Magnum Opus?

Opus is back. Berkeley Breathed is back. I may have to start buying newspapers again.

Munk said what she has seen of "Opus" makes it "totally worth" dropping two comics to create space for Breathed's new strip. "We purchased it as soon as we found out it was available," she said. "I think it will be as popular as 'Bloom County.'"


Breathed won a 1987 Pulitzer Prize for "Bloom County," which ran in nearly 1,300 papers before ending in 1989. He also did the Sunday "Outland" from 1989 to 1995, has created a number of children's books, and is working on a film starring Opus.

Strange, I was just talking about how I would love to see this come back how I missed Berke's twisted view and how I wish I could hear his opinions on recent events.

I guess I may yet get that chance.

This is great news!
