Casual fans of Berkeley Breathed can get his new Collectors Set Limited Release Of Bloom County: Real, Classy, & Compleat: 1980-1989 for about $100. True fans of Breathed should be ready to shell out $1,200 for a collection from the man himself. 

Presenting every Bloom County daily and Sunday strip in chronological order from the first to the last. Bloom County originally debuted in late 1980 and ran until August 1989. It soon became one of the most popular comic strips in history, appearing in over 1200 newspapers. Then, at the peak of its popularity, Berkeley Breathed did something unprecedented... he walked away. Now, more than 25 years later, the complete collection of the Pulitzer Prize-winning comic strip is collected into a deluxe, two-volume box set.


For $1,200, each set contains two original pieces of Berke Breathed art: a page from his sketchbooks and the original art from a Bloom County daily strip from the original run. It'll also include a signed and personalized sketch of Opus.

  • A box set of the 2017 release of Bloom County: Real, Classy, & Compleat: 1980-1989 with a hand-drawn sketch of Opus by Berkeley, plus his signature and personalization to the name of your choice. The book set features two large paperback volumes.
  • A vintage page from Berkeley's sketchpad. Each page is an original. Each page will be chosen randomly.
  • An original, vintage, hand-drawn strip from Berkeley's private vault, each featuring Opus. Each original strip will be chosen randomly.
