This Just In: Post to Drop 'Brevity'

By Michael Cavna

Tomorrow, a Readers' Note in The Post will announce that a sixth feature, the single-panel "Brevity" by Guy & Rodd, will be dropped from the paper's print comics section come March 30. Comic Riffs has previously reported on the other five comics slated to be dropped. All will be available on

So, no change on the Editor's decision over which comics to keep in print? After all of the noise on this site?

And, why another strip? Is room that big of a deal?

I only read my cartoons online; as a senior they are important but I have to choose what I can afford. I read some on WP, some on my local paper's site and still more on 2 online sites (about 3 dozen in all-still much less than what are available). Some are preferred because they are beautifully drawn, others because they are clever or have intriguing threads (or a combo). There are some that I read just to more easily voyage from one strip to another (Norm and some others on If WP drops this very clever strip it will be missed but I currently read it on and just regret that it is one that is shown too small on Sundays.

And another one bites the dust. Geez, when it will it end. Although I think Brevity was rotating with Close to Home, and was just added to the Post in the last year or so.

Michael, are the readers going to get any say in this? It seems pretty apparent that Judge Parker should stay, but will it?

I'm wondering if this is another slot dropped, or if they're just dropping the rotating bit?

Because really, if it's the latter, Close to Home is so much worse...

I draw Brevity. As much as we liked that it showed up in print, it was kind of a waste because I only went to D.C. once last year.

To vldazzle: on the right of the Sunday strip online is a magnifying glass that will enlarge it.
