Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I think this is the book i look most forward to this week. First issue was awesome and immensely refreshing. 

  2. I’m interested in the storytelling style of this book, after the last issue you can tell its a bit abstract. Which is AWESOME!

  3. I can’t wait to read this. Loved the first issue.

  4. I love their art and I love their storytelling but I hope every issue doesn’t follow the same trajectory as the first.

  5. @ Davetron, It won’t. Loved this one too and I am happy to see it getting like the fourth most pulls on the site. I’ve really gotten into these two since the last issue and I think this is the best work they’ve done. I also really look forward to seeing what else they come up with in the next few yeas.

  6. Usually I hate trade waiting but I think I would like this better all at once but I will flip through it in the store to make sure

  7. I can not say no to anything by the twins. My favorite artist will probably always be Allred, but they have shot up to numbers 2 and 3 in the past few years.

  8. Holy crap–best comic I read hands down. Just a few weeks ago I was really depressed at how Orixas were being depicted in Dr. Voodoo…then I read Daytripper 2–I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better depiction of Orixas in any pop medium.

  9. Great Cover, BTW. Still haven’t read it ,though. Our books ship tomorrow.

  10. Jesus Cristo!

    So so good. 

  11. Fantastic issue.

  12. I really enjoyed this. Not as much as the first issue, but still a great deal. 

  13. I don’t mean to be thick, but I’m not sure I understand what’s going on?  How do the end of the first two issues relate to each other?  Is he living other people’s lives as an obituary writer?  Alternate realities?  "You only live twice Mr. Bond?"

    Art was gorgeous, especially the goddess on page 1 and the awkward maleness of speedo man.

    Drakedangerz…agree w/ you. I really liked it, but not as much as issue #1.  Can’t wait to see if issue #3 continues the basic trend of the first two issues.

  14. @Urthona-The issues jump around and showcase a different story in the life of the main character. A series of one-shots essentially, travelling around in time it seems. So for all we know, the next issue could be him at age 27 or him at age 8.

  15. @Drake- Think Urth is referring to the mutliple deaths.

    I thought the duo might take this route at the begining of this issue. I think the purpose of the story is to show that life is the important part of one’s life. It doesn’t matter how or when you die, it just matters that you were able to appreciate the spectacular moments of your life.

    I’m quite surprised that there’s not more discussion of this issue. The art was fantastic, especially those underwater scenes. I enjoyed this issue more than the first.

  16. Glad I’m picking this up in issue, but if the quality holds, I will need this in a hardcover collection.

    Easily the best comic I’ve read this year . . . hahaha

  17. He’s like the Terminator, he keeps comming back.


    wow. I wanna go to Brazil now.

  18. @ Nathan — same here. Really want to see it.

    @  AlexG — I hear you on the Orixas part. That was a briliant part of the story.

  19. So… what happened at the end? I know Bras drowned. But did the fisherman push him in? Was it a fisherman at all given the spirit looking thing? Where was the girl? Was she the orixa? Too much is leftt unexplained in this issue.

  20. @ Zombox

    I don’t think he pushed him in, the fisherman was some kind of boatman (Charon anyone?) for Orixa. The boatman brought Bras to her, and he went to her.  I am guessing of his own free will.

  21. @ Zombox  That is actually up to us.

  22. I like Spoons concept there. Good thinking on you.
