The first shows Berkeley digitally drawing "Bloom County 2015" and the second one is the final product with Opus and Milo, 25 years later.
Bloom County ran for 9 years (from 1980 to 1989), it seems so much longer.
Donald Trump may be the reason for the return. This was an exchange under Berkeley's Facebook photo:
Larry Warshall (a fan): Dear Mr. Breathed.With Donald Trump returning to the Political Spectum, I believe it is only fitting. I have missed you guys.
Berkeley Breathed: This creator can't precisely deny that the chap you mention had nothing to do with it.
The copyright on the image is Berkeley Breathed and not a syndicate, so no one is sure yet whether it will be printed in newspapers or just appear online.
Last June, Bill Watterson, "Calvin and Hobbes" creator, returned to the comics pages by drawing a few panels in Stephan Pastis' "Pearls Before Swine." So now all that's missing for a come back is Gary Larson and "The Far Side."
It's really nice to see so much attention returning to the comics pages.
