University Life Gets Weird in Giant Days

Giant Days #1 Main Cover

College is a time of discovery and exploration. Learning that missing class isn't the end of the world and there a myriad of varying personalities to mesh with. For Esther, Susan and Daisy in Giant Days, it's also a time when things are going to get a little weird. BOOM! Box is getting John Allison and Lissa Treiman to collaborate on the work that plans to combine the humor of Lumberjanes with the wit of Scott Pilgrim.

“John has over a decade of hilarious webcomic strips chock-full of clever dialogue and unforgettable characters,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “For Giant Days, John is teaming up with phenom artist Lissa Treiman to tell a story about a group of buddies navigating their way through the craziness of university. Get ready: Daisy, Esther, and Susan may become your new best friends.”

Susan, Esther and Daisy started at university three weeks ago and became fast friends because their dorm rooms were next to each other. 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.

Giant Days #1 arrives in comic shops on March 18th with a main cover by Treiman for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code JAN151155. Also available in a limited quantity are a 10 Years Anniversary incentive cover by Shelli Paroline & Braden Lamb and a retailer incentive cover by Meredith Gran. The Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is February 23rd.
