Giant Days Brings The Holiday Cheer With An All New Special

BOOM! Studios has announced Giant Days: Where Women Glow and Men Plunder #1, an all-new oversized special from creator John Allison celebrating the holidays in December 2018. You see, Ed Gemmell has a girlfriend and with Christmas looming, it’s time to meet her family—in Australia. Which is fine. Who cares that they’re all Manly Men! Ed once…did something manly. That one time. It happened. It’s going to be fine.

Launched in 2015 under BOOM! Studios’ YA-focused BOOM! Box imprint, Giant Days was originally solicited as a limited series chronicling the college adventures of Susan, Esther, and Daisy, but strong sales and critical acclaim propelled it to become an ongoing series that has earned numerous Eisner and Harvey award nominations. While the original webcomic from 2011 was both written and illustrated by Allison, Giant Days has featured the art of acclaimed artists including Lissa Treiman, Max Sarin, Liz Fleming, Julia Madrigal, Jenn St-Onge and more. The world of Giant Days has expanded to include young adult novels at Abrams Books and two previous critically-acclaimed holiday specials. This holiday special marks the first time that John Allison has both written and illustrated a full-length issue of Giant Days at BOOM! Studios.
