It’s been just a few months since the hit BOOM! Box series, Giant Days, came to a heart-wrenching conclusion as the girls graduated university and headed off into the cold, unforgiving world of adulthood (give or take a med student), but it’s felt like too long. Luckily, for those of us who are fans of this Beat-selected comic of the decade, as well as those who follow the Random Bobbinsverse (formerly Random Giant Days) account on Twitter, BOOM! is not ready to deprive us of our millennial angst content just yet. Today, the publisher announced the release of The Quotable Giant Days, a collection of “witty and humorous quotes…and panels…” from the series, as well as “brand new illustrations” from the series’ lead artist, Max Sarin.
Written by John Allison, Giant Days follows a trio of young women, Esther, Daisy, and Susan, as they go through university. From this relatively normal premise stems a tidal wave of angst, romance, drama, and surreal adventure. Over the course of more than fifty issues, these three and their friends have been through it all, and now they’ll be here to help guide you through life too.
The Quotable Giant Days will be on sale at comic book stores on July 22, 2020, with a bookstore release to follow on July 28th, 2020.
