A 10-cent adventure from DC Comics


By Laura Liebeck<br><br>

For the first time in 40 years, DC Comics (New York) is offering a full color 32-page comic book for 10 cents. Batman: The Ten Cent Adventure went on sale Jan. 2. It follows a night in Batman's life that ends with a cliffhanger, serving as a springboard into a new storyline running through DC Comics' Batman-related stories via other titles in January and February.

The newer story was scripted by Batman creative team writer Greg Rucka, penciller Rick Burchett, inker Klaus Janson, and cover artist Dave Johnson.

Paul Levitz, DC Comics executive VP and publisher, calls this special comic a "one-shot deal" that also serves as a definitive primer on Batman, presumably to capture a newer generation of readers.
