Giant Days Volume 8: 12/13/18
Giant Days Volume 8 by John Allison comes at the end of the second year at university. This one is all about rivalries, tested friendships, and bad boyfriends and girlfriends.
In previous volumes I've fan-girled most heavily over Daisy but volume, especially the first chapter (issue) featuring Esther finding her groove and then being thwarted by a devious bohemian had me in stitches. I'm frankly shocked that I didn't live blog all my favorite panels.
Susan's adorable but difficult to live with girlfriend is driving force for the middle section of this volume. She doesn't do cold. She steals food. She doesn't wash up. She leaves spoons in bedrooms, and so forth. There's a hilarious point where Daisy tries to move into her girlfriend's dorm to sleep on a shelf out of the way. It doesn't go well.
Volume 9 which collects issues 33-36 comes out in February, 2019.
