Best Mann: The cows figured out the difference

Best Mann For The Job #34: You're not going to believe this, but the whole thing with the cows is inspired by my boyhood on the farm. (Although, while cityboy here says it's because the cows "figured out" the difference, the unspoken truth here is that cows are too dumb to trick. And the real-life farmer I'm thinking of never seemed to understand that.)

Best Mann For The Job stars Grace Mann, a woman with a complicated past who returns home to become sheriff of Hope Falls, Tennessee. This serial drama aspires to the style of the classic serial comic strips, with the crime-bustin' chops of a rural Dick Tracy, the small-town charm of Gasoline Alley, and the emotional touches of The Heart of Juliet Jones. (Or if you prefer, imagine if T.J. Hooker became the new sheriff of Mayberry.) Latest strip exclusive at
