Bookended By Wars, Doonesbury Turns 40
For 40 years, Garry Trudeau's Doonesbury has chronicled the tumultuous life and
times of its characters: Zonker, Joanie, Duke, Rick, "designated
grown-up" Mike, and B.D., who only finally, poignantly removed his
helmet when he lost a leg in Fallujah. Now their collisions
with history are collected in the hefty "40: A Doonesbury Retrospective." A rare interview with Trudeau here. Doonesbury's 200 greatest moments and much more here.
