Bloom County: How ya doin', Blobbo?

There's so much funny in this Bloom County rerun that I hardly know where to begin. But let's run it down:
  1. Opus in prison garb.
  2. "How ya doin', Blobbo?"
  3. "A drug crazed 'Hell's Angel' ate my mattress."
  4. "The homosexual gang war in the weight room."
  5. All of the dialog, really.
  6. The tension slowly building in the first three panels.
  7. The tonal shift in the final panel when Opus finally snaps.
  8. The sign declaring that there is to be no kissing.
There's still a lot of Bloom County that I haven't read. I should endeavor to correct that.

  1. The entire run of Bloom County is pretty hilarious, at times achieving a Doonesbury-like level of political insight. Although the last year or so was a bit shaky, and in my opinion, nothing Breathed has done since (even using the same characters) has been as good.
