    Boyfriends and girlfriends behave badly threatening friendships left and right in Giant Days Volume 8! Daisy’s girlfriend Ingrid runs up a disastrous heating bill forcing poor Daisy to choose between her love and her best friends Esther and Susan.

Will he and Ed Gemmell (sporting an unwise Anakin Skywalker braid) survive Emilia’s brothers’ wrath? Also - find out McGraw’s first name! I’m not even surprised at the consistently high quality of Giant Days anymore. John Allison and Max Sarin have delivered every single time before, and continue to, that I just save up these comics for when an arc completes, pick a time when I can enjoy them, and smile my way through another flawless read! If you’re unfamiliar with the series that summary might read like a cheeseball Hollyoaks knockoff but Giant Days is so much better than that. It’s a unique blend of inventive, imaginative comedy and young adult drama flawlessly executed by a creative team who can’t seem to put a foot wrong. Writing and art is first class all the way, once again. The characters and their stories continue to grow in new and compelling ways. I loved McGraw’s moustache origins, Daisy hustling rugby players at pool, and the little details as always - the Jeff Goldblum shower curtain, Esther’s gossip hat, and the gentle ribbing of triggered snowflakes on campus and the dominance of Funko Pop at comics shops these days. And I love where the series is headed too - who will end up living with who? Is John Allison slowly steering Ed towards Esther for their star-crossed romance (fingers crossed)?? These seemingly small questions become so big when you have a writer this good who can get you deeply invested in their characters! To anyone who wants to read a cracking non-superhero comic, this is it (not that I wouldn’t recommend this to superhero comics readers either!). It’s the greatest comic in the world, bar none, and Volume 8 only further highlights that. POWERFUL Giant Days!

    I'm sad to say that this volume was a little rough for me :( everything felt really disconnected for the first two issues so I had a hard time getting back into the swing of things. HOWEVER McGraw has my whole heart and I am extreeeeemely excited to see how things go in the next volume!

    The end of second year for Susan, Daisy, and Esther, and though the pace is just as frenetic as always, and the jokes just keep on coming, things appear more serious than ever, and we can begin to see that they may not be together for always! Yes, sorry, Real Life intervenes for them as it does for us all, and yes, uni life may indeed come to an end! But not for at least a couple years, at least, don’t worry, so let’s go to the pub! Things will change pretty dramatically for them as a trio next The end of second year for Susan, Daisy, and Esther, and though the pace is just as frenetic as always, and the jokes just keep on coming, things appear more serious than ever, and we can begin to see that they may not be together for always! Yes, sorry, Real Life intervenes for them as it does for us all, and yes, uni life may indeed come to an end! But not for at least a couple years, at least, don’t worry, so let’s go to the pub! Things will change pretty dramatically for them as a trio next year, but one can see they will be still fundamentally connected as bff. Events (ones that I can share without making the great Unread annoyed): *Daisy’s irritating girlfriend Ingrid is great in creating tensions between the three, such as running up the heating bill to astronomical heights. Requiring Daisy to face off a gaggle of footballers in betting at pool to see if she can raise the cash *We actually find out McGraw’s real name! (No, not from me, not ever!) *McGraw has been in a secret relationship—okay, an affair!--for months (okay, I’ll say it, sorry) with Susan, (yes, back together, yay!) *Esther becomes friends with Emilia, McGraw’s Actual Girlfriend (yes, whom McGraw is cheating on! Pay attention!). *We find the origin to McGraw’s moustache, which involves a former girlfriend. *Esther’s gossip hat Otherwise, it’s just uni days as usual, going to classes, living in a disastrous old house, supporting each other (and responsibly rescuing drunk people at parties). Max Sarin is keeping up the manic pace with Alison, visually just as silly, with lots of pop references throughout to make one smile. It took me (an American, after all) a volume to get into this, but my rating has been gradually, incrementally creeping up to my first five star, though I am rather certain a reread that I will do of the whole series will probably make almost all of it five stars, because it is really good fun, and so well done. Why five stars now? Because the volume seems less episodic, and somehow more cohesive, and thoughtful, even as splits threaten. Serious Issues That Young People Face are being faced, and though on some level this might point to less manic fun, it feels like the series may actually have the potential to really deepen, as the group moves toward growing up. My fave so far.

    Eight volumes in, Giant Days is still the best damn comic. Love it to bits.

    A pleasant diversion, as always, with some added dramatic heft as renewal time for the roommates' lease promises to shake up the status quo. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how it all turns out next volume.

