Daytripper Blog Post

Daytripper portrays a story of life, a story of reality, a story filled with genuine emotions humans are subjected to experience.  The creators of this comic, Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba, know how to express human relationships and the way they affect the people involved. Every frame exposes the feelings each individual felt through important events in the protagonist’s life.


In this frame, the mother of the protagonist tells the son that his child is born. The background helps set the mood of the event.

  1. I do not comment, however I read a great deal of comments on Daytripper Blog Post | Technoscience /
    Ecomateriality / Literature. I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay.
    Is it just me or do a few of these comments come across like they are left by
    brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional places, I would
    like to follow you. Could you list of every one of your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook
    page or twitter feed?
