First Look At Giant Days #40
BOOM! Studios has given us a first look at the upcoming Giant Days #40. Nominated for the Eisner Awards, Giant Days is loved for its strong characterization, and a fantastic visual style that’s appealing to a broad audience. It’s also known for being a wonderful book for female readers, looking for something with a positive depiction of female characters.
Having recently delved into Giant Days, I’m preparing a binge of back issues. This preview has just accelerated that timetable.
Here’s the press release and preview from BOOM! Studios. I first need to mention that with the preparation for our big local convention, HeroesCon, we have neglected the press releases this week from BOOM! about their Young Adult titles, referred to in the press release as BOOM! Box Jam. I wanted to mention that in case there was any confusion.
BOOM! BOX JAM: Your First Look at GIANT DAYS #40
BOOM! Studios is proud to conclude BOOM! Box Jam, a week-long spotlight on the best YA comic books and graphic novels from the award-winning imprint in the coming months, with your first look at GIANT DAYS #40, the latest issue of the 2018 Eisner Award-nominated series from writer John Allison (By Night) and returning series artist Max Sarin.
Ed Gemmel returns to Sheffield after a summer spent healing bones and also his heart. Esther does her best to welcome him back, but neither of them have forgotten his drunken confession… or how he then proceeded to break his ankles. I mean, how much worse could it get, right? …Right?
“If you’re a Giant Days fan, you’ll want to pick up this issue. The series hits the #40 milestone with a big issue, featuring the repair of broken hearts…and broken bones,” said Shannon Watters, Senior Editor, BOOM!
