GiantDays_06_feat

I've heard tales of Northampton, and because of those tales I have never visited. No, I'm sure it's fine; a picturesque town in the heart of England. It's probably not at all the dangerous and vengeful place it's hinted to be in this prevew of Giant Days #6 by John Allison and Lissa Treiman, which sees university friends Esther and Daisy on the search for the third of their cohort, Susan, in the unfamiliar territory of her home town.

Thumbnail: In Praise of ‘Giant Days’ Approach to Internetting

IMG_0082

John Allison and Lissa Treiman's Giant Days is a lot of things: fun, entertaining, silly, cute... but it also offers some interesting commentary on the world of the internet in issue 3. The gang at the center of Giant Days (Esther, Daisy, and Susan) encounter some crappy times with the internet that are all too reminiscent of real women's dealings with internet creeps. The story is handled with just enough humor and sincerity to make it thoughtful without being preachy. Spoilers ahead!

The Foxy Boxer Returns: John Allison and Lissa Treiman Bring ‘Giant Days’ to Boom Box

Untitled-1

If you've ever wanted a thoroughly authentic glimpse at modern university life which sometimes also features extended sections of foxy boxing, then ComicsAlliance has some very good news ahead for you: Boom Box have announced that they'll be bringing a new story from John Allison's Giant Days to print in March of next year.

Following a group of girls - and their doting hangers-on - during Fresher's Week at uni and beyond, the series features all the familiar perils of life away from home; flu, food thefts, tutus, Enya; all the familiar perils. With the move to Boom Box, however, the series is going off in a new direction from the original webcomic. Allison will write, but artist Lissa Treiman will be coming in to pencil all six issues - that's her cover for issue #1 you can see up top.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – 09.06.13

Untitled-112

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.
