On Wednesday DAYTRIPPER #1 by the brothers Bá and Moon hit the racks and has received some fabulous reviews.
Making iFANBOY’s “Pick of the Week” Conor Kilpatrick says, “DAYTRIPPER #1 is very contemplative. . . . Once I began reading what I found was the story of one day in the life of a man told with such sparse elegance and beauty that I was immediately enchanted. . . . The art . . . is phenomenal.”
While IGN calls it, “not a typical comic book. . . . There are no explosions or flashy costumes; it's a book about life. A book that forces you to slow down and think, challenging the convention of simply zipping through the issue and moving on to the next book in your stack. . . . [DAYTRIPPER] has me hooked for more. . . . A great book for those looking for something different in their comic book reading experience. Definitely give this book a shot.”
And BROKEN FRONTIER says, “DAYTRIPPER is a highly recommended series. The art is warm and beautifully expressive as Moon and Bá pull off some of the best facial ticks this side of Kevin Maguire, and the story is wistful and urgent at the same time, demanding your attention.”
As you know, DAYTRIPPER is about life--the life of obituary writer Brás de Oliva Domingos--the big moments, the quiet moments, the good and the bad.
With that in mind, If someone were to write your obituary tomorrow, how would you like to be remembered?
