Reading a new issue of Giant Days from BOOM! Box is like taking in a deep breath of fresh air. Sure, you've got pretty relatable situations being laid out in each issue, but that's part of the fun. Written by John Allison, with art by Max Sarin, Giant Days takes a clever look at the everyday.
Giant Days #8 deals with Esther's new boyfriend who also happens to be a faculty member. Somehow this affects all of her friends. As the group deals with the brutal winter that has arrived, things get interesting…
It's the small details that make this comic so enjoyable to read. Looking at the panel above, the hearts that are flying from Esther's head compared to the panic looked on her new man's face, really add to the scene.
The panel below is one that made me laugh out loud. I'll tell you Esther and Susan's interactions throughout the issue are what make this issue very funny. Susan is so far on the opposite spectrum of how to deal with relationships, but I can't really blame her. I think we all need a friend that throws our cupcakes out the window, don't you?
Will Esther succumb to her new boyfriends wishes, and change her pale faced quirky ways? Or will she realize that it's better to stay true to who she is? Don't worry, I won't spoil it for you. Overall, Giant Days continues to be a light, enjoyable read. BOOM! Box cranks out a lot of fun comics like this one and I'm happy to continue to support them. Be sure to pick up Giant Days #8 this week.
