|Opus the Penguin and Bill the Cat|
Admittedly, I only began following Bloom County in 1981 because of Opus, a large nosed, naive and perpetually optimistic penguin who was born in the Falkland Islands.
Next to Opus is Bill the Cat, who was at one time Opus's running mate for the National Radical Meadow Party.
I'm not one who follows politics very closely, but Bloom County enabled me to see the funny side of it.
As the author wrote today, "A return after 25 years. Feels like going home."
