Giant Days Vol. 1
Giant Days Vol. 1 | John Allison
Whats to Love: John Allisons daily webcomics Bad Machinery and Scary Go Round are hilarious, the kind of strips where every panel makes you laugh out loud. As a result, John has earned a large, loyal following of readers that have followed his work daily for the past 12 years. Giant Days is an entertaining, slice-of-life look at three friends away at university, and is a series fans of things like Scott Pilgrim and Friends with Boys will not want to miss! What It Is: Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of handwringing boys, "personal experimentation," influenza, mystery mold, nuchauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of "academia," they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Collects issues #1-4.

didn‘t really manage to do a proper #readathon last weekend so here I am, with my pile of Giant Days, attempting my own mini readathon! Readathon snack of homemade matcha kasutera or green tea castella cake. Made this for the first time yesterday!
The castella cake is a fat-less sponge cake (no oil no butter) and no raising agents (you have to whisk the eggs to get the volume) and was brought to Japan by the Portuguese in the 16th century

This is volume 11, which the tag doesn't actually say. The group goes through Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's Day, and Ed spends a week in Australia with Nina and her family. I cannot put into words just how much I love this series.

Post pumpkin patch trip to our favorite comic book store yielded these purchases. As a 45 year old woman, I usually don‘t buy myself stuffed animals. But, I could not pass up this plush cup of hot chocolate. 😁

I‘ve been up and down so much today, so I haven‘t gotten much reading done on my main read. I can‘t keep the book in my hands all the time while chasing around the puppy. But my phone is almost always with me, so I‘ve started this one on my ComiXology app. This series has actually been on my TBR for a couple years now. Yay for technology! 📱

Esmerelda1rm I love this series! It makes me nostalgic for college again. You should try LumberJanes, that‘s an excellent comic series as well 6mo

I enjoyed these short snippets of college life, but it kind of feels like it‘s lacking an overall arc. It‘s amusing and easy to read, but I‘m not sure I‘ll continue with the series.

Well that was fun! I am reading several #chunksters right now so slipping in a graphic novel lets me finish something! I think though technology has changed, many of the issues, friendships ,and challenges of young people going off to university are relatable to readers of many ages .Wanting to read this finally made me get Hoopla!

Oh wow, I LOVED this! Such brilliant characters! This collection of the first 4 issues actually made me laugh out loud a few times, including these frames of Esther venturing out in her gothic regalia whilst nursing a nasty bout of fresher‘s flu.
Annoyingly, my local library only has this first collection. 😡

This is one of the comics I started reading this year and I love it so much that I subscribe to it now. Giant Days is about 3 girls living in England, trying to get through college, life, and everything that gets thrown at the them. It‘s hilarious, the characters are witty, and the art is amazing. Pick this one up if you‘re into comics! #comicbooks

Love this! Three girls live together in the same dorm for their first year at university. This follows their adventures together and it is so fun I couldn‘t get enough of it. I wish I had the style of Esther, but I‘m probably much more like Susan 😂 I‘ll definitely be continuing on with this graphic novel series.

So... my son has been enjoying Lumberjanes (also on KU) and I asked my daughter if Giant Days would be appropriate for him. She said she didn‘t think he was old enough to get the humour. Now I‘ve read vol. 1 and I don‘t think my daughter is old enough that she should get the humour! 😬

Vol. 1-3 of Giant Days are included with Kindle Unlimited. My daughter informs me that vol. 3 ends on a cliff hanger and she MUST have vol. 4 so can we please buy it. Of course we can. I just need to first read at least vol. 1, to determine whether her father and I are paying for it or if it comes out of her pocket money. 😏

saresmoore That is exactly my strategy with kid-requested purchases. 1y
Leniverse @saresmoore If both their father and I scheme to try to get our hands and eyes on the book first, it only seems fair that we pay for it. If it‘s something we‘re not interested in but we‘ll have to read it anyway because the kids think it‘s amazeballs and insist we read it too, then they can at least bear the expense. 😂 1y

Oh my gosh! Usually I read college stuff and I think, “Okay, that was fun but not really similar to my experience.” Volume One was so much like my first two years of college! Except if Esther was more punk than goth and had a Russian name; my Daisy was taller than everyone and not quite so naive but just as shy; and I was a less angry and less ambitious (English Lit degree, not medical) Susan. Just the reprieve I needed from all the things.

Suzze I love this series. 2y

Recovering from a stomach bug that has absolutely destroyed me over the last 36 hours. I can‘t even stand up for more than a minute. I‘m the only one awake, so I thought I‘d read this new book Michelle recommended to me. This was the week from hell, so I could use a pick-me-up in more ways than one.

LA area peeps! If you are into graphic novels and are ever over in the West LA area, be sure to check out Pulp Fiction on Sepulveda at Lindblade in Culver City. They have comics, graphic novels, manga, trade comics. It‘s not my thing (but my 15yo loves this place). They also have discounts and a nice used section.
