What made me laugh in 1978: One of Breathed's earliest strips reflects upon the behavior of the American male.
By 1980 Breathed's style was more established and Steve Dallas had emerged as a regular character:
After his days at UT, Breathed went on to create Bloom County. Occasionally, a little of the edge and social commentary gave way to some warmth.
Eventually, Bloom County gave way to Outland. Here, Breathed sheds light on the essence of men.
