led an insurgency of teen Robins who insisted that their movement's namesake did not really need a partner. In the aftermath, Batman himself has tak...
