I went to the LCS and almost got in an accident in their parking lot. Some jackass was sitting in the drive, then decided to back up to try to get a closer parking spot than he was almost pulling in to. His backup light weren't working. As I didn't know he was backing up, I was still coasting forward, thinking he was going to park. I had to blow my horn to get him to stop. I don't think he was looking behind. When we had both parked, I politely told him that his backup lights weren't working. He gave me a non-committal shrug like he already knew that.

Should I have killed him?

After the comics shop, I went to get lunch. I stopped at Popeye's Chicken and got their chicken nuggets. Ate them. Not filling at all. So I stopped at Del Tacos and got a cheeseburger. Pulled up to the drive through window, and the woman called me Hon. I like that. She wasn't from the southern part of the country where they say that all the time. She was nice looking. I stared her right in the eye, which I like to do to women sometimes. Makes them nervous. Nah, I'm not a stalker. Just like to act like one sometimes. In any case, she maybe liked it...her pointers stiffened right up.

Seriously, should I have killed that guy in the parking lot?

After lunch, I went to my favorite health food store. (Yeah, kinda odd that I go to a health food store after eating fast food.) They were closed. Not just closed as in not open. Closed as in out of business. Dammit.

Now I really want to go back and kill that guy.

On my way home, I stopped at a Dollar General store. Dollar General is quite common in my area. They are not a dollar store, but they do have bargains. Last week, they had some Fruit of the Loom Marvel Super-Hero T-shirts for $6. A couple weeks before that, they had Breyer's Ice Cream pints for $2.35. (I had Butter Pecan.) And for the last several weeks, they had Gemstone Disney Comics for $1. One buck for comics that were cover priced at $6.95, $7.95, and $8.95! It appears that all the stores got the same comics, but different stores have none at all. This one had none. Dammit!

I think next week I'll get to the LCS early and wait for that guy to show up. I'll ask if he got his backup lights fixed. If he says no, what do you think Imma gonna do?

The comic? 5. The lyrics made no sense, and the beat wasn't hot enough to dance to.


Bonus points for mentioning Dollar General, thats where I work. :-)

I read this, and I'm back so I thought I'd play.

Daytripper #4 "41"

[spoiler]Bras dies at the end. [/spoiler]

Something that sounds so big is really nothing of the sort, and it's fairly obvious to anyone who's been reading every issue that the most important days of Bras' life have all been capped off with him thinking up his own obituary. Asking himself how he'd be remembered. Seems like a weird thing for anyone to do, but Bras is introspective and constantly seems unsure of himself. So why would the creators have said that this is a comic about life?

Because every issue shows us one of the key days in a man's life and here we've got the day Bras becomes a father, and loses his own. The dialogue isn't perfect, but it's certainly easy to hear the characters speaking, albeit in heavily accented English. The story is slight but with plenty of room to breathe and more than any issue since the first it provides fuel for further stories.

That the story is so easy to read is helped a great deal by the art. I doubt anyone expected a Moon\Ba comic to be ugly, but this is career best work from the boys with soft colours making the grounded art pop far more than the OTT trip that Casanova was or the demented pop art in Umbrella Academy. God it's a pretty book to look at and ultimately it's the prettiness that helps overcome the slim story and slows the book down. It makes 22 pages feel like 24 hours and it's a joy to read.

Not exactly heavyweight stuff but it's pretty enough for that not to matter.

8/10

Daytripper #4(of10)

I have really really liked this book so it bums me out a little that I didn't like this issue as much as the 3 before. It is not that i disliked this, it just fell a little flat with me. I am not sure I can handle 6 more issues of Bras dying before I see some sort of explanation of what the hell is going on, is he a symbolic everyman and these are just random stories or is he not physically dying and we are seeing moments where he is dying inside? I will keep on buying this because my interest is piqued just enough and the art is damn good but I have reservations and I hope that this is not one of those books where it ends unexplained and the reader gets to choose their own ending or portray it ion their own way... I am not that imaginative and a little dumb so hopefully they spell it out for me. The art is just as good as the other issues, I can't explain why I like it but i know that I just do and that is my professional opinion. I think my main problem is that this needed more Bras being run over by a van and none of this cliched he died of a broken heart crap.

STORY - 7

ART - 9

OVERALL - 7.5
