I really wasn't looking forward to this issue. I've really fallen in love with these characters. I'm going to miss reading about them. One of the things about non-mainstream comics is that the stories can end. There's no corporate desire to keep a character published so the merchandising can continue. I'm going to expand on this int he review, so let's get started.
Just today, I wrote a raving review of the latest issue of Giant Days. It's one of my favorite series around and in the middle of this review, I check my e-mail and get the word from BOOM! Giant Days is ending.
It's refreshing to see a book that I follow shows up in the solicitations for the next week. It seems like the past couple of weeks have been light on comics that I really rave about. I've said many times before that there's nothing to be gained from writing a negative review just for the sake of a negative review. That brings us to the latest issue of Giant Days. Esther de Groot left in the previous issue for a job interview in London. Given that Esther is the member of the cast that things kind of work out for, it wasn't clear how this would affect the series as a whole.
I spent a week of looking at the week's releases for something good worth reviewing, I was thrilled to see Giant Days #51 coming out next week. The last issue left on a very serious cliffhanger, so I was really eager to read this issue.
I've come to love Giant Days, the wonderful slice-of-life comic series from BOOM! Box, an imprint of BOOM! Studios. I love getting the newest issue, but with any character-driven series that has been running a while, I wish I knew the entire history. That's why I've started the Giant Days Project.
In a continued push to offer more reviews of new comics, this week I'm looking over one of my favorite series from BOOM! Studios, Giant Days. I'm going to try to do this without spoiling anything. I think I succeeded since this review is brief, but as always, be warned.
Giant Days is quickly becoming one of my favorite regular series. Of course, I still have a little trouble keeping the names of all the characters straight, but reading every issue has become a treat. I was a little late to review the previous issue, which was really good. However, I've managed to get to this one right as it arrived to my inbox.
