A Mark Trail retort

[Mark Trail, July 11, 2015.]

Mark needs a boat. His editor Bill Ellis points out that the last one the magazine paid for got blown to bits. Mark’s reply offers a joyous philosophy of life: “Ha! . . . That wasn’t exactly my fault!” I’m not sure about the ellipsis though. How long to pause? Must practice.

I'm beginning to wonder if Allen is trolling you by deliberately updating the "recycled" Mark-on-the-phone panel from your July 6 post.

I think most (all?) comic strips are created weeks in advance, so I would guess that the recycling was in the can, so to speak, a while ago. StatCounter gives me no reason to think James Allen is reading. But who knows? Like facial hair for villains, recycling is a Mark Trail tradition: maybe Allen feels he owes it to readers to keep it going.
