Batman: Gotham by Gaslight by Brian AugustynI have already this graphic novel a few years back but in this reread Ive myself enjoying it much more, especially after reading Alan Moores Jack the Ripper opus, From Hell.
I saw a lot of hidden Easter eggs that I would have otherwise missed had it not for my newly earned knowledge of the Ripper legends from Moores work. It gave me more suspects to choose from.
Mike Mignola does a superb job here. It is gothic and brooding and fine preview of things to come in Mignolas own Hellboy. I may as well look for physical copy of this one, if only to have tactile experience of this seminal graphic novel.
