The very first Doonesbury comic strip was published 40 years ago today. A new retrospective is out (and is on my Amazon wishlist, should anyone want to know).
Here's the very first (non-Yale) strip, published on this day in 1970:
Sorry it's so small. But look at those babyfaces! And how strange a feeling to know so much of what they have yet to experience. B.D. and Mike seem as real to me as a lot of people I actually know, and more real that some.
A Doonesbury timeline, where you can see this strip and others in a more readable size, can be found here.
