Vice Magazine Interviews Berkeley Breathed

Speaking of interviews with heartachingly talented comic strip creators, Vice has a great interview with Bloom County creator Berkeley Breathed. Asked how much he planned out the writing:

The problem is that you’re asking a guy who didn’t think of any individual strip or story line longer than it takes to read this sentence. I drew in a manic, sweat-flinging state of deadline panic EVERY week. Not most weeks. EVERY week. For ten years. I drew what occurred to me as I stared at the same blank strips I’d been watching for six days, and only because the plane that would deliver them to my syndicate editor was due to take off at 5:30 AM, about seven hours from that moment.
