I have long been a Bloom County fan, so it's no surprise that I had a great time reading this collection of the strips. Now I need to track down the rest of the collections, so I can re-read the whole run :) ( )

Bloom County BRILLIANCE!

Good stuff! This collection is from the last years of the Bloom County syndicated comic strip, selected story-lines and strips from its mid-80s peak right up to the last panel created for Bloom County.

I bought a copy of this book in 1991, I loved Bloom County and thought it was one of the best, freshest and most entertaining comic strips I had ever read. I still have the book and reread it every year or so and I can honestly say I still enjoy it as much as the first time I ever picked it up. True... some of the references are terribly dated, and don't have the same punch they once did but the same thing could be said about a lot of us.

I recommend Bloom County (this edition or any other) for anyone who likes irreverent and silly humor. ( )

The 1980s chronicled by a satirist who was liberal in politics and conservative in heart. ( )

Although some of the cartoons are dated due mostly to political and entertainment themes, much of the humor from Opus, Steve Dallas, Michael Binkley, Cutter John, Milo Bloom, Bill The Cat, Hodge-Podge, Portnoy and many other characters is timeless and holds up well today. ( )
