696 Doonesbury pages!
Weighs over 10 lbs. !

Packs four decades of cartoonist Garry Trudeau's subversive genius into an oversize, 695-page hardcover. What else is guaranteed to make you think, feel nostalgic, and laugh out loud at least once a page?"? -(Karen Holt, O Magazine)
"For millions of readers, Trudeau's lacerating comic strip -- launched in 1970 as a campus doodle called Bull Tales -- has helped make tolerable some of the past four decades' most stupefying political outrages. Perhaps because it doesn't dote on Trudeau's beltway hobbyhorses, this gorgeously produced anniversary set -- compiling 2,000 or so of the 14,000 strips in Doonesbury 's still-thriving run -- cuts closer to the core of modern American experience." -(John McAlley, NPR)
"Garry Trudeau's "Doonesbury" turns 40 this month. To call it satire is only half right. "Doonesbury" has taken on all the topics you'd expect-from Vietnam to Iraq, from drug use to gay marriage. But satire has a short shelf life. "Doonesbury"?'s big heart and moral compass are what give it staying power." -( Cullen Murphy, Vanity Fair)
"It's no exaggeration to say that Trudeau revolutionized the funny pages, creating a space where reactionaries and radicals alike squabble over the issues of the day." -( Chip Kidd , Rolling Stone)
"Massive Doonesbury Retrospective Worth It: 700-page 40th anniversary 'Doonesbury' retrospective well worth the investment...If this one simply was an anthology, it probably still would be worth the three-digit retail price, but Trudeau's musings on his creation and the other cool extras put 40: A Doonesbury Retrospective squarely into must-have territory." - (Mike Householder, Associated Press)
"The sprawling cast of G.B. Trudeau's Doonesbury comic--Mike, B.D., Boopsie, their friends and, increasingly, children--have been the pen-and-ink Zeligs of the baby-boomer era and beyond. Four decades on, this volume has the heft and warmth of a favorite family album." -(Time Magazine)

"This is the perfect gift for anyone who is half-decent in any way. How could anybody not want it? ... Mr. Trudeau has become perhaps our nation's most important real-time historian; playing a role in sanity-saving not unlike Jon Stewart but not only before his time, but for four straight decades..." -(Eric Alterman, The Nation, Altercation Gift-Giving Guide)
'As one thumbs through the book - which Trudeau edited by culling more than 14,000 strips - it is near-impossible not to be struck anew by the weight of the comic's achievement in storytelling: Beyond the biting politics and topical commentary, "Doonesbury" at 40 reads like a novel told one poignant punch line at a time. As if by stringing together four decades of one-a-day calendars, the cumulative effect was Joyce.' - (Michael Cavna, The Washington Post)
'Doonesbury has been loved and hated because it has candidly and often hilariously skewered social mores and politics. Thanks to a crew of lovable, dynamic if not always clearheaded characters, Doonesbury is still a vital part of the national discussion.' -(Dan Lybarger, Huffington Post)
Doonesbury is certainly one of the greatest comic strips ever; as this collection proves, it's also one of the greatest pieces of serialized, topical fiction ever produced by an American. - (Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly)

Trudeau has just kept improving, year after year, in part because he stays so close to changing events... A great modern American history course could be taught using this volume of collected strips, stretching from Watergate to Afghanistan. - (Garry Wills, The New York Review of Books)
Trudeau's creation, which started as a jokey commentary on campus life at Yale, has evolved into a sprawling masterwork with a cast of characters big enough to make Tolstoy wonder if he was trying hard enough. -(John Schwartz, New York Times)
