Berkeley Breathed, of Bloom County fame, has announced that he is returning to the Sunday comics pages with Opus, which has already been picked up by 160 newspapers nationwide. What's more, he has been guaranteed a full half a page a week in the comics section! Frankly, I was excited enough just to hear about his latest book, "Flawed Dogs", which looks wonderful. More details on Opus are available in this interview with Berkeley on Salon. Not to be outdone, MSNBC has an interview with Opus!
Now, if only they can talk Bill Watterson into bringing back Calvin and Hobbes. He could have the other half of the page!
