In the hope that the conversation will continue from yesterday…
I got into Doonesbury a couple of years ago because it is printed over here in The Guardian, but I soon started reading it on GoComics instead. What really helped was getting the 40th anniversary book for Christmas: it’s massive, with most of the key narrative story arcs in it.
Amazing to see how they all develop, and also how long many of the characters have been around, although there really does seem to be a bit of a “changing of the guard” now, as it becomes more Alex Doonesbury’s comic than Mike’s.
