OPUS: a short, flightless waterfowl, who is somewhat the main
character of the strip. He's a loving friend, and also works in the Personal Ads Section
of Bloom County's newspaper, The Bloom Beacon. Opus' favorite pastime is sorting out his
thoughts and relaxing in a dandelion field, or being a part of the Men's Kouch Club where
he and his other 'macho' friends have meetings. During the late 80's, Opus also had some
Star Trek adventures with Cutter John, a retired Vietnam Vet who was in a wheel chair.
Here is an Opus Timeline. See the changes he went through from when the strip first started out, and where it lays and stays today:
