Cartoons and caricatures are popular means of visual comment and commentary. It is the rare paper that doesn’t have them (Mint, for instance, has a weekly cartoon Drawbridge, by the redoubtable Jayachandran Nanu). In an attempt to push the boundaries of what traditionally passed for visual comment, the paper is now delighted to announce the launch of The Small Picture, a full page comic strip op-ed (see Page 23). The Small Picture is created exclusively for Mint by Manta Ray, a small indie graphic novel studio. It will appear every Wednesday—a doff of the hat to popular comic book culture where new issues traditionally appear in stores on Wednesdays.
