Doonesbury character to become amputee after Iraq injury

Doonesbury‘s D.B. will lose a leg in the comic strip this week following an injury the character incurred while fighting in Iraq:

“Doonesbury” creator Garry Trudeau said he wanted to illustrate the sacrifices American soldiers are making.

“It’s a task any writer should approach with great humility, but I think it’s worth doing,” Trudeau said. “We are at war, and we can’t lose sight of the hardships war inflicts on individual lives.”
