Doonesbury: The War Within: One More Step at a Time by G.B. Trudeau is the second graphic novel in Trudeau’s “Wounded Warrior” three-book series. This is an amazing graphic novel that enables the reader to empathize with B.D., Boobsie and their daughter while they struggle to try to recoup a normal life after B.D. loses one of his legs in an RPG attack in Iraq. The Long Road Home: One Step at a Time, the first book in this series, covered his physical traumas including numerous surgeries. This b ...more

G.B. Trudeau does it again, bringing humor, wit, and, above all, deep insight into the life of post-war veterans with this sequel to his first installment.

Once again, we follow B.D., who has since returned home to a relatively normal life with a prosthetic leg after being wounded in battle. We learn that though his physical injuries may have healed, the emotional injuries have just started to surface, as B.D. is diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) but refuses to acknowledge that

Garry Trudeau's "Doonesbury" strip is among the most prolific and engaging comics in American history. Anything that has run as long as this feature is bound to blow hot and cold at different times. To this reality, Trudeau wisely released two volumes central to the hell of war and the pain of recovery as seen through the experiences of his original character B.D. ("The Long Road Home" and "The War Within".) These collections run the gauntlet from injury to the first steps of rehabilitation with ...more

I couldn't stop laughing -- I wanted to read it all aloud to my family, but wanted to let them read it and enjoy themselves as well. It is clear that G.B. Trudeau hasn't been there, but also clear that he understands as well as anybody possibly can who hasn't walked that path himself.

For me this second book in the Wounded Warrior series struck me the hardest. While there is humor, there is also the painful topics that BD must remember but "edit" in order to make his adjustment to coming back home. A very powerful series.
