In the Victorian era, an age of mystery and superstition, how would the people of Gotham react to a weird creature of the night, a bat-garbed vigilante feared by the guilty and the innocent alike?

Some would live in terror. Others would rest easier.

Only one man would take no notice at all…a man with other matters to attend to. His name? No one knows for sure. Most people know him only as Jack.

Jack the Ripper.

Brian Augustyn (The Flash), Mike Mignola (Hellboy) and Eduardo Barreto (The New Teen Titans) spin the classic tale of the Victorian-era Bat-Man’s encounter with the Butcher of Whitechapel and a crazed prophet determined to prevent Gotham City from entering the 20th century, all presented in stark black and white. Collects both Gotham by Gaslight and Master of the Future.

Presented in Mike Mignola’s original pencil and ink art, without color, giving the art a moody, noir feel

This is the first and the best of DC’s Elseworlds tales, which placed familiar heroes in unusual settings, and pitted them against some of the greatest villains from fiction and history
