Missed It: Garry Trudeau Keeps Doonesbury In Partial Hiatus

I completely missed this story from late last week about Garry Trudeau's decision to keep the legendary newspaper strip Doonesbury in partial hiatus (meaning no dailies) while he continues to work on his Amazon Prime series Alpha House. The strip was on full hiatus this summer, a time during which it would have been lovely to hear what Trudeau had to say about one or two of the season's pressing issues. Trudeau's at an age where just about decision to do something else -- even for a little while -- seems totally reasonable but also makes you wonder after the longer-term future of the strip.

Sunday will have started yesterday, and dailies are schedule to resume in November.
