Sad Animals on display in Chapel Hill Comics, from our 2008 Holiday Gift Guide.

We’re happy to announce another signing at Chapel Hill Comics: Adam Meuse, Creator of the runaway minicomic hit, Sad Animals! If you are one of the hundred or so folks who have picked up a copy of Sad Animals from us, come and get it signed. If you haven’t seen it yet, then come by and pick up a copy! It’s just four bucks, and I can’t recommend it highly enough for fans of offbeat humor!  Adam will also have copies of a new comic to debut at the signing! The new comic is called Social Insect, and here’s the cover!

Looks awesome.  I’m about to take my advance copy home and read it.  I’m excited!

Here’s our press release:

CHAPEL HILL, NC, MARCH 18, 2009 – Adam Meuse makes it fun to be sad with Sad Animals, his collection of….well, drawings of sad animals. And Chapel Hill Comics is thrilled to help inflict Meuse’s hilarious sadness on an unsuspecting public with a special signing on April 4.

Chapel Hill Comics owner Andrew Neal called Sad Animals “One of the best books of 2008.” “We sold more copies of this mini-comic in 2008 than anything except the Obama comic biography,” Neal says. “It’s the type of thing that people notice, pick up, flip through, and then burst out laughing.”

The Cary-based Meuse has earned a loyal following from Sad Animals, a look at human nature through the eyes of animals who are a little too aware of the absurdity of their lives. It’s a sweet, sometimes touching look at how life can get us down…and what the animals around you are really thinking.

Meuse will be signing and meeting fans from 2 4 p.m. at Chapel Hill Comics. Find out about the minicomic that’s got everyone talking – and meet the creator while you’re at it!
