Giant Days is my rock. No, not a giant jacked American-Samoan man with a winning personality that makes everyone like him despite starring in one terrible movie after another, but my constant go-to-never-fails great read.

But WAIT - a less than stellar rating for this tenth(!) book?! Is my rock crumbling - is this the end times???? To that I say nay - or maybe yay, but for reasons completely separate from comics - unless artist Julia Madrigal is gonna be coming back.

I have read two volumes, 10 and 11, in a day or so, having gotten behind, so most people have posted tons of information already about this volume. I am with the majority I saw not happy with Max Sarin's taking a break from illustrating for a couple issues. We love your work, Max! Don't do that again, please! I also very much liked this issue, they're my friends, but as with any life, sometimes there are (thankfully) undramatic periods, and this whole volume reflects that kind of period for the ...more

Ten — TEN! — volumes in, and Giant Days is still the comic book I love and enjoy the most, month to month. It's hard to believe that I've been reading it for almost four years (well, more like three and a half, but still) since issue #1 came out and I randomly decided to give it a read because the cover looked cute. It's been an important part of my life ever since, and something I eagerly look forward to every single month. I can't express how grateful I am to John Allison, Max Sarin, Lisa Trei ...more

I'm so glad each of the girls has found a place to stay. I was very looking forward to Ed and Esther's reunion and I was a bit let down by it, I expected a little more, but I'm hopeful that the topic will be picked up again in the next volume. As always, Susan and McGraw are way too cute and funny, I can't get enough of the two of them. ...more

This is by far my favourite volume out of the series yet! I just love these characters so much and they really bring me back to my college days and all the uncertainty you constantly feel. And I just love McGraw so DAMN MUCH, I can’t get enough of him. I also really enjoyed the comedy in this one, it actually made me laugh out loud multiple times which is a rare thing for me when I’m reading! I sped through this volume way too quickly, it’s all coming to an end soon and I’m dreading it!

This go-round had a little housekeeping feel to it as the status quo of new living arrangements is established for senior year of college. Lots of good moments, but not a series peak for me.

p.s. diatribe: Daisy Wooten? Daisy Wooton? Why does it seem the spelling of her name changes from volume to volume? What's CANON dammit? What's the deal, Shannon Waters? Stupid or careless or deliberately trying to drive me INSANE????????

Another great volume in this series. The only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is because I'm honestly getting a little bit tired of the whole Ed/Esther thing and I wish they would just give the whole thing a rest already. I am glad the whole thing with Daisy and her grandma was resolved quickly though, I did not want a whole long drawn out 'homophobic grandma' story line.

Some highlights:

Have I mentioned how much I fucking love Giant Days yet? Because after 10 volumes, if I haven't, then I'm doing something wrong. This book just continues to be top quality, absolutely hilarious, full of heart, and just a joy to read, even 40 issues in.

This volume sees Daisy deal with the aftermath of her break-up with Ingrid, while the girls attempt to find a new home for their final year of university, and the return of Ed Gemmell and his Esther-induced broken leg. Relationships continue to evo

In this volume of Giant Days Daisy is dealing with the reveal a certain someone made to her grandmother, all the while looking for a place to live for the new school year, Esther is trying to repair her relationship with Ed, and Susan is dealing with moving into a less than ideal apartment.

Lately I've had a pretty up and down relationship with Giant Days. The latter volumes aren't quite as charming as the ones that first kicked off the series, and the last few were just plain weird.

Half through the volume, I noticed the change of art style and it irritated me so much because the three main characters seem to behave slightly different from their selves in previous volumes. I still enjoyed the story tho. Totally get what Esther was saying about those career fairs. Some people are just do not want to be in corporate world. Love to see Ed is back on track & glad to see his character grow! And McGraw is such a bf goal!

I come to this graphic novel series for the fun vibes and witty banter between the trio it focuses on. It was a pleasant surprise to find a focus on the nature of acceptance featured here, which added some well-needed depth to all that occurred.

