An Interview with Mark Trail

From time to time, my blog affords me the opportunity to interview various newsmakers and important personalities. For 62 years, Mark Trail has adorned the comic pages, telling the fascinating tale of a rugged conservationist as literally hundreds of millions of readers have watch, rapt by the comic's no-nonsense attitude and constant action.




Without any further adieu, I'd like to welcome Mark Trail to the TPWK.


Mark Trail: He wondered aloud whether they were birds after all...

TPWK: Right. Now, as one of the most established serio-comics, you've touched on a variety of important themese, including environmentalism and the importance of the family.

Mark Trail: You mind your manners, Rusty.

TPWK: I sense that this interview is unfruitful, to some degree.

Mark Trail: With this wind? How could it be?

TPWK: Ummm, that's all the time we have here on TPWK. I'd like to thank Mark Trail for stopping by.

Mark Trail: That was it! He split the lumber and called it a day.
