Daytripper

by Fábio Moon & Gabriel Bá

741.5973 M778d

 

Told in a series of hypothetical deaths befalling a São Paulo obituary writer, Daytripper gracefully reminds us of the impermanence of everything and the importance  of recognizing the beauty in everyday interactions with the world and with each other.

 

Written in graphic form by twin brothers Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, Daytripper both looks and reads beautifully. Soft lines and soft colors add a dream-like quality to the work which invokes a feeling of memory and nostalgia.

 

Both avid comic readers and people who have never read a comic in their life would enjoy and be touched by Daytripper, a heartfelt allegory about the beauty and fragility of everything we experience and how that helps to write the story of our lives.
