There Is No One Way to Live Or Die: ‘Daytripper: The Deluxe Edition’ Sketchbook [Exclusive Art]


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.

Ba and Moon Deliver in Vertigo’s ‘Daytripper’

I hope some of the people who bought last month's issue on the strength of the plastic trinket that came with it actually read it -- in #4, the Superboy-Prime story that concludes this issue grabbed the metafictional insanity from the final sequence of "Legion of Three Worlds" and ran with it about as far as it can go. The sharpest mo...
