According to National Public Radio, Breathed won a Pulitzer prize for "Bloom County" in 1987. Two years later, he stopped creating the comic strip.
The comic strip will be seen only on Facebook and will be seen on a "reasonably regular" basis. Breathed said that he "will draw because it's fun," AP reported.
