Giant Days, Vol. 7 Reviews

  • Paul E. Morph

    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.

    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.

    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 Volume 7, Susan goes back to Northampton at Christmastime to play matchmaker to her estranged parents, McGraw and Ed Gemmell are aghast to discover their insufferable housemate Dean Thompson has found love, Esther dabbles in protesting, and Daisy has her first relationship fight with Ingrid.

    Every issue is a gem. I loved meeting Susan’s whole family and how she tried rallying all of her older sisters (she’s the youngest) to bring Big Geoff and her mum back together. I like how John Allison can be so funny but also throw in moments of stark pathos. Susan’s mum talks about how the estrangement happened - “Forty years of tiny crimes rattling round an empty house” - and it rings so true without seeming awkwardly placed amidst the comedy. And Big Geoff is always wunnerful!

    Artist Max Sarin continues to draw everything perfectly. She takes us into Dean Thompson’s fantasy online game during his whirlwind romance story for an imaginative change of pace. Then she gives us a panel that stuck out to me for being so weirdly funny for some reason: McGraw eavesdropping on Dean’s chat with his lady friend with Allison quipping “She passed the Turing test”! The warped dreamtime panels when the girls set out to uncover the mystery of their locked garage was delightfully trippy too.

    Usually I can’t stand the kind of smug, self-satisfied idiots who protest but Allison turned Esther into one for an issue and still made me love her - that’s how bonkers talented this writer is!

    I think the day I stop enjoying Giant Days is the day I give up comics for good. If you’re stuck amidst mediocrity to read, find these beautiful books of brilliance to briefly brighten up your brain! Like the other six Giant Days volumes, Volume 7 is a home-run. I can’t recommend this title more - it’s the full package!

    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. I’ve read every volume with a smile on my face and al

    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. I’ve read every volume with a smile on my face and always a second away from a chuckle. I wish I could be friends with these gals.

    If you haven’t picked up these graphic novels... seriously do they are a must.

    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?

  • Carmen

    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:)

    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.

    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, one of the best ever, and Sarin’s drawing is great

    Allison is consistently funny with the dialogue, one of the best ever, and Sarin’s drawing is great as usual. So goofy and sweet and fun, this series. I love this series and can’t wait for the next volume.

    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.

    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 temperatures and humidity that qualifies as sauna.

    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 temperatures and humidity that qualifies as sauna. I am made for more arctic weather, that is for sure.

    I am really starting to love this comic, and maybe it is because it has kept me company in a weather that makes everyone miserable, or maybe this comic is finally getting into same levels than my mind set is. Either way - it is fab.

    Seventh volume feels so much more complete - even more than the sixth - compared to the others. There is much stronger connection between the issues, and the attention to each character is in its best balance.

    I loved the activism-moment Esther experienced, the painful realization of how our world runs, but I adored even more of her growing out of that momentum. Luckily, here those activism-moments are about something else than the usual.... Dare I say it... Crap.

    Susan's relationship developments with her ex are intriguing, and I am looking forward to see where they are going with it. Relationships - any kind of relationships - are hard. As it is seen in the relationship of Daisy and Ingrid. What a wonderful way to handle the identity crisis hitting at in your first real romantic relationship.

    A strong volume - high hopes for the next one.
