A review by lookhome
Daytripper by Gabriel Bá, Fábio Moon


When was the last time you dreamt?

I rarely remember and yet Daytripper brought me to tears, in a comfortable, literal sense.

Dreams are part of our day to day vocabulary, especially if you like to read. Day dreams, night terrors, dream states, dreamscapes, and Morpheus/The Sandman all continue to play an important role in lives of readers. Paradoxically, dreams provide authors with a timeless resource. They are universally relatable and and yet magical, though all dreams are different, they are, in essence all the same and her lies this book's magic.

'We are such stuff as dreams are made on' Shakespeare

That quote is over 400 years old. And yet, technology hasn't been able to take away or diminish it.
It could be argued that Moon and Ba have taken this quote as the foundation of their story.

Dreams are one of the last undiscovered isles. They are personal yet universal. Rare and yet omnipresent.It's hard to properly convey the sensations you're bound to feel reading this graphic novel but I think Palahniuk said it best with: "This is your life and it's ending one minute at a time".
