This article is about the newspaper seller. For the Snow imp, see Benny (Snow imp).

Benny Gutenberg[1] is a newspaper seller within Varrock. He can be found near Baraek's fur stall. He carries a backpack full of newspapers on his back. He sells newspapers for 50 coins each. You have to buy a newspaper from him to complete the easy Varrock achievement, Read All About It.

He is a journalist, and has been since at least Year 160 of the Fifth Age, where he appears as such on the Varrock Census. He publishes and writes the news himself.[1]

His zombie version can be found in New Varrock selling a New Varrock edition of the newspaper.
