Crossover Cover: Gotham by Gaslight
In 1889, Bruce Wayne returns to Gotham City and takes on the mantle of Batman, and soon finds himself hunting Jack the Ripper, who has fled England. In Austria, Sigmund Freud tells Bruce, “A good student, you have been. My friend, the English detective, said much the same thing,” a clear reference to Sherlock Holmes. Given the recasting of the Batman mythos in the Victorian era, and the final revelation about the Ripper's identity, this story obviously takes place in an AU.
