Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From one of the funniest minds — and pens — of our time, at last, the definitive collection of the very best of Opus, everyones favorite maladjusted penguin.

One of America's most beloved comic geniuses is back, with this collectible 25th anniversary compendium of the best of Opus, joined by his hilarious supporting cast, including Binkley, Milo, Bill the Cat, Steve Dallas, Ronald Ann, and the rest of the residents of Bloom County and Outland.

From Antarctica to Omaha, Opus has cavorted with space creatures, impersonated rock stars, fended off accusations of penguin lust, and even campaigned for office. Now, in addition to the classic strips, Berkeley Breathed also brings us never-before-collected Bloom County cartoons and original all-new material from his Opus comics.

Brace yourself for the sidesplitting, table-pounding, milk-through-the-nose-spewing laughter that only Opus and his outlandish friends can generate. The perfect collection for both die-hard fans and those discovering the matchless humor of Berkeley Breathed for the first time.

Synopsis:

At last, from one of the funniest minds — and pens — of recent times comes the definitive collection of the very best of Opus, everyone's favorite maladjusted penguin. In this collectible 25th anniversary compendium, Opus is joined by his hilarious supporting cast, including Bill the Cat and Milo, as he takes readers back to classic comic strips and introduces all-new material.

Synopsis:

Over the span of twenty-five years and three comic strips, a small penguin has waddled his way through the jubilant lunacy of American pop and political culture. Collected here for the first time is Opus's dubious life history told in his Sunday colors, digitally recolored and reproduced larger and more brightly than ever seen before.

Synopsis:

One of America's most popular illustrators, Berkeley Breathed won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize. His comic strips Bloom County and Outland ran for a total of 14 years in more than 1,000 newspapers around the world, and his books of collected strips have been perennial bestsellers. This collection is about Opus.
