    The world that Allison and Treiman have created here is real. The relationship webs weaving in and out of Giant Days feel tangible, their connections believable and endearing. This is a contemporary and forward-thinking comic book, for anyone who enjoys the vibe that Stewart, Cloonan, Tarr and Fletcher bring to their fledgling Batgirl-verse. Allison and Treiman are both at the top of their respective games here, and with that in mind, Giant Days #6 recieves a perfect 10. Read Full Review

    Lastly, I assume that John Allison was never a woman, but he really does capture these female voices extremely well. Each character is not only distinct, but I have genuine feelings for them. I experience their highs and lows, their successes and their failures. In fact, I was talking to my colleague Paul about this the other day, and he said, “You know, I just want to be all their friends.” I think that's so perfect. That's what I want, too.

    Giant Days #6 is an incredible amount of fun. It is a joy to tag along with these characters on their misadventures. And despite the generally low stakes, the issue never feels slight. Instead, it captures the whimsy and aimless propulsion of college-life, making you want to run ahead even if it's unclear why. There are good friends and good times to be had, and that's more than enough. Read Full Review

    This issue is less relatable than the rest have been, but still feels natural for our three protagonists. At the end, it becomes just as realistic as the rest again, so I’m looking forward to next issue. I have no idea how Esther is going to prepare for exams in just two weeks, but it will be entertaining to watch her do so. Keep reading so you don’t miss any of Giant Days’ coolness.

    Giant Days was originally a 6 issue series, but due to very popular demand BOOM has extended it to a 12 issue run. While it is sad to see Treiman go (though shell remain on covers), the artist Max Sarin will be stepping into the saddle next month. Checking out her Tumbler, she does seem like she will be a worthy successor to Treiman. Cannot wait to see the art on issue 7. Read Full Review

    Not the best the series can deliver but far from a disaster. Read Full Review

    There's an awful lot of plot and exposition crammed into this issue that seems like it could have been drawn out a little longer, but there are no shortage of sweet, funny, familiar moments along the way. Read Full Review
