Question about the "Outland" comic strip
My paper never got the bloom county continuation strip Outland so i'd like to know, how did bill the cat revert to being a cat again? By the end of bloom county, donald trumps brain was in his body and he bought the strip, ending the bloom county strip as we know it. However, IIRC, bill showed up later in the strip in his older form, what happened exactly?
It was never explained. Outland just gradually turned back into Bloom County and the fanciful world introduced in the beginning was retconned away.

I find it interesting that Breathed's original goal with "Outland" was to come up with something completely different from "Bloom County", then almost immediately went in the complete opposite direction and basically turned it into a "Bloom County" sequel. I'm not sure why he caved so quickly. (Although in the long run, I'm kinda glad he did - Opus and Bill are much funnier than Mortimer Mouse and Tim W. Forty ever were.)
You guys read "Opus" every Sunday, right? I do occasionally, although I have to get an Oregonian because the Statesman Journal is skimpy on Sunday comics.
I don't understand Breathed sometimes. In one book he implies that returning to old territory is somewhat inevitable, yet in another book he says that changes in his strips are natural for him.
