The title character was playing too close to the edge of the well and is now stuck down there. Shane uses this simple set-up as the basis for a collection of strips in which Elder ponders his predicament. He has to deal with boredom, rats, the cold, the damp, a lack of food and the lack of action on the part of God to save one of his flock.

As is the norm with Shane's work, this has more than its fair share of laughs per page while the artwork of each panel consists of a pair of eyes at the bottom of dark hole. Not much action here but lots to amuse.

In a Word: Dark.
