Here's the back cover for the UK release (similar to the US) revealing a 78 minute runtime. Can't quite remember if we knew this before, but there we go...

If you are in striking distance of the Washington DC area, be advised that tickets for the 1/12/18 screening of Batman: Gotham By Gaslight at the Newseum can now be reserved through Eventbrite. There is no charge for admission. If you think you can make it and want to go, I recommend submitting your RSVP sooner rather than later. I don't know how big the theater is but there's no guarantee this will be open for more than a few days.

The clip is there and viewable on Google Chrome and Firefox. Cannot confirm on Internet Explorer or any other browser. The clip is also available on the official Warner Bros. YouTube channel.
Huh. It must be on my end. Clips from previous stories are no longer playable for me either.

EDIT 01/13: Annnd, now the player is working for me again! Not that I'm complaining. :D

I think it's cool that we get to see Bruce Greenwood play more into the Bruce Wayne side of things, albeit in a Victorian-era Bruce Wayne, since in both Under the Red Hood and Young Justice he had far more screentime as Batman :).

I was wondering about this elsewhere, do we know who the character designer is?

This might be a little controversial, but I kind of wish they went with a different art style for this one. While the animation looks beautiful, I think the character models are just a little too cartoony. Yes it makes it easier to animate with a limited budget and it provide a contrast to the more ''mature'' material being presented on the screen... but still.

It didn't have to look like Mike Mignola... I just wish they would experiment and take more chances with the visuals.

I had not read before that The Doom That Came to Gotham is another Elseworlds tale that's high on the list for adaptation. I'd be up for that!

My daily reminder of Twitter being cancer on level with TikTok (which is worse, despite not being around as long.):


Yeah: I thought a boy and a girl becoming more than friends was usually the norm when it came to building healthy future relationships, last time I checked. Or is it that these characters are straight?
devil cookie pfp time!

because of this tweet...
So NERF sells Minecraft toys apparently...
Something I've noticed about Popeye on MeTV's Saturday Morning Cartoons as of late- not only are there now 4 shorts instead of 3, they're mostly, if not entirely, ones from the 1950s. A decade that Warner Home Video has yet to tackle for the Sailor Man. Almost like it's a sign.
Here is my multisource Sparta "no BGM" remix. Enjoy! :)
