Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Bloom County Episode XI: A New Hope

Bloom County Episode XI: A New Hope  - Berkeley Breathed

It's Bloom County:  you either get the humour or you don't.  I've been a huge fan of Breathed's work since the 80's and when he quit if felt like a friend died.  His come-back has been a driving force behind my putting up with Facebook's daily crap and most days the only reason I open FB at all.


Episode XI:  A New Hope is a collection of the new FB only strips and they are wonderful.  I rarely never laugh out loud the way I do when one of Breathed's strips hits me just right.  I howled at a few of these and conversely, there were a couple of strips that teared me up.  


Breathed is a genius at holding up a mirror for all of us and allows me to laugh at the stuff that normally makes me want to hide under my bed.  


Thank you, thank you, thank you for bring Opus and the gang back.
