Moralistic Mark!

Out of the mine/cave and back into the light, JJ starts to plead his case…

Why he continues to wear his pack is puzzling… but at least it’s a distinguishing factor when viewing the group in long-angle silhouette… As Mark continues to scold him and remind him of how “irresponsible” we was to do this!  Wait ’til mark runs into Dirty Dyer and his flame thrower… I doubt the same sermon is going to have a similar effect…

You tell ’em, little lady!!

Enough with the waterworks!

Now let’s just get back to our sad little lives, more keen and wise for the experience!

What’s it been?  Less than a week in Trail-time?  There are days I wish my own life would slow down a bit!  The days, weeks and months melt away a little too quickly these days…

 

Oh, Boo hoo!

Really?

Well, I guess remorse comes in its many forms…  and unless JJ is an accomplished method actor, then I suppose we should take him at his word…

If this story is wrapping up, then I guess we should all be grateful!  This one didn’t feel as drawn out as some others…  Now we need to snap our fingers and have the Lost-Forestians say farewell and goodbye to Leola and JJ, both of whom we will likely never see again.  Heck, Leola didn’t even have a chance to fall for Mark and Mark didn’t have to expound on the fact that he’s a “Happily Married Man…”  Small wonders, I guess…

Don’t Patronize the Old…

It doesn’t help!!  And Mark, your “feeling” face is a might off-putting…

Small cave?  Seems large and well-lit to me…  I mean, you ARE standing up and seem to have plenty of shoulder room!

OK, let’s wrap this up.  Punch lines that last a week are (unfortunately) typical, but nonetheless tedious…

Doc is cycling…

… through some emotions…  Shock, Anger, Denial, Bargaining, Acceptance.

You can see them all on his various expressions…

Easy there, big guy, don’t hurt yourself!  That head-swivel is reserved for those a little younger than you…

All righty then!  Enough with the Mark-splaining…  This is getting more tedious than usual!

She still has the gun!

And I can’t stop looking at how she is drawn in panel one…  What happened to her hips?  JJ isn’t saying much either…  At least not while Mark is man-splaining away…

Poor Doc!  He had such high hopes!  The disappointment on his craggy face is obvious, even from a rear-three-quarter angle…

We been had!!

And it would appear that this stranger was a very a patient sort…

Such is life…  This Bearded Stranger also appears to have been a Confidence Man…  playing on the hopes and dreams of others- including JJ, Doc and Leola… Mark was the only one of the group to keep his head on straight…

Now what to do about JJ?  Now that he has shown his true colors?
