    This volume is about Batman vs. Jack the Ripper.

    This is the first "Elseworld" story, Gotham by Gaslight takes place, retroactively, on Earth-19. Set in the 1880's, Batman must track down and defeat Jack the Ripper.

    It falls into the modern "steam punk" genre, in which a modern or future set of characters exist in a 19th century Victorian England setting.

    It has a sequel: Batman: Master of the Future.
