Finished Gotham by Gaslight last night. The penciling was done by Mike Mignola and the script by Brian Augustyn.
The whole idea is what it would have been like if Bruce Wayne and all the events that made him Batman happened 100 years ago around the turn of the century. The Caped Crusader takes on the infamous Jack the Ripper.
Its awesome to watch how everything translates. The art is amazing- Mike Mignola is a perfect fit for Batman and especially a throwback Batman. The coloring done by David Hornung is dark and sets the mood perfectly.
Only if wish it were longer. I felt a little like the ending was rushed and I wanted dearly to know more. Find it though. Its very entertaining and awesome.
