    1. This is a plain hardcover with no dust jacket. There's an introduction by George Wills, and a preface by the author. This collection starts with what must have been the very first of the cartoons published in the Yale college newspaper. The end is a group of color cartoons, probably Sunday strips from different times.The small collections this book anthologizes were of a size that they often went astray. Collecting them into a larger book makes them more easily curatable.I've tried to read Doone [...]


    2. i was probably about 10 when i first read him, 11 when i bought this book, a fan ever since. many jokes of course were beyond me, but the fictional family of walden puddle commune is a place i like to revisit every few years when one of these larger format collections is published.



    3. This 1975 Doonesbury compilation -- selected from the strip's first years (1970-75) -- took me 16 months to read because I couldn't get excited about it as entertainment or as anthropological time travel. Trudeau's jokes and voice haven't aged well in the same way that I imagine the voices and jokes of the friends on Friends won't age well -- something too cute and self-ritualizing about the way they talk and formulate sarcasm, something monolithic about their back-and-forths that disrupts the i [...]


    4. Years ago, after getting my daily fix of 'calvin & hobbes', and needing to avoid doing my job for a few more minutes, i'd usually read doonesbury, be bored with it, and wonder why, as a progressive, i felt somehow obligated to appreciate it. then i'd usually move on to wonder who the fuck was left on earth who finds 'family circus' or 'little orphan annie' entertaining, how much power they must have, and a chill would penetrate my very bones.was i not giving doonesbury a chance?so, to correc [...]


    5. I'm a huge fan of comic strips in general, so it's curious to me that I've never been able to get into "Doonesbury." Occasionally, I would catch the strip in the newspaper, but I never connected to the characters and never found any sort of narrative to latch on to.This book, which collects the earliest years of the strip, has helped me piece together the mystery. I love character-driven strips, and I can appreciate political cartoons, but Trudeau could never fully commit to either. Very often, [...]


    6. A collection of all the books from day one and includes a lot of books I don't have like: I Have No Son; Call Me When You Find America; Guilty Guilty Guilty; What Do We Have For The Witnesses;Dare To Be Great Ms Caucus; Wouldn't A Gremlin Have Been More Sensible etc. Seen in chronological order starting with the Nixon administration and the Vietnam war and what becomes very apparent is.history repeats itself. How very depressing. Also, portents of things to comeayers and repercussions and signs [...]


    7. Les débuts de cette B.D. américaine qui, depuis 1970, colle à l'actualité d'une façon étonnante. Parfois cynique, parfois burlesque, l'auteur parvient toujours à se renouveler, de Nixon à Bush, de la Chine de Mao jusqu'aux cavernes de l'Afghanistan, entre le féminisme des années 1970 et les écologistes des années 2000 Si vous lisez les plus anciens livres, comme celui-ci, c'est une leçon d'histoire. Si vous lisez les plus récents, c'est une leçon de science politique.


    8. I used to own dozens of the small format collections but over the years I actually donated them to a rummage sale and bought the larger collections. I loaned my copy of this to a friend and it was never returned. I have replaced it a few years ago and enjoyed the reading all the early days of Doonesbury.


    9. Recently re-read when I was feeling nostalgic. Most everyone I've cared for in this world lived through the events in this collection as adults, and read this strip daily. First one read on the comics page, in fact. Certainly the one most talked-about.Many of those kind souls are gone, now.I was truly born a decade too late.


    10. My sister gave me this anthology and the other Doonesbury book I have. This would have been circa 1981. I loved these books at the time. I thought this strip was the most innovative thing ever. Of course, Trudeau changed after a while and his liberal stuff really turned me off.This is his classic work, however, and well worth the time to explore Walden Puddle.


    11. If it has one star I liked it a lot If it has two stars I liked it a lot and would recommend itIf it has three stars I really really liked it a lot If it has four stars I insist you read it If it has five stars it was life changing


    12. A collection of the first couple years of Doonesbury comic strips. This collection is not inclusive and skips over some comics and story archs. It does include lots of the Nixon strips and also a cameo by current VP Joe Biden.


    13. My oldest friend, Doug, loaned this to me in junior high school. It was only my second exposure to political cartoons and satire. At that point I was old enough to understand both subjects. Doonsbury expanded and changed my attitudes on politics and American culture.




    14. As a teen in the 80s, I'd sit and read this over and over while listening to Neil Young's Decadeat about sums me up.


    15. These are the strips written before Iwas born so it was great to see all the first appearances of time-honored characters.
