"A return after 25 years. Feels like going home," Breathed wrote.

Opus, one of the residents of Bloom County, later went on to appear in his own comic strip, which ran until 2008.

With its cast of human residents and talking animals, Bloom County was known for its playful takes on American politics.

In 1987 Breathed won a Pulitzer Prize for the strip, which continued to run until 1989.
