Daytripper #3

Daytripper has, in just three issues, easily leaped to the top of my favorite monthly comic book series being published today. Daytripper #3, subtitled "28", opens with a sad ending of a relationship, but the central character learns that his future isn't destined to be as bleak as the ending of this relationship suggests things may be. As I was reading Daytripper #3, I was thinking of a friend who has been going through an especially rough patch and I'm hoping that this person, after reading Daytripper #3, can also see the possibilities that the future holds.

Daytripper #3, is another beautiful, self-contained story written and drawn by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba, but with each issue, more of a bigger tapestry is being revealed. I'm not seeing how the individual issues are going to connect to this bigger picture yet, as I'm just enjoying each issue onto themselves, but I know that I'll be even more amazed with what Moon and Ba are doing with Daytripper when the connecting elements become apparent.
