    Apparently he's reviving "Bloom County"...again. (also, I did not know that Breathed is a southpaw)

    I would like to announce that I'm fine with this.

    I'm assuming it's a webcomic? I had no idea he was a lefty either. 35 years and no one knew. Yes, I did watch him sign my book. I guess I wasn't paying attention.

    I need to check out his Facebook anyway just to see what he makes of this whole "Go Set A Watchman" thing. He's gotta be in tears over what happened to Atticus. Maybe that's what drove him to seek out a form of public commentary again.

    LOL, I've missed the deadpan snark of Milo so much. It hasn't been that long since we last saw Opus, but for Milo it really has been 25 years.

    "I suspect Bloom County came back for this one joke alone," said the top Facebook commenter. Took the words out of my mouth.

    According to Berke Cutter John is the same age here, but his hair turned white as a result of serving in Bush's war.

    Interesting that Opus still has the line between his eyes, guess Berke got used to that. Also, since they say that Opus was out for 25 years, i wonder if that means any of the continuity from Outland or Opus still counts. We'll know if we see Lola, Steve, or Ronald-Ann.

    Wow, didn't see this coming. Let's hope he rips Trump a new one again- now is a good time. Also, "Go Set A Watchman" sounds like nonsense- what the hell is it? (I think they meant "Go Get Your Walkman".)

    Given that Bloom County ended a few months before I was old enough to follow daily newspaper comics with some regularity, getting the chance to wake up to new BCs in the digital age has been a true joy. Thanks, Berke.

    You know, i think its time to explain whatever happened to Trump's brain being in Bill's body. Its a plot point that just disappeared and i'd like to know what happened to it (on a side note, if Trump somehow becomes president, those trump in bill's body strips are going to be a LOT more funnier).

    For those who look for his rare appearances, Berke will be interviewed on NPR's "Fresh Air" tonight.

    Here's something I just found out: Berke separated from Jody three years ago, and got remarried three months ago.

    It's a good guess this new "Cozy" character is based on his second wife. I'm also assuming we'll never see Lola again. : (
