Batman - Gotham by Gaslight by Brian Augustyn Requirements
: CBR reader, 17 MbOverview
: Elseworlds have a habit of falling apart towards the end as the writer tries to jam epic events into the final few pages. Gotham by Gaslight does not suffer from this weakness. In fact, Gaslight is as taut and well-conceived a graphic novel as you can fine -- Elseworlds or otherwise.
Taking place in Victorian-era Gotham City, Gaslight imagines that Bruce Wayne has just returned from England, having studied abroad to prepare for his role as dark avenger. No sooner does the Batman appear than a rash of grisly slayings hit Gotham City. The murders are identical to those of England's own Jack the Ripper. The most likely suspect? Bruce Wayne, a man who's travels fit the timeline for the Ripper slayings in England and one who cannot account for his whereabouts at night. Quite simply, no other Elseworlds tale has managed such a brilliant concept nor executed it so perfectly. Sample pageReviewMore comics from this writerDownload Instructions
