The final volume of the Drippy the Newsboy series based on the writings of Stephen Crane. Join Drippy, Harry, Bleeker and Zot in The Dripping Boat, as they battle waves, wind, wits, and wills. Following a shipwreck, the four find themselves stranded on a lifeboat, frantically trying to reach an invisible shore. Rub a dub dub, four men in a tub . . . but how many will return?

Drippy the character emerged in 1999. Lawrence had been working as a comics editor at a Vancouver weekly publication called Terminal City. When Terminal City folded, Lawrence and a couple of other ex-employees rallied to put together their own monthly newspaper, The Drippy Gazette. The mandate of the monthly publication was to feature artist interviews and events, and keep the Vancouver comics scene together. While the newspaper lasted 12 months, the mascot of the paper lived on in Lawrence's work.
