Good post about B.D. losing his leg in "Doonesbury", by the author of a web comic, "The Queen of Wands"( strip that I'll be checking out more regularly). I agree that this is an interesting choice for Trudeau (Via Flutterby. This creates a shift in the little world of the strip that demonstrates that he is not afraid of continuing to be creative. One of the ways that daily strips run out of steam is that they don't take this sort of chance more often. It is boredom more than exhaustion that creates comics writer burnout.

I love comics for a lot of reasons, and the iconography of it all is a big part. I believe that this is the first time we have seen B.D. without his helmet.
