The start of the Elseworlds saga!
on 2 April 2016
This one-shot graphic novel is part of DC Comics 'Elseworlds' series - which takes an established character (in this instance, Batman) and inserts them in an alternative world to their normal continuity. Here, Batman exists in a Gotham City of the Victorian era.
Set in the late 1800's, the story allows for Batman to take on a well-known murderous foe: Jack the Ripper!
The story is pretty good. The artwork is very good. And the novelty of the tale is excellent. This was the first Elseworlds graphic novel, and given its success a series of such adventures followed.
If you're a Batman fan, and you enjoy alternate story-lines to the main saga continuity, you'll probably like this.
