Críticas:

"For millions of readers, Trudeau's lacerating comic strip -- launched in 1970 as a campus doodle called "Bull Tales" -- has helped make tolerable some of the past four decades' most stupefying political outrages. Perhaps because it doesn't dote on Trudeau's beltway hobbyhorses, this gorgeously produced anniversary set -- compiling 2,000 or so of the 14,000 strips in "Doonesbury"'s still-thriving run -- cuts closer to the core of modern American experience." -(John McAlley, NPR) "The sprawling cast of G.B. Trudeau's "Doonesbury" comic--Mike, B.D., Boopsie, their friends and, increasingly, children--have been the pen-and-ink Zeligs of the baby-boomer era and beyond. Four decades on, this volume has the heft and warmth of a favorite family album." -(Time Magazine) "Garry Trudeau's "Doonesbury" turns 40 this month. To call it satire is only half right. "Doonesbury" has taken on all the topics you'd expect--from Vietnam to Iraq, from drug use to gay marriage. But satire has a short shelf life. "Doonesbury"?'s big heart and moral compass are what give it staying power." -(Cullen Murphy, Vanity Fair) "Doonesbury has been loved and hated because it has candidly and often hilariously skewered social mores and politics. Thanks to a crew of lovable, dynamic if not always clearheaded characters, Doonesbury is still a vital part of the national discussion." -(Dan Lybarger, Huffington Post) "Massive Doonesbury Retrospective Worth It: 700-page 40th anniversary 'Doonesbury' retrospective well worth the investment...If this one simply was an anthology, it probably still would be worth the three-digit retail price, but Trudeau's musings on his creation and the other cool extras put "40: A Doonesbury Retrospective" squarely into must-have territory." -(Mike Householder, Associated Press) "Doonesbury is certainly one of the greatest comic strips ever; as this collection proves, it's also one of the greatest pieces of serialized, topical fiction ever produced by an American." -(Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly) "This is the perfect gift for anyone who is half-decent in any way. How could anybody not want it? ... Mr. Trudeau has become perhaps our nation's most important real-time historian; playing a role in sanity-saving not unlike Jon Stewart but not only before his time, but for four straight decades..." -(Eric Alterman, The Nation, Altercation Gift-Giving Guide) "Trudeau's creation, which started as a jokey commentary on campus life at Yale, has evolved into a sprawling masterwork with a cast of characters big enough to make Tolstoy wonder if he was trying hard enough." -(John Schwartz, New York Times) "As one thumbs through the book - which Trudeau edited by culling more than 14,000 strips - it is near-impossible not to be struck anew by the weight of the comic's achievement in storytelling: Beyond the biting politics and topical commentary, "Doonesbury" at 40 reads like a novel told one poignant punch line at a time. As if by stringing together four decades of one-a-day calendars, the cumulative effect was Joyce." -(Michael Cavna, The Washington Post) "Trudeau has just kept improving, year after year, in part because he stays so close to changing events... A great modern American history course could be taught using this volume of collected strips, stretching from Watergate to Afghanistan." -(Garry Wills, The New York Review of Books) For millions of readers, Trudeau's lacerating comic strip launched in 1970 as a campus doodle called "Bull Tales" has helped make tolerable some of the past four decades' most stupefying political outrages.

Reseña del editor:

Doonesburychronicles the adventures and lives of an array of characters of various ages, professions, and backgrounds, from the President of the United States to the title character, Michael Doonesbury, now a middle-aged, remarried father. What began asBull Talesin the Yale Daily News in 1968 became Doonesbury when it debuted as a Universal Press Syndicatefeature in 1970. The strip followed the lives of college roommates B.D. and Mike Doonesbury from their first encounter through the intricate life turns they experience, along with the cadre of eccentric and engaging characters they encounter over the next forty years. Always political, relentlessly pointed, expertly drawn and written, Doonesburyis a classic in its own time, and this book commemorates that special place in cartoon history it holds.

Descripción Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2010. Hardcover. Condición: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. New book still in publisher's shrinkwrap. A massive, weighs over 10 pounds, slipcased hardcover book that chronciles all of the significant events and characters in the Doonesbury comic strips 40 year run. Includes for the first time a four-page foldout matrix that details the many and complex relationships among the characters. The matrix is remarkable in its scope and the essays written by Trudeau about the characters and their relationships add a depth and prospective to this volume that a mere reprinting of the leading strips would lack. This is a must have item for any fan -- and one hopes it will lead to a series of books that reprint all of the strips. Current list price: $100.00. Nº de ref. del artículo: 008589
