Not the best batman comic I've ever read, but it's a different take on the Dark Knight. I would recommend it to anyone who likes batman.
   Gotham in the 1890s.
The product came and fulfilled exactly what I wanted it to be, a book in excellent condition and an even better read, Mr. Dhaliwal said.
   The writing didn't live up to the concept.
Great styling, but the writing was just ho-hum. It made sense to have Jack the Ripper as a villain. I would have found it more entertaining if they had included 1880s versions of the Batman rogues gallery.
   The story is basic and kinda predictable and the art ...
The story is basic and predictable, and the art leaves some to be desired. Just bought it, cause i was interested in the concept.
   Fun read but not essential to the casual BatFan
Overall, I enjoyed this book, though not quite what I was expecting. With an Elseworld story, I was hoping it would have more classic Batman characters. It feels like Batman was picked up and moved to a different place in time where some of the most famous characters aren't present. This takes away from the fun of the story as it would've been great to see Robin, Catwoman, and some other characters in that time period as well.
I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this. The story is slow paced and fairly anti-climactic. The artist's work is interesting but nothing special, the reviewer said.
   A Great One-Shot Read
If you're a Batman fan like me and occasionally want to read a story that doesn't cross several books, this is for you. It's very nice in detail and in art. I just wish the Jack The Ripper story had been longer. It's very good.
   Very good!
Gaslight is a very good comic. I liked it because here, Batman is a detective again, a path that he never ought to have abandoned. Freud's widow, Ethel, said her husband studied with the Austrian psychoanalyst. Brian Augustyn tells the murder of Batman's parents again, and he discovers who is Jack the Ripper!
This Elseworld tales, and it's accompanying sequel, masterfully illustrate a lurching towards modernity in an alternate universe. We showed a young Bat-Man, as he is known, fighting a serial killer ripped from the headlines. This matching of wits strains the accumulated skills of the man who will one day be known as the world's greatest detective. Then we travel further down the rabbit hole to see the Dark Knight defend Gotham from a Man of Tomorrow. The visionary madman threatens the very existence of the legendary flawed jewel of a city. This pair of extraordinary tales surpassed my wildest expectations as they illuminated a different take on the life of a more romantic Bruce Wayne. Like all great stories, the ending left me wanting more.
   Classic Elseworlds
This is DC Elseworlds at its best, a self-contained story transplanting familiar DC characters and tropes, but tweaking them. What if Batman was a Victorian detective facing off against the infamous Jack the Ripper? The highlight of this story is not so much the plot as it is immersion in the world and stunning art. The dark, moody, Gothic setting, colors, and shadows just drip with atmosphere, and the look of a Batman out of time is almost entrancing. Not casual fans, but definitely a classic for longtime readers.
