Berkeley Breathed Officially Announces More "Bloom County" via New Comic Strip

After 25 years, Berkeley Breathed is returning to his Pulitzer Prize-winning comic strip, "Bloom County." Breathed announced the new incarnation of the politically-minded strip via a post on his Facebook, which featured the new comic strip he had been seen working on in a previous post.

"Bloom County" originally ran from December 1980 until 1989, just two years after he won the Pulitzer. The characters, such as Bill the Cat, Opus the Penguin, Hodge-Podge the Rabbit, Milo Bloom, and Cutter John, lived on in the Sunday-only strip "Outland" from 1989 to 1995, as well as "Opus" from 2003 to 2008. When "Opus'" run ended, Breathed said he was stepping away from strips entirely and began focusing on writing children's books. At the time, he said the political climate in the country had grown too bitter for him to continue taking a light tone on things, and he wanted to get out before things got too tough.

No release date for the new "Bloom County" has been revealed at this time.
