    One thought on “Berkeley Breathed's Opus: The Complete Library: Sunday Comics: 2003-2008”

    1. At times, the strip devolves into a sort of bewildered, "get off my lawn," old man ranting against the young and their newfangled devices vibe, but overall this is a satisfying last fling for one of pop culture's most enduring characters. Opus acts as a great observer of modern life, and an even better reaction to the craziness that often comes with the human condition. The ending is bittersweet but oddly perfect, and while I'll miss the little pudgepot, I take solace that I got to accompany him [...]

    2. The 'final' collection of Bloom County strips that mainly feature Opus and Steve Dallas before Berkeley Breathed's current revival of the series on Facebook, it starts with Opus in Antarctica deciding to return to Bloom County.But how things have moved on. Many of his friends from the Bloom County strip are not present. Steve Dallas appears, but is now older (but not much wiser) and has a son! Bill the Cat is there, unchanged (but then, it hard to tell if he has changed). The strips also have a [...]

    3. Probably the most political comic strip starring an antropomorphic penguin, in existence. Several years after Bloom County ran it's course, Opus returned to comment on the insanity of Bush era.Starting more or less as an solo series, Berkeley Breathed soon gets other well known characters like Steve Dallas and running gags like the always funny anxiety closet back into the mix. Since this new incarnation contains only sunday pages, there are no long storylines to be followed, which were the bigg [...]

    4. Nice to get a collection of the Opus strips, as I don't think these were carried by anyone in the UK. While they never quite reach the heights of Bloom County, possibly because the Sunday only format didn't really allow for any particular narrative, there are still good proportion of incisive and funny cartoons.The final writing out of Opus is both moving and appropriate. After 25 odd years as the penguin savant, he finally gets to rest where he most wants to be.

    5. I remember when this strip debuted, the newspaper made a big deal about it. I was too young to remember Bloom County and Outland, and most of the jokes went over my head. Revisiting it now, I think it's Breathed's best work. It is colorful and funny and as inventive as ever.

    6. Man, do I ever miss Bloom County. This book, though, isn't Bloom County. It's more of a reminder of what was a "golden age" of comic strips. And by golden age, I mean golden age in MY lifetime. There are comics that predate me (Peanuts, etc.) that are just as legendary.But I digress.As a kid who never understood the joys of the sports page, I would gravitate to the comics section of the Sunday newspaper each and every week. So my childhood and teens were spent on a solid diet of Berkeley Breathe [...]

    7. Reading this last volume of Breathed's comics, I realized that I missed quite a few of the Opus Sunday strips. None of the local newspapers carried it. Like the previous collections, I can only marvel at the craziness we seem to be reliving over and over again. Kind of scary too. Scratch that. Without Opus to help navigate life, it's frakkin' terrifying.

    8. Take a trip back to the Bush years Although I really never want to revisit that nightmare, these strips had me laughing out loud a lot!

    9. The definitive collection of Breathed's final (until _Bloom County 2015_) comic strip. Opus remains the befuddled everyman we all wish we could, at some level, be. Plus, funny as all get out.

    10. this was my week for disappointing reads. I had forgotten that I didn't like OPUS as much as Bloom County or even Outland. oh well.

    11. Opus! Is he us or who we would like to be? A sage. One of those characters who tells us who we are, but in a way that we can hear and accept it.Thank you Berke Breathed.
