Giant Days Vol 2 was another quick and fun read. I actually enjoyed this one more than the first! Click here to read my review of Giant Days Vol 1.
My Thoughts on Giant Days, Vol. 2 by John Allison, Lissa Treiman (Illustrator), Max Sarin (Illustrator), Whitney Cogar (Colorist)
I was a bit nervous going into this second volume because I didn’t love the first one. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. This one seemed to be more organized from a storyline point of view, but a few of the transitions were still a bit jarring to me.
In this volume, we follow Susan Ptolemy, Esther De Groot, and Daisy Wooton as they deal with a sociopath, new relationships and boy issues, winter weather, academic tests, and other such situations. And of course, the over-the-top reactions and odd behavior continued in a lovely way.
I thought that the overall tone in this one was less sarcastic, and more humorous, which I appreciated. I was happy to realize that I was chuckling more often reading this volume. I also found that I was more interested in all of the characters in this edition when compared to the first.
My Final Thoughts on Giant Days Vol. 2
I would highly recommend this volume!
Of course, even though I didn’t really care for the first, I would recommend that you start there if you haven’t read it yet, just to get the full picture.
