Giant Days, Volume 5
Giant Days, Volume 5 | John Allison
Going off to university is always a time of change and growth, but for Esther, Susan, and Daisy, things are about to get a little weird. Their freshman year is finally coming to a close and Daisy, Susan, and Esther say goodbye to Catterick Hall forever. Literally forever. It's being bulldozed and re-purposed as a luxury dorm next semester. But as one door closes, another opens and between end of semester hookups, music festivals, and moving into their first home together, the life experiences are just getting started. Written by Eisner Award nominee John Allison (Bad Machinery, Scary Go Round) and illustrated by Max Sarin, Giant Days Volume 5 finishes off freshman year in style, collecting issues #17-20 of the Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated series.

I find this series to be utterly delightful. I read the first volume thinking I might not get into it because it's slice-of-life, but I fell in love with the characters, and it made me laugh. Cut to four volumes later, and I'm still liking it.

Book synchronicity - Esther‘s middle name is Fenella. I just finished Get a Life, Chloe Brown - Red asked Chloe if her middle name was Fenella. I‘ve never encountered this name anywhere before (I‘m guessing it‘s a British thing, and probably of a certain class?), and now twice in as many days.

“When I got here I thought I knew everything. After a year, I'm pretty sure I know nothing.“

This volume covers the end of first year of college for three college roommates and perfectly captures the feelings of nostalgia and hopefulness of that time period.

“If your freak flag is a picture of you going to bed at nine thirty and reading, go for it. Fly it high.“

When I need a break from lines and lines of type too close together,Giant Days is a good place to go.Sharing the college adventures of this cast of characters is always entertaining and fun.

Just got to the States last night and so excited to be reunited with books that didn't fit in my luggage last time. Also put in 30 holds at the library 😂 starting off with these three. Also my only reading resolution this year was to review each book I read on litsy - super fail! I'll be trying to backlog my adult reads at least. Apologies in advance for post bombardment! Also trying the website Litsy out 💻 #mommyreads

If the last volume made me ask why I read this instead of rereading Bad Machinery, this reminded me of why this series is so fun. Daisy's archaeology dig was an absolute delight, and I could legit read just a full volume of the girls going to Ikea on its own. The music festival was a drag until the end, and the rest seemed like a lot of build-up for little result. Unless you count romantic tension between Esther and Ed? Up for it. A fun one.

As always, this was relatable and nostalgic. 3 college roommates (and their male counterparts, also roommates) finish their freshman year of college and move into an off-campus rental house together. I found the pictured snippets particularly relatable

5⭐️ Looking for a relatable series that helps you reminisce your college days, filled with laugh out loud humor ? This is the one. Warning: don‘t read in public. If you choose to do so , do it at your own risk- I have learned my lesson well.

everlocalwest @thevictoriousone Slice of life comics about three friends in college. Most perfect perfect!! 4y
thevictoriousone Definitely adding to my to-read pile! I‘ve been more into the idea of comics lately, so this would be perfect! Are they like short bits that are all put together (if that sentence even makes sense)?? 4y

everlocalwest @thevictoriousone Yeah, they come out as single issues so they are episodic. 4y
thevictoriousone That would be perfect! I don‘t always have much time to sit and read, so being able to take a few minutes to read an episode would be great! Y‘all don‘t have the first one at the store, do you?? 4y

Finished Book 10 of #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon! 🎉 I'm so in love with this series, it is not going downhill! In case you're confused about this frame--the girls are sort of improv role playing in an IKEA...just like all #BFFS should. ☺️❤️ #speechbubblechallenge

Adorable #BFFS. I'm starting to forgive McGraw for overly resembling an ex of mine (esp in personality, which is what makes it hard, plus that's the same ex who used "logic like a blunt force weapon" as I mentioned with a different comic). But I don't want to hate him! #speechbubblechallenge #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon
@Clwojick @TricksyTails

Bookzombie Aww, I‘m sorry he reminds you of an ex. I love McGraw. ☺️ 5y
Natasha.C.Barnes @Bookzombie I know, everyone does! And I want to too! Bc those qualities he shows are wonderful--there had to be a reason I liked the ex at first! It's ok, I'm pulling them apart, learning to love McGraw until/unless he proves himself evil. 😉 5y

This=#allthefeels for me, but not so much in a good way-this is one way I AM like Daisy: trying to be accommodating, getting frustrated, & inappropriately blowing up in front of too many people. Daisy gets rewarded for this outburst but in real life you get the reputation of "the girl who stood on a table a party and yelled at everybody" and that don't go down so well. #speechbubblechallenge #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon

#badassery! So part of why I love this series is that these characters in some ways totally map onto me and my best friends in college (I'm Daisy!), except that this scene would definitely have been played by my Susan, not by me. Daisy is both the baby and the mom of the group, here, and that's pretty unusual...I was just the baby. 😂 #speechbubblechallenge #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon
