One of the saddest comic's I've ever read was the very last Bloom County. When Calvin and Hobbes sledded off into the distance for the last time I was left with the impression that they were still out there doing little kid and tiger things, we simply were no longer watching them. But Breathed dismantled Bloom County in such a way that there was no doubt the county was gone from all but memory. Opus walking off into a blank, white distance was a final image.
I really hope Opus gets his wish for wings that work.
