We have always loved P. Opus. The end of Blon County was a tragic day. Wonder if Opus will again team up with Bill the Cat.

After "Bloom County", "Outland", "Calvin and Hobbes" and "The Far Side" no longer appeared in print, I stopped reading the comics section. They were my all time favorites. I still have the original Bloom County screen saver running on a i486. Delrina, the software company that put out the screen saver, had to remove all the Microsoft parodies because Bill Gates was not amused and threatened to sue.

That's a fat bellied stogie sucker, and them's good eatin'.
If you recall the strip where they were hunting...

I wonder if Berkeley will go back to his old method of locking himself up at home for a week until his month's supply of strips is complete?

The closest thing that I had to a real computer in the 80's was a Commodore 64. I never saw the first incarnation of the screen saver. This is the version that I am talking about:



BTW, I have two more unopened boxes of this version.
