They were two of Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 stars to watch. They've won multiple Eisners and have worked with the top names of comics and pop culture from Joss Whedon (Sugar Shock) and Mike Mignola (BPRD: 1947) to Gerard Way (Umbrella Academy) and Matt Fraction (Casanova). Now, Brazilian wonder twins Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá are back writing and drawing in a hauntingly lyrical series set in their native Brazil. With DAYTRIPPER, they follow in the tradition of Craig Thompson, Paul Pope and David Mazzucchelli - cartoonists at the top of their game making comics about the quiet moments that ask big questions. Brás de Oliva Domingos is an obituary writer with a famous father, a career he hates, and tons of questions. How does a person become a successful writer? How does a man get out of his father's shadow? But those concerns will dwarf the surprise he'll find in the first issue - a twist both he and readers will never see coming, which will grow into a mystery about the meaning of life itself.

BONUS REVIEW by MATT STREETS

Believe it or not, there are comics out there that don’t involve large men in tights punching the snot out of each other, even comics that don’t have gratuitous sex, gunplay or violence. Though Daytripper #1 does involve a shooting, it seems to serve a larger purpose of examining the small moments in our everyday lives, in this case, the life of a Brazilian obituary writer named Bras de Oliva Domingos. It’s hard to tell exactly where this series is headed, but in the hands of Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon, two of the hottest indie comic guys around right now, it is sure to be an intriguing ride. Recommended for fans of Love and Rockets, American Splendor, and good comics in general.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
