Wow, I rediscovered this book for myself, been sitting in the garage for years, brilliant cartoons, very witty, and the illustrations really invoke the gritty 80s. I love the way he draws women too!

Bloom County was a politically charged comic strip that was a Doonesbury for the 80's. Berke Breathed created one of the most bizzare collection of cartoon characters, mixing animals and people with neither one noticing. Billy & The Boingers Bootleg in part chronicles the metal band Billy & The Boingers which had Bill The Cat on tongue & Opus on electric tuba. They were metal gods and their crazy antics were an obvious swipe at all the Parents Against Explicit Lyrics action that was going on at the time. The events taking place in the meadow also find Opus getting a girlfriend, Lola, and other incidents that mirrored the times. For anyone who remembers the 80's, Bloom County remains a touchstone. The back cover is a hilarious spoof of U2's Joshua Tree album cover.
