Dude!!!

I used to visit the 'States frequently in my earlier life.
That's when I fell in love with Opus and the gang! (Check out my avatar - notice anything (different)?)

Where did you get that from?
What's in it?

Can I get one?

I have noticed your avatar many times..

I got it from amazon, was just released, and I have preordered volume 2.

they contain every version of bloom county has ever drawn in cronological order, including stuff never before released, etc..

I am not a collector in any way or shape - but I know that I have to own this one!

I just hope that it is available in UK.
I know it will be twice the price but - sod it!

(BTW - in the UK we pretty much pay twice the price you guys in the 'States pay.
$35 = 35 quite often*. How fair is that???)


* Granted - not always, but often...

I'm not really a collector, but there are some things I like to hang onto, and bloom county is one.. it really defines the decade, and I grew up with it.

I was sad when they finally "laid opus to rest"

True - but beautifully drawn and poignant.

It was my favorite comic of those times, my girlfriend at the time got me one of the large compilation books for my birthday smile

I have almost all of the compilation books that were released over the years
