When it comes to comic characters, Batman’s story is the most widely told. There have been many versions of The Dark Knight over the years, but people are still finding ways to make the character feel fresh. Batman: Gotham By Gaslight offers an alternative take on Bruce Wayne by telling his story in the Victorian era. The animated movie sees Batman take on Jack the Ripper in an epic Elseworlds tale that mixes history and comics together. Familiar faces are given new backgrounds and Gotham is reimagined as a sinister metropolis of industry and smoke.
