Yep, all of this week’s strips are from 1974, the year Garry Trudeau found his voice and unleashed his satiric fury against those monsters in Washington, DC! He skewered hypocrisy, mocked the pompous, and, oh, yeah, agitated for the removal of cor(R)upt public officials. For his artistic brio and his keen-as-a-scalpel satire, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning, the first ever so bestowed.
— but, regardless, we want to take a moment to recognize his achievement. We know he’s been awfully busy the past couple decades, but we wanted to honor the work he’s done and the brilliant Torch of Truth he so proudly waved at Republicans everywhere.
And what better way to do that than to repurpose some of his finest work from that august year and apply it to today’s corrupt, pompous hypocrites in the “Truesbury” strips this week?
No need to thank us, Comrade, we’re doing it for the good of everyone.
