I was always a big fan of Bloom County, had not much love for Outland, and have been interested to see what would happen with Opus. Not much, it appears. Opus (the strip) never got off the ground, imho, but the character is still endearing in an oofish, leftist way. (In the back of some drawer I still have a “Penguin Lust” t-shirt. My dad wasn’t too happy about that.) FWIW I remember each of the strips alluded to above, with the obvious expection of the Palin joke. To this day I cannot talk about Hare Krishnas without referring to them as “hairy fishnuts” (at least silently to myself).
