Running from December 8th, 1980, to August 6th, 1989, Bloom County was published in an astounding 1,200 newspapers on a daily basis. The huge popularity of Bloom County spawned a merchandising bonanza, as well as two spin-off strips, Outland and Opus. The first Bloom County paperback collection, Loose Tails, sold over one million copies. Bloom County Library: Book One is the first of five editions collecting the Pulitzer Prize- and Eisner Award-winning comic strip in its entirety. The first book introduces the beloved Opus the Penguin, as well as Bill the Cat, Cutter John, Michael Binkley, Milo Bloom, Steve Dallas, and others. This volume also contains insightful commentary by Berkeley Breathed on his quirky creations. Every strip, from the very first until the last, are presented here in chronologically-you'll never have a better chance to revisit these old friends-or to discover them for the first time.
