KF on KND Editor’s Note:Some reviewers have given the first book in this series low marks due to formatting concerns. The reviewers complain the strips are presented in too small a size to be easily readable. I’ve bought the first book in the series and did not find this to be the case. While it’s true that the strips cannot be enlarged on-screen, since there’s only one strip per “page” (or screen), this isn’t really a problem. Based on reviews from other books in the series, it seems these books may have been re-formatted since they were originally released.
If you buy one or more of these and decide you agree with the negative reviewers, you have seven days from date of purchase to return the ebook for a full refund.
Specially formatted digital edition! Collecting every strip from December 8, 1980, through December 31, 1981, in chronological order, with a new cover insert by Breathed.
Berkeley Breathed’s Bloom County burst onto the American comic scene in December 1980 and it soon became one of the most popular comic strips of all time. The endearing and quirky denizens of the strip included Milo Bloom, Steve Dallas, Michael Binkley, Cutter John, Bill the Cat, and Opus the Penguin. Bloom County was a strip that dealt with many issues relevant to the period. Occasional “Context comments” are added throughout this collection, giving the reader a greater understanding of the time.
This is the first time Bloom County has been collected in a digital library. IDW will add more volumes, one year per volume. Each newspaper strip is reproduced in chronological order from first to last. Great effort has been made to ensure the highest production values are achieved.
Specially formatted digital edition! Collecting every strip from January 1, 1982, through December 31, 1982, in chronological order.
One Amazon reviewer says:
If you’ve been following the formatting issues with other entries in this series, I can tell you this– I just downloaded the sample onto my kindle fire, and it is just perfect.
The formatting is oriented the proper direction, and the content is actually readable.
In fact, some extra care has been taken to give every strip a nicely designed setting.
