Damn This is probably the most profound story I ve read in at least a couple of years Comic or otherwise.Keep in mind that this is a story about stories About beginnings and endings These things are close to my heart.
Let s get this out of the way up front Daytripper may be the best graphic novel I ve ever had the pleasure to read Consider yourselves warned.Perhaps Daytripper s biggest success is that it saves itself from being cliche All the things that people want to say about it e.g The book is life affirming or The book shows that death is just another part of life are exactly the kinds of things that could be said about that new movie that you don t want to see, the one that is bound to be an oasis of se [...]
Life turns on little moments Moments that you dwell on and play over and over again in your mind in the infinite ways that they could have resolved themselves.What do you do next Do you go talk to the girl Do you walk out of the shop Could this be one of those pivotal moments Twin brothers, Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba, have crafted a wonderful graphic novel that centers on the life of one man, Bras de Olivias Dominguez Each issue contains a key segment in Bras life and each one ends in his death D [...]
Not to be mean or hell, you know, yeah, kind of pretty much to be mean , but I m not really sure that all these people falling all over themselves over Daytripper have really read enough comics, or enough books, or have lived enough, or have gone outside enough in general.Wait Come back I m sorry I didn t mean it.I mean, I know you ve read enough stuff I know you re a totally great human being Really, I do everyone says so And it s totally absolutely fine if you like this comic Or if you love th [...]

Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum She was a day tripper, a one way ticket yeah If I finally get off my duff and write this review will I stop singing this song Please Some may say Daytripper was a story about death But in actuality, it was really about life but death has a big part in it It was about searching for the moment that won t fade The moment we all search for It was about realizing that in order to go after your dreams you must live your life It was about how we carry our family [...]
A recommendation from Craig Thompson was good enough for me to make me order this hidden gem Hidden might seem a bit of a stretch, given that the album was on the New York Times bestseller list, but it makes me wonder sometimes why we don t turn into movies these kind of gentle, ordinary people discovering the wonder and the pain of the world we live in, instead of CGI heavy Batmans and Avengers Thompson is the author of Habibi and Blankets , two of my all time favorites adult sequential artbook [...]
Br s de Oliva Domingos life began 28 years ago and it ended on a Friday morning as he was hit by a truck on his way for his morning coffee He was always there when his friends needed him, was close to his family, and he, like everyone else, was trying to find his way in the desert, looking for that oasis we like to call love Someone stop Br s de Oliva Domingos He s the obituary writer and he is writing about only himself on a fierce ego trip I would rather that was the story It might as well hav [...]
Disclaimer Even if you don t read graphic novels, pause to read this.Here s the deal I spoilered quotations once again just in case people don t want me to steal the joy of reading them for the first time on the actual pages they originate from I want you to read this book and in order to convince you, I want you to read the quotations obviously, that s why they re included So I advise you randomly select two, read just those, and let the rest swoop in from the beautiful pages of this graphic no [...]
This book is absolutely, breathtakingly gorgeous Seriously I m talking watercolor sunsets out the wazoo Woowee For all the lush scenery, we have to thank, not either of the authors, but colorist Dave Stewart If only, if only the concept and storyline were as well done as the pink and yellow clouds drifting lazily over the ocean.The main character dies A lot Once as a kid Once as an old man And many, many times in between.I get it Life is beautiful Death is sad But starting each story knowing wha [...]

