Giant Days Vol. 2
Giant Days Vol. 2 | John Allison
135 posts | 183 read | 1 reading | 65 to read
Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of hand-wringing boys, "personal experimentation," holiday balls, nu-chauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of "academia," they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Giant Days, the comedic slice-of-life series from creator John Allison (Bad Machinery, Scary Go Round) and artist Lissa Treiman, has graduated to a second volume.

I enjoyed this as much as the first. I‘m a bit concerned that I have a crush on McGraw. Maybe it‘s the mustache....

Such a fun, fast read. Gotta love graphic novels for a quick change of pace. I love Giant Days' freespirited, girl power vibe. Perfect for Summer (or really any season).

Another fun edition of this comic. I liked Vol. 1 more, as it was funnier and had me laughing out loud constantly, whereas with this one that wasn‘t the case, but I still had a good time with this and look forward to continuing the series.

I seriously love this series! I definitely needed that. These books seem to hit me when I really need them most, and it‘s fantastic. The art and humor style are just right up my alley. Now excuse me while I blow a ridiculous amount of money on the rest of the series...

#7in7readathon reading for the day: I finished Age of License, started and finished Giant Days vol. 2, and then started both Lovelace‘s book and French Milk. I read the first part of four in Lovelace‘s book and I‘m planning to read one part a day until the end of the readathon. I plan to finish French Milk tomorrow. So 3 down, 4 to go! 1 tomorrow, 2 Saturday during #reversereadathon, and finish Lovelace on Sunday. Totally doable!

I like seeing the way different artists portray the same characters, as in the examples above with Esther and Daisy. In volume 2, chapters 5 & 6 are by Lissa Treiman (left) and 7 & 8 are by Max Sarin.

Not quite as good as the first, but still so good! Also, my husband is basically McGraw but a little shorter and with more gaming and computer nerdiness. But he does make me things out of wood when I'm feeling down or gone on vacation. 😆💗

I felt this wasn't as good as the first, but loved it none the less! Although, I'm disappointed in the artist change in the middle of the book. It's not to say it's not a good art style, but I feel it takes some of the "personality" from the story/characters. I felt there were also a lot more laugh out loud moments with the first book, again, because the art style gave the words more depth.

None the less, will keep on reading these!

Taylor Yeah I didn‘t laugh out loud much at all in this one, but on vol. 1 I was laughing constantly. 2mo

GondorGirl @TricksyTails I only have one above library card. But apparently the number of borrows you have depends on your library. Your library must pay for more borrows or something. 😚 1y
TricksyTails Fortunately, my library card from when I lived in a big city still works. I‘m going to cry the day it expires because my little town‘s library doesn‘t even have Hoopla! ? Oh! Oh! Does your fiancée have a library card? Maybe sign in with his info! ?? 1y

I think I liked volume 2 even better than volume 1 of Giant Days. The characters are sweet and the situations are (mostly) realistic. I can relate to the girls antics; they remind me of when I was in college (the first time). So glad I started this series.

Smangela I just read Volume 1 & 2 - I agree I really enjoy the characters ☺️☺️ 2y

I was gonna stay out of the Quality Street today, but I'm trapped inside because we're under an extreme cold warning and the only car I have access to won't start. So I feel justified in eating chocolate and reading comics.

GrilledCheeseSamurai Seems right. We have e extreme cold warnings right now too...and.my car is also frozen solid with a dead battery. Won't get it replaced until Tuesday / Wedensday. 😥 2y

(Sorry had to repost as a review, my mistake) Volume 2 was also great! There are so many great parts in these stories, but my favorite had to be this whole Friday Night Lights bit--it took me forever to realize Daisy was playing both sides of the FNL power couple! She is so me. 😂😂😂

I love these comics. I am instantly transported to my college years (minus the cell phones) and just feel so happy reading about these characters. This volume had a few story lines I didn't love, but it was still a fun ride.

I've also realized that I am Susan. (Yes, that's my real name too)
