Magnum Opus

We recently announced that we'd be doing a complete collection of Berkeley Breathed's masterful BLOOM COUNTRY strip in a series of deluxe hardcovers. The final design for the books is now done, courtesy of designer/editor/Eisner-winner Dean Mullaney. And Breathed supplied all-new artwork for the center image on this first cover, too.

Really looking forward to this.

Chris, this isn't really related to your post, but I just finished Volume 6 of 'Terry and the Pirates' and wanted to thank everyone at IDW for bringing this out.

I bought your Little Orphan Annie, Dick Tracy, and the Sickles volume too, but Terry really stands out even in that company.

Can you tell us when the Rip Kirby books start to roll out?

I'll pass that note on to Dean Mullaney, who put together all the Terry books (and Annie, Sickle and as of Vol. 7, Dick Tracy, too). He's working on Kirby and now Bloom and Family Circus, with Kirby slated for Fall release. I'll give exact dates when we get closer.
