Soon thereafter, the Exxon Educational Foundation announced a $100,000 Joanie Caucus Exxon Fellowship Program to aid women over thirty who wanted to become lawyers. When writers are lucky, they’ll occasionally create a character in whom readers become unusually vested. The downside is a tremendous pressure to treat that character gently, to not place her in jeopardy from which she cannot escape. But in Joanie’s case, I was happy to oblige, to let her survive the downdrafts and soar into a new future, becoming the kind of role model that the times seemed to demand.

Duke, alone among the main characters, arrived in the strip as straight-ahead parody. Duke wasn’t inspired by Thompson, he was Thompson—right down to the name, taken from “Raoul Duke,” Thompson’s pseudonym. Many public figures are parodied, but Thompson, who viewed writing as serious business, apparently found it unnerving to have such an unserious version of himself on the loose. He’d worked hard to become the star of his own work, and consequently viewed the HST brand as proprietary. Of course, in turning himself into a celebrity, Thompson, like all public figures, had made himself available to caricature.

It was my first and last concession to editorial balance, and I quickly subverted it. As Doonesbury opened wide and gained momentum, a supporting cast converged from all directions: Zonker, avatar of high hippie slackness; Joanie, accidental feminist; Ginny, post–civil rights era black striver; and Rev. Scot Sloan, social justice warrior. D. Mike Doonesbury Mark Slackmeyer Phil Slackmeyer Zonker Harris Barbara Ann Boopstein Nguyen Van Phred Bernie Rufus Jackson Rev.
