From the Publisher
The Eisner Award winning DAYTRIPPER follows Bras de Olivias Dominguez during different periods in his life, each with the same ending: his death.
DAYTRIPPER follows the life of one man, Bras de Olivias Dominguez. Every chapter features an important period in Bras' life in exotic Brazil, and each story ends the same way: with his death. And then, the following story starts up at a different point in his life, oblivious to his death in the previous story-and then also ends with him dying again. In every chapter, Bras dies at different moments in his life, as the story follows him through his entire existence-one filled with possibilities of happiness and sorrow, good and bad, love and loneliness. Each story rediscovers the many varieties of daily life, in a story about living life to its fullest-because any of us can die at any moment.
About the Author
Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba are twin brothers, born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where they live until this day. They have their friends and their family; it's their home.
They have been telling stories in comic book form for almost fifteen years, and their work has been published in France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Japan, Germany, as well as in the U.S. and Brazil. They like their coffee black, with no sugar, so that the taste is strong and memorable. They believe stories should taste equally strong and be just as memorable. They work with a fresh pot that's always handy to make sure they never forget that.
"A stunning, moving story about one man's life and all the possibilities to be realized or lost along the way. . . . Moon and Bá'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. . . . This is an intense work that promises to bring the reader along on a personal and rewarding journey."—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"It's a comic that lingers in the head, with powerful writing and vivid art that are a pleasure to behold. . . . The main character dies again and again, forcing readers to contemplate the fragility of life."—USA TODAY/Pop Candy
"Every bit of this book was perfectly executed, from the way the story was presented to the art chores to Dave Stewart's ungodly coloring abilities and on and on. . . . A rousing success."—AIN'T IT COOL NEWS
