Former Boating columnist Berke Breathed brings back his iconic Bloom County cartoon

July 16, 2015

Overboard Column

“Bloom County” cartoonist Berke Breathed once wrote a Boating column called “Overboard.”

We here at Boating Magazine are elated with the news that Berkeley Breathed is reviving his famous comic strip “Bloom County” after a 25 year hiatus. Besides the comic being fantastically hilarious and awesome, Breathed is part of the rich history of our magazine.

For a while in the late 1980s and early 1990s, he wrote a column for the magazine entitled “Overboard,” under the byline of Berkeley “Bonefish” Breathed. Attached is one of his columns from our July 1990 issue. Recognize the penguin? (In case you forgot, it’s Opus.)
