Berkley Breathed won a Pulitzer Prize in 1987 for his comic strip Bloom County, which illustrated current events through the voices of the talking animals and worldly-wise children who inhabit a fictional small-town America. The original strip ran for nine years but inspired numerous spin-offs and an online revival that is still updating today.
