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

Untitled-1

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.

Vertigo Announces New ‘Vertigo Quarterly: CMYK’ Anthology Series

Vertigo CMYK
Vertigo

Part of the idea of an anthology is they break stories down to their basic components. They tell short stories that are often intended to represent a particular genre or storytelling device.

Perhaps that's the reasoning behind the title of Vertigo's new anthology series, Vertigo Quarterly: CMYK, which is set to debut this spring. The letters of the title refer to the four colors that were, due to printing limitations, the basis of all color in comics for decades. Creators including Jock, Fabio Moon, James Tynion IV, Martin Morazzo, and Tony Akins will contribute stories to the first issue, all of which will relate to the theme the color cyan.

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.

‘American Vampire’ Anthology To Feature Work From Rucka, Aaron, Cloonan, Moon, Ba & More

AV lede

While Scott Snyder's work on Batman has made him immensely popular among readers, the title that he first made his name on, and possibly the one most important to him, is American Vampire, his creator-owned series for Vertigo. Written by Snyder and illustrated by co-creator Rafael Albuquerque, American Vampire is the tale of Pearl, an aspiring actress turned into an ageless vampire in the 1920s. Through the lens of Pearl and her life, Snyder and Albuquerque explore the rise of America, from the 1920s up to, eventually, the present day.

The Eisner Award-winning series has been on hiatus since issue #34 in January, but to help fill the void for readers, Vertigo is releasing an American Vampire anthology, with nine short stories from an impressive line up of creators: Greg Rucka, Becky Cloonan, Jason Aaron, John Paul Leon, Francesco Francavilla, Gail Simone, Jeff Lemire, Gabriel Bá, Fábio Moon, Declan Shalvey and more. You can check out the full lineup, plus preview art from the issue, below.

Fabio Moon And Gabriel Ba Address The Violent Protests In Brazil

fabio-17junho01-en-1371505911

Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá are from São Paolo, Brazil. It's their home, where they were raised, and where much of their most personal comics work, like De:Tales and Daytripper, is set. They have a deep emotional attachment to the city and country they love. As such, when the recent recent protests across São Paolo -- stemming from a rise in bus fares that is seen by many in the country as a reflection of political corruption -- began to turn violent, the Brazilian twins were compelled to explore their feelings on the subject the way they so often do: through their art.