    Definitely one of my favorite volumes of the series! 32 issues in, and still going so strong. These characters continue to make my heart happy.

    Yes! Giant Days! It is so great, one of the best looks at college life ever. Esther, Daisy and Susan feel like my friends, and I have a bit of a crush on McGraw.

    Before I start, I want to be clear when I say I adore this series and I love the topics they touch on, and the way they go about telling the stories of normal college students ... but... I did find this collection to be a little less focused than usual. I wanted more flow between subjects and storylines. I didn;t necessarily dislike any storyline they used, I just wanted them to be more fleshed out, and connected throughout the issues that made up this volume.

I didn;t necessarily dislike any storyline they used, I just wanted them to be more fleshed out, and connected throughout the issues that made up this volume. I found issue 29 held no real purpose to the others except to show us a friendship that to me felt rushed. Again, I love this series very much, and it will remain one of my favourite comic series to date - but this collection was not my favourite.

    A really great end to the girls' second year [unless of course they throw a random one-off issue into the next volume like last time] and I can't wait to see what happens in year three! A lot of relationship drama in this issue but it's incredibly realistic and relatable so I actually didn't mind for once [gasp]. Some highlights: super special awesome rare collector's edition bill #relatable content: fandom edition GIRLS HELPING GIRLS!

    Look, this was fun until it lasted. I can feel myself getting bored with the story...because there's no story whatsoever. The plot is very much a slice of life kinda thing and there's nothing pushing the story forward so...I think I'm gonna stop reading this graphic novel. Not because it's bad (it really actually isn't) but simply because I'm starting to feel detached and bored. I love all the characters and how diverse this is but the story has just become...dull. Susan will forever be my favour Look, this was fun until it lasted. I can feel myself getting bored with the story...because there's no story whatsoever.

    (Content note: Sexual assault.) Originally had it at 4 stars, but the more I thought about a scene that takes place early in the book, the more irritated I became. At one point, Esther is at a party with one of her professors, who gets her incredibly drunk and attempts to take her home. She's saved by another character, but the whole incident isn't treated as seriously as it should be (in one panel the professors even gropes Esther, and her breasts are drawn cartoonishly big).

They even make a joke about Esther saying the professor wants to make her breakfast with a sausage. It's then literally never brought up again for the rest of the volume. Seriously disappointed in the writers for this.

    These books always make me laugh out loud. I loved everything about Volume 8 except for the cliffhanger. I need to know my girls will be OK!

    I was finally starting to love this series but, unfortunately, Giant Days, Vol. 8 is not as good as the previous two volumes... In particular, some of the jokes fell flat to me, and the whole mood is rather somber (especially the ending!) because the unshakable friendships are quite shaky in this volume. Still, looking forward to seeing what's next :)

    Probably I should've saved this, so the wait for the next one wouldn't seem so long. But I couldn't. I love it too much.

    Kristin

    This volume was painful, but in the best possible way. Tensions from the last volume comes to a boiling point and big decisions have to be made. Daisy's continued defense of her selfish girlfriend is confounding until you remember this is her first relationships and how earth-shatteringly scary the end of your first relationship feels. That some of the potential changes here made me sick to my stomach is a testament to how Alison's characters feel like real people.

    This continues to be a comic that both shows me something entirely new and that also feels so familiar in reflecting on my own uni days and the friendships that meant just as much, if not more than my actual schooling. The illustrations are every bit as wonderful as all the other volumes that precede this one and once again our characters experience some growing pains that mean reshaping their lives together. Funny, sweet, and fabulously strange, I always look forward to more.

    Giants Days has had some weightier issues before, but this whole volume covered some heavier topics than normal. Which, by the way, I completely enjoyed. I felt that some of the storylines were a little disjointed, but that didn't bother me too much. The Ingrid storyline has room to go somewhere not great in the future, but this is particularly close hitting thread for me and so far, I think it's good.

    Oh no, my girls have hit a rough patch! This whole volume was a spiral into the hell of change, and I can't wait to see how they'll pull through as friends (because they definitely will, right??). I love Ester, Susan, and Daisy so much! So much drama this volume, but I was still laughing quite a bit, and the art is as bright and fun as ever. Another great volume, can't wait for #9!

    This volume is definitely less focused than most, but man, the "to-be-continued..." ending! Things are really coming to a head! What's gonna happen?!?!?! I think they'll be fine. At least, I hope they will!
