Doonesbury has managed to be articulate, abrasive, political, compassionate, misunderstood, misprinted, and outrageous-but one thing it’s never been is complacent.
Garry Trudeau’s creation has chronicled American history and culture in a parallel universe. And through it all,Doonesbury has always been honest, entertaining, and way, way cool. Welcome to the age of pivots. Two centuries after the Founding Fathers signed off on happiness, Zonker Harris and nephew Zipper pull up stakes and head west in hot pursuit. The dream? Setting up a major grow facility outside Boulder, Colorado, and becoming bajillionaire producers of “artisanal” marijuana.
G.B. Trudeau’s Doonesbury is now in its fifth decade, and has chronicled American life through eight presidents, four generational cohorts, and innumerable paradigm shifts.
