Well, at least it’s a new one!
Welcome back Mr. Breathed. I hope this means that you’re feeling a whole lot better. We’ve missed you.
Opus! Don’t be such a stranger!
Governor Ron DeSantis can show you how to wear it without needing ears…
Breathed’s back! Yay! I wish they’d go to the Trump arc on Bloom County here on Go Comics but that is in ’88/89 and it is still in ’84 at the SF convention of the illustrious Meadow Party!
I was thinking, birds don’t seem to get it.
Shouldn’t this be Bloom County 2020 by now?
Tie a rubber band to it and put behind your head. I see people on the news taping them to their faces for haircuts.
I need a dandelion patch mask
I see that Berk’s Quarterly Report is out.
Atta boy, Berkley! I never stopped believing in you! (Your politics, on the other hand… but it’s good to see you back!)
Yay! A new one.
Covid-19 is for humans! Penguins don’t need no stinkin’ mask anyhow.
Get one of those fake beaks like mine and stuff it full of grass and herbs to keep the mal aria out.
Oh, my God! I was thinking this strip had been abandoned. Welcome back!
We missed ya
I was wondering when (or even “if”) this would show up here at GC. It appeared on Twitter a week ago, 6/1. Better late than never, I guess.
I missed the County. I need my dandelion breaks. Hope you’re okay Mr. Breathed.
HOLY CARP! NEW! (Maybe life didn’t completely break the poor guy, after all. ♡♡ )
Why does the numbering go from 843 to 901? Where are the ones in between?
Good one Berke ♥ LOLOL
Funny though… he still posted yet another one previous to this one over on Facebook on May 19. Not sure why it didn’t make it’s way over here.
If you aren’t sure of what you’re thinking, just call the FBI and they’ll tell you…
Opus shows some common sense. Use staples, penguin-boy!
Opus needs one that ties in the back.
The New Normal really sucks.
how many months till then next one
Perhaps its time to retire. Try not to go out like an over aged rocker with the 3 hairs left on his head spiked, and dyed green, blue, and red.
So, next strip in August/September then?
mm hmm – and how do you keep it from getting in through your eyes? Or, because the virus is so teeny tiny itty bitty small, from going right through the weave of your silly cloth mask? And when you’re alone in your car with the windows up & wearing a mask (I’ve actually seen this nonsense) are you protection yourself from yourself?
I like what my governor says about wearing a mask properly. He put his mask around his chin and declared that it isn’t a mask. It’s a chin guard. :-)
(wonders how this cartoon could be interpreted by certain beings several years from the time in which it was created)
Here we go again….
As much as I really like this strip, it has become too frustrating to keep checking to see if there is a new one or not. Only to be once again, disappointed. I’m out …
I bet we have another two month wait for the next one?
Okay… I can just FEEL a new one about to happen any second now… 10, 9, 8…
And we wait….
if he is going to insist on months between editions like he has been doing for a year, and he says it is to give him time or more serious art project, it is probably best that he abandon opus and us for the ourth time and just hang up his cartoonist pen
It’s been another month!
To say I miss this comic would be irresponsible understatement. I so needed Mr. Breathed’s incisive wit during these troubled times (especially of the political variety).
Plus the mask is to small to cover both your nose and mouth!
Time for a new comic!
Why does it take so long for a new one ?
Every other iteration of Bloom County ended with a bang. This one is ending with a whimper.
how can I find the calvin county strips?
If you have a Facebook account, you can see/read a Bloom County message from Opus.https://www.facebook.com/berkeleybreathed/posts/3487110024653059
If you don’t have a Facebook account, here’s what he said (minus the illustration):
GREETINGS FROM THE BUNKER!EVERYTHING’S TOTALLY NORMAL AND BORING!BB IS JUST WORKING ON SOME OTHER STUFF BUT HE’LL BE CHECKING IN TO INFECT US ALL OVER AGAIN SOON!
Maybe in August?
That’s too funny. Berke at his comic finest!
i’ve gone insane…keep coming back here expecting a different results
BERKE We need a new one – consider yourself an essential service, a first responder, a chronicler of Life in the Time of Covid. Please. We all hope you and all the Meadowlarks are well.
Thanks Berke, we still need ya!
When will there be a new one ?
Is anyone out there?
When will GoComics start leaving the year off of this strip? They can’t get it right, anyway.
Any day now?
I’m sure that at least Mr. Breathed will put out a new comic when Trump is reelected (sorry folks… it’s the pessimist in me… I worry).
godot shown up yet?
But normal no longer is good.
I keep checking and hoping.
Only in Gwinnett County, Georgia
Yeah, it’s time to accept the new version of the strip ended with a whimper, isn’t it?
Did the virus jump species again to penquins?
Another of the many, dead comics, taking up space.
why do I bother?
Another one gone. Might as well sent this one to Sherpa.
When is the new one going to be printed ?
It is, of course, your right, BB, but you’re staying silent now?
Still nothing? It’s been 3 months…
PLEASE COME BACK!!!
When will there be a new one ?
There are no new one’s ever . What happened ?
Any minute, now . . . any minute
And we shall not mention the nose area.
Well as of today Berkeley Breathed has not been reported dead, and he posted on Facebook on Sept. 16th, so we can assume he doesn’t have dementia. Maybe he just lost interest.
Still says 2019, but I get it. If I was Breathed, I wouldn’t want to associate my comic strip with 2020 either.
Miss this comic, especially now
Is anyone out there?”
might as well just close shop berk.
He’s going to need a biohazard helmet (and some less excitable friends).
So excellent as always. What joy
I’m just glad to see he didn’t quit. I’m a very big Bloom County fan. To me it seemed like both Outland and the Opus strips were missing something. I still can’t put my finger on what it was, but for some reason it’s got the same feeling that it had before and I, for one, am very happy about that.
