    Yep. Still the best.

    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 know why that’s amazing, Caruso’s character, in the cold opening of an episode, notoriously started a sentence… put on his sunglasses… then finished his sentence immediately followed by the CSI intro which kicks off with a YEAAAAHHHH!!! rock song.

    - I don’t know how many times I’ve seen that video but it never fails to make me laugh. Massive kudos to John Allison for putting that into his comic!

    I love all the characters but Daisy gets the most attention in this volume which is great as she usually gets the least. We discover her sad secret origin revealing her parents’ fate and the turbulent courtship of Ingrid commences. Her character really grows in this book – she’s blossoming into a woman of the world!

    Big Geoff is an awesome character too and I loved how infantilised Susan instantly got when her dad showed up to do all the cooking, etc. Even the heavier material with their elderly neighbour was superbly handled and engrossing. And Max Sarin - I’ve said everything I can say about her art in previous reviews, but: perfection as always, Max!

    I honestly don’t think I’ve ever read a comic that’s as consistently high quality as Giant Days. Even beloved titles like Scalped and Dragon Ball had minor flaws in their first six volumes but Giant Days is something else. John Allison is just a ridiculously talented writer. “Despair o’clock” as a caption for Ed Gemmell’s house? Majestic. Like the previous five volumes, Giant Days Volume 6 is flawless.

    Giant Days might be… (puts on sunglasses)… the greatest comic the world’s ever seen!

    Yet another phenomenally good volume of John Allison's

    . 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

    as he says everything I would have said but more coherently.

    , 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 girls are in for a dose of reality when they learn that there’s more to being an adult than paying your own rent.

    This newest addition to the series was the most grown up we've seen our group. From crossing the brink of adulthood by hosting a fancy dinner party at their new home to dealing with unexpected tragedies happening all around. We've matured a lot as a group.

    There's a reason why

    is the only comic series I actually bother to keep up with consecutively, and the answer lies mostly within the characters.

    • We have a new story arc centering around Daisy. From visiting her past to find out the reason behind her parents' tragic and unforeseeable death, to watching her branch out and date her complete opposite in the present. I never tire of seeing Daisy Wooton have more "screen" time.

    • In the meantime, with Daisy taking advantage of her youth, Esther has taken on the mom-friend duty with excellence.

    • The humor is remarkably up to par in this newest volume, like, morbidly so.

    The last panel actually made me laugh out loud.

    • Speaking of which, here's another gem of classic comedy:

    Esther's comment "He's going to break the toilet" 

    me.

    • Finally, on a completely unrelated note,

    the tumultuous relationship between McGraw and Susan is unfortunately still happening. Though I'm secretly hoping they work things out in future issues, I'm still game for whatever direction the writers decide to head in.

    Yesssss,

    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.

  • Ashley Metzger

    This series is so enjoyable. I love it beyond belief.

  • Derryn

    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)

    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

    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 someone's room). It was quite fun to see them settle in.

    But there are also challenges. Like a break-in, it was quite funny (this may sound wrong, but I just can't think of another word) how they first were going all nuts on who hadn't locked the doors/closed the windows, but then Daisy pointed out something so obvious. Thankfully not a whole lot was stolen, but Daisy is of course heartbroken to learn that something very precious of hers has been stolen. :( I just wanted to hug the girl. Poor thing.

    And then it was hilarious as Susan decided to just go into the seedy underbelly and get their stuff back. Yep, that is Susan for you. Esther and Daisy both weren't really into the plan, but decided to go along.

    But other challenges also include having guests over (and what to do when a particular guest is a bit annoying), a dinner party (what to serve them when they all have something they can't eat), and living with a grumpy old coot (though that grumpy old coot got me into tears near the end) next door.

    Ingrid pops up again, and while I didn't like her in the previous volume, I noticed I grew fond of her. She is still a bit too obtuse and doesn't seem to get she is hurting people with what she says, but I loved her and Daisy together. They do make a perfect and cute couple. I just adored seeing Daisy's expressions when Ingrid made all sorts of remarks about sexy time.

    We also see Susan's dad, and I just adored how the girls took a liking to him, well... mostly because of the giant piles of food he made while he was around.

    I do hope Susan is able to get over McGraw, as it is really painful to see her break every time he is near her, or when he is with his now girlfriend.

    There was one thing I didn't particularly like and that is that we never really saw much of their university/lessons. It just seems like these girls have endless days ahead of them with everything but university. And that is a shame. I want to see what our girls get up to in the new year, see what lessons they have, see them being frustrated at the amount of work, that kind of thing.

    The art is just fabulous, I especially love the expressions on the characters.

    I think I got everything I wanted to say in my review. I really enjoyed this volume, and I can't wait for the 7th volume. Hopefully it will feature a bit more university.

    review a-coming, but this one has some really cute moments!!

  • Bookishrealm

    This was such a great installment to the series. I'm really enjoying learning so much about the characters and their journey through college. It's been so rewarding and hilarious. I don't want to say too much because this is the 6th volume but it was AMAZING!
