Man, what a bummer. Bloom County, Outland, and Opus creator, Berkeley Breathed announced that he will be retiring from cartooning. His last OPUS strip will be November 2, 2008.
I grew up with Opus. Him, and Milo, and Binkley, and Bill, Portnoy and Steve Dallas… and…. milktoast.
There is a way for fans like me to be involved
This Sunday’s strip will include a contest in which Breathed asks readers to guess the penguin’s fate. Details on how to participate are not being released ahead of time.
So go to BerkelyBreathed.com and see what’s going on with Opus.
