Mark Trail by Ed Dodd & Jack Elrod (0890-) 1st Appearance 1946 - Mark Trail must be classified as a documentary strip about nature preservation.  Ed Dodd created the strip putting in an element of light adventure, but that would mostly disappear.    Instead, nature scenes with a trademark silhouette would be most often be the focus of the strip.  Inspite it's sedentary focus,  Mark Trail lasted over 50 years as a staple of the comic pages.  The market for Mark Trail is somewhat light.    Because of that, good runs can be obtained quite reasonably.  Offered mostly as tabs, halves or smaller, collectors especially like the strips which contained the 'Trail Ways' side feature.
