Starred Review. A stunning, moving story about one man's life and all the possibilities to be realized or lost along the way. Brothers Bá and Moon take readers through the life of a man named Brás de Oliva Domingos, selecting a series of individual events of great significance to Brás, showing each as if it could be the day Brás dies, and in so doing creating an examination of family, friendship, love, art, life, and death that urges the reader to turn the same careful inspection on their own life. Central is the relationship between Brás, who is first seen as a disgruntled writer stuck in a job writing obituaries, and his father, Benedito de Oliva Domingos, a famous author. Although each section can be years apart, themes all beautifully tie in throughout the work; characters develop as more is learned about them as the story jumps back and forth in time; and moments of Brás' life take on entirely new meanings as events from his possible pasts or futures cast them into new lights. 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, adding in touches of the surreal when the story calls for it. This is an intense work that promises to bring the reader along on a personal and rewarding journey. (Feb.)

The twist on the story is that at the end of every issue, Bras dies. Then the next issue he's back. The whole book is a reflection on what life really means, and what's important in it, so these 'deaths' serve as a good way to reinforce how it could all end any second. However, I have to admit, some of the deaths come off as forced, and take away from the quality of the book. Still, this was an enjoyable read.
I don't own the TPB, but I think the hardcover edition is a must-have. If you're tired of superhero crossovers, make yourself a favor and buy this. The art is gorgeous and the plot is incredible touching.
This book is just as beautiful as a graphic novel can get.
It will draw you in, trigger your deepest memories, make you gasp for the air while at the bottom of the ocean asking yourself – am I still dreaming..?!
Wake up reader! Go on with your life, never forget this book! “...because you only get one chance”.
Thank you Fabio! Thank you Gabriel! and please, may we have some more…
Daytripper is the story about one man's life living in the shadow of his father (a world famous author). He struggles to free himself from the shadow of his father, make a name for himself, experience love and loss, all while dying on each of the most important days of his life. His death always revealing something about how we evaluate our own lives, success and failures. It makes us examine our own situation to rethink our values and what we consider to be important or hinge our happiness on. By the end I was in tears (in a good way).
