Just finished reading the graphic novel DayTripper by FabioMoon & GabrielBra
..quite different from what i usually read..loved it! Thanks to a friend who lent me her copy.
will now hunt for one myself.
Daytripper starts of with Bras de Oliva Domingos, son of a famous Brazilian writer and a writer himself (he writes some thoughtful obituaries for the local paper). His mother(calls him “Little Miracle”) due to some incident during his birth.
One evening he has to attend a gala in his father’s honor. He gets there early and walks into a nearby bar for some cigarettes .. this results in his death during a holdup. theres an obituary.. and then.. the next chapter starts., the story continues as if the climactic event never happened and you get to see several vignettes from his life.. and severla other potential "end points" with obituaries. quite "trippy" :coffee:
Incidently Daytripper won the 2011 Eisner Award
