Bruce the Ripper?,
This review is from: Batman: Gotham by Gaslight (Paperback)
Attempting to introduce Jack the Ripper into the world of Bruce Wayne/Batman was always going to be a risky move, as it requires either bringing the Ripper into the modern age, or putting Batman into history. Thankfully this tale chooses the latter, re-positioning Batman and Bruce Wayne as turn of the century figures who unfortunately get caught up in Ripper hysteria, and Batman has to track down one of history's most notorious killers.
The artwork is beautiful, and while the plot is a bit of a departure from the usual Batman adventures, it's well-written and unfolds at just the right pace. Highly recommended.
