5.0 out of 5 stars Top shape limited edition version!, June 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bloom County: The Complete Library Volume 3 Limited Signed Edition (The Bloom County Library) (Hardcover)
If you're even looking at this version of the book you already know what a brilliant man Mr. Berkeley Breathed is, how influential his particular brand of anthropomorphic animal, absurdest, surrealistic, political humor has been on a generation of comic strip fans. As such, you don't want a recount of the plot, don't need an introduction to Milo or Binkley, Opus or Bill. What you want is an an actual book touched and signed by the man himself - for a reasonable, discounted price.

Out of all three volumes released so far released, I can't help but think this is the best. Unlike the previous two the makers have abandoned the sizable sticker on the back altogether and, like Vol 2, the autograph is set within the book itself. (For the record, Vol 1 had the plate pasted onto the second page, just after the inside cover). The parts that remain the same throughout this series are the high quality paper, strong binding and the absolute best presentation of Mr. Breathed's work ever released.

The best part of it all is that this particular volume has been reduced to a fraction of the others by 50%. That's right! Goodbye 1000 copies; hello 500! Why the sudden change? I don't know. Maybe Mr. Breathed's signing hand cramps easier these days. Maybe it took longer for the previous editions to sell out than the makers would have wanted. Either way, you better snatch this up quickly before it sells out. Judging by previous editions' price on the secondary market, your pocketbook will hate you if you wait.
