Some would live in terror. Others would rest easier. Only one man would take no notice at all...a man with other matters to attend to. His name? No one knows for sure. Most people know him only as Jack. Jack the Ripper. Brian Augustyn (The Flash), Mike Mignola (Hellboy), and Eduardo Barreto (The New Teen Titans) spin the classic tale of the Victorian-era Bat-Man's encounter with the Butcher of Whitechapel and a crazed prophet determined to prevent Gotham City from entering the 20th century, presented for the first time in the slipcased Absolute format. Collects Gotham by Gaslight, Batman: Master of the Future, Convergence: Shazam! #1-2, and Countdown Presents the Search for Ray Palmer: Gotham by Gaslight.
