Can you imagine Batman being a crime fighting superhero during the Victorian era of the late 1800s?  I think that would be a cool setting for Batman!  And this trade paperback edition definitely did not disappoint!  This is part of DC Comic’s alternative world series they called Elseworlds where they have various characters in different era. Previously I have read a story from the Elseworlds series titled Batman: The Blue, the Grey, and the Bat in which Batman is a hero during the era of the American Civil War.  I enjoyed that story enough that when I heard of this story (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight), I knew I had to read it!  As I researched more about this book I learned that this is the first volume in this series.  Although this Trade Paperback edition was published in 2013 originally the issues that’s collected in this volume was published in 1989.  I started being a fan of Batman comics relatively late compared to most fans (in my late 20s) and have found stories like this one from the 1980s were really enjoyable.
