Doonesbury Joins Slate Magazine

May 27, 2003, the Web site and home of the comic strip Doonesbury will now be available exclusively in Slate, the online magazine, forming a union between the satire of Garry Trudeau and Slate's opinion journalism. Under a new agreement among Slate,, and digital comics provider uclick, the 7-year-old Web site becomes part of Slate Magazine. Daily Doonesbury comic strips will be posted on the site, as well as a daily "SayWhat?" quote, a daily news feed, a weekly Straw Poll, "GBT's FAQs," and a 12-month searchable strip archive. Other site features include Doonesbury puzzles, the Castmaster trivia quiz, and a cryptic "Ask Duke" feature. Already running editorial cartoons that reflect various perspectives of the war and politics, Doonesbury adds another view to Slate.
