Not quite copy-paste levels yet, no. In both of the strips, if you look at the thickness of the lines, there's some difference. Similarly, where the lower earlobe and the neck connect, the lines are different. And the curves of the upper and lower portions change between panels, even if the design and layout stays the same. So it's hand-drawn copy-paste B^U
Moreso, the way that it looks it just horrendous. It's easy to draw and replicate on the fly... but so is something that actually resembles an ear. It takes maybe twenty or thirty minutes of iterative practice to memorize a really simple rendering of an ear and stick with that, but... Well, I guess not. Instead you've got that horrendous abomination, I guess because it's like... four lines to draw? I just. They look worse in the older comic byfar, at least the newer one captures the shape of the ear... sortof. But I guess when you just draw a fucking curve for a nose, and you put it in the wrong place (if they were looking straight-on, their nose would be off to the side based on that perspective), I shouldn't really expect much from something that's drawn with -gasp- more than one line!
