The groundbreaking comic gets the mega-format it deserves…
1989’s Gotham by Gaslight by Brian Augustyn, Mike Mignola and P. Craig Russell was the unofficial launch of DC’s Elseworlds line. As you almost certainly know, it imagined Batman in Victorian times chasing Jack the Ripper.
Well, come September 2020, the landmark comic will become an Absolute Edition that will include the sequel Master of the Future and two other stories featuring this universe.
