    1. Bloom County is a wonderful comic strip that flourished in the 1980's and then abruptly disappeared when the author retired. Now, over 25 years later, Berkeley Breathed has come out of retirement and brought back the strip, now available daily online. His characters of Opus the Penguin, Bill the Cat, Steve Dallas and many children poke fun at our society with gentle humor and great humanity. The best thing about the online Bloom County is that the author draws them in real time, meaning that he [...]


    2. Bloom County shenanigans are back in Berkeley's new book. The denizens of Bloom County really have a way of taking current events and cranking them up a notch to show us how absurd they can be. Since he is writing freer and not constrained to a newspaper deadline, he can respond quickly to current events. This is evident in this book. However, without proper context, I feel some of the jokes will be lost as time passes. It would have been nice to include a little note, or date, of the original p [...]


    3. While not as revolutionary, or as enjoyable, as 1980s era Bloom County, this compilation of Breathed's recent works is still entertaining. I enjoyed re-visiting many of the earlier characters, but it's obvious that Breathed has moved on from the self-absorbed, womanizing portrayal of Steve Dallas (likely due to changing cultural/political influences) and has cut back on the craziness of Cutter John. Most notable however, is the lack of trying to explain Bill the Cat's catatonic state-of-shock. I [...]


    4. I have missed seeing Berkeley Breathed's Bloom County; his type of humor has me laughing, snorting, chuckling, and chuffing. So 'Brand Spanking New Day' was a treat. It covers 2016, which was such a fertile year for Mr. Breathed brand of humor. From politics to general life, I looked forward to every page. Imagine Opus trying to make Game of Thrones appropriate for family hour, the Snark Knights of the Realm, MetLife tossing Snoopy out, and, of course, the election.I received this book through a [...]


    5. This was a good collection which starts where Bloom County Episode XI: A New Hope left off. All of the familiar flavor and a new character (view spoiler)[Sam's dog Zulu (hide spoiler)] to boot!






    6. Part two of the return. Breathed has saved the daily comic as a forum for social satire by adapting to the new media. Bravo!



    7. The second volume of the revitalised BLOOM COUNTY. For the die-hard fans only though. If you are new to this American treasure I would suggest you start from the beginning from back in the 80's. All the strips have been collected. Have fun!
