Highlighted by a series of sequences on Watergate, this volume includes the strips that established Doonesbury as a political presence, as distinct from the social commentary role of the earlier work. The walls rising in front of the White House, the tour of Watergate conspirators, the scenes with Nixon comparing himself to Lincoln. Add the saga of Joanie's applications to law school and the first of Mark's turns as bartender at the Walden class reunions and it's vintage Trudeau.
These small (a little more than pocket size, unless you're wearing a mackinaw) specialized books tend to focus on particular characters. This is one of my favorites, because I've always been fond of Joanie Caucus. Most copies of these small collections tended to go walkabout from libraries, but they didn't end up in used bookstores. I have to think they're sequestered in private libraries. Not mine, alas! But somebody's.
I read this and other Doonesbury books with great interest when I was pretty young. Now I get more of the jokes. I also remember how "grown up" these comics were--but now I see that Trudeau was still sort of a young punk when he drew them
Watergate continues, Ms. Caucus gets in (finally!) to law school, etc. Last Doonesbury book for a while, I think.
I love Doonesbury and I find Trudeau's liberal humor to be really funny.
v. strange to think of joanie as grandmother
