The Bill the Cat Story A Bloom County Epic

Author: Berkeley Breathed
Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 9780399546785
Release Date: 2016-09-13
Genre: Juvenile Fiction

The Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of the hilarious "Bloom County" comic strip is back! To help celebrate, here is the first ever Bloom County picture book, featuring fan-favorite Bill the Cat in an origin story. (Ack ack!) The perfect gift for Bloomers old and new. An Amazon Best Book of the Year and NY Times bestseller! Almost thirty-five years ago Berkeley Breathed launched a little-known yet laugh-inducing comic strip called "Bloom County" that was full of characters who instantly entered the public consciousness--none more so than Opus (the penguin) and Bill the Cat. Bloom County's popularity soared, it was soon syndicated nationally, had millions of daily readers, and before long its creator was awarded a Pulitzer Prize. Then, nine years later, "Bloom County" sadly came to a close. It had simply ceased being fun for Berkeley Breathed. Now, more than twenty-five years after it ended, "Bloom County" has returned in full force and humor online, with an ever-growing fanbase every bit as zealous as it was in the strip's heyday. For the comic's youngest fans, and for those who never stopped wishing for its return, here is an all-new, kid-friendly story for anyone who ever wanted to know the origin story of Bill the Cat. "Bloom County" has never been more fun! Praise for The Bill the Cat Story "The illustrations, a mixture of cartoons, eye-popping virtual paintings, and pencil sketches, will pull inquisitive audiences of all ages into the story."--Booklist "[E]xtravagantly rendered artwork in luscious color."--Publishers Weekly

Genre: Comics & Graphic Novels

He tried to warn us. Ever since the release of the first Trump-for-President trial balloon in 1987, Doonesbury’s Garry Trudeau has tirelessly tracked and highlighted the unsavory career of the most unqualified candidate to ever aspire to the White House. It’s all there--the hilarious narcissism, the schoolyard bullying, the loathsome misogyny, the breathtaking ignorance; and a good portion of the Doonesbury cast has been tangled up in it. Join Duke, Honey, Earl, J.J., Mike, Mark, Roland, Boopsie, B.D., Sal, Alice, Elmont, Sid, Zonker, Sam, Bernie, Rev. Sloan, and even the Red Rascal as they cross storylines with the big, orange airhorn who’s giving the GOP such fits. Garry Trudeau is the “sleazeball” “third-rate talent” who draws the “overrated” comic strip Doonesbury, which “very few people read.” He lives in New York City with his wife Jane Pauley, who “has far more talent than he has."

Berkeley Breathed s Academia Waltz and Other Profound Transgressions

Author: Berkeley Breathed
Publisher: IDW Publishing
ISBN: 1631400762
Release Date: 2015
Genre: American wit and humor, Pictorial

Berkeley Breathed is known as the creator of the wildly popular and influential comic strip Bloom County, and, in particular, for his most iconic character Opus. Over the course of a little more than eight years Bloom County was one of the best selling comic strips ever, winning Berkeley a coveted Pulitzer Prize. The artist went on to do two more sunday-only strips, Outland and Opus, as well as producing best-selling children's books and screenplays. But before Breathed began his storied career he was a (not so) humble college student at the University of Texas and a contributor to the Daily Texan newspaper where he wrote and drew political cartoons as well as... The Academia Waltz. Berkeley would go on to finance his college studies by self-publishing two paperback collections of AW, selling over 10,000 copies. The strip drew the attention of the Washington Post Syndicate which eventually began publishing a new creation by Berkeley... Bloom County. Many of the characters in the new strip originally appeared in Academia Waltz, most notably Steve Dallas. Now, for the first time -- from the rarely seen archives of Berkeley Breathed -- comes the nearly (we think) complete Academia Waltz!

The catalog showcased a number of Breathed's Bloom County strips, each shot from the original art, as well as a selection of his children's book illustrations. Additionally there are essay's and an interview with Breathed. Now through special arrangement with the Cartoon Art Museum and Berkeley Breathed, IDW is pleased to off this lovely book-and fine companion piece to the Bloom County Library-to the direct market.

Genre: Art

Berkeleyworks, the art of Berkeley Breathed provides a striking and often unseen glimpse at the long and varied career of an artistic enigma. Breathed is a top-selling comic-strip auteur who professes both ambivalence and embarrassed discomfort with the form. A lifelong creative contradiction, he is a sentimental children's-book author with a jaundiced and suspicious view of the world. Bridging the two extremes and keeping them from flying apart is an ebullient sense of humor that permeates it all. He is, at once, a guerrilla-prankster and a romantic storyteller, a scribbler and a painter, a thinker and a stinker.
