They were two of Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 stars to watch. They've won multiple Eisners and have worked with the top names of comics and pop culture from Joss Whedon (Sugar Shock) and Mike Mignola (BPRD: 1947) to Gerard Way (Umbrella Academy) and Matt Fraction (Casanova).

Now, Brazilian wonder twins Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá are back writing and drawing in a hauntingly lyrical series set in their native Brazil. With DAYTRIPPER, they follow in the tradition of Craig Thompson, Paul Pope and David Mazzucchelli – cartoonists at the top of their game making comics about the quiet moments that ask big questions.

Good Start to Brazilian Twins' Series 0

First Impressions:  A Vertigo title, by Brazilian cartoonists (and twin brothers) Moon and Ba -- Daytripper is about a man who is despondent about his life and wistfully looks back and remembers when he just got out of college and felt life was full of promise.   These kinds of thoughts hit him as he turns 32.   He's a writer of obituaries.   His desk is strewn with photos and bios of men who made something of themselves, living long and fruitful lives.   Yet he reflects that he writes more of ...
