Resurrecting a Zombie Comic Strip (Keep the Exploding Boats, Please!)

This week marked the debut of a new writer/artist for "Mark Trail". "Mark Trail" is an American newspaper comic strip that's been running since it was first created by Edward Dodd back in 1946. The new writer is Jules Rivera, creator of "Love, Joolz", and now "the sole daily syndicated female Latinx cartoonist." This might seem like just a mildly interesting, perhaps encouraging development, but in the world of newspaper comic syndicate discussion forums and social media more broadly, there's no story so small that it can't be the cause of crazed over-reactions.
