Once upon a time, the word “mixtape” meant an audio cassette with a very personal selection of songs. Frequently, the songs had nothing in common except for the fact that the person who put them together loved every one of them.

Manta Ray’s Mixtape is a bit like that. This slim volume of “graphic shorts” – that’s short stories told using graphics – is full of beautiful illustrations and stories that range from wistful to creepy.

So far, Mixtape was only available online, but Bengaluru-based Manta Ray’s Pratheek Thomas is coming down to Mumbai this weekend, and he’s carrying a bunch of real, hold-it-in-your-hand copies Mixtape and Twelve Preludes.

These graphic novels will be launched at library and cafe Leaping Windows in Versova, Mumbai on 4 May and if you are already into reading them online and want a signed copy of it, placing a pre-order will be a good idea.
