This one was actually a little sad. My Bloom County books.
Bloom County was a huge piece of my political awakening as a teen. In high school, I campaigned for George Bush, the 1st. I was a typical white teenager out of the Reagan years who grew up “middle class”.
Then I started reading Bloom County in the paper. I was hooked. I started reading more. Hunter S. Thompson at some point. Huxley. Fitzgerald. Orwell. Kerouac. Bukowski.
All b/c of Bill and Opus.
Haven’t really looked at them in years. Debated just giving them to Izzy, but figured someone may need them more right now in these times of Trump.
I’m keeping my clipping of the Naked in the Periwinkle strip.
Until next time…
