Batman: Gotham by GaslightÂ takes place at the turn of the century as Americaâ€™s continued industrial revolution is to be showcased at a Worldâ€™s Fair hosted by Gotham City. But while the world prepares to witness the glittery glory of Gothamâ€™s technological advances, there is a killer loose in the cityâ€™s darkest shadows. Preying on the cityâ€™s women, this killer is as precise as he is cruel. As Police Commissioner James Gordon tries to calm the fears of Gothamâ€™s citizens regarding the butcher called Jack the Ripper, the masked vigilante Batman enacts his own detective work â€“ with the help of confident, capable Selina Kyle â€“ to stop the Ripperâ€™s murderous spree. Witness a world in flames as the notorious serial killerâ€™s controlled savagery meets the calculated stealth of the Dark Knight.
