Specially formatted digital edition! Collecting every strip from January 1, 1983, through December 31, 1983, in chronological order. Berkeley Breathed’s Bloom County burst onto the American comic scene in December 1980 and it soon became one of the most popular comic strips of all time. The endearing and quirky denizens of the strip included Milo Bloom, Steve Dallas, Michael Binkley, Cutter John, Bill the Cat, and Opus the Penguin. Bloom County was a strip that dealt with many issues relevant to the period. Occasional “Context comments” are added throughout this collection, giving the reader a greater understanding of the time. This is the first time Bloom County has been collected in a digital library. IDW will add more volumes, one year per volume. Each newspaper strip is reproduced in chronological order from first to last. Great effort has been made to ensure the highest production values are achieved.
Always witty and true!
I remember the first time I read a Bloom County collection. My mom was going through her old books and I picked up "penguin dreams and stranger things" and have yet to stop reading. I bought each collection as it came out and still read them between endless studying for my political science major. Yes Breathed I blame you on that one(and thank you too)
This is some of the best satire regarding the 1980s that exists, and clearly the best involving a talking penguin and a drug-addicted cat. Waaaay better than SNL at the time (and probably now), and oddly prescient. Please release the final two volumes for all the Bloom County fans out there, like me!!!
