No More Doonesbury For 'A Year Or Two' From Gary Trudeau

doonesburyGary Trudeau is taking an extended sabbatical from the weekly Doonesbury strip to work on the second season of his Amazon-broadcast TV show, Alpha House.

The sabbatical is long term and open ended but he states "A hiatus comes with uncertainty, of course: I can't assume I'll be welcomed back a year or two from now."

He took another sabbatical when launching the show but this is a longer arrangement.

However, Trudeau will continue creating the Sunday versions of the strip, the weekly strip being replaced by reruns.
