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.
This collection is especially good and wide ranging. It isn't dated --- and won't ever be.
Doonesbury has warmth, humor, relevance, and sting. Get it.
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.
