WHAT WOULD THE GOTHAM CITY OF THE 19TH CENTURY HAVE BEEN LIKE?
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?
Some would live in terror. Others would rest easier.
Only one man would take no notice at all...a man with other matters to attend to. His name? No one knows for sure. Most people know him only as Jack.
JACK THE RIPPER.
