DC has canceled the upcoming Absolute Edition of Batman: Gotham By Gaslight.
No reason for the cancelation was provided, though the book “will be solicited again in a different format.” The Absolute Edition was announced in December, for a September 2020 release.
This follows a recent pattern of DC cancelations, which has seen multiple Absolute and Omnibus editions announced and then pulled — later to be resolicited in trade paperback format.
The original solicitation for the Absolute Edition reads as follows:
ABSOLUTE GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT HC
