Writer: Tony Patrick

Artist: Cully Hamner

Colorist: Laura Martin

Letterer: Deron Bennett

Cover Artist: Cully Hamner and Laura Martin

The Signal (a.k.a Duke Thomas) first day just keeps getting worse! Now at the Narrows chaos erupts as newly formed meta-humans take the streets to take them over. The Bat-family races in to help fight off these new treats as The Signal goes up a top of the city to finally face the person behind all of this… Gnomon. For some reason, this Gnomon knows things of the Signal’s past that have put Duke’s skills in question.

What you need to know:

This is the third and final issue for Batman and The Signal. It would have been nice to see this series get itself off the ground and go into territories that Batman comics never went into. But I guess this is where it ends, for now hopefully. To see Duke grow and become his own hero was a great sight to see. Now fully embedded into the Bat-family, I cannot wait to see what other adventures the Signal will go to next.

What you’ll find out:

As the Narrows are taken over by the new Meta-human wave, the Signal comes face to face with Gnoman, the person behind everything that has been going on lately in Gotham. But when the Signal finds out who Gnomon might be, the Signal begins to question is whole life. Unable to stop Gnomon and understanding that he might have the same powers as he just advanced, the Signal losses hope that he may not be ready to stop such a threat. With the help of Detective Aisi and an amazing save from Batman, the Signal looks to stop Gnomon once and for all.

What just happened?

The Narrows in under attack! Newly formed Meta-humans made from Eighth Metal by Gnoman run the streets. The Bat-family fights on and Batman kicks the hell out of one of them that touched his car. No lie… I had to stop reading and laugh when this happened. Also, why were all the meta-humans villains? Like does everyone in the poor area of Gotham set their sights to be super-villains? Just a thought.

Summary
Well folks this is where The Signal ends. Hopefully we get to see him again on other Bat-family adventures, but for such a small moment, it was great to see Duke Thomas be his own person. To see another side of Gotham that wasn’t the dark gritty underworld were so used to seeing and reading was quite refreshing. We forget that people still have to live their lives when the sun comes and to finally see that they now have a hero to protect them during the day and not just during the night is such a great sight to see. I applaud DC comics for taking a chance on this story and hope to see The Signal once again. Maybe have his own group of minority heroes? Let’s go DC give us some of that Static Shock and The Signal… with Black Lighting as their mentor? Lord that would be amazing.
