Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No matter what's occurring on the planet, Doonesbury has offered readers a parallel universe. Through the adventures of cherished characters like Mike, J.J., Boopsie, and B.D., Doonesbury has chronicled the course of time with humor and wit. Whether it was an anti-Vietnam march or the Cyber Valley of Seattle, Doonesbury has given readers a hip and happening place to be, if only for a few minutes every day.

Created by master cartoonist Garry Trudeau, Doonesbury remains a dynamic force. Its political slant consistently amuses readers, sparks controversy, and frightens editors. Political characters appear frequently--humorously represented by time bombs or waffles--but the strip isn't entirely political. Trudeau deals with young love, broken relationships, and the raising of a few young kids, but the strip isn't really about warm-fuzzies either. For the millions of readers who turn to Doonesbury every day, the strip is simply a favored friend. Controversial yet always contemporary; familiar but rarely perfectly comfortable.

In this collection, Planet Doonesbury continues the adventures of all the regulars, from Father Duke and his recently revealed son, Earl, to the impending marriage of Mike and Kim. B.D. returns to Vietnam, and with Phred as host, discovers a war of sorts is still being waged--not over changing politics, but the race to make money in the now industrialized country.

Presented in an exciting format, the handsome Planet Doonesbury features large-size color Sundays.
