Odoyá, Iemanjá. Thank you for Daytripper.

February 2nd, Iemanjá's day.
It is also the day that the collected edition of Daytripper comes out.



There's not much left to say about the story, about the book. People love behind the scene facts and informations, and that's why we keep this blog, but I don't feel good about explaning the stories, telling my reasons for doing this or that, because I believe it weakens the story. I tried to say the least I could before the series started in December of 2009 and I didn't want to keep talking about it during the series. Today the book will be at the stands of comicshops throughout the USA, a few days later on every major bookstores of the country and soon enough world wide.

I'd like to think the book can speak for itself. That's what good stories do.

Iemanjá day

I hear about authors who don't read their own stories once they're ready, directors who don't watch their movies. I love comics and I look back to everything I do. I love what I do. It helps me keep track of where I came from. If I do these books I do today and tell the stories I do, it's because of all this other stuff I've done before and I can never forget that.



If you have read the series and liked it, tell a friend about it, or even give it as a gift to someone you know. If you haven't read it, I hope you do. This story represents our love for comics and I'd love if you could help us spread this love. All we need is love.

I just finished reading the Daytripper paperback collection and I am breathless. So marvelous that I am practically speechless. Thank you for creating this book -- and thanks to the person that recommended it to me. I'll be sharing the news about this on my blog tomorrow.

Santa Clara clareou, como diria aquela música. Ah, há alguns anos falei com vocês pessoalmente, mas haviam acabado meus gibis e não pude mostrar nada do meu trabalho. Agora estão digitalizados. Ei-los:
