I gradually stopped reading the comic section after Larson retired. I saw this strip in the Opinion Section in the Star Advertiser and thought "Only if...."

bloom county was pretty cool, kinda where Wiggs would live. my fave parts are especially when they did2 angles where Bill the Cat started a heavy metal band playing lead tongue and where Bill the Cat dies  and they question the comic characters who last saw him in his final 24 hours




Bill The Cat (Bloom County)



Created as a satirical dig at Garfield back when the surly feline first became an insane marketing phenomenon, Bill The Cat was introduced to readers by some of Bloom County's characters, who suggested that everyone should run right out and buy some adorable Bill The Cat merchandise. Naturally, creator Berkeley Breathed made him as unmarketable as possible, a grotesque, hairball-spitting, bug-eyed, straggly thing that looked something like a Garfield plush toy after a trip through a food processor. Shortly after introducing him, the strip killed him off, claiming alternately that he died of acne and that he crashed his Ferrari into a cactus at 143 mph after months of drug abuse and rock-star-style excess. But his tongue was salvaged from the wreck and delivered to the series' resident genius. Oliver Wendell Jones, who cloned him and restored him to the strip—and subsequently to Breathed's follow-up strips, Outland and Opus.

He never got stale so I think he still had a lot of good years left. But you have a good point. No one likes to see someone drag it on just for the sake of staying in the game.

Just miss him. Really brighten my day with a good laugh and his unique perspective on life, And all in one frame.