Like most people who suddenly find themselves being attacked by an in-your-face raving lunatic for no reason whatsoever, Mr. Opus was probably “thinking” about finding the nearest exit.
Happy 4th month anniversary to this particular cartoon.
Any day now… I just KNOW it!
I miss this comic…
I think we can safely assume he’s retired again.
For anyone looking for Berkely’s whereabouts, he’s busy working on an animated film. He just announced it on Facebook. You’re welcome.
Bye BB. I’ve had enough.
I’ll continue to check back daily.
5 months and counting!
it’s 2020; no comment the election?
Yow. More than five months.
Thanks for that link. It’s a keeper.
Are we ever going to see a new strip ?
I’m spreading a rumor:
Joe Biden will take his oath of office while putting his hand on Mao’s Little Red Book.
Not a rumor: Biden and Pelosi said the Pledge of Allegiance, twice! and refused to say “Under God” either time.
Okay, Berk… after making us patiently wait this long, your next offering had better be a show-stopper! :-p
Commin’ up on half a year since the last one.
I’m hoping for a Christmas miracle.
C’mon, Berk! I was sooooo happy when you brought Opus back from the dead… and now you’re letting him die on the vine.
Over 6 months…where are you, Opus?
Merry Christmas Mr. Breathed. Hope you are doing well. We all miss you…
Please Mr. Breathed,Speak to me, speak to me!
I’m hoping the animation will be available soon and then he might find time to give Opus a few more rounds here….
Missing you this Christmas season BB. Opus must have a take on this year.
Opus, you wearing it wrong!
Merry Christmas, Berke, wherever you are.
Hoping for a Christmas gift of a new comic.
Happy New Year Mr. Breathed
We miss you Mr. Breathed. Your country, nay, the world, needs you.
New strip on Facebook, might see it here in a few days.
There’s a new one on Facebook 1/22/2021
I really miss him…..
Think this one will still be here come June, 2021?
There are two new strips on Facebook.1/21/2021 and 1/22/2021
Abby Fillerup must be grownup by now!
Do you have an alarm clock, Berkeley?
Guess it’s time to take this off my favorites list since he never posts a new one anymore.
I was looking at bloom county 2019, and thought I would look at its begging. Ya know, Mr. Breathed could probably revive it since The Donald’s 2nd impeachment is coming up. Everything would write itself, just add art.
Are they ever going to update this again?
What is up with this scrip , someone please tell what it is ?
There have been a number of newer strips posted on Breathed’s Facebook page. Have they just forgotten to update here or is there a third Bloom County page (the classic one, this one, and a 2021 version) on Go Comics that I don’t know about?
What’s the hold up?
Well, at least we can now call it vintage. And while you’re here, Bill the Cat plush is available now. :-P
What is up with this script ? Bloom County is usually up to date .
when will there be a new strip?
There are new ones on his FB page, but they’ve not been getting here for months.
If you became pregnant when this first ran, you’d be ready to give birth by now.
Will we ever see a new 2019 ?
When are they going to take this down?
That’s twice what Vincent Van Gogh was thinking.
There was a series of new strips on the Bloom County Facebook page about a month ago. I’m surprised they haven’t shown up here.
I suspect the what ever the “new” changes that are coming to Go Comics will eliminate this one just like it is removing some of my other favorites like “Hubris”. So far Greg at “Hubris” is the only one who has warned his readers that there are changes coming and his type of comic will no longer be here.
This’ll still be here after the pandemic is over.
Come on, Berk! It’s 2021 already! I know you have two other strips on here which is good. But don’t you think it’s time for a new Bloom County? As you can see, people like and appreciate your goofball and offbeat sense of humor!
I have several masks where the straps go around the back of my head instead of over my ears. I can pull them down around my neck when I’m not using them.
I see nothings changed here.
Has this strip been abandoned?
I can’t bring myself to delete this strip… I enjoyed it SO much!
One wonders if GoComics plans on updating this before masks become no longer necessary.
I’d pay for a new one.
How nice of you to stop by for a visit, Mr. Breathed. Wish it could be more often.
been a while
A year since it’s been updated? Come on Berkeley throw us a bone at least…
Wonder why no new ones are here? His Facebook page has several
Another zombie comic that is not dropped while soooo many good ones that are current are dropped. Happy anniversary since your last posting!!!
Welcome to the one year anniversary of this issue. Why do I keep coming back???
It’s been a year now since the miracle of Opus renewed — and the vigil continues…
Congratulations, it’s been a whole year without a new comic posted here.
We miss you BB…
Being put on hold like this makes me wonder if you work for the government.
Is this ever going to be updated? There have been new strips for months.
how come the new Bloom toons posted on FB are not finding their way here?
In the latest episode on Facebook, Bill is missing and has been replaced by Hobbes.June 2021.
I don’t understand why Go Comics removed comics like Hubris and keep ones like this. Don’t misunderstand, I love Bloom toons just wonder why comics that are regularly updated are dropped and some that don’t are still here?
Come back to the 5 and dime Berkeley Breathed, Berkeley Breathed…
C’mon, Berk! It’s time to take the masks off!
New series of strips out on his Facebook site. Nothing here.
It sure would be interesting to have Breathed’s take on this new (so-called) Administration,
Will , someone please tell me what happened to this guy ? ( Berkeley ) ?
Ha ha! I get it! No, I don’t.
That’s what I say whenever there’s a new Covid variant.
Dear Diary. It is Day 476 since we had a sign from Mr. Breathed. Yet I do not lose hope in his return to us. Hurry back.
he is still posting on Facebook! why the monopoly?
Why is this version of Bloom still on Go Comics. It hasn’t been updated since June, 2020.
Maybe it’s time to officially declare this strip dead.
