The cover to Schappi. Against a bright green background sits a can like the kind that would contain food. Above the can's label is the author's name, Anna Haifisch. The label features a red, long-nosed creature with black eyes and drooping ears seeming to hold a shield-shaped logo reading, "Schappi" in its mouth. In its paws, with thin curved claws extending from the paws, it holds a yellow bowl full of mounds of something with a speckled texture.

Anna Haifisch

Schappi

On sale date: April 19, 2022

A collection of absurdist comics short stories navigating etiquette and diplomacy within the vicissitudes of the animal kingdom: from proud ostriches to racist mice, and delicious-looking weasels.

In Schappi, Anna Haifisch blurs the boundaries between humans and animals in subtle and absurd ways. In these five collected comics short stories, carnivores and herbivores meet at a disastrous congress of the animals; we get to know a merciless, art-collecting lizard; and are introduced to dancing ostriches and a melancholy, meditating octopus. With singular humor and charm, and a brilliant eye for color, Haifisch tells of the everyday struggle from the prairie to the drawing table, of self-imposed isolation and friendship. At the end of the day, there is hope, even for crying weasels. Haifisch's wry sense of humor reveals many truths lying underneath her absurdist wit. Printed in five gorgeous Pantone inks, Schappi will shine from a bookshelf like a mad husky's iris.

The first 150 preordered copies of Schappi will include an exclusive print designed and autographed by Anna Haifisch. Copies ordered after the release date will receive a print while supplies last, so preorder now!

"Haifisch's work is very funny [with] a charming, scratchy line and a faintly unsettling colour palette." — The Quietus
