OtherWhere The Vagrant’s Tail

Arthur Meadows fell into a downward spiral and lost everything after the voices and visions started.His average day consisted of bumming money on the street, and trying to forget his tattered life.But not every person he meets is all that they seem, and a seemingly chance encounter leads to a very different end to the day.This is a Spin-off story from my Novelette 'The Crazies'The Life and Times of Dread takes place in the world of the year 2114 where the United States has now been in a carefully negotiated Nuclear world war for over 50 years. The bursting populations of the Earth are herded into giant mega-cities, which sometimes become targets of nuclear destruction once they are nice and full. Dread lives in the Northern Bronx of New York on the ground level, and is a member of the Bronx gang called The Beatles. After the Beatles leader Clark Kent takes a liking to Christopher Robin Dread, (probably because his middle name is Robin,) Dread finds himself now the sidekick of a guy who wears a super hero outfit and thinks he's Batman. Dread is trained to swing around the infrastructure of the New York Mega-city and assists Batman with his obsession of fighting crime. The team of crime fighters soon find themselves over their heads when they uncover a plot by Washington DC to plant bombs in the New York Mega-City. Washington DC intends to blow New York up and blame the Asian Block Nations of an unauthorized nuclear strike in clear violation of the rules of nuclear war. This graphic novel by Davol White was written back in the early 1990’s, years before bombs went off in New York and were blamed on Asian nations.
