In Drippy’s Mama, the first volume of The Adventures of Drippy the Newsboy trilogy, Vancouver artist and animator Julian Lawrence brings his iconic Drippy the Newsboy to life!

In the first part of this trilogy based on the writings of Stephen Crane, the naive Drippy gets pulled into the world of the Forbidden Zone by Harry and his alcoholic pals. His papers do not get delivered and his mother is concerned. But after his darling mother grows ill Drippy sees the error of his ways.

Lawrence is known in Vancouver’s underground press as a co-creator and editor of the free monthly
Drippy Gazette and publisher of numerous Drippytown comic anthology spin-offs, but here his cartooning chops are on full display. The Adventures of Drippy the Newsboy harkens back to adventure serials like Tintin, complete with nostalgia and epic storytelling, but with much more drinking, gags, and carrying on. Will those papers ever be delivered on time?
