    Giant Days Holiday Special 20118 is a fun fish out of water comedy full of the gentle and surreal humor and relatable characters that Giant Days is known for. It was brave to focus almost solely on one character but Allison uses his writing and art skills to create a really good holiday special. Read Full Review

    However, besides the character development of Ed Gemmell, this issue is great fun. Nina's family dynamics and the rivalry between Australian towns is great. I enjoyed exploring more of Nina's background and seeing how her life in Australia is full of ridiculous politics and sausages. Because nothing says 'Christmas' like a giant barbecue event.
