Weekend Headlines - BATMAN & THE SIGNAL #3 Delayed Six Weeks

In comic book news DC Comics has announced that Batman & The Signal #3 is being delayed six weeks. Originally solicited for release March 7, it is now slated to debut April 18.

The publisher declined to comment on this story, but this is the third back-to-back delay for the three-issue miniseries. Batman & The Signal was originally announced to debut in November 2017, but was pushed back to January 2018. #2 was solicited to come out this week, but was previously delayed to a new February 21 release date.

DC has already solicited plans to collect the three issues - along with Signal's back-up stories in All-Star Batman #1-4 and #6-9 - in a softcover collection due out May 23.

Here is the updated solicitation for Batman & The Signal #3 - no cover has been released for the issue as of yet:
