    I had a few minutes before my book club. As I am wont to do, I headed over to the graphic novel section to browse. Frankly, the section is looking shabby these days. It appears that the offerings are severely depleted from a couple years ago. Anyhow, I browsed. Somehow I saw this and thought, "Why not?" I recall when Bloom County was all the rage. I then recall when Outland came out. I tried to read that back then, but I think it didn't make an impression on me then. The very first strip took a sw I had a few minutes before my book club.

I then recall when Outland came out. I tried to read that back then, but I think it didn't make an impression on me then. The very first strip took a swipe at President Bush (41). Yeah, I knew what I was reading at that point. Perhaps since it was just last week President Bush was buried, but I didn't like the swipes. There were Trump cuts too. To be fair, there was a dig at Democrats and Congress in general. Frankly, I thought most of the political jabs were weak. But there were some laughs. I think the humor that was more "everyday man" was better. And it certainly held up better than the dated references. Breathed certainly is talented. Opus is a riot. He's this strip's Linus, imo. Bill the Cat was always good for a laugh. I would give another volume a chance, if there were one.

    It's hard to read these strips without comparing them to Bloom County, a comic that I loved. When I do that, I spend most of my time missing most of that cast. However, when I try to shut off that part of my brain and read these strips without prior knowledge, they are just as fun and enjoyable as Bloom County was. The strips get stronger as the book continues. It's hard to read these strips without comparing them to Bloom County, a comic that I loved.

    Breathed's Bloom County was masterful. Much of it still holds up after all these years. But he really lost his way with Outland. The characters weren't as memorable or funny. The whole series seemed to have the life sucked out of it. It was still funny in some ways but paled in comparison to Bloom County. Breathed's Bloom County was masterful.

    I used to read this book all the time when I was a kid. I just love the humor and the characters. I came across this book while I was cleaning my computer room, so of course I had to sit down and read it through. Still makes me laugh.

    Dismissing this as a mere comic book would be a mistake. Full of heart, thoughtfulness and a good perspective on the world, Berkeley Breathed delivers it all with hilarity through a non-sequitur delivery.

    Not quite as transcendentally funny as "Billy And The Boingers Bootleg," but there's still awesomeness on every page. Not quite as transcendentally funny as "Billy And The Boingers Bootleg," but there's still awesomeness on every page.

    I think I dig Bloom County a bit more than Outland. I feel like there was more content in BC that wasn’t dependent on references to 80s stuff and it’s just not the case with Outland. I also read a bunch of these in a few different collections I think when I was a kid and I’m bewildered I got past the references I was just talking about. I must’ve had a good eye for just ignoring some things or sussing a joke out using context clues. Weird to think about but yeah stuff I was clearly more curious I think I dig Bloom County a bit more than Outland.

    Not as funny as Bloom County, but there's some good stuff here. I particularly liked the strip where Opus is attempting to buy some fireworks. He can't because they're illegal. "The government wants to protect us from burning our fingies," says our favorite penguin. In the last panel, he's seen holding the semi-automatic weapon that was perfectly legal for him to purchase. Huh? Not as funny as Bloom County, but there's some good stuff here. I particularly liked the strip where Opus is attempting to buy some fireworks. He can't because they're illegal.
