What does Mark see that has him gobsmacked in the last panel?
It couldn’t simply be an exotic animal… it has to be the vision of someone who has risen from the dead!! Recall that Dirty “Didn’t make it” after getting his burnt-up ass hauled to the hospital in the Rhino-horn caper…
But maybe it is just the black bear in a tutu… But is that sight giving Mark a PTSD moment from the time that a Black Bear with an illegal-trap-injured paw had him treed and worse?
Whatever it is, we can all hopefully be thankful that this little “episode” can move on to the next chapter in which “Mark Realizes he’s been wrong all the time, but can’t bring himself to apologize to anyone…” Stay tuned!!
