Berkeley Breathed interview

December 16, 2009

I think “Bloom County” was a truly brilliant strip and Opus is one of the great cartoon characters of recent decades. The new hardcover editions of the strip from IDW Press are not just incredibly well-designed and well-produced hardcover volumes, but it’s one of the great comic strips.

Breathed has also written a novel which is just out. Ostensibly for young readers, it’s a love story between a girl and a dog and speaking as an incredibly unsentimental person, it’s a brutal book but also deeply touching.
