Elsworlds befor "Elsworlds" or Batman vs. Ripper,
This review is from: Batman: Gotham by Gaslight (Paperback)
Alternative history books - "proper" or comic - start with The question - "What if?" In this case, what if Bruce Wayne happen to live in "innocent" Victorian times - than he could easily become a friend and an apprentice of Sigmund Freud and visit London at the hight of Ripper crimes...
It seems that bat mythos is as reach and as flexible as Greek ones you can tell them again and again in different decor, use different cast - and hav ethe same impact!
Beutifully paced story, darkly magnificent art - and horror grandmaster Robert bloch as an intro writer - what can be better?
Definitely worth hunting for.
