    The artwork is so fun as well; it adds to the humor and the melodrama perfectly, and the bright coloring adds some flair to the already lively panels. There's nothing about this comic I don't like. #1 was a great introduction to these girls, and I was already on board, but #2 truly has me sold. This was a delight to read from start to finish; I seriously can't get enough of Esther, Susan, and Daisy. The three have such distinct personalities but they mesh well and complement each other nicely. It's impossible for me to choose a favorite as they each have their own endearing quirks, and their relationship and interactions are what really have me hooked. Read Full Review

    John Allison and Lissa Treiman have created another witty and colorful comic book with Giant Days #2. Allison's firm grasp of characterisation means he could write any kind of story with his well-established sandbox, and this issue is another true-to-life yet ridiculous insight into the lives of three headstrong teenagers.

    For the most part Giant Days seems to be a series of standalone stories with a slight undercurrent of a story arc between Susan and McGraw. This is a light humorous series that will make you smile as you enjoy some great cartoonish art. Read Full Review

    “Giant Days” #2 is a ton of fun and anyone who likes “Lumberjanes” should be picking this up. Allison, Treiman and Cogar are a great team that's creating a very fun female fronted comic book. “Comics Forward” indeed. Read Full Review

    Despite the lack of an overarching conflict or mission to unite the three main characters, Allison's story entertains. Read Full Review

    Not a lot going on story wise, but the art is great. A nice easy read when looking for a laugh or something light hearted. Read Full Review

    Honestly, I'm not really sure what this series is trying to be or where it's intending on going. It's quirky, sure. But beyond that there isn't really a whole lot that makes me want to keep coming back. The only real on-going storyline is Susan's unexplained beef with her ex-boyfriend (who looks like he's thirty) and it's really not that interesting. Read Full Review
