A collection of Doonesbury comic strips featuring the Hunter S. Thompson inspired Uncle Duke. I've never been a huge Doonesbury fan, but as a Thompson fan I have always enjoyed Uncle Duke's adventures. I'm not sure if they sell it anymore, but when I purchased this book upon publication it came with an actual Uncle Duke Action Figure, which I still have somewhere. If you can get Action Figure with the action figure included, it's definitely worth the purchase.

Here's the thing, I remember loving Doonsebury growing up, even though I only understood about a third of it. In high school, it was my primary source of political rhetoric until I took a government class my senior year. And while I still enjoy it, and it still holds up (as long as you realize the time the strips were originally printed, which this collection shows).

I guess my main problem is how much Uncle Duke is an unfair parody of Hunter S. Thompson. At the start, Duke is a writer for Rolling Stone who stays stoned most of the time and even lives on a property called Owl Farm. Trudeau has given us his own interpretation of Raoul Duke, and it's painful to read at times.

This isn't the only parody figure we get in Duke's collected strips. There is also a ghost writer who looks exactly like Kurt Vonnegut (so much so that his introduction in the strip looks exactly like Kurt's first scene in the Rodney Dangerfield film Back to School) and Miss Huan, "Honey" as Duke calls her, is a dead ringer for Marcy from Peanuts. She even acts as the Marcy to Duke's Peppermint Patty, complete with the "sirs."

Overall, an enjoyable collection, but it was hard not to see Hunter in Duke and be a little annoyed by what Trudeau had him doing (especially as Trump's ship captain *shudder*). ( )
