    In the end, I’m just a really big fan of this series. There are so many elements of it that I can relate to, and that in and of itself makes it worth reading. The amazing writing and striking artwork/colors are a bonus, too. If you’re a college kid/recent graduate, or you’re just interested in and/or miss your college years, I’d say this book is perfect for you. Any “young adult” (I keep putting it in quotes because you’ll understand it, but I hate that term) will understand and respect this series. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Tricia Ellis Jul 17, 2015

    Crushes are unrequited, drinks are drunk, dances are danced, and the issue feels more like a pleasant time spent with friends than a means to advance the story. Those friends are lovely friends, though, and as with every issue of this wordy, funny and stylish series, you'll want to revisit the issue over and over again. Read Full Review

    Giant Days has always had me grinning from start to finish, and #5 was no exception. Though the melodrama seemed toned down in this issue, I have no complaints, because at this point in the series, we've got well-established characters and relationships, and they are rightfully the heart of this story.

    Comicosity - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Jul 15, 2015

    Giant Daysentertains and surprises with authentic friendships, unpredictable plot twists, and nonstop humor. Lissa Treiman and Whitney Cogar give each character unique style and memorable characterization. One of the strengths of this series is that Esther, Susan, and Daisy each deal with relationship disappointments and drama on their own terms. John Allison writes a funny and enjoyable story about friends navigating college life together. Read Full Review
