After being rejected by beautiful Goth princess Esther, Ed Gemmell’s been mending his broke heart (and ankles) with Amazonian Aussie babe Extreme Sports Nina – and the two have fallen in love! So, irony of ironies, when Ess sees Ed and Neen together for the first time, she realises she’s in love with Ed too! Two drop-dead gorges chasing after you? Ed, mate: hi-fucking-five! And TEACH ME!

To cobble together the pennies for a plane ticket to visit Neen’s parents in Oz over the holidays (see the sp

Well! After an uneventful and pretty unmemorable volume, this is All About Memorable, in that Ed's (surprise) new girlfriend Nina takes him home to see her Australian family! Lots of fun in the down under. Can non-athlete Ed hold up under the All Sports All the Time environment? (correct)

(But how is Esther doing about this? Well, read it, but this creates a realization in her she hadn't anticipated. But Nina is a very likable character! Hard to hate, even for Esther lovers! And speaking of lover

It's always good to be back with the lovely and fun girls of this wonderful comic series. I'm so sad I've only got a few volumes left and then I'm going to be done, I'm going to miss them all so much! I enjoyed this volume, but I really hope I get the chance to see more of Ed in the next one, I'm so looking forward to see more of his story and I also really hope for something to happen between him and Esther, we'll see.

It has been waaaaay too long since I've picked up a new volume of this series and I'm so happy to have read this. ♥ This is easily my favorite graphic novel series and I really just never, ever get tired of time spent with these 3 and their ridiculous antics (and McGraw! I'm so happy to be seeing him regularly in these issues again!). I hope John Allison keeps writing these graphic novels forever. 🥰

UPDATE: Literally 5 minutes after writing this mini-review, I learned that, though the final volum

Senior year and suddenly we're zipping from Halloween through Christmas and Valentine's Day to spring break. Where'd the time go? It feels a bit like it is being frittered away, but this outing is still an enjoyable time spent with familiar and fun characters. Alas, they spend much of the time apart in their own storylines, when they work best as a group.

I feel like I sound like a broken record when it comes to this graphic novel series because I just go on and on about how great it is and how much I love McGraw. And I don’t have anything much different to say this time around which just goes to further prove how fabulous this series is. It just feels good when I’m reading it and time flies when I’m hanging out with these girls!

My comfort comic ❤️
actual rating: 3.5

As always, this was a really cute volume but there wasn't really anything in here that blew me away or made me laugh at out loud. Also I feel like it covered a really big chunk of time - like half of their year! Going at this pace there's probably only going to be one or maybe two more volumes and that makes me sad. Also I really love Nina, and not just because I'm sick to death of the whole ~will they won't they~ thing with Ed and Esther [but kudos to her for doing the right t
Extra star for Ed’s crazy Australian girlfriend. Yes, I understood all of the words that they were using 😂😂😂

Extra love for Esther doing the right thing for someone she cares about even if it’s not what she wanted

I think I laughed out loud more often in this volume than in any previous. This series is still firing on all cylinders, with the humor, the drama, the relationships, and the characters all in sync. We get a Christmas adventure with Cult-like influences, aftershocks of a bad breakup, and a trip to Australia; each situation is full of laughs and drama, much of which plays out in unexpected, but completely in character, ways. I don't know what else to say about this except this series is still won ...more
How can everyone in this book be so RIDICULOUS and yet so emotionally competent at the same time? I don't know but I love it and love everyone. Note: this book is extra fat because it includes the special Christmas issue illustrated by John Allison where Ed Gemmell travels to Australia for some shenanigans. Nice.

OMG!!! This was soooooo good.
I love this series so much but it manages to keep getting better and staying true to the source? I genuinely don't want it to end, although I know it has to. I did like the focus on some of the other characters this issue (it's a big one!). I really like that you can pick this up after a while and still know the story (as we've seen with previous comics)!!

Halloween, Christmas and Valentine's day = a dramatic party where Daisy runs into her chaotic ex. Ed Gemmel finds love, and the worst possible job in a pop-up Christmas market that could... also be a cult??? Esther developing a lovely friendship with McGraw, hurting because of a crush and maybe getting over it... finding the one? There's not much of Susan in this volume, she's just exhausted saving lives. She deserves a break.

This one was better than the previous volume, I enjoyed the h

This was one of the better ones I’ve read in awhile

Reread: 4/5 Stars
Same feelings.
Wooo, this is a nice, thick one! I wasn't really sure where things were going at the end of the last volume, but I should not have worried. Same old girls, same old boys, same old wonderful.

I love Esther hanging out with McGraw and Susan just being fascinated by it ("People don't take her seriously, and I think they should." ❤️️❤️️❤️️!!!). I love how Daisy is dealing with her breakup with Ingrid and how protective Susan and Esther are of her, and how she accidentally joins a "cult" (OF COURSE S

Okay, not my fave.

Esther now loves Ed. Ed is dating an Australian girl.
McGraw helps a Cliff, an elderly neighbor who asks too much of McGraw and then dumps their friendship when random bulky dude returns.
Ed and Daisy worked for Cliff, who was a total scam.
Esther tries dating a genius millionaire but something about a subway station and Russian invasion breaks them up.
Bonus, Ed’s adventures in Australia meeting his girlfriends family.

Hmm there's a totally unnecessary part where the trio dress up for Halloween and Esther dresses as a Geisha with a mask and the fact that it's cultural appropriation is made fun of in the text but it also goes nowhere, so it's just painful for no reason?? Otherwise this volume was just as delightful as the rest...

Still obsessed with Giant Days, I thing it's something I will never get bored of. At this point I'm all caught up with the series and I'm impatiently waiting for the next volume to come out. Esther, Susan and Daisy feel like my real friends and I have to say a big THANKS to John Allison for creating the only uni experience I have ever wanted.

I love this series - I've been reading them for many years now, starting when I was a fresher like the characters, and now I am most definitely not (!). Each volume is a low-stress, big-hijinks slice of slightly surreal life, and I'm going to be dipping in and out of them as long as they're being published.

This one was a bit longer than the other volumes so I got a bit intimidated and put off reading it for weeks which I now totally regret! I always have so much fun reading these comics and this time was no different!

At one point, I scream-laughed. This series continues to be a delight. I am very sad it will be ending soon.

I live this series so much and am having a minor crisis about this being the 2nd-to-last volume ever. I'll never have enough of these characters. How am I meant to go on????
