"Originally published in single magazine form as Giant Days No. 1-4."--colophon.
"Susan, Esther, and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of hand-wringing boys, "personal experimentation," influenza, mystery-mold, nu-chauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of "academia," they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive. Going off to university is always a time of change and growth, but for Esther, Susan, and Daisy, things are about to get a little weird."--provided from Amazon.com.

Summary / Annotation
Good light fun
submitted by eknapp on September 17, 2016, 7:48pm
Three college freshmen in England, a naif, a free spirited semi-goth, and a practical everygirl. Giant Days tells small stories: a reviled ex-boyfriend transfers in, a bet about who's more drama-prone, a little bi-curiosity, a shameful reaction to a sexist hot-students list.
The tone is light and moderately amusing. The dialogue is sharp. The illustration is clear and functional but unexceptional. Giant Days isn't my new favorite thing but it's enjoyable enough. I'll happily read v2 if it falls in my lap but I probably won't chase it down.
Good, but a little Confusing submitted by feshile on June 23, 2017, 10:21am This book is quite good, and it handles some touchy topics very well, but I found it a little confusing. It kind of jumps from topic to topic and you have to pay attention really well to get it the first time. All in all I would recommend this book to teens who want a quick and easy read to enjoy.
Did someone follow me around in college?

This comic was so similar to my first year of college. It's a little creepy.
Our characters navigate roommates, getting sick for the first time away from home, relationships, and just generally being without supervision for the first time in their young lives. They make mistakes, have successes, and generally flail at trying to be adults. I was deeply entertained by this comic, that I rushed out and got the next three volumes!
One of my current favorite comics submitted by Bruno Exists on July 6, 2019, 7:58pm Although I haven't attended college yet, I presume it'll play out something like this. Giant Days is a great series all around. The characters are lovable and well-written and I relate to all of them in different ways. The artwork and stories are wacky and entertaining, and there's just so much going on on each page. I highly recommend it! (if only the library had volume four..)
Great submitted by majean on August 2, 2020, 10:32pm This first volume got me hooked. Relatable, even if it has been so many years since I graduated.
