Brevity is a single-panel newspaper comic strip created by Guy Endore-Kaiser and Rodd Perry. Brevity originally began on Comics Sherpa. It debuted in 55 newspapers on January 3, 2005. Today, Brevity is published in over 130 newspapers in the USA and Canada. There are currently four published collections and one treasury. The comic often features talking animals interacting with each other and with humans in otherwise mundane situations. For example one strip features a family of bears shopping for a new house, asking if the neighbors taste good. Another strip features a songbird complaining about a woman who's staring at him, but all she hears is beautiful singing. In the past few years the comics.com site has allowed visitors to submit comments on each strip.
