I spent last night going through my old Bloom County comics, and was amazed at just how funny and relevant these strips from the ‘80s still were, almost 20 years later. God bless Berkeley Breathed. Next time you’re ready for a dandelion break, get one of these books and see what a real comic strip is like, instead of the tired strips we have today. (Garfield or Hagar the Horrible, anyone?)
Jack Burton may yet ride again, if the sequel to Big Trouble In Little China becomes reality. And get this… Jackie Chan may be riding shotgun. Now that’s a duo I’d love to see.
I know I’m not the only one saying this, but right now, I can’t think of anything better than Broken Social Scene’s You Forgot It In People.
