Doonesbury Gives From The (Purple) Heart
My dad likes to pick up comic collections at garage sales (along with a great many other things) and I remember reading many a Doonesbury anthology which had seen more years then they probably had readers, but I loved them. It was a view of history I didn’t get in my junior high text books.
All the proceeds from his new collection “The Long Road Home”, chronicling the story of long time character B.D.’s recovery after he loses a leg in the Iraq war, will go to the Fisher House, a provider of housing for families of wounded troops while they heal up. No matter your views on the war, this is a noble cause.
The book is only $9.95 and I plan on picking up a copy soon. If you’re an online shopping buff you can pick it up at Amazon.
