“Batman: Gotham by Gaslight” is a 2018 American animated steampunk superhero alternate history action thriller film produced by Warner Bros. The storyline puts Batman against the classic serial killer Jack the Ripper, who preys on Gotham’s poor and destitute women.

When I saw the cover in the store I thought it look really cool and wanted to see it in an instant. I bought it and to be honest I was expecting to see the same cool cover art as the animated film, but low and behold it was not that at all. The animation is more juvenile/childlike and doesn´t have the steampunk rawness to it I was hoping for. The idea is there, but the content was not what I wanted at least. I sometimes feel cheated when great artists create the cover art of a film or comic and then someone else does the actual animated film or comic.
