Breathed can't be that bad

October 10, 2009

I have to admit that my heart skipped more than a few beats when I read the title of your Berkeley Breathed story, "Creating a New Opus" [by Geoff Boucher, Oct. 3]. Dare I dream that sweet, innocent Opus was returning to brighten the dismal world of political bickering and mayhem in which we seem to live?

Alas, it was not to be.

In the article, Breathed, ever edgy, pronounces himself a "fraud and a cheat." When I read that line, I went back and reread Breathed's "Pete and Pickles" book and some of my prized Opus strips.

Methinks Breathed protests too much about his flawed character. Anyone who could create Opus and Pickles has to have a heart of gold.
