Inspired by the landmark one-shot Elseworlds tale by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola, BATMAN: GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT takes place at the turn of the century as America’s continued industrial revolution is to be showcased at a World’s Fair hosted by Gotham City. But while the world prepares to witness the glittery glory of Gotham’s technological advances, there is a killer loose in the city’s darkest shadows. Preying on the city’s women, this killer is as precise as he is cruel. As Police Commissioner James Gordon (Scott Patterson) tries to calm the fears of Gotham’s citizens regarding the butcher called Jack the Ripper, the masked vigilante Batman (Bruce Greenwood) indulges in his own detective work — with the help of confident, capable Selina Kyle (Jennifer Carpenter) — to stop the Ripper’s murderous spree. Witness a world in flames as the notorious serial killer’s controlled savagery meets the calculated stealth of The Dark Knight. Sam Register, Bruce Timm, Benjamin Melniker and Michael Uslan are executive producers.
