First off, Bloom County creator Berkeley Breathed released the first new Bloom County strip in twenty-five years!
What inspired him to return? There are a few theories, but I'd like to believe that it's because he saw what was coming for the 2016 election and decided that he had to be a part of that. It's perfect for Opus, Bill, Steve Dallas, Milo, and all the others to get in on! Here's hoping Bill the Cat runs again!
Second, you all remember my interview with VFX ninja and friend of the show Billy Brooks, right? Well, he was at SDCC for a panel on the web series he worked on called Con Man, which stars former Firefly cast members Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk. Also working on the show was Billy's partner, Barry Bishop. The panel was being moderated by comedian Chris Hardwick (aka @nerdist), and he took a moment to introduce the two of them to the crowd of roughly 7000 people in Hall H. And then this happened:
So, a big shout out and congratulations to Billy and Barry from all of us here at Ugly Couchcast Industries!
And now, let's get to some tweets shall we? And, as always, if you dig these, you should totally come on over to Twitter and join us, where you can find even more funny stuff!
