    They’ve gone all Ted Turner on these strips that were originally black and white.

    1970. when being a “lover boy” was still thought of as a good option on college campuses.

    … leaving aside that the only one ever likely to think of Mike as a “lover boy” was himself!

    Forgot how much of a dork Mike was in the beginning.

    Recalling that GT knew what B.D. stood for in 1970, more so today!

    Ah yes… the old days. Decades before Doonesbury jumped the shark and Gary began just phoning it in.

    I think it’s wonderful to see these old classics. Hopefully you will continue to publish them on a day-to-day basic like… forever!

    Those of you looking for fresh strips may have to wait a while… http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/garry-trudeau-announces-extended-hiatus-comics-pages-will-run-classic-early-strips/2014/03/02/aaf94a88-a0a8-11e3-a050-dc3322a94fa7_story.html
    Personally, I don’t mind strolling down classic lane. This weeks is strips from the launch in 1970, only a few years before I started reading this strip regularly.

    Did the trolls bitch and moan like this when Watterson and Breathed decided to put the pen down? G. T. Has been at this for more than forty years! If he wants to do other projects, or just kick back and enjoy the fruits of his labor, that’s just fine with me – thanks for the laughs, and sometimes, insights. Poor indignant trolls – when you’ve given us forty SECONDS of entertainment, come back and we’ll talk. Until then … Go away!

    Cute strip today. Can’t wait to see new episodes of alpha house, that should also be great fun.;) and we now get to see the younger versions of people we have talked about.

    Since Doonesbury is and always has been in the Editorial section of our local newspaper, I never took the time to read the strip until I started reading Gocomics about 7 years ago. Now I can see why it was never in our comics section.

    I had every Doonesbury compilation book that ever came out, including the one including this art. Then a friend borrowed fifteen of them, something that didn’t concern me since I knew how fast he could read through them. But I didn’t think he and his family would leave them scattered about the out door deck in a rainstorm.
    Oh well.

    Never loan or lend a book you want to see again.
    I put my initials in all my comic strip paperbacks my senior year and left them in an unlocked locker.
    I expected to never see them again.
    .
    i saw kids all over Century High reading them.
    Most did not know me.
    At the end of the year, they were all back in the locker.
    I was pleasantly surprised at the group honesty.

    I’ve been a fan from the beginning. The strip was first in the Detroit Free Press’s comics section until Joannie went to bed with Redfern. Then it was banished to (I think) the editorial section.
