Cartoon Art Museum celebrates Bloom County

I noted earlier this week that it was 30 years ago that Bloom County debuted in newspapers. The Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco will be running an exhibit of Berkeley Breathed‘s art work ranging from Bloom County, his children’s books, and movie projects. A reception will be planned in April.

It should also be noted that IDW is publishing the complete Bloom County collection. Volumes 1-3 are already out and 4 is due out in February.

Bloom County: The Complete Collection, Vol. 1: 1980-1982 (Bloom County Library)

Bloom County: The Complete Collection, Vol. 2: 1982-1984 (Bloom County Library)

Bloom County: The Complete Collection, Vol. 3: 1984-1986 (Bloom County Library)

You’re telling me! The strip was pretty well established when I discovered it as a ten-year-old, and that was almost 25 years ago!
