Daytripper #4

Count me among those that are waiting for the trade for Daytripper. I haven't read any recaps or spoilers for the first three issues so I didn't really know what to expect, but I found it to be a nice little stand alone story. It's a pretty basic life/death tale that could be seen as a little cliche, but when you combine it with the art of the brothers Ba and Moon complimented by the always perfect colors of Dave Stewart it makes for an excellent 22 page comic.

Daytripper 4

This is an interesting book for me. I wasn't blown away by the first issue, but I was intrigued by 2 and 3, and now 4 is back to stale for me. Bras "death" this issue was the dumbest one to me yet. I just hope something happens soon that brings it all together. because it's getting kinda stale to me. The art is anything but, however. Just great stuff from the brothers.

I don't know how to fully review this book. This issue did nothing for me, if the point of the review book would be to get me to pick up the next issues or in this case find the last 3 this book didn't do that for me. It couldn't even conjure the feeling to want to buy the trade. Based on that the issue was just flat and the story doesn't fully grow on me to something I want to care about and while the characters seem like flesh and blood their lives are boring and the death barely registers any time it happens. The art is alright but I'm not a moon/ba fan. It wasn't bad or good but it was better than the mediocre crap we review.

They've already said the twist is a HUGE one, and I bet it is, but it's just taking a long time to get there

Daytripper #4

I knew nothing about this series coming in, aside from the main character's name. During my initial read, the ending completely blew me away. I thought it was incredibly ballsy to kill the main character in the story four issues into a series.

Then I learned that Bras dies at the end of every issue. Well, that certainly takes away from the impact of that scene! Still, I will give the creators credit for putting together a single issue that really had an effect on me, especially since I am an expectant father, and one who is under a lot of stress at the present moment. You can really feel the tension building around Bras through the issue and then in one small moment in all comes crashing down on him.

The art was a perfect fit to the issue. It was a nice mix of cartoonish and realistic, and the artist is very capable of getting each character's emotions across to the reader.

I know this is part of a larger series and that there is some major twist at the end. I know some people did not like this issue as much as other ones. I know that some people thought the attempt at emotion resonance in this issue fell flat.

But fuck it. I liked this issue.

I am definitely checking it out... even though vampires have been done to death and I always get bamboozled... hopefully they put a different spin on it.
