Because, I just found out. And I am now more excited than I have been in a long time (about something that I expect to enjoy fully clothed).

He's not working for newspapers anymore. He's publishing directly to his Facebook page. I just read the 4 he's done since last week, so it's faster than a trickle.

Well the timing is right. There is enough material today that it could write itself.

Would that Watterson might get inspired to do the same.

I had the T-shirt on the right.



For those not old enough to remember, Bill the Cat was Bloom County's answer to Garfield. Garfield was really big at the time and had become extremely commercial so Berke Breathed brought in Bill the Cat as a satire on Garfield. The joke was he was trying to rip off Garfield but unfortunately the best cat he could get for his comic strip was this drunk hairball tossing Bill the Cat (there was a whole week where the theme of Bloom County was this series of auditions of very bad cats). In the end Bill became a major character in the strip where he was killed off, cloned and even ran for President.

Remember back when the internet was young and people would make crappy websites about things they loved on angelfire or whatever free hosting came with their isp? Yeah, mine was a Bloom County website. So happy about this news the past week!

And yes, it still exists. I checked a couple days ago.

Are these published anywhere else? Facebook seems like a horrible way to read them.

I was first introduced to Bloom County through a local dial-up BBS named "Milo's Meadow" in the pre-web days.

He has a website: http://berkeleybreathed.com/ but it looks like that's how he's going for now. Opus did post on Twitter a few days ago.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.
