Crowdsourcing Judge Parker

Yesterday I made an observation about the Judge Parker comic strip that turned out not be true. I had thought that current artist Mike Manley was the first to depict the exterior of the Spenser farm house, but an anonymous poster provided some panels from previous artist Eduardo Barreto showing the same structure (like the one below - click on image to enlarge).

Still, I appreciate Manley's attention to detail. It's definitely the same house, with the same number of windows on each side of the door.

If you consider how much time the average person spends reading a daily strip (measured in seconds), this level of craftsmanship is far above what the artist need to do to "get by."

So well done. Mr. Manley. And also many thanks to our anonymous commentator for setting the record straight!
