Author: [Original Comic Art] Trudeau, Gary
Title: DOONESBURY. Original Art for Daily Newspaper Strip, Feb. 2, 1979
Place Published:
Publisher:
Date Published: 1979
Description:


Ink and Zip-a-Tone on bristol, image area approx. 4.5" x 14.5". Signed by Trudeau. Dated "2/2" with 1979 copyright notice. Excellent condition, light waving and edge toning.



Trudeau deals with the continuing fallout from the Vietnam War in this daily strip featuring Nguyen van Phred, Vietnam's delegate to the U.N., who earlier in the strip was a Viet Cong "terrorist". Doonesbury, with its pot-smoking hero Zonker Harris and ongoing critique of U.S. policies, came as close to the underground sensibility as the mainstream press allowed.
