Panel 1: Another great moment in stilted non sequiturs! Tune in next week as Cherry describes her plans to acquire an ecru-colored rug to hang on the wall in the cabin and Mark responds with an excited, "I like spinach for lunch!"
Panel 2: If this weren't Mark Trail, I might start thinking that "pet deer" is another word for "beaver." What else would explain the adolescent leer on his face?
Panel 3: Is it me, or is there a total disconnect between the action in this panel and the dialogue? Patty Frampton looks like she's waving good-bye as she turns to walk back to her house. Mark looks like he's about to gallop off in the opposite direction, or at least over the cliff on which he's currently perched. Yet, despite these visual cues, Patty Frampton is saying hello. C'mon Jackelrod Sphere, you can do better than this.
