What she got in that mug, anyway??

Welcome Amy Lee! We are continuing to round out the character roster in the new Mark Trail…

Of course Mark’s reputation precedes him! Even though he feels like he’s yesterday’s news and without prospects, apparently there is a quiet undercurrent of society that hasn’t quite forgotten him…

Appropriation! Ha! that’s a word that has never been used before in the Trailverse… Let’s unpack that, shall we?? …the action of taking something for one’s own use, typically without the owner’s permission. How, pray tell, does one go about getting a fox’s permission to use it as a spirit animal? Besides, in certain spiritual traditions or cultures, spirit animal refers to a spirit which helps guide or protect a person on a journey and whose characteristics that person shares or embodies. It is also metaphor, often humorous, for someone or something a person relates to or admires. Sense of humor much? Let’s see where this goes, but if we are asked to go too far down the PC path, this could get a little taxing… Or perhaps this is simply a window into Amy Lee’s world view.

  1. Yeah, that was my reaction, as well. Move away from this lady as fast as possible! This might be my own interpretation, but from the way she is portrayed, I’m guessing Jules is also poking fun at her.

    But what the heck is that curtain or swag behind her? Oh, this must be her working from home because of the pandemic! And the trick will be, when she does show up at the office, she’s in a bespoke business dress and professional hair.

  2. Good lord. It’s been awhile since I checked in. Part of the great charm of Mark Trail (for me, 40 year old woman) has always been the vintage aw, shucks outdoorsman charm. Why does everyone in the new strip look like they’ve been hit in the face with a Lodge cast iron skillet?
