'Bloom County' was a comic strip full of political and social satire, authored by Berke Breathed. It graced the daily and Sunday newspapers for about 5 years. It was by far my favorite comic strip.
Some of the 'Bloom County' characters returned for a short spell in Breathed's 'Outland', but it was so wierd that it didn't have as long life - thank goodness.
Sure do miss you, Opus!
