As promised, a new Bloom County comic strip is up—as promised, on Facebook of all places. Creator Berke Breathed announced the return during SDCC, and a lot of 90s kids are over the moon with this. The strip is appearing in a Sunday color format. On subsequent FB posts, Breathed has explained that Opus was jamming to “Thankful” by Glen Phillips, and so with this interactive method, he’as actualy emulating the most popular webcomics. Full circle!
Anyway welcome back, Opus! It wasn’t the same without you.
