“In cities, no one notices specific dying. Dying is a quality of the air.” – Don Delillo, White Noise
Black Mumba is a collection of short stories set in the city of Mumbai, India. The stories are all told through the eyes of a weathered police inspector in a familiar 40s crime noir aesthetic. But in Black Mumba, there are no criminals to catch or villains to foil. The city of Mumbai itself is the quarry – the bleak, weird and yet hopeful nature of life on its streets is at the heart of this collection.
This anthology collects the four stories shown below in over 80 pages and includes bonus art from some of India’s best comic book artists.
