💥 FIRST PRINT! MIKE MIGNOLA CLASSIC!
• Arguably the first Elseworlds publication, though the first book to actually carry the Elseworlds banner is Batman: Holy Terror. Gotham by Gaslight spawned a sequel entitled, Batman: Master of the Future which carried the Elseworlds imprint.
Gotham by Gaslight is a DC Comics one-shot by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola, with inks by P. Craig Russell. The story revolves around a 19th-century version of Bruce Wayne making his debut as Batman just as Jack the Ripper has arrived in Gotham City.
Although it was not initially labeled as such, Gotham by Gaslight is considered to be the first Elseworlds story in which DC Comics characters from alternate timelines or realities are featured in stories outside of the DC Universe canon. While not originally labelled as such, subsequent printings of Gotham by Gaslight have incorporated the Elseworlds logo. It spawned one sequel, Batman: Master of the Future (1991), also written by Augustyn, with art by Eduardo Barreto.
