Trudeaufreude

Mwahahaha.....Udolpho hits "Garry" right in the chest with both barrels.

First shell:

His sensibility evokes NPR at its most earnest, a very mannered "isn't that obvious?" conformity that embodies the editorial we. There is real wit at work here sometimes even a joke with a punchline but it's so plainly self-blind that after a few strips it starts to wear thin.

Second shell:

The main weakness aside from Trudeau's insularity is of course the Trudeau drawing hand. Or claw, as one imagines it to be from the evidence of the crummy, inflexible stylization Trudeau leans on for the Doonesbury look.

Ouch. Go read the rest. It pretty much covers what I've thought of Doonesbury for years.

Yips! to Ace.

the strip got tedious and I gave it up many years ago.
