BLOOM COUNTY, THE COMIC STRIP BY BERKE BREATHED, HAS, IN THE TWO YEARS SINCE ITS SYNDICATION BY THE WASHINGTON POST, BECOME A DAILY FIX FOR ITS RAPIDLY GROWING CULT FOLLOWING AND HAS QUICKLY RISEN TO A PROMINENT POSITION AMONG COMIC STRIPS OF SOCIAL, CULTURAL AND POLITCAL HUMOR.
BLOOM COUNTY IS POPULATED BY A LARGE CAST OF ENDEARING ECCENTRICS: MILO BLOOM, THE PRECOCIOUS TEN-YEAR-OLD INTELLECTURAL, ‘MAD DOG’ BINKLEY, HIS SISSIFIED SIDEKICK WHO CAN’T STOMACH WHEATIES BUT EATS ‘PRUNES AND PARSLEY, THE BREAKFAST OF NINCOMPOOPS’, CUTTER JOHN, THE WHEELED HERO OF THE MEADOW POPULACE, BOBBI HARLOW, A FEMINIST; HER WOULD-BE SUITOR AND STUD-IN-TRAINING, STEVE DALLAS; AND OPUS, THE GENTLE BUT OPINIONATED PENGUIN WHO HAS BECOME FOR MANY READERS THE HEART OF BLOOM COUNTY.
WITH ITS CANDOR AND CONROVERSY, BLOOM COUNTY COULD AS EASILY BE ON THE EDITORIAL PAGE AS IN THE COMICS. THERE ARE NO SACRED COWS—PENGUINS, PERHAPS—BUT IT’S OPEN SEASON ON EVERYTHING ELSE BREATHED CARES TO SKEWER, INCLUDING THE LEFT, THE RIGHT, THE MACHO, THE MORAL MAJORITY, JAMES WATT, TV, THE CREATIONISTS, DAVID STOCKMAN, FOOTBALL, THE ROYAL COUPLE, THE REAGANS, AD INFINITUM. BREATHED’S OBSERVATIONS OF OUR SOCIAL MORES, CULTURAL MANNERS AND STATUS RITUALS ARE LOGIC LACED WITH LUNACY, POLITICS WITH A TWIST. IT IS SAID THAT THERE IS A FINE LINE BETWEEN INSANITY AND GENIUS AND THOSE IN BLOOM COUNTY WALK THAT LINE.
BERKE BREATHED ATTENDED THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS, WHERE HE PUBLISHED THE COMIC STRIP ACADEMIA WALTS, THE GENESIS OF BLOOM COUNTY. HE CURRENT RESIDES DEEP IN AMERICA’S HEARTLAND. Published by LITTLE BROWN AND COMPANY in 1983
