In light of this long “weekend” I thought I share this leisure reading review…because Pastors sometimes need a break from heavy theological reading too!

Scott Snyder.  Batman & the Signal. Burbank, CA: DC Comics, August 28th 2018. 168 pp.

4 out of 5

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 stories about Duke Thomas who later became known as “the Signal” in the second half of the book.  One of the thing that I like about the character Duke is that it breaks out of the mold that Batman’s partner has to be another “Robin.”  Instead in the collected stories of Duke Thomas both in this book and elsewhere we see Batman’s deliberate attempt to raise Duke up to be more than just a “sidekick” but for him to be his own person.  I really appreciate the writer Scott Snyder exploring a deeper and more maturing view of human nature and longings and desires.
