There is some great news for fans of Batman’s Elseworlds Tales. The next feature set to be released from the animated branch of the DC film department is an animated adaptation of Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola’s Batman: Gotham by Gaslight.
The news was announced, unceremoniously, on the back cover of the Batman And Harley Quinn Blu Ray, which is currently being promoted and will be out for sale on August 29th.
If you aren’t familiar with the classic Batman Story, here is the description from Amazon:
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.
