    Zoos let people see how wild animals used to huge stretches of wilderness behave when confined to a few square metres of enclosed space. I remember seeing a tiger just continuously walking around in a tight circle.

    Curious. 15 years later, and just as this strip is being rerun, Dixie Chicks are back in the news.

    @BillJackson1 — But Steve still acts like Steve, not as a figment of Opus’ imagination.

    Well, we have ad-blockers, and cat videos dominate YouTube regardless of how meaningless they are. I think Lars’ idea does have merit.

    What is the deadline for Sunday strips anyway? It used to be months, so he couldn’t be very topical in them anyway.

    He did get a Pulitzer, back in 1975, for editorial cartooning. There were protests about whether a comic strip could be eligible, and after being assured that the award could not be revoked, Trudeau supported the protests. :-)

    The changing background details were a staple of the series until the early 1980s. Before then, it was not unusual for the strip to have a sequence of almost identical looking panels, with characters always in profile, and no change except for the characters’ expressions. Seemingly just to break the monotony, Trudeau tended to change some random background in the final panel. Then he had a two year hiatus, and when he returned, the style had changed. It was far more varied in use of “camera angles” and views of the characters. The changing background details didn’t really appear much in the new style.

    There’s got to be some payoff for all the setup of Grimm’s gambling problem.

    Trudeau grew a bit himself. During Vietnam he thought it was a fun idea to have BD become lost and running into and befriending a V.C. Later on, he made an effort to learn of soldiers’ real experiences, in order to make the strip more authentic.

    How about: “Now would be a good time to get in out of the rain.”
