Daytripper by Fabio Moon & Gabriel Ba

The genesis of writing as an art is usually generated by the life authors live in. The writing process is shaped by family, friends, love, opportunities, and the idea of mortality. This is what this wonderful graphic novel is about. It’s a must-read for all.

While it deals mostly about death(s), it is not a morbid piece. It’s more nostalgic and a tad sentimental, really, because as the graphic novel states,

And sometimes we die to prove that we live.

What’s particularly special for me is how it incorporates the life of a writer, which I’m trying to be now. Sometimes it poses questions on the craft.

Sometimes, it just lets people in on lives of writers like me and our inability to believe we have something good to say.


This is definitely one of the most memorable graphic novels I’ve ever read. There are no metaphors, no allegories, no morals to tell.

It just tells life and how it is, how it could be, and how it could end. This novel is not just for writers. I’d recommend that you read this before you die.
