Definitely not in my newspaper as a kid. My discovery was wholly reliant on the internet.

His dad comes off as a local strongman of sorts with his own goon squad. Mark and Jolly might need to call in the A-Team.

The body count grows because there's no way that guy isn't bleeding even slightly.

I'm a bit confused by the storyline. So Mark is the one who seeks out his father, then yells at him and steals a boat, now says he's escaped. You initiated all this, Mark, quit acting like you broke out of a prison camp.

I don't like that there's no ambiguity here. The animal is actually talking.

Or, rather, Mark thinks it is. He's had conversations with frogs and something else already. Less Dr. Doolittle, I think, and more mental illness.

Yeah, he's very clearly disturbed.

I have a feeling we will go down that path eventually. You see Mark was neglected as a child and took solace in the animal friendships he was able to cultivate on the farm. He would talk to them because he had nobody else to talk to and became more withdrawn and eventually the animals started talking back to him.

Did Batman sound effects often include "GRAB!" 'coz that seems weird.
