    After being rejected by beautiful Goth princess Esther, Ed Gemmell’s been mending his broke heart (and ankles) with Amazonian Aussie babe Extreme Sports Nina – and the two have fallen in love! So, irony of ironies, when Ess sees Ed and Neen together for the first time, she realises she’s in love with Ed too! Two drop-dead gorges chasing after you? Ed, mate: hi-fucking-five! And TEACH ME!

So, irony of ironies, when Ess sees Ed and Neen together for the first time, she realises she’s in love with Ed too! Two drop-dead gorges chasing after you? Ed, mate: hi-fucking-five! And TEACH ME! To cobble together the pennies for a plane ticket to visit Neen’s parents in Oz over the holidays (see the spin-off Chrimbo special for how that went), Ed goes to work at a pop-up Christmas Market - that’s definitely not a cult - with Daisy. And as Valenbrimes Day approaches, McGraw plays an unlikely cupid to Ess and a new beau while Daisy falls for a new car-crash student, Coralie. Artist Max Sarin is back and so is Giant Days’ untouchable quality – Volume 11 is flawless. It’s corny but I love the will-they, won’t-they Ess/Ed thing. And I really like Neen too and I want her and Ed to be happy! So clearly an Ed Gemmell clone storyline, complete with jean jackets, must now happen to satisfy all. Daisy and Ed getting brainwashed by charismatic manipulator Cliff was so funny and the smash cuts from Ed storming into Cliff’s office to getting totally bamboozled made me laugh out loud twice. They don’t really have a big part to play in this book but Susan and McGraw have become the warm gooey centre of Giant Days. Susan feeding McGraw lasagne on the floor and McGraw’s words to Susan on Valembrines Day were beyond adorbs. I love those guys so much! And I was happy to see Ess get some herself after doing the decent thing for Ed and Neen – her whirlwind romance looks like it’s going to be a fun future storyline. 11 volumes in and this series isn’t letting up on the goods – if anything, it’s getting better! Giant Days: if I could replace my blood with it, I would.

    Well! After an uneventful and pretty unmemorable volume, this is All About Memorable, in that Ed's (surprise) new girlfriend Nina takes him home to see her Australian family! Lots of fun in the down under. Can non-athlete Ed hold up under the All Sports All the Time environment? (correct) (But how is Esther doing about this? Well, read it, but this creates a realization in her she hadn't anticipated. But Nina is a very likable character! Hard to hate, even for Esther lovers! And speaking of Well!

    actual rating: 3.5 As always, this was a really cute volume but there wasn't really anything in here that blew me away or made me laugh at out loud. Also I feel like it covered a really big chunk of time - like half of their year! Going at this pace there's probably only going to be one or maybe two more volumes and that makes me sad. Also I really love Nina, and not just because I'm sick to death of the whole ~will they won't they~ thing with Ed and Esther [but kudos to her for doing the right actual rating: 3.5 As always, this was a really cute volume but there wasn't really anything in here that blew me away or made me laugh at out loud.

    I think I laughed out loud more often in this volume than in any previous. This series is still firing on all cylinders, with the humor, the drama, the relationships, and the characters all in sync. We get a Christmas adventure with Cult-like influences, aftershocks of a bad breakup, and a trip to Australia; each situation is full of laughs and drama, much of which plays out in unexpected, but completely in character, ways.

    How can everyone in this book be so RIDICULOUS and yet so emotionally competent at the same time? I don't know but I love it and love everyone. Note: this book is extra fat because it includes the special Christmas issue illustrated by John Allison where Ed Gemmell travels to Australia for some shenanigans. Nice.

    OMG!!! This was soooooo good. I love this series so much but it manages to keep getting better and staying true to the source? I genuinely don't want it to end, although I know it has to. I did like the focus on some of the other characters this issue (it's a big one!). I really like that you can pick this up after a while and still know the story (as we've seen with previous comics)!!

