about this book

A Library Journal 2011 Best Book — Graphic Novel

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.

“An experience that will resonate with you long after you have put the book down.”- Becky Cloonan, illustrator of Demo
