    This is a great read. There is a lot of emotion, tons of great characterization, and reason for readers to give a damn about the characters. It’s a book—fiction—but I feel like I’ve become friends with these people. Any book that can make me feel that comfortable reading it is fine by me. Read Full Review

    Just a wonderful slice of life, even when our girls are on a downer they do not fail to raise a smile. Read Full Review

    I deeply love Giant Days and I've not spent one review and one essay trying to explain why and I don't know that I totally have. It's funny and sweet (and a hell of a lot less twee than it has any business being), but it's also, as any great book is, extremely specific. Allison is writing a certain well defined group of characters in a specific quirky way aided by the appropriate style of Max Sarin. It's a book with a voice and an energy all to itself and, while that probably means it won't be for everyone, for those like me who have been won over by its charms, issue sixteen is a pleasant reminder that the book continues to fire on all cylinders.

    Best of all, Giant Daysis the perfect gift to hook your non-comics-reading friends as each issue is more or less standalone and – as mentioned previously – there's nary a cape nor cowl to be seen. And the more fans of sweet, daft comics there are the better, really. Read Full Review
