Tracking the D'bury Universe

We won't post new stories on this page every day, but whenever we do put something up you have our word: It will be about the strip. Guaranteed.

    We should invest in effective education rather than ineffective arrest and incarceration. Our marijuana laws are clearly doing more harm than good. The criminalization of marijuana did not prevent marijuana from becoming the most widely used illegal substance in the United States and many other countries. But it did result in extensive costs and negative consequences...

  • The Art of Garry Trudeau

    Brian Walker, Slate | October 26, 2010

    I have long felt that Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau hasn't received adequate recognition for his talents as an artist and graphic designer. His strip, which earned a reputation for being poorly drawn in its early days, has been one of the most graphically innovative strips on the comics pages since the mid-'80s. And Garry's art has never been confined to the strip. In 1983, I curated the Doonesbury Retrospective at the Museum of Cartoon Art. While researching this exhibition, I had seen illustrations, sketches, and designs Garry had done for special projects. I knew there was a wealth of other material waiting to be uncovered. So in 2008, I suggested to Garry that we do a book on the art of Doonesbury and, after getting his approval, sent a proposal to Yale University Press...

  • Predator's Ball

    Katrina vanden Heuvel, Washington Post | October 20, 2010

    "Apres nous, le deluge." Surely the reactionary gang of five on the Supreme Court should have cited Louis XV in their Citizens United decision overturning precedent to open the floodgates to corporate campaign spending...

  • Return of the Secret Donors

    Jill Abramson, New York Times | October 20, 2010

    To old political hands, wise to the ways of candidates and money, 1972 was a watershed year. Richard M. Nixon’s re-election campaign was awash in cash, secretly donated by corporations and individuals...

  • Oil Disaster Spreads

    Rocky Kistner, NRDC | October 20, 2010

    For six months, I have lived and worked near ground zero of the worst oil disaster in US history. I've traveled on boats hunting thick, reddish peanut butter-colored crude that slowly washed towards the coastal marshes of southern Louisiana. I watched tough, resourceful people of the bayou weep at the sight of the oily tide invading precious fishing grounds...

  • Zonker on Atlantic Cover

    Garry Trudeau | October 20, 2010

    Forty years after the comic strip began, its commune-dwelling characters—Mike, Zonker, B.D., Joanie, and the rest—have moved on to Boomer adulthood. Their evolution offers a telling chronicle of the past four decades, and what it felt like to live through them...

  • Doonesbury Through the Ages

    Urvi Nopany | October 20, 2010

    G.B. Trudeau’s 40-year legacy of hard-hitting truths, sugar-coated with just enough laughter to make them palatable, is all the more awe-inspiring when viewed as a collection, in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library’s “Doonesbury in a Time of War” exhibition...

  • Dbury @ 50

    Brian Bingman, Montgomery Media | November 12, 2018

    How is "the Time of Trump" going to end?

    "In ignomy. It's just a question of when. He'll never shake all the investigations. Once out of office, he'll spend the rest of his life in legal jeopardy, if not prison. History will be even less kind."...
