Giant Days, Vol. 7 Reviews

    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!

    Yay, a new Giant Days Volume, this time with Christmas, weird parents, bickering, romance, and more.

    The first chapter is all about Christmas! Normally I am not too big on reading out of season stories, but with the weather still being in winter-mode, I don't mind it that much. Plus it was fun to see the girls' families again. I did feel sorry for Susan though. All she wants is a fun family time, but instead she got sharks as sisters (with children) and her parents are constantly bickering about

    Yay, a new Giant Days Volume, this time with Christmas, weird parents, bickering, romance, and more.

    The first chapter is all about Christmas! Normally I am not too big on reading out of season stories, but with the weather still being in winter-mode, I don't mind it that much. Plus it was fun to see the girls' families again. I did feel sorry for Susan though. All she wants is a fun family time, but instead she got sharks as sisters (with children) and her parents are constantly bickering about everything (even the silliest things). I had such a laugh at Susan's grandma and also when that one sister popped up out of nowhere. In the mean time Esther and Daisy are having the time of their lives at Daisy's grandma's house. Esther wasn't supposed to be there, but she got tempted by the promise of pie! :P

    Then there is a ton of other things happened. Ingrid and Daisy are a bit struggling, and I was really worried about them. I am still not the biggest fan of Ingrid (though dang she got some fine abs), but I am still wishing that those two stay together. They make the cutest couple. Though why in heaven's name did Ingrid draw THAT on the wall.

    As for who Susan's is romancing? Well, it was no surprise. There are hints about it since the first chapter in this volume. Plus I was always hoping for them to get back together, especially with the way they parted. I am quite curious about the reactions of Esther and Daisy when they find out.

    Esther also gets her chance to shine when she gets outed on her knowledge. She is always acting like she knows all the things. Even Susan and Daisy were surprised that she was that oblivious to all the things. Then again I don't blame her, politics and all that is just super-boring. But I am glad she at least tried to go for it. Sure, it turned into something else entirely when she met that person, but eh, that is Esther for you. I did have a laugh at the end though. She was so proud and then learns that.

    The only chapter I didn't like, and which was quite a struggle, was chapter 26. I just didn't like it at all it was boring, plus I am much more interested in the girls, their lives are just way more interesting to read about. Plus Dean is just so urgggghhhhhhh. I get that you want to try out foods and all that, but also keep your fellow housemates in mind when making food. Do you really want to gas them to death with disgusting foods? The only things I did like were what Esther did at the end (a bit mean, but it was quite hilarious), and the whole game setting.

    So a lot is happening in this volume and I was, with the exception of chapter 26, not bored. I just so adore the art it is so pretty. Oh, and I had quite a laugh at the present Esther got for Susan. Will she ever figure out how to wear it or is she going for Daisy's suggestion? ;)

    There are few things in life I enjoy as much as I enjoy this series. If they made a tv show I’d be the happiest person alive.

    Also. McGraw is my favorite. And this particular volume made me so happy. Particularly the part where he came to the girls rescue wielding a loaf of bread 🥖 as a weapon.

    :P

    I have zero complaints about this one except why do I have to wait so long for the next one.

    The adventures of Susan, Esther, and Daisy continue as they tackle Christmas, a MMORPG wedding, a grocery store protest, and...chinchillas?

    The next four issues in the Giant Days saga are exactly what you expect them to be - laugh out loud funny, genuine, and so very real. The characters navigate love, life, and moral dilemmas while being outrageously entertaining along the way. The artwork even gets to go a little zany this time as a sleep-deprived Susan starts hallucinating, so that must have b

The characters navigate love, life, and moral dilemmas while being outrageously entertaining along the way. The artwork even gets to go a little zany this time as a sleep-deprived Susan starts hallucinating, so that must have been fun for everyone involved.

    I do wonder if it's as big a hit for American readers as it is for me as an Englishman, since I expect some of the references will be lost on overseas readers sometimes.

    But yeah. Giant Days. Get on that.

    I. Love. This. Series. So. Much.

    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.
