Publisher Comments:

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.

Cheri P, December 9, 2014 (view all comments by Cheri P)
I liked this book, quite a bit, actually.... though it wasn't as powerful as I expected. Sometimes other peoples' reviews can do that, set you up for something that's more obtuse than it really is.

Daytripper is a gentle sort of novel, even though there is a lot of death. It's a thoughtful book about life, and why we live it, and what makes it important. It's a sad book, and yet as I finished the last page I was struck by how hopeful it all was, too.

I wonder, how will my obituary read? Who will note my passing? Will people focus on what I've done, or what I never managed to do?

A gorgeous and touching book dealing with the important moments of a person's life. The "Wonder Twins" have created a thoughtful and moving graphic novel.
