The above image has been found on Amazon’s site, as the back of the Batman and Harley Quinn cover. As you can see, it shows that the Blu-ray will feature a sneak peek of the DC Universe’s next animated film, Batman: Gotham By Gaslight.

For those who don’t know, Gotham by Gaslight is a fan favourite Batman story written by Brian Augustyn with art by Hellboy’s Mike Mignola and inking by P. Craig Russell. The graphic novel features a Victorian-era Batman in 1889 fighting Jack the Ripper in Gotham City. Basically, it’s a steampunk Batman that hunts down the famous serial killer. It’s probably one of the earliest Elseworld stories for The Dark Knight.

The book’s synopsis:

“In an age of mystery and superstition, how would the people of Gotham react to a weird creature of the night, a bat-garbed vigilante feared by the guilty and the innocent alike? The very first Elseworlds tale re-imagines the Dark Knight detective in Victorian times and pits him against the infamous murderer Jack the Ripper.”

Directed by Sam Liu (Batman: The Killing Joke), Batman and Harley Quinn stars Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester, reprising their Batman: The Animated Series roles as Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson.
