Old Man, Young Man, Baby

Daytripper #4, by Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá

You may recall me mentioning that in the last issue the main character died at the end of this, after doing the same thing an issue previously. And he does it here again. In this story he is faced with awkwardly coinciding life moments – the wife going into labour with their first child just as his (famous novelist) dad dies of a massive heart attack. It is all very atmospheric and quietly affecting.

This is a strange title – it is billed as an ongoing series, yet it strikes me as one that would work well if it finished after issue 12 or so and was then collected into a book. But let us see how it develops.
