Item Details

Random House, Inc.
The acclaimed 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 issue – 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 issue 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.

Baker & Taylor
Presents key moments in the life of Brâas de Oliva Domingos, a Brazilian writer and sometime journalist, and the son of a prominent author, as if each episode would turn out to be the day in which he was about to die.

ALmost all of the interwoven short stories ends with the same gimmick, it's not very well executed as narrative, and gets tired. The art is ok and if you are looking for more serious alternative story telling in comics you might like this more than I did. 40 years ago it would have been groundbreaking. Today it need more work.

One of the best graphic novels I have read in a long time. Great storytelling and solid plot. It'll leave you wondering.

Poignant and powerful, this is the story of a life, told through vignettes of some of our most important days: the birth of a child, meeting loves, and facing death. More importantly, it's about living your life even though death surrounds us. I picked this up because of Gabriel Ba's work on The Umbrella Academy ... this makes him a force in his own right.
