Comic recommendation of the day
Daytripper by Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá
Daytripper tells the story of Bràs de Oliva Domingos. Every issue of the miniseries focuses on a different pivotal moment of his life. The moments may be about meeting a lover or his relationship with his father or with finally getting a book published. There is no order to the moments. And together they tell the story of a life.
They also tell the story of his death. Actually, deaths. For each issue also shows him die and asks what if his life had ended there. It doesn’t end there. Or at least it might not end there. For we see him alive at other times to die other deaths.
It is a weird and powerful story told in fragments, fragments that don’t seem to fit together but somehow do. That somehow add up to a life. One of the best comics of the decade.
