Opus the Penguin is the star of the classic comic strip %28comic%29″ target=”_blank”>Outland. And now I find out that Opus came back almost three frickin’ years ago in his own Sunday comic called, appropriately enough, Opus.
Opus has been a hero of mine since a good friend (Hi Rach!) gave me the first Bloom County collection, Loose Tails, when we were in high school. Opus is a naive good-hearted doofus who tends to get swept along in the crazy events that surround him. (Not that I identify with him or anything. )
I need to get out those old Bloom County collections again. It’s been too long since I’ve had a good silly laugh.
