Review
This span of the daily strip shows it settling into the sweetest spot of its nine-year run, as evidenced by Breathed winning the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 1987 (which spawned mild controversy because the strip appeared in the funny pages, not the op-eds). Central to these years was the formation of Opus and crew’s spandex-metal band, Deathtöngue, its wimp-out name-change to Billy and the Boingers, and its subsequent demise when Bill the Cat was caught being wholesome with an upstanding Christian woman. The crosshairs of Breathed’s social commentary would remain near-perfectly aligned until the strip’s end in 1989. -- Chipman, Ian (Reviewed 06-01-2011) (Booklist, vol 107, number 19, p50)
