Berkeley Breathed Brings ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ To Bloom County

Berkeley Breathed has worked Star Wars into Bloom County in the past, so it’s no surprise to see him parody Star Wars: The Force Awakens as we countdown to the premiere.

First, there’s this new poster for Dork Wars: Adulthood Takes A Nap (the full version is available below and it’s hilarious).

But even more fun and interesting is the cover Breathed did for the Marvel Star Wars comic. He writes:

Greetings, arrested adolescent JediBloomers. As long as we’re being happily sucked into this week’s pop culture black hole… here ya go: Recently, the publisher of the Star Wars comic books requested a special “funny” promotional cover in honor of the coming movie. I cooly explained that LucasFilm would never, ever find anything I concocted funny. The comics guys found this idea absurd, nay, impossible — a sweet gentle thought. Below is the instantly-rejected cover art, lovingly referred to in legend as the “Pooper Scooper Trooper” edition… the fastest rejection in licensed comic book history. Ironic frosting: A producer for 1991’s Opus CBS TV Christmas special “A Wish For Wings That Work” was a smart, charming young executive named Kathleen Kennedy. She now runs Lucasfilm Ltd. Opus forgives you, old friend. Just bring us a good story, please. –bb
