White, meet White

Again with the “Mr. Trail…”

“Exciting for the Local People…” what a dick!  Probably something you might think, but oh yea… there are few to no inner monologues in Mark Trail!!

And Enter Rusty… all Gob-smacked and Starry-eyed…

He told you his name, you asshole… but still you go with the always available and condescending “Kid…”  Looking over his shoulder as if already walking away.  Nice work, artist in residence.

  1. Well, Mr. Allen fooled me twice, I admit! Trail DID bring along at least most of the family, after all; and it really IS the actor who is a d-head. So much for reverse-casting.

    Another point: Jeremy somewhat resembles Jeffrey Donovan, the lead actor on Burn Notice. I’ve read “here and there” that he was a real piece of work with a personality to match. Not sure it is true, of course, but perhaps Mr. Allen saw similar posts when he was putting this story together.

    Finally, who drew Cherry and Rusty? Gee-whiz! In B/W they are even more disconcerting. Cherry looks like an aging grandmother trying to look young and wearing something garish that was popular even in the 1950s. And Rusty looks a poster child for “passed down” clothing. “You’ll grow into these things, Rusty. Don’t worry what the other kids say. They were good enough for your your Dad!”

  3. I’m not sure why James is still signing the strip considering he’s “moved on”. I think we’re back to cartoonish characters again and Mark looking like a morph of his old self.
    knowing what we now know I just find all of this odd.
