One thing that must be commented on is the artwork. Mike Mignola, of Hellboy fame, did the pencils in Gotham by Gaslight and P. Craig Russell mastermind behind the comic adaption of Richard Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung, inks. The combination of these excellent artists makes for a graphic story seldom seen these days. There is a steampunk feel to both stories that is rather interesting to see in a Batman story. It almost feels like one is reading Alan Moore's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen only with Batman as the main character.
If there is any real qualm I have with this TPB is the fact that Mignola does not do the artwork for Batman: Masters of the Universe although his replacement in quite good nonethless.
This book is sure to entertain any Batman fan out there and is also a very good read for anyone wanting to be entertained without thinkning of that nasty word we all know as "continuity."

Really liked the two stories about 19th century Gotham. Having the Dark Knight battle Jack the Ripper was fun. What if they were the same person?Published 17 days ago by Michael R. Wilson
Not the best batman comic I've ever read, but it is a different take on the dark knight. I would recommend it to anyone who likes batman.Published 1 month ago by James Greenway
The story is basic and kinda predictable and the art leave some to be desired. Just bought it cause i was interested in the concept.Published 2 months ago by Medrano55
Honestly, this isn't one of my favorites, but it is an Elseworlds story that I'd recommend to someone who likes non-continuity stories. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Cool concept, sloppy execution. Batman's fight against Jack the Ripper glosses over any horror/thrills you would expect such a fight to have, but it's interesting. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Superfan
