Specially formatted digital editions! Collecting every strip in chronological order! Berkeley Breathed’s Bloom County burst onto the American comic scene in December 1980 and it soon became one of the most popular comic strips of all time. The endearing and quirky denizens of the strip included Milo Bloom, Steve Dallas, Michael Binkley, Cutter John, Bill the Cat, and Opus the Penguin. Bloom County was a strip that dealt with many issues relevant to the period. Occasional “Context comments” are added throughout the collections, giving the reader a greater understanding of the time. This is the first time Bloom County has been collected in a digital library, one year per digital volume. Each newspaper strip is reproduced in chronological order from first to last.