I still prefer the original artwork from the first volume and a half, but had finally got accustomed to Max Sarin's artwork. I really didn't enjoy guest artist Julia Madrigal's art - it was waaaaayyy too cartoony and juvenile, especially considering that the characters are dealing with being on the cusp of adult responsibilities. ...more

There is a lot of fallout from the previous volume, as the women take on new homes and roles in their own lives and their shared experiences. The change in focus could have been rough, but John Allison nails it as usual. All of the characters have strong arcs, from Ed facing down Esther after the events of the past volume, to Daisy's eventful apartment search, which leads to a new role. And the job fair was great. A lot of laugh-out-loud moments, some powerfully moving scenes, and all of the fun ...more

Third year arrives, and with it the careers fair - correctly identified by Esther as "a wake for the death of youthful dreams". Worse, there's clear-up to be done on the emotional carnage left by the last two years. Yet somehow, it stays funny, and never cloys even when these brilliant young idiots are literally hugging and learning. Not only very funny, but also surprisingly informative about the composition of Earth's crust. ...more

This was a great installment. Loved the job fair issue and so happy Daisy's arc is no longer a train wreck (though maybe that will change). As we near the end I'm trying to decide how devastated I will be if Ed and Esther never make a meaningful connection and, honestly, the answer is still very. The artwork in the earlier issues is still my favorite style but so it goes. ...more

Main takeaway: I can't decide if it's because the girls are older and more mature now, so the problems they face are no longer as daunting (such as Daisy immediately recognizing that the house is a cult--and confronting them about it instead of going with the flow and joint the cult out of politeness), or if the series really has taken a sit-com approach to story, where every problem is solved within 30 minutes or less. I do believe, though, that John Allison didn't know how to resolve the Daisy ...more

This volume picks up where the cliffhanger ending (of a sorts) left us in the previous instalment, as Daisy Wooton goes home to her grandmother for the summer. And, of course, much time is spent on the new living arrangements of our little band of heroes, after Daisy, Susan Ptolemy and Esther De Groot are separating (living-wise if not friends-wise).

Max Sarin delivers another home run on the two issues he draws (#37 and 40, respectively), but his fill-in, Julia Madrigal (on issues #38–39), while

This was ok. My main complaint is that there was a new artist that made the art look a little strange.

For the tenth volume of Giant Days, our story and characters feel neither tired nor dull - quite an accomplishment for Allison. As the group begins their last year at university things definitely feel more down to Earth - job fairs, CVs and physical therapy replace late night binge drinking, secret hookups and DnD shenanigans. Allison gives Ed and Esther a fantastic resolution following Ed's drunken declaration of love followed by breaking both ankles, and Susan convinces McGraw to attend the jo ...more

The series as a whole is stellar. I even re-read the first nine volumes this early year and loved each one more than the first time through.

So what happened here? Not much!

Definitely some moments: funny, heartfelt and true to form for the author and illustrator team of Allison/Sarin.

I can appreciate whatever happened (a leave of absence? a temporary burn-out? an experiment for a newer artist on board to try their wings?) with the guest artist for the two chapters (bracketed by the inimitable Ma

Another! My forever favorite is back! And I feel like I was waiting for ages for this volume. I was very pleased with how a lot of the relationship conflicts got resolved. People talked, admitted their feelings, tried to understand how the other person felt, and apologized. Yow. I loved it. There's a different artist for some of the middle issues, and it's noticeable, but I thought the guest artist was charming and energetic, even if it wasn't the same. The biggest problem with this volume, like ...more

As the description stated, the crew is back together for their last year. I loved that we picked up exactly where the #36 left off. Pretty much we are adjusting to the decisions made in the last trade. The art changes in #38 & #39. I'm not sure why but it was not my favorite art styles. I was confused by which characters were whom. Luckily #40 gets back to the normal art style. The story lines were missing a little of their usual spark but t will still nice to be back in this world.
