One Shot – YUGE! 30 Years of Doonesbury on Trump
3 days ago
In this HUGE mini-episode, Curt and Kevin take a break from passing judgment on comic book stories and turn their attention to the upcoming presidential election with a QUALITY discussion of YUGE! 30 Years of Doonesbury on Trump, a collection of Doonesbury comic strips by Garry Trudeau. It's a first-class episode, people, mark my words, okay? First class!
Things Discussed in This Episode: The difficulty of the Doonesbury elevator pitch; Trump's changing appearance in the strip over the decades; and Curt’s plea for Trudeau to return to daily strips.
(Things NOT discussed in this episode include the now-infamous Donald Trump/Billy Bush video, which was released after this episode was recorded. SAD!).
You know what’s not sad? The Comics Canon returns in one short week! We prepare ourselves for the upcoming release of Doctor Strange with a look at the Sorcerer Supreme’s early days via Strange Tales #115, 126-127, and 139-141.
