Both stories are good in their own way, though I felt the stronger of the two stories was Master of the Future. While I wasn’t quite as wowed by the story presented in Gotham by Gaslight (the “surprise” ending was anything but), I personally enjoyed the art by Mignola and P. Craig Russell a little bit more.
Please don’t take that as a knock against the work of Mr. Barreto!
I just happen to be a MIke Mignola fanatic and seeing his pencils inked by also incredibly talented P. Craig Russell is a unique treat.
So there you have it. I enjoyed the writing in one story a little more than the other and enjoyed the art in the other story a little bit more than the other.
I’m quibbling here. The overall work is definitely worth a look.
Now the story, which is why I rated it 4 stars and not 5. The main story is pretty short and does not offer much in terms of a build up or conclusion. Its a good read on a lazy afternoon. I would not consider it bad, its just a little above average.
But overall, considering the price, I would definitely recommmend this to add to your collection.

Set in the late 1800's, the story allows for Batman to take on a well-known murderous foe: Jack the Ripper!
The story is pretty good. The artwork is very good. And the novelty of the tale is excellent. This was the first Elseworlds graphic novel, and given its success a series of such adventures followed.
If you're a Batman fan, and you enjoy alternate story-lines to the main saga continuity, you'll probably like this.
The actual comic book is printed on glossy paper. The drawings are simplistic, but artful. On the whole, well worth reading.
