    Seeing characters fans know and love in a completely different setting is half the joy of this, such as Dick Grayson, Jason Todd and Tim Drake – the three original Robins – as a vicious gang of street urchins

    Likewise, for as timely as Jack’s actions may be in regards to current society, it’s also a one-dimensional to have his only reason being that, well, he hates women

    As someone who almost religiously watches all the DC animated films this is pretty interesting.

    The year is 1889, and Gotham is held in the grip of terror by the killer known only as Jack the Ripper. The only person who appears able to oppose this homicidal madman is the mysterious Batman, who must unravel the few clues left behind.

  36. Theuns

    “While that makes sense since Batman is meant to be the world’s smartest detective, at times it seems heavy-handed.”

  37. Ramona

    While Jack the Ripper is an overused cliché, it’s also a fitting match-up and allows for an intriguing mystery as his identity is kept secret until the end
