What the hell has happened to Zonker? Here is a man who drifted through life until society allowed him to find his true calling. He is a rebuttal in human form to every jackass who calls poor people "lazy" when it is society's own ignorant BS that puts barriers in front of people's lives by denying them the right to a higher education and a living wage. So now Zipper seeks his way to success and fulfillment and Zonker starts preaching about work ethic. Really? Surely Zonker knows better than most people that we all have it within us to be focussed and ''hard working" if we are given the tools and a clear path by society to do the thing we were born to do.

Re Alex's recent reappearance: Garry, how your fans are missing your daily strips! We will welcome them back: any time, on every topic, with every character (old and new).

Your Sunday strip back on February 21st, 2016 had Rev. Sloan, B.D., and Boopsie giving DJT one out of seven for avoiding deadly sins. After a year of his low-energy performance, I think we can now mark that as zero. I can't think of a lazier person who achieved high office.

The return of Alex (plus one) reminds us that GBT has pulled off a rarity as a widely-circulated syndicated cartoonist with a Sunday-only obligation. It also reminds us that, along with readers, the side-characters aren't "getting the memo" either and are even more bit players than they were pre-sabbatical-or-whatever-this-is. Alas, finally it reminds us that Doonesbury has become a weekly Trump newsletter of sorts -- of the bad-publicity variety.

The Flashback page's 40-years-ago-today strip makes me wonder whatever happened to Ellie and Howie. I like to imagine that they ended up getting married, but they’re currently undergoing some marital strife since he started wearing a MAGA hat and she a pussy hat.

Very sweet comic today. Quite lovely. More like this, please!

Zonker was right all along about talking with plants.

It was very smart of Roland today to nail Trudeau ("Old 1990 comic conceded Trump best delegator even then!") for reversing his standards on Trump. These comic strip writers have to be held to account for all their past comments. No one is ever allowed to change what they say, except for Donald.

M.M., and now Stormy, could be Boswells to Trump's Johnson.

Brian Harvey | Berkeley, CA | February 01, 2018

Since we only see MM from the back, I keep thinking she's Zonker!

Re: "Today's Honey strip reminds me of the time she told Chairman Mao that the Great Wall had been completely disassembled and then rebuilt in a day. Our administration needs people like this." Actually, I think this administration is already well-stocked with shameless liars...

Re today's Today's Video: Before diving into every day's bad news cycle, I suggest y'all start your day with "Uptown Funk." Yeah!

Unscripted Donald was so much more articulate Back In The Day. Sad.

Susan Rockwell | Interlachen, FL | January 29, 2018

Just recently I was wondering how long it had been since we saw Honey Huan. Sunday's strip made my day.

Kerry Killingsworth | Auburn, AL | January 28, 2018

Today's Honey strip reminds me of the time she told Chairman Mao that the Great Wall had been completely disassembled and then rebuilt in a day. Our administration needs people like this.

I'm so glad that after all these years of blind dedication to Duke, in this Sunday's strip Honey now has a bureaucratic position, making use of her considerable talents. Too bad she had to return to China to find her niche. We could have used her.

Nikki Longaker | Binghamton, NY | January 28, 2018

Has this older, wiser Honey finally outgrown her passion for Duke -- or is she still susceptible? And might he have a place in the Trump administration?

Patti H. | Rome, NY | January 28, 2018

Okay, can I be the first to say it? Holy Heck! When was the last time we saw Honey? Did we know she was back in China? What a great way and appropriate time to bring her back.

I wish we had on this side of the Atlantic commentators and cartoonists with your wit and acuity -- half as much would do. Your facility for the mot juste never ceases to amaze me.

Julia | Adelaide, AUSTRALIA | January 27, 2018

The growing convergence between The Strip and the media reports of the President's words is disheartening. Eventually the two must collide in some kind of Doomsday cataclysm.
