Mark Trail


And I'm back--only to discover one of the slowest Sundays in memory.

Heart of the City by Mark Tatulli

Pooch Cafe comes close, but it doesn't quite count as a silent penultimate panel.

Those two silent panels do show progressive action. Very slow progressive action, but progressive none the less. And, actually, I think it works. I grant it a funny pass.

So while I was gone, I missed out on some of the best Mark Trail action ever. The Comics Curmudgeon has already commented on this here and here, but I can't let a good ol' Mark Trail slugging pass without comment.

Damn! That's right, Mark!

And there are some classic bad-ass, gun-wielding lines in this world, such as:
"Say hello to my little friend."
"You've got to ask yourself one question, 'Do I feel lucky?'"
And now we can add the ultimate one: "You stole a friend of mine's pet bear!"

This is why we love Mark Trail.

Monday's Baldo has a particularly egregious example.

So, does Mark Trail punch the guy in the first panel? If so, he punches so hard that the blue shirt turns orange and the guy's hair falls out around his ears.
