Today's Mark Trail doesn't really count, but... I just love talking about Mark Trail
I've said before that Mark Trail is at his best when there's a bear involved. I'm afraid Jack Elrod might be reading my blog and got carried away with my enthusiasm, because all of a sudden, there are just too many damn bears.
There's the angry, injured bear that Kelley keeps taunting:
There's Buck Jones' pet (and possibly more) bear:
And now there's the yet-to-be-seen bear that's been knocking over this mustachioed yokel's bee hives.
In a case of Shakespearian (or maybe Three's Companian) mistaken identity, the yokel is about to shoot the pet bear, thinking he will be getting revenge for his lost honey. It's a classic tragedy waiting to happen.
But no matter what, it's just too many bears.
