DC comics Earth 1889/Earth 19~

Earth 1889 (later re-designated as Earth 19) is the home to the first ever DC Elseworlds, specifically the setting of Batman: Gotham by Gaslight

The Batman of Earth-19 (far right) and his counterparts from parallel earths.

Released in 1989 the first Gotham by Gaslight, saw the Cowled Crusader take on none-other than Jack the Ripper:

There was a sequel (set in 1892): Batman: Master of the Future

This time Batman took the airship piloting Alexander LeRoi (who bore more than a passing resemblance to Jules Verne’s Rubor the Conqueror, and thus Vincent Price).

The most recent appearance of Earth-19 was with the publishing of Countdown Presents: The Search for Ray Palmer: Gotham by Gaslight

This time versions of Wonder Girl, Green Lantern and Robin (as the Challengers from Beyond) encounter the gaslight Blue Beetle and take on Man-Bat.
