Format: Paperback
Another great book fom the best Political Cartoonist around today and also for a long time. I used to read many Comics for years,but the only one I follow these days is Doonesbury. There have been several in the past that were giants in their day My favourites were L'il Abner by Al Capp,remember the Schmoo (Social

Security) and Sadie Hawkin's Day;Pogo ,By Walt Kelly,and his take on Joe McCarthy; and of course Dick Tracy,by Chester Gould,when a crime meant punishment, not a social issue. My local papers no longer carry it,but thanks to the Net,I can still follow it.Capp's replacements give it the old college try,but it lacks the zing of the master. I sure hope Trudeau keeps it up;it would leave a huge gap if didn't.

This book covers the very tumultuous time time from May 28,2001 to June 29 2002. What a year with 9/11,international stuff like Terrorism,Afghanastan and all,then at home with Enron. And then there's all the other Doonesbury issues like Mr.Butts,Walden College and the ever present shenanigans around White House politics;with of course Trudeau's humorous take on it all. These books are great to read a few years after the fact;and bring back wonderful memories of the past strips.

Trudeau's artwork continues to amaze me. In this period his portrayal of the destruction at the WTC on 9/11 is outstanding.

The only shortcoming in the book is that all the strips should have been in color. Black and white just doesn't do his artwork the justice it deserves.

Your wisest move is to eyeball the first page of the book (courtesy of Amazon) and sample the inventiveness that accompany the cartoonist's forays into social analysis and world events. The topic is enslavement to the computer + the resultant generation gap penalizing hapless parents, and the 3 strips shown (out of 30 in the book) are a good springboard to his wide range. A good bulk of the collection is devoted to whacky spinoffs of the aftermath of 9/11, with plenty of side attention to president Bush's White House conferences with advisors, with Bush an unwitting court jester who needs things simplified and then patiently explained to him in semi-baby talk. We also find ourselves amidst the swirl of Afghanistan violence on the ground, with warlords changing sides multiple times & working hand in glove with the amoral, globe trotting CIA pragmatist sent from Washington. Other topics are the $500,000 artistic grant given to a "performance artist" who glues together broken crockery smeared with rancid mayonnaise and "makes a statement" about globalism and saturated fat by hurling a fire extinguisher through a MacDonald's window --- the grant money is an aid because now she can make bail in the future. There's a fun episode on hepped up CIA recuitment after 9/11 + plenty of other topics besides the aftermath of 9/11 that get the priceless Trudeau treatment.

This collection is especially good and wide ranging. It isn't dated --- and won't ever be.

I love the honesty of this collection. Trudeau says what he wants without caring if someone says he should go back to canada (even though Trudeau is a new york state native). Trudea takes it all in stride and comes up with some great polictical and social satire.

Doonesbury is still the best comic strip out there. The only serious competition it had was Peanuts and Calvin & Hobbes, and they are gone.
Doonesbury has warmth, humor, relevance, and sting. Get it.

I no longer read Doonesbury either in books or in the paper.
Trudeau has become cynical and vicious. His wit has descended to mean spitefulness and I for one am not surprised. When he took a "sabatical" or whatever label you want to call it I suspected something was up. Better for him to call it a day.
For what it's worth I REALLY miss "Bloom County" by Berke Breathed.
