Opus ends, in a story book
Berkeley Breathed’s final Opus appeared today. The comic that appeared in newspapers directed readers to the Humane Society’s web site to see the final panel which depicted Opus in children’s storybook, “Goodnight Moon” by Margaret Wise Brown. Berkeley’s own web site appeared to be struggling under the traffic load.
Berkeley reports on his website that the contest to guess Opus’ final resting place received about 6000 entries which included an entry suggesting Opus would replaced the sequined eagle on Elvis’ jumpsuit whilst the “king” spends the eternities on the potty.
As soon as the winner page loads (taking forever, I’ll post the winner).
Update: Berkeley’s site is still slammed. Here are the details from his site:
- Out of the 6,000 entries, 55 guessed the ending correctly
- Stephan Allen of Lutz, FL is $10,000 winner – or should we say – the animal shelter of his choice is the winner.
- 10 other people will get signed copies of the OPUS: 25 Years of His Sunday Best
- If you didn’t know, Opus is hidden in each of Berkeley’s children’s books
