Originally serialized in ten issues by Vertigo throughout 2010, Daytripper has since become known as the master work of Brazilian cartoonists and brothers Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon. The gorgeously illustrated Daytripper employs (and in some cases innovates) the special language of comics to ends that are at once uplifting and devastating, creating a truly emotional journey into the soul of a man whose life, loves and home seem as intimate as your own.
Daytripper's original issues won Eisner, Harvey and Eagle Awards, and its paperback collection became a New York Times bestseller. Soon to be available as a hardcover for the first time in the US, Vertigo's Daytripper: The Deluxe Edition recompiles the story in an oversized edition with improved paper stock, a wraparound cover and a behind-the-scenes section containing sketches, layouts and other artwork by Bá and Moon from throughout the Daytripper creative process. Courtesy of Vertigo, ComicsAlliance is pleased to present an advanced look at that very special material in the gallery below.

Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá have come a long way in a short amount of time. The Brazilian twins landed in America to some acclaim with anthology projects from Image and Dark Horse. But it was "De:Tales - Stories from Urban Brazil" that really introduced the pair to industry, garnering critical acclaim from a variety of sources with a beautiful black and white tale that hinted at great potential waiting to be honed.
