Brevity - strip by Dan Thompson
Type: Comic Strip
Available for print / Web / mobile
Brevity is not only the soul of wit, it's also not your normal comics fare. Available in both strip and panel format, Brevity carves out a unique niche for itself in the comics pages, winking sideways at fans of pop culture, wordplay, talking objects and hilariously awkward situations. The understated art and sly sense of humor make Brevity unlike anything else on the comics pages.
