Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá pull at my heartstrings with every issue of DAYTRIPPER. This month is no different. At the age of 41, today is to be a celebration of life as Brás’ son is about to be born, but when he arrives at the hospital he finds more than he expected. In a magnificent issue that further explores the relationship between fathers and sons DAYTRIPPER #4 is not to be missed. Here’s a look at the first two pages (on sale March 10th).
DAYTRIPPER is one of the most poignant and emotional stories I’ve read in a long time. The relationships between family, friends, and lovers are intimate, personal and extremely relatable. In issue #3, on sale next week, Brás is a 28 year old man who, in the opening scene, has a terrible fight with his girlfriend and they break up—I know I’ve been there—it’s heartbreaking. The 3 pages I’ve selected below follow that scene and speak volumes.
On Wednesday, we teased a few images from a project Jim Lee, Rebekah Isaacs, Fabio Moon, Ryan Kelly, John Paul Leon, Lee Bermejo, Philip Bond, Eduardo Risso and Dave Gibbons are all working on for Vertigo in 2010. Well, if they piqued your interest, you’ll be happy to know, (if you haven't guessed already or were sly like CBR/ROBOT 6), they’re from DMZ #50. That’s right, I said 50.
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.”
Earlier today you read about the evolution of the cover to DAYTRIPPER #1 (on sale today) by editor Pornsak Pichetshote. Well, now it's time to check out some coverage in case you missed it: NEWSARAMA talks DAYTRIPPER with Bá and Moon.
I could tell you a lot about Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá: the fact that after all this time, I still can’t tell them apart over the phone; the fact that they are very, very proud of this; that they spent a good chunk of our working relationship imagining I looked like an Asian version of fellow Vertigo editor Will Dennis (who’s Irish, which makes the visual even better); or that I think I owe them a copy of Asterios Polyp (Dammit, now I went and reminded them…), but nothing sums them up better than the cover to DAYTRIPPE
