Berkeley Breathed comic
Collecting every strip from December 8, 1980, through December 31, 1981, in chronological order, with a new cover insert by Breathed. 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 app. 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. The Bloom County Library is the latest offering in IDW Publishing's series of Digital Graphic Novels. We've assembled the best of favorite brands and respected creators for you to collect on your digital bookshelf.
It's Berkeley Breathed's final spin around the dance floor with his most quirky and endearing character-Opus. The Pleasant penguin has long been the moral center of the Berkley-verse, and nowhere is that as abundantly clear as in his own self-named book. Aside from our waddling friend, this book contains numerous characters readers will fondly remember from the days of Bloom County. This volume collects the entire run of Berkeley Breathed's Opus, from first to last, and features an introduction and running commentary from Breathed.
Specially formatted digital edition! Berkeley Breathed, the mad genius who boggled and bewildered us with "Bloom County", is back! Soon after retiring "Bloom County" - and at the peak of its popularity - Breathed returned with an all-new Sunday-only newspaper strip: "Outland". Debuting just four weeks after the final "Bloom County" was published, and with many of the same cast members, "Outland" continues on in the same traditions set forth by its forebears - ranging from delightful whimsy to raging satire! This volume contains every "Outland" strip published, some never-before-collected in book form, and nearly all have been scanned from the original art, provided by Breathed from his personal archives. It includes more than 280 Sunday pages, all in fully remastered color, from September 3, 1989 through March 26, 1995.
A treasure-trove of Berkeley Breathed’s pre-Bloom County archives, artwork, strips, political cartoons, and much more!