An absolutely GORGEOUS volume, with a beautiful story to go along with it Uniquely told, this poignant tale will affect you Don t miss out
I was going to give this a 3 Star to being withinly because it just didn t make any sense and the puzzle wasn t coming together for me Alas once again my impatience was over come by an emotional ending similar to the film Big Fish by Tim burton It s a beautiful ending and it put the story into perspective and it also put my own thoughts into perspective It s not a long story by any means It s full of lots of long stories about a man named bras Different events through out his life and in those m [...]
While reading this, I was reminded of the title So Many Ways to Begin, though this is So Many Ways to End Beautiful story, beautifully rendered, and with a perfect ending I d love to quote the ending, but it should be experienced in its own time and setting.
Brazilian twin brothers Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba created this beautiful meditation on life and death and love and art and fathers and sons and friendship There s some magical realism in it, just enough, and is gorgeously and romantically conceived and executed Fundamentally allegorical, philosophical, and yet hard to put down Not primarily chronological of a meditation on meaning than a focus on plot Lovely, powerful and for me, at least , often pretty moving.On second read, completed October [...]
A sad, well written book A little deeper than you might expect from a GN but well done.
My name is Br s de Oliva Domingos, and I m a dreamerWhat my dreams really show me is what my life can be once I open my eyesMy dreams tell me who I am Image from i assets images S photo.This Eisner award winning graphic novel was my latest vehicle used to explore this genre, and it took me on quite a trip At first, I wasn t sure what was happening in the story or where it would lead, which was nothing new for me I m often clueless at the start of a book and can only hope all will become clear by [...]
I am absolutely sure that loads of readers will love this graphic novel and that it deserves better than what I could say about it The weaving of well worn story lines into one whole is done artfully with some good moments, text and art matching nicely, and with some clever presentation However, I found the writing itself laden with superficial self importance that can only come when a writer writes about being a troubled writer, sort of Latino Indie Film existential bombast if that s possible c [...]
This is the life of Bras de Oliva Domingos, told in chapters which single out a memorable year in his life, jumping from his life at age 32 to his life age 11 to his life age 76 And at the end of each chapter, Bras dies it s a nuance that sounds strange here but makes sense in the book.Bras is an obituary writer aching to become a respected novelist like his father, a world famous writer, who casts a long shadow across his son Meanwhile we see Bras life filled with characters like an ex girlfrie [...]
A lot of people seem to be REALLY inspired by this graphic novel Maybe because it tells a kind of story that graphic novels usually don t a story about everyday life and the special moments like the first kiss or meeting your soul mate for the first time, or loosing your parent That formula really hasn t been used in many graphic novels, true But have been used time and time again in movies and books and movies and books and movies and books I don t know, maybe I just didn t feel the story t [...]
Wow I m not sure how to put into words what I just finished reading I m not even quite sure why I m feeling like this but I really want to crawl into some little space and just bawl like a baby I will not even attempt to describe this book I enjoyed reading each chapter, some hitting me like a giant wave, others feeling a bit forced, and others just good in their flow of the story And I wasn t sure where this all was flowing to, so I was very ready to give this a 3.5 star rating But that ending [...]
I never picked up this book and bought it because of the cover art and the description for some reason, it seemed like it wouldn t interest me However, a good friend gave it to me to read, and has consistently recommended good books to me, so I gave it a chance, and I am so glad that I did The art was incredibly gorgeous, and the story was touching honestly, this is the first graphic novel that ever made me tear up It s rare for me these days to find a book that I wish hadn t ended when I finall [...]

Elegant, both in words and drawing This story examines the value of a life, told through time bending the date of death of a newspaper obituary writer Emotional on many levels, the piece that strikes me the hardest is how obituaries are for the living, as if we put a stationery seal on the envelope at the end of a loved one s life Last summer, someone I once loved very much died Here is his obituary was born on April 5, 1970 and passed away on Saturday, July 2, 2011 was a resident of San Francis [...]

Daytripper moved me so much, I was not moved at all, I was reminded I was reminded how magical the smell of a hand rolled cohiba, the bitter taste of cachaca, and a dimly lit bar makes my brain feel so loose and heavenly inside my head A poignant story, with illustrations so fluid and seamless they fill the tiny spaces between thoughts to make the whole experience just, BEAUTIFUL I was left with the feeling of hanging on, ever so carefully, balanced safely, precisely, but defiantly on the edge, [...]
