Overview

Brevity is "laugh-out-loud funny." —Michael Price, co-executive producer, The Simpsons

In the world of Brevity, you're either driving in the car-pool lane or the "weirdo with no friends lane."

With the third Brevity comic collection, creators Guy Endore-Kaiser and Rodd Perry combine their satirical tendencies with a minimalist illustration style to create a unique critique on popular culture.

From chronicling the Penguin Olympics to revealing the violence associated with creamed corn, Brevity is not only the soul of wit, but a sharply intelligent, amusingly idiosyncratic, and uproariously funny read that dares you to ponder the facts behind Barbie and Ken's breakup. (Hint: It has something to do with a major component in their relationship being made out of plastic.)

Brevity offers readers a slightly skewed and diversely satirical view of the world as inhabited by an array of nerds, animals, socks, jocks, superheroes, historical icons, and fairy tale favorites.
