Heil Parker

Thursday Story Strip Day.

Even though the stories are said to be pretty bad, I find there is much to admire in Dan Heilman's Judge Parker. Maybe it is his gentle Milt Caniff influenced style, but maybe not even that. It's the story telling choices he makes. I think he would do prety well in today's newspaper market, actually. In my opinion this strip has suffered from the hackwork of Heilman's successor LeDoux (however he badmouthed his mentor in one of his last interviews).
