A large hardbound collection of Doonesbury strips. We see the early stages of Alex and Leo's relationship, up to the point where Alex starts mapping out a future for her and Leo -- without consulting him first. Jeff begins his CIA career which goes tragicomically wrong, and segues to a new career as the creator of "The Red Rascal", freedom fighter for Afghanistan. The widow Doonesbury joins the Tea Party and burns her Medicare card -- then she burns her hand in the process and has to get it treated, courtesy of Medicare. Melissa Wheeler, the Army helicopter mechanic who is still dealing with issues of sexual predation in the military, is getting her life together and is promoted to Sergeant. Alex graduates from MIT.The Widow Doonesbury passes on, and Duke's company rescues the tyrant Bmzklfrpz (pronounced just the way it's spelled) from his country's revolution. Jeff gets the job, performs it in his inimitable screwup fashion with the "help" of his chosen sidekick Zipper. Just another packed collection of great strips about the denizens of one of my favorite cartoon universes, the world of Doonesbury. ( )

I was reading Doonesbury before I really understood a lot of the material. This is Trudeau's most recent collection and deals with both the classic and next generation of characters. Another interesting aspect of the comic strip is that the author lets his characters age and evolve as time passes instead of leaving them forever static. Never one to shy away from controversy, Trudeau combines current events with the characters' lives in thought provoking ways. Managing to make you see and empathize the character's point of view even if you don't always agree with it. Even after all this time Trudeau's work is still fresh and entertaining. ( )
