The long anticipated second installment of Julian Lawrence's trilogy (based on Stephen Crane's work) is here! The Red Drip of Courage finds our hero, Drippy the Newsboy, preparing to go to war with the enemy. After several false rumours (and, presumably, editorial retractions) in the Gazette, the boys are finally on the march. But their enthusiasm for action is soon extinguished by the harsh reality of conflict with the Forbidden Zone's Army of Fire. Will the Drippytown troop make it home in one piece? And if they do, will they be intact?
