Indexer Notes

Collection of daily and Sunday newspaper strips (Sundays in color on glossy paper). Notable story arcs include: Boopsie is an alternate on the O.J. Simpson jury; Duke learns that Earl is his son; J.J. leaves Mike to run off with Zeke; Bernie hires Mike, who moves to Seattle with Alex; Mike and Kim fall in love; O.J. Simpson goes door to door looking for the "real" killer.

Garry Trudeau acknowledged employing Don Carlton as inker of Doonesbury (Alter 1990). Carlton’s association with Trudeau began in the early 1970s, and his responsibilities grew to include lettering of the strip. The association endured for decades (Walker 2010, 30–31).

The credit for colors by Trudeau is disputed.
