Daytripper by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba

Daytripper, by brothers Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, is a graphic novel about understanding death and letting go of life. The story centers on Brás de Olivia Domingos, a struggling obituary writer who happens to be the son of a famous author. Each chapter of the book focuses on Brás at a different age in his life in which missed opportunities, second chances and coincidences give him clarity as to what life is about. In each chapter, these revelations come only shortly before his death. As sad as the book may sound, it is a beautifully told story that will make you aware of your own life decisions and how they affect those around you. Although the subject matter may seem too serious for the graphic novel format, the illustrations do a great job of telling the story. This book would be an excellent introduction to anyone who wanted to start reading graphic novels.
