CBR Review: Daytripper #8

I recently reviewed Daytripper #8 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Brás de Oliva Domingos, the protagonist of Daytripper, doesn’t appear in this issue and it’s the best so far. Instead of focusing on an event in Brás’ life, Moon and Bá focus on events where he’s absent. His lack of presence being his presence. While he’s never shown on panel, he’s felt throughout the entire issue as his wife, Ana, and son, Miguel, miss him while he’s doing a book tour. It’s a heartfelt issue and, if you’ve read Daytripper so far, you know how it’s going to end, but that doesn’t stop you from getting sucked in and feeling the hurt and heartbreak on that final page. That Moon and Bá can elicit such a strong reaction is an amazing and wondrous thing."
