Bill the Cat, Opus the Penguin, shyster lawyer Steve Dallas, Binkley’s Closet of Anxieties and other characters from the beloved Bloom County comic could be returning with the publication of a new series of strips, says the comic’s creator.

According to BuzzFeed, author and illustrator Berkeley Breathed announced on Sunday that he intends to start publishing the comic again after a lengthy hiatus.

In a Facebook post, Breathed showed himself drawing on a touch screen computer. The panel he is inscribing reads “Bloom County 2015” and shows a faint outline of Opus, a talking penguin and a central character of the strip, which was a staple during the 1980s and 90s.

“A return after 25 years. Feels like going home,” reads the photo’s caption.

One commenter asked Breathed if the return of the strip had anything to do with Donald Trump’s entry into the 2016 presidential race.

“This creator can’t precisely deny that the chap you mention had nothing to do with it,” Breathed replied.

Bloom County originally ran as a daily black and white strip with a Sunday color edition from December 8, 1980, until August 6, 1989. It spawned two spin-off weekly series, Outland and Opus.

While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.
