Buck Wild Doonesbury: A Doonesbury Book


$ 9.95 $ 14.95

From the Bill Clinton–Ken Starr face-off to high-flying Internet start-ups, and new ways to plagiarize term papers, Garry Trudeau hones in on the things we take so seriously and livens them up with crafty jolts of jocularity in this collection from 1999, which follows Planet Doonesbury. We watch as Uncle Bernie pulls the plug on Mike and Kim's entrepreneurial venture, the virtual company that follows that rich tradition of losing money and lots of it. We sit in on a press conference with America's most famous special prosecutor who admits he spent four years "Leaking. Trolling. It's been hectic." And we behold Zonker as he passes along his long-held slacker philosophy to his young nephew Zipper. Since it appeared in 1970 as the first newspaper comic strip from Universal Press Syndicate, Garry Trudeau's Pulitzer Prize–winning Doonesbury has entertained readers with its politically aware commentary, while providing a window to the current state of the American mind. In 1975, then-president Gerald Ford quipped, "There are only three major vehicles to keep us informed as to what is going on in Washington: the electronic media, the print media, and Doonesbury, not necessarily in that order."
