    Batman Seduction of the Gun (1993) 1

    To some people, guns are a scourge; to others, a Constitutional right; for still others, they are merely a means to achieving an end. But at every level of society, children find guns, usually by chance...and often at the cost of their own lives. In BATMAN: SEDUCTION OF THE GUN, Batman and Robin confront the issue of gun control head on, in an action-packed and thought-provoking tale of gun-running, gang violence and the insidious lure of firearms. Inspired by today's headlines, this special takes a hard look at the way guns are perceived and used, with particular emphasis on their accessibility to juveniles. It is an extensively researched look into the subject with a strong emphasis on a story that avoids advocating any particular political view. Written by John Ostrander, with art by Vince Giarrano. Painted cover by Dave Dorman. 68 pages. Cover price $2.50.
