What are the most important days of your life? Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba answer that question in the critical and commercial hit series that took the industry by storm, winning praise from such comics veterans as Terry Moore, Craig Thompson and Jeff Smith. Follow aspiring writer Bras de Oliva Domingos as each chapter of DAYTRIPPER explores a completely different moment in his life. Moon and Ba tell a beautifully lyrical tale chronicling Domingos's entire existence— from his loves to his deaths and all the possibilities in between. Introduction by Craig Thompson (BLANKETS). Collects Daytripper #1-10
A stunning, moving story about one man's life and all the possibilities to be realized or lost along the way. Brothers B and Moon take readers through the life of a man named Br s de Oliva Domingos, selecting a series of individual events of great significance to Br s, showing each as if it could be the day Br s dies, and in so doing creating an examination of family, friendship, love, art, life, and death that urges the reader to turn the same careful inspection on their own life. Central is the relationship between Br s, who is first seen as a disgruntled writer stuck in a job writing obituaries, and his father, Benedito de Oliva Domingos, a famous author. Although each section can be years apart, themes all beautifully tie in throughout the work; characters develop as more is learned about them as the story jumps back and forth in time; and moments of Br s' life take on entirely new meanings as events from his possible pasts or futures cast them into new lights. Moon and B 's artwork is as impressive as their writing, and aided by colorist Dave Stewart the artists/writers render gorgeous cities and landscapes from Brazil across several decades, adding in touches of the surreal when the story calls for it. This is an intense work that promises to bring the reader along on a personal and rewarding journey.
