"Goodnight Opus"

The final Opus comic strip appeared online a couple hours ago, but the final reveal of the beloved penguin’s ‘final paradise’ had to wait for the Humane Society to update its website. (An interesting strategy for Berkeley Breathed, who started the eponymous Sunday Funnie as absolutely-paper-only… I’m sure Opus fans who acquired newsstand “Saturday Preview” editions of their Sunday papers are especially pissed) Well, the waiting is finally over because here he is…

here.

After all his references to Peanuts and a recent appearance at the Charles Schulz Museum, I had publicly guessed he’d end up “sharing a doghouse with Snoopy”, but did so too late to enter the contest.

Berkeley Breathed explained much of it here and here.

…thus bringing semi-closure to one of my personal obsessions. In tribute, I am currently attired only in a towel, like Steve Dallas in the last three strips. And I wrote the title to this post hours before seeing the final panel. Spooky.

    Hey,
    Saw your info re parody for Tom Campbell. Any chance you can put that up on youtube, even a pseudoPseudonym.

    BTW have held onto a Ralph Willians out take by one of the best, Chick Lambert. He also was the anti- Hysterical!
