<p>My favorite comic strip while growing up was <i>Bloom County</i>. The exploits of Opus, Milo, Portnoy, Hodge-Podge, Steve Dallas and of course (the response to Garfield) Bill the Cat. Unfortunately, in 1989, Berkely Breathed, the Pulitzer Prize winning author discontinued the strip as he was getting burned out. (This is similar with what happened to my second favorite strip, <i>Calvin and Hobbes</i>)</p><p>Nevertheless, I have periodically pulled his collections off the shelf and re-read them, each time discovering another layer of humor or story that I originally missed. (Many of the strips had a political angle that flew over my head the first time. I was 10.) Imagine my joy when my sister, Deirdre, shows me <a href="http://customwire.ap.org/dynamic/stories/C/COMICS_OPUS?SITE=TNCOO&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT"> this</a>.</p><p>Thank you, Deirdre for making my day.</p><p>For those of you who have never seen Bloom County, here is a sample:<br />
<a href="http://www.chrisboylan.com/blog/outland_full.html" onclick="window.open('http://www.chrisboylan.com/blog/outland_full.html','popup','width=744,height=515,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0'); return false"><img src="http://www.chrisboylan.com/blog/outland_full.jpg" height="332" width="480"><br>View image</a><br />
This actually comes from <i>Outland</i>, his Sunday only strip that continued where <i>Bloom County</i> left off. You can see more of his work at <a href="http://www.berkeleybreathed.com">BerkeleyBreathed.com</a>.</p><p>P.S. You can check out <a href="http://lildatqc.blogspot.com">Deirdre's Blog</a> too. Thanks for the solid.</p>
