9780836204377: Flashbacks: Twenty-Five Years of Doonesbury (Doonesbury Book)

Since emerging from it's cozy campus origins in 1970 and making its national debut in 29 newspapers, "Doonesbury" has evolved to encompass a vast, interrelated cast of characters, and now appears in more than 1,400 newspapers worldwide. This unique quarter - century anniversary anthology offers the essence of the strip - over 800 daily and Sunday strips that form the core of the "Doonesbury" saga, all fully annotated to document the strip's effect on the wider world. Acclaim and outrage, ire and impact are duly noted - "Doonesbury" has left an impressive and entertaining trail of fallout, and outlasted many of it's most vocal critics. In addition, the strip's creator logs on with an introduction, and in a Q&A series addresses some of the questions he has so adroitly evaded in the past.

Review:

A must for any fan, this annotated collection of more than 800 strips, from the late '60s to 1995, includes comments from Trudeau and many of his satirical targets. From its beginnings in the Yale University student paper, Doonesbury quickly spread through newspapers in the U.S. and across the world, and the strip is currently featured in more than 1400 publications. Its strength has always been its nimble response to the ever-changing landscape of American culture, and even though many of the events in this volume have passed into history, or even obscurity, the humor is as fresh as ever.

For almost three decades, Trudeau has offered a refreshingly satirical take on everything from Watergate to Zippergate while following the ups and downs of a cast of characters that have become as well-loved as any in literature. The comments from newspapers, politicians and other that surround the strips reproduced in Flashbacks serve a dual purpose. They provide a context for readers who may not have been born when Nixon was president, and they amply demonstrate the enormous impact of Doonesbury on the American political landscape. It's funny too! --Simon Leake

Review:

In its 25 years, Doonesbury has managed to be articulate, abrasive, political, compassionate, misunderstood, misprinted, and outrageous. Garry Trudeau's creation has chronicled a 25 year period of American history, politics, and culture in a parallel universe. From the shock waves of Watergate to the technowar in the Gulf, from the controversial tour of Reagan's brain to the landmark tobacco trials, through it all, Doonesbury has always been honest, entertaining, iconoclastic, and way, way, cool. In Flashbacks, Trudeau collects his thoughts and cartoons in a highly annotated four-color Doonesbury masterpiece. -- Midwest Book Review
