    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    [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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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'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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I wanted to like this. Scott Snyder is an amazing writer and has brought some of the best Batman stories I have ever read. This was not one of them. Duke Thomas was introduced in the "We Are Robin" storyline a few years ago, and has been a minor part of the whole Bat-books scene sinc...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I love the look of this book. And Duke/Signal may be a good character, but Scott Snyder is not the one to tell that story. I don't think he has anything else to say in regards to Batman. This volume is okay at times but Batman and Signal have zero chemistry. ...

    great graphic novel, dc comics is one of the best, great writing and keeps the reader intrigued thru out the story.i have been reading comics and graphic novels for over thirty years and this one rates right at the top of the bunch. ...

    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 story that really brings the Duke/We Are Robin/ storyline to a full circle as Batman does something different. It may not be a new Robin...but lots of similar tales. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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'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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    '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...

    I wanted to like this. Scott Snyder is an amazing writer and has brought some of the best Batman stories I have ever read. This was not one of them. Duke Thomas was introduced in the "We Are Robin" storyline a few years ago, and has been a minor part of the whole Bat-books scene sinc...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I love the look of this book. And Duke/Signal may be a good character, but Scott Snyder is not the one to tell that story. I don't think he has anything else to say in regards to Batman. This volume is okay at times but Batman and Signal have zero chemistry. ...

    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...

    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'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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I love the look of this book. And Duke/Signal may be a good character, but Scott Snyder is not the one to tell that story. I don't think he has anything else to say in regards to Batman. This volume is okay at times but Batman and Signal have zero chemistry. ...

    great graphic novel, dc comics is one of the best, great writing and keeps the reader intrigued thru out the story.i have been reading comics and graphic novels for over thirty years and this one rates right at the top of the bunch. ...

    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 story that really brings the Duke/We Are Robin/ storyline to a full circle as Batman does something different. It may not be a new Robin...but lots of similar tales. ...

    A bit lost. Even with what seems like all the info about the character I still feel a bit lost. ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    '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...

    I wanted to like this. Scott Snyder is an amazing writer and has brought some of the best Batman stories I have ever read. This was not one of them. Duke Thomas was introduced in the "We Are Robin" storyline a few years ago, and has been a minor part of the whole Bat-books scene sinc...

    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...

    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...

    Collects Batman and the Signal issues #1-3, the story "Role Call" from New Talent Showcase 2017 issue #1, and the back-up story, "The Cursed Wheel" from All-Star Batman issues #1-4 and #6-9 Duke Thomas is the star of this book, and Batman appears a little bit. Batman works by night,...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I love the look of this book. And Duke/Signal may be a good character, but Scott Snyder is not the one to tell that story. I don't think he has anything else to say in regards to Batman. This volume is okay at times but Batman and Signal have zero chemistry. ...

    great graphic novel, dc comics is one of the best, great writing and keeps the reader intrigued thru out the story.i have been reading comics and graphic novels for over thirty years and this one rates right at the top of the bunch. ...
