'Doonesbury' Comic Taking a 12-Week Break Starting This Month

'Doonesbury' Comic Taking a 12-Week Break Starting This Month: "'Doonesbury' cartoonist Garry Trudeau will be taking a 12-week vacation from his comic, Universal Press Syndicate announced this afternoon.

'It has been 16 years since Garry Trudeau took an extended leave from 'Doonesbury,'' said Universal President Lee Salem in a statement. 'He has requested another break -- well-deserved in my mind -- to work on other projects, travel, and regenerate a few creative cells.'

Salem added that the break will last from Sunday, March 23, to Monday, June 16, and that Trudeau 'looks forward to resuming the strip before the two major political conventions and the general election.'"