    Wooo, this is a nice, thick one! I wasn't really sure where things were going at the end of the last volume, but I should not have worried. Same old girls, same old boys, same old wonderful. I love Esther hanging out with McGraw and Susan just being fascinated by it ("People don't take her seriously, and I think they should." !!!). I love how Daisy is dealing with her breakup with Ingrid and how protective Susan and Esther are of her, and how she accidentally joins a "cult" (OF COURSE SHE DOES). Wooo, this is a nice, thick one!

I love Esther realizing she's in love and then deciding to just be a wonderful, supportive friend. And then, naturally going out and falling immediately in love with yet another of the completely unlikely dudes she's fallen for. I love Susan feeding McGraw lasagna as he passes out on the floor from helping the infamous Cliff again. And I love Ed Gemmell and Nina--they are totally adorable and I think she's great! Also...the naked dude with the Ubuntu tattoo--HA! Pretty sure I know who that is, but we shall see... So yes, I am still completely and madly in love with Giant Days and am so, so, so looking forward to the next one. I HOPE THIS SERIES GOES ON FOREVER!!!

    Hmm there's a totally unnecessary part where the trio dress up for Halloween and Esther dresses as a Geisha with a mask and the fact that it's cultural appropriation is made fun of in the text but it also goes nowhere, so it's just painful for no reason?? Otherwise this volume was just as delightful as the rest...

    More fun with my favorite young Brits. I liked the Ed Gemmel storylines, and Susan and McGraw made me laugh. Daisy’s and Esther’s stories weren’t that great this time, although I did love the insistence on the lion costume.

    You can tell this series is winding down. I still love reading it, and am still over the top excited when we get the latest issue in, but lately it seems like John Allison is getting tired of writing it. I mean, there's only so many times/different ways recurring plot points can be re-spun. Only so many ways Esther can be Ground Zero/Epicenter for chaos... Only so many things one can do with Susan and McGraw's Opposites Attract dynamic... Only so many Big Hair jokes that can be made about Daisy. You can tell this series is winding down.

Like the characters' final months at University, things are winding down for this series and getting ready to be wrapped up. Don't get me wrong. It's still enjoyable, and I still love the characters. I guess what I'm saying is the series is just not as fresh as it was when it first started. But it's had a good run. And I still plan to see it through until the end. But I DO think everyone has Senior-itus...including the author. p.s. Does anyone else think Susan is a way better fit with Dean? With them, it's like the meeting of two Evil Masterminds. And it would work swimmingly....as long as they didn't murder each other.

    In this eleventh volume of the most excellent Giant Days graphic novel, much of the same is going on despite many differences in the subtleties of university life. There’s Susan, working her way one shift after another through medical school, going home and meeting McGraw as they live together. He’s still helping the neighbor when he can, but sometimes to the detriment of his own life. Daisy refuses to go back to her crazy ex, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t looking for something else.

    The last volume of Giant Days was such a win for me that this one felt like a bit of a letdown. Of course, I'm still incredibly invested in the characters, the artwork, and the all-around vibe (ie: comforting, funny, warm, real). However, the issue where Ed traveled to Australia didn't really do it for me. A lot of the plot lines fell flat. It just wasn't as interesting as previous volumes. With a series that's gone on as long as this one has, that's bound to happen. Some arcs are better than The last volume of Giant Days was such a win for me that this one felt like a bit of a letdown.

    Daisy: "Who could that be, at Clannad hour?" So fun. I think Daisy has the best arc here. There's also lots about Ed Gemmell, who has become a major character. And I hope we see more of Saffy and Neen. McGraw is a supporting character but so lovable. Best putdown ever: "You're the most fascinating person I've ever met. But you're not very nice." (Response: "I could be nice!") "So that's why I am never getting back together with you."

    Allison's hard work developing the characters' arcs is really paying off here. The best part however is that these arcs aren't drastic shifts in character, but far more subtle growth as would be expected in real life. Daisy, for example, is still an awkward push-over at times but has learned to stand up for herself when needed. I really hope he can stick the landing.
