It was a very significant comic; just a few years before DC Comics had published "Crisis on Infinite Earths" which merged the histories of the publisher's various parallel universes. Then they announced that they weren't doing any more parallel universe stories.

Then, to everyone's surprise Gotham by Gaslight, was announced. It was a single-issue, slickly printed, square-bound comic, telling the story of the Batman of the 19th century. It would lead to sequels in which Batman would meet Houdini, and battle an airship-flying Rober type character, and would launch a whole line of comics in which DC's classic heroes were placed in a variety of historic and pseudohistoric settings.

And I never expected to see it adapted to other media.

One of my two all time favourite Batman books.

The other was obviously 'The Dark Knight Returns' and the two-part animated version of that was very faithful to the source material so let's hope the same is true in this case.

Even the Batman/Deathblow crossover was Art-deco and airships.

There was "Wonder Woman: Amazonia" which takes place in an misogynist alternate 19th century England witch I thought was unnecessarily harsh, and "Wonder Woman: The Blue Amazon" which was a sequel to "Superman: Metropolis" and "Batman: Nosferatu", which I thought was the weakest of the trilogy of stories inspired by German silent films, and suffered from a kitchen sink syndrome of throwing in elements from multiple films.

There was also "JLA: Age of Wonder" which was pretty much steampunk Justice League, but I don't recall if Wonder Woman was in it.

Amazonia was the one I was thinking of. Age of Wonders was good too.

On rewatching the 1966  Batman movie,  it does have definite dieselpunk overtones  to exploit
