    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 25, 2018

    Gogi's trials also mimic those of humanity in this post-apocalyptic world.  If he can rise up from the depths and find peace, perhaps there's hope for humanity as a whole.  This is represented beautifully in the closing pages as Gogi's family comes together in the face of total devastation.  Giants could have been another in a long line of comics about a big monster destroying a city with some helpless humans running for their lives.  Instead, it reaches a new level with some strong characters and incredible artwork that sets it apart from the average kaiju tale.  Although Gogi and Zedo have little to no hope of taking out creatures like Sheik and Wraith, their story becomes more compelling because they're just trying to survive.  They're scraping together what small bits of happiness they can find to create a life in this horrific world which leads to a pretty inspiring arc.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 18, 2018

    I really enjoyed Giants from start to finish but I also recognize that it needed a wholly different way of being told. That's a frustration with several series I've been reading the last few years in that they come across more as plot points and superficial moments rather than taking the time to build the world, explore the characters, and tell a tale. Giants has a lot going for it in the concept and the design of it all with the artwork, but it's something that needed a proper Japanese style run for its serialization in order to get anywhere near its true potential. A good project but one that can't achieve what it can be. Read Full Review

    It's not all happy endings, but this issue definitely left one eager to return to the land of Giants. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Elias Rosner Apr 19, 2018

    We need more Giants if only to allow the Valderramas to explore a world they werent given enough time or pages to explore. As a conclusion, this issue felt rushed and underdeveloped but as a piece of comic art, it was beautiful and tense. Read Full Review
