Rivera seems to have taken up the standard Mark Trail story tradition of ending an adventure by simply calling “CUT!” and, presto-change-o, we’re back in Lost Forest. I hope they got their romance satisfactorily concluded, since the batphone just rang, and they are hardly back from their vacation. Mark has not even had time to change. Oh, wait. He never changes clothes.
But this time, the call to action seems to be on Cherry’s phone, leaving Mark to once again ponder his relevance and lack of fame and fortune. And thanks for the patriotism reminder, Cherry, but Mark beat you to it in the Sunday strip.
