I've been rereading my Bloom County books. They're holding up quite well, I feel, no matter how 80s zeitgeist they are. I remember looking through Penguin Dreams and Stranger Things in my bookstore back in Oslo, never having heard of Bloom County before. The Michael Jackson glove strip clinched the deal and I bought the book. The strip peaked in the next book, Billy and The Boingers Bootleg, and then it unfortunately started going downhill in the next one, Tales Too Ticklish to Tell, with Breathed doing a lot of close-ups and changing the angle in each panel for no reason. If it aint broke, don't fix it.
