Opus the penguin is finally leaving the comic pages for good.|
That announcement signals the end of Opus, the charming penguin who has entertained comics readers for nearly 30 years, starting with Bloom County. Though Breathed has retired the character before, this time, he says, he means it.The comics section of my local paper is almost unrecognizable these days... sad times. The new crop of writers just don't do as good a job.
"I'll be leaving Opus in a way that it should be very clear that this time there's no going back home," says Breathed.
