Batman: Gotham By Gaslight takes place at the turn of the century as America’s industrial revolution is to be showcased at a World’s Fair hosted by Gotham City. But while the world prepares to witness Gotham’s technological advances, there is a killer loose in the city’s shadows, preying on the city’s women. As Police Commissioner James Gordon tries to calm the fears of Gotham’s citizens regarding the butcher called Jack the Ripper, the masked vigilante Batman enacts his own detective work to stop the Ripper’s murderous spree.
