It felt so good to be back for another round of Giant Days, following our three wholesome “grown-up women in the modern world.”

Second year begins and Daisy, Susan, and Esther have taken their friendship commitment to the next level by moving into their “beautiful home”, off-campus. But the keys didn’t come without a whole new level of responsibility. Unwanted suitor visits, a robbery, and Susan living only a few blocks apart from her ex-boyfriend, McGraw has made the dorms feel like a haven. The

I read this months ago but forgot to review it, I guess. If you want the best review, read Sam's, for sure. But in Giant Days, Volume 6, the girls move into off-campus housing, which is good except they get burgled, and have to deal with a cranky old neighbour. I like the visit from Susan's macho Dad Big Geoff. I like Susan's ex, NcGraw, hanging around and being helpful. I like that Esther gets a job at the local comics shop (though she pretty miserably fails most of the comics nerd test). This ...more

In Giant Days Volume 6, the girls deal with a burglary, a disastrous dinner party and a cranky old neighbour. Also, Susan gets sick and is nursed back to health by her pops Big Geoff, Esther gets a job at the local comics shop, and Daisy gets her first girlfriend, the wild and crazy German student Ingrid!

I didn’t think I could love Giant Days more but then, during the burglary story, a David Caruso from CSI: Miami lookalike appeared and bumped up my adoration to the next level! If you don’t kno

I enjoyed this issue. It was in top form and the story was good. The girls are back from summer vacation to start their sophomore year at school. Daisy gets a girlfriend and the house is all atwitter. Susan gets sick and it's really not pretty. The best part is when Susan's father moves in with them to take care of Susan and nurse her back to health. That was some great stuff.

Oh, those carefree, over stressed days of college. I don't want to be 20 again, but they were some good days. Full of en

The amazing university adventures of Esther, Susan and Daisy continue in this sixth volume of this comic book series. I enjoyed seeing the girls behave more like adults now that they live on their own, even though sometimes it was really difficult for them to do so. These girls never cease to make me laugh and I cannot wait to read the next volume!

Volume six! I would love to read these volumes forever. This one was a bit dramatic. Daisy is having love problems, Susan is dying of the plague (not really) and Esther just wants a job. Of course craziness ensues through out. Just a normal look at late teen girls in college...teehee, just kidding...about the normal part.

By the way, where can I find clothes like Esther. To be so morbidly fashionable.

A burglary, a hot new love and some sickness. A wide variety of daily challenges. A fun read if nothing else.

"Suzie, do you feel like this year is kind of... bad... compared to last year? less fun?"

I'm a bit amazed at how this series, that because of its nature lacks a defined plot, it is after all a slice of life story, is continuously solid in quality, it's entertaining, and emotionally engaging. In the six volumes I've so far read, there's never a distinctly bad installment, there's never an issue I have not liked. And yes, as Esther said in the quote above, maybe the girls have calmed a little,

Yet another phenomenally good volume of John Allison's Giant Days. I keep thinking the book is going to run out of steam at some point but with every issue that comes out it proves me wrong; I just find myself falling deeper and deeper in love with the characters!

Tell you what, I recommend reading Sam's review HERE as he says everything I would have said but more coherently.

This volume didn’t capture my attention quite as much as the previous ones did but don’t ask me why, I’d be hard pressed to come up with an answer. I still adore all the characters and their quirkiness and I love reading about their various mishaps but there was just a teeny little bit of something missing from this one for me. It’s still hilarious though and definitely still worth a read!

Back for a second year!

Ester gets a new job! (Still a total babe!)
Daisy is exploring her sexuality (still the sweetest)
Susan is ill ( still tomboy with attitude)

3.5 out of 5

Giant Days, Vol. 6 is lighthearted, funny (unlike the jokes in the previous volume, the humor in Giant Days, Vol. 6 is brilliant), relatable, and sweet. I especially loved Chapter Twenty-Four featuring Susan’s dad, Big Geoff.

And I finally started appreciating the over-expressive manga-ish art (or did it actually get better?):

This is Daisy’s book, truly this time.

I have been waiting for it. Not only do we learn a little about her parents, and even more about herself, but we are also privy to her relationship with fast-forward Ingrid.

You see, Ingrid is not the kind of person to take things slow. She’s an extrovert through and through, whereas Daisy prefers the comfort of her home to partying and meeting new people.

Still, they go on a little adventure together. *wink* *wink* Honestly, I’m not yet sure if she’s the rig

Ah this stuff is so good.

World: The art has always been good, it sets this series tone and characters up and without it this series would not be what it is. The world building here is small and intimate and tied into the characters, it's solid and cozy.

Story: These 4 issues are solid just like the rest. It's the continuation of each of the character's development. Daisy starts off with some beautiful little character stuff with dating that makes you squee, then there's the little stuff with Es

Yesssss, Giant Days is back on form with this volume! I enjoyed this one much more than Volume 5, which didn't engage me as much, but I really enjoyed all 4 stories in this one. I also really loved the artwork, which made character reactions even more funny. And Big Geoff! So glad I can continue loving this series.

Another fabulous volume in the Giant Days series! I loved every page of it. <3

With each volume the series gets better and better, the characters are growing up (well, at least a bit).

In this one a lot of things are happening. First up the girls are of course moving into their new building, living truly together now. But of course that means a ton of new responsibility + a new level of being with your friends (like Esther learns later on in the volume, knocking is very important if you enter so

This volume almost completely jettisons anything school related from the lives of heroines, focusing instead on their adventures in their new house. The issues are very episodic, with a home invasion story, Daisy's love interest story, a dinner party, and a sick Susan story. All of the episodes are enjoyable, although not quite up to the quality of some previous issues. Susan being sick and having a parent come take care of her does provide some good laughs (and a light amount of pathos). And Da ...more

John Allison’s skill in creating a dynamic story really shines through in this volume. It has a slightly different tone than the volumes that come before. There are still plenty shenanigans and witty interactions, but there is also a focus on some of the more sombre aspects of adult life. This is my favourite volume so far.

(Review Not on Blog)

Another great collection of Giant Days - we get to see some of Daisy's past, Susan's dad and the girls get burgled. I keep forgetting that this graphic novel takes place in Britain, so I always get a bit confused when they make a mention.

4.5 stars.
My favourite from the series so far; I got so engrossed that I was surprised it’s over when I turned the last page.
On to volume 7!

PS. This is exactly the 300th book I ever read! 👻
