Mark Trail: My stepfather must really like animals to get so many!

These two comics ran back to back. They are virtually the identical, except in one of them the little girl wants to put the deer into the pen, while in the other the little girl is glad she doesn't have to put the deer into the pen. Why? Because it's Mark Trail, I guess, and that's just the way Jack Elrod rolls.

For those of you who are behind on the current plot, by the way, it involves a wannabe politician, a mysterious fence, a bunch of animals, big game hunting, a little girl and a pet deer.


  1. I think the little girl wanted to put the deer in the pen to play with the other animals for a while, but is glad it doesn't have to stay in there all the time.

    Mark Trail dialog is too awkward to ever know for sure, though.

  2. Frankly, I stopped giving Elrod the benefit of the doubt years ago.
