Someone Well Ahead of Their Time

I just discovered that “My Comics Page” (http://www.mycomicspage.com) has archives of Berke Brethed’s “The Academia Waltz” — the strip he did for a university newspaper in the years before Bloom County.

In the strip which shows up in the mycomicspage archives for December 14, 2003 — and originally ran sometime in 1978 — shows someone more than 25 years ahead of their time. The strip in question shows someone trying to order a “Whopper hold the bun.” Clearly this character was into the low carb lifestyle way back in the late 1970’s.
