Bloom County Episode XI: A New Hope
by Berkeley Breathed
Coming out on September 13, 2016
I was so excited when I saw this title pop up on Netgalley. I loved reading Bloom County when I was a teenager/twenty something. That would be the first thing I would read when the evening newspaper came. I think I also owned all of the books and somewhere I still have my stuffed Opus. The story behind this book: in 2015 Berkeley started writing Bloom County strips again and publishing them on his Facebook page for his friends and fans. Silly me not being a fan (never thought to look!) I didn’t know about them. I got the ARC from Netgalley and read them in one sitting. Then a couple of days later, I did it again! They were awesome! After all these years the gang is back and suppling us with their wit, charm and satire on the political and social issues of the day. I can’t wait to introduce Bloom County to a new generation of teenagers and Young Adults. Thank you Berkeley!
