    I’ve just emerged from the longest dry spell of reading any quality books I’d rate four stars or above in years - it’s been over a MONTH! So thank goodness that a new Giant Days arc drops just when I think I’ve got anhedonia. Seven - SEVEN! - books in and this title is still first class all the way. HOW ARE YOU DOING THIS, YOU MAD GENIUS JOHN ALLISON!!!?! Seriously, no other comics series I’ve read has been this consistently good. In Vo...

    Slowly rolling down the street of my delayed graphic reviews, and catching up with series that push new volumes out faster than I can read 'em. Giant Days has been my companion in my shortish breaks I spend near the dumpster in order to get fresh air into my lungs through cigarette filters. It has been so hot lately that I probably spend more time there than I should, but on the other hand - you can't do shit when you are spending your hours in t...

    Volume 7 of John Allison’s Giant Days is the tale of three roommates Susan, Esther, and Daisy, in their second year at uni, Sheffield. Susan goes home for Christmas to deal with all of her sisters and to try and reunite her parents. Esther becomes a supermarket protestor, and Daisy fights with Ingrid. Is that all?! Just try it and see what I mean when I say it is about not much and is still great.Allison is consistently funny with the dialogue,...

    3.75/5⭐I had only one laugh out loud moment in this volume but I still really enjoyed it. This is a series that I really never get tired of I’m always so excited to read them and I can’t wait for the next one. But now I have to wait till August to read the next one. 3.75/5⭐️I had only one laugh out loud moment in this volume but I still really enjoyed it.

    Still a fabulous series! Not sure how Allison manages to keep coming up with these silly shenanigans.I have given this 4 stars because I’m not ‘feeling’ the relationship between Daisy and Ingrid. Looking forward to see if Susan and McGraw rekindle their romance, and I bloody love Esther. Why couldn’t I have been her growing up?

    This graphic novel series never disappoints. 5 stars!!Like all of my reviews this is a continuation in a series so I can’t say much. It is the best young adult/adult sitcom I’ve ever witnessed. I wish it was a real t.v. show. Daisy, Susan and Esther are so funny. I just absolutely love them together. They are friendship goals. The men in their lives Ed and McGraw help with their comedy and the situations they find themselves in gives me life....

    Don't mind me. I can't be objetive with these girls. I've just fallen for the Three of Them. The mess they are, how they grow up in each volume. Their University shennanigans, their friends, their families, everything is utter perfection. It is nostalgia of college years- how I wish my friends back then had been a bit like them- and current trendy problems, Irony and reality and a bit of mischief.One of life simple pleasures:)

    Another fantastic volume of Giant Days. This is fast becoming the comicbook I look forward to reading the most each month. It's always hilarious and Max Sarin's artwork gets better with every issue. Highly recommended.

    This book was just as good as the other volumes. I'm thinking about doing a re-read soon because I just love the stories behind these three ladies. If you haven't picked up this series you definitely need to get to it soon

    Stuff and nonsense, to steal a phrase from one of the last pages of the book. Delightfully amusing stuff and nonsense though. Like solid episodes from a good sitcom, the stories in this collection amuse in the moment even if they tend to evaporate from one's mind over time.

    3.5 stars.SUSAN PTOLEMY, what the funk are you doing?!!! Okay, maaaaybe this is my least favorite volume, but I still quite liked it. I was never bored, but the issues here weren't as good as I was hoping, except the one about Dean's wedding, I laughed a lot with that one. NOW, I'm seriously considering buying the single issues on Comixology, because I need more of this series!RTC.

    One of the many fantastic things about Giant Days is that it does what almost everything else can’t, and that’s to seamlessly incorporate current slang and vernacular, in the proper contexts, without it coming across like old people trying to be Down With The Lingo. The writer must spend a lot of time on Twitter, or else really listens to the way the young people in his life talk.

    There are few things in life I enjoy as much as I enjoy this series. If they made a tv show I’d be the happiest person alive. Also. McGraw is my favorite. And this particular volume made me so happy. Particularly the part where he came to the girls rescue wielding a loaf of bread 🥖 as a weapon. :PI have zero complaints about this one except why do I have to wait so long for the next one.

    Still giving me all the warm fuzzy and silly feelings 7 books later. After 7 books its still fresh and warmhearted the art is still really awesome, I cant really put my finger on the art... it is magical and fits the stories like a glove those expressive faces win me over every time. Susan's family was one of my favorites, loved seeing her sisters and talk about warm fuzzy feelings at the end... jeez. The Dean story was the weakest luckily Esther...

    3.5 out of 5I think I’m slowly but surely falling in love with this series. I started genuinely caring about and relating to the characters (especially their relationships!), constantly chuckling at the jokes, and adoring the over expressive manga-ish art, which previously wasn't my cup of tea:Took me long enough, haha!

    One of the issues had me laugh out loud so hard!World: The art is fantastic and I say this every time because it’s the personality and the emotive style of the characters that makes this series work so well, we know who each character is and how they will react and their body language is perfect. The world building here is once again small and tied into the story and the characters, new little pieces like the garage and the dating life of peopl...

    The adventures of Susan, Esther, and Daisy continue as they tackle Christmas, a MMORPG wedding, a grocery store protest, and...chinchillas?The next four issues in the Giant Days saga are exactly what you expect them to be - laugh out loud funny, genuine, and so very real. The characters navigate love, life, and moral dilemmas while being outrageously entertaining along the way. The artwork even gets to go a little zany this time as a sleep-depriv...

    I'm so happy Susan and McGraw are together! They're so cute sneaking around their friends however he has a girlfriend. I mean he needs to break up with her. I love Daisy and Ingrid are together and not fighting anymore. I love them cuddling together at the last scene which was adorable.

    3 stars. This volume was a big step-down from the awesomeness that is this series... it was mostly boring and I didn’t feel very compelled to read it like I did with the other volumes. Hopefully the next collection rises back up...

    I laughed really loud twice. I just love these folks so much. I hope that this series never ends.

    There were a couple of delightful chapters and a couple that I liked less than usual. Still loving these characters.

    Yay, a new Giant Days Volume, this time with Christmas, weird parents, bickering, romance, and more. The first chapter is all about Christmas! Normally I am not too big on reading out of season stories, but with the weather still being in winter-mode, I don't mind it that much. Plus it was fun to see the girls' families again. I did feel sorry for Susan though. All she wants is a fun family time, but instead she got sharks as sisters (with childr...

    Honestly I read so little contemporary / non SFF stuff that I have trouble rating this series but I've decided to just go by number of laugh out loud moments and also number of panels I screencap for my reviews and this volume had a TON so it's my first 5-star rating for this series. Honestly Esther and Ed are probably the two characters that are carrying this series the most for me at this point [although I do love all of the mains] and this vol...

    This series is a ton of fun, and it is difficult to fully express why. I suppose the first reason I can think of is that each character is fully formed and has their specific nuances that John Allison is so skilled at exploring. For example, meeting Susan's sisters! I feel like the Ptolemy family is worthy of it's own series, with the sisters as the focus. Although, I really appreciated the demonstration that Susan inherited her angry face from h...

    Every time I pick up a new volume of Giant Days, I wonder if this will be the volume where the magic is no longer there because it's gone on too long and worn out its welcome; and every time, Giant Days is so reliably funny, sweet, self-deprecating, wry, and all-around great that I want it to last literally forever. If you've never picked up a volume of Giant Days, do yourself a favor. It's so dear.
