Batman: Gotham by GaslightÂ takes place at the turn of the century as Americaâ€™s continued industrial revolution is to be showcased at a Worldâ€™s Fair hosted by Gotham City. But while the world prepares to witness the glittery glory of Gothamâ€™s technological advances, there is a killer loose in the cityâ€™s darkest shadows.
