    "Daytripper" is a comic that's surprised me. I knew that Moon and B working on a book together would be great, I just didn't expect this level of poetry and humanity, the sort of comic that can break my heart with its final words even if I see them coming. This is a masterpiece and we're all lucky to be here as it comes out one issue at a time, month after month. Read Full Review

    With only two more issues to go, Im already feeling slightly disappointed that weve got so little Daytripper left to enjoy. Its not often that a series with such an original concept comes along, and its even less common to see such weighty ideas explored with such a delicate touch, so I cant help but feel dismayed that this title is going to be limited to just ten issues. Still, I suppose I should take a hint from the books core message, and try to make the most of these final installments. Im sure the creators would rather I spent my time enjoying their work instead of worrying about the day when the journey will come to an end. Read Full Review

    Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon continue to cement their status as master storytellers and artists who have no real need of outside writers. Sorry Matt Fraction and Gerard Way, it's true. Daytripper #8 is beautifully rendered and full of a wide range of emotions. My predominate emotion at this point is sadness - sadness that the series will be over in two mere months.
