Mark Trail

I can't quite figure out the target audience of Mark Trail. The stilted dialogue, over-simplification of adult relationships, the whole "Cool! Animals!" premise, the non-existence of police, and whatever's going on in panel three all suggest that it's directed at the 8-11 age group. But the whole insurance fraud story line's gotta be screaming BORING to the average sugar-high Play Station addict.

I also don't get Dan and Sally's escape plan. They were going to leave for another country from the airport, but Dan's in hiding.... It's almost as if Dan said he wanted to go somewhere that ID isn't required, and Sally said, "I know! The airport!"
