Exclusive Preview: College Shenanigans in ‘Giant Days #4′
Giant Days #4 comes out this week, and it looks to be another hilarious issue of the entertaining series about college friends. One of the gang turns 18, and that means it's time for a party... but with less drinking than you would think, given that they live in England. Plus, hilarity over zine bootlegs! Writer/creator John Allison and artist Lissa Treiman look like they've really hit their stride together. Check out ComicsAlliance's exclusive preview below!
It's probably obvious by now, but I'm a big fan of Giant Days. It's charming, witty, and hilarious. The friendship between the three leads is sweet but not needlessly saccharine. They look out for each other, as you can see in the preview with Susan and Esther patting themselves on the back over being "good mums" to Daisy, the birthday girl. Plus, there are college shenanigans of a sort that are easily relatable - even for people who didn't have a "traditional" college experience. Check out the preview below to get a sneak peek of the issue!
