The Bloom County Library
IDW Publishing is proud to launch The Bloom County Library, a five volume collection featuring every daily and Sunday strip in chronological order, many reprinted for the first time. The Bloom County Library Volume One is now available, and Volume Two will be arriving in stores in April 2010.
Berkeley Breathed's Bloom County is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed newspaper strips of modern times. Premiering on December 8th, 1980 - a month after the election of Ronald Reagan as President - the strip brought to the comics pages a unique amalgam of contemporary politics and fantasy, all told with hilarious humor and wit.
The Bloom County Library will also contain a series of "Context Pages" sprinkled throughout the volumes, providing perspective for the reader and presenting a variety of real-life events and personalities that were contemporary at the time of original publication.
