When I was younger, I loved Bloom County.Â When it ended, I was a tad sad, but thought everything wrapped up nicely.Â When Breathed launched Opus, I read it of and on, but never felt it captured the crazy spirit behind Bloom County.Â Perhaps it was the Sunday only appearance that left me feeling all “meh” inside.
Berkeley Breathed contacted the Los Angeles Times, announcing to the world, that now Opus will be ending its five year run on November 2, 2008.
â€œ30 years of cartooning to end. Iâ€™m destroying the village to save it. Opus would inevitably become a ranting mouthpiece in the coming wicked days, and I respect the other parts of him too much to see that happen. The Michael Moore part of me would kill the part of him that was important to his fans.â€
Opus will end with an online contest asking readers to guess the fate of the fan fave penguin.
