    Never knew the Boondocks’ first strip feels the first strip of the great ones. A short but funny intro into the two main characters, Riley and Huey, and the setting of the story, Suburbia. Who’da thunk that it would literally become too popular for Aaron to keep on the print pages?

    This is his first strip as far as national newspaper debut is concerned. Apparently he did some in college, and in The Source magazine. I’d like to see those one day.

    This was a really good comic. I miss it. And wow. I can’t get over how much Aaron’s art has improved from the first strip to the last one

    I remember reading this comic when I was about 11 years old. I couldn’t believe that it had made it into a show on Adult Swim. Go Boondocks!
