Last year Batman fans were treated to the animated version of ‘The Killing Joke‘, now another fan favorite Batman story is getting its own animated treatment. ComicBook.com has revealed that the next DC Animated film will be ‘Batman: Gotham by Gaslight‘! Check out more on this below and share your thoughts AFTER THE JUMP!
Batman: Gotham by Gaslight was originally released by DC Comics in 1989. The story was written by Brian Augustyn, drawn by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, and inked by P. Craig Russell. Batman: Gotham by Gaslight reimagines Batman as a Victorian era vigilante-detective investigating the serial killer Jack the Ripper.
In an age of mystery and superstition, how would the people of Gotham react to a weird creature of the night, a bat-garbed vigilante feared by the guilty and the innocent alike? The very first Elseworlds tale re-imagines the Dark Knight detective in Victorian times and pits him against the infamous murderer Jack the Ripper.
