Giant Days 38 is out today

Giant Days 38 is out today in comic shops and via Comixology! The third year begins in earnest as Daisy, Susan and Esther take up their new dwellings. Featuring guest art by the wonderful JULIA MADRIGAL, who ably fills in for Max Sarin (who drew the cover above) on issues 38 & 39. Returning: colourist WHITNEY COGAR and letterer JIM CAMPBELL.

A REMINDER: next month there’s a double dose of J. Allison-written comics, as my new limited series By Night (created with artist Christine Larsen) debuts on June 13th via Boom! Box. More details soon!

Giant Days 37 out today

There have been many famous issue 37s, like issue 37 of the Incredible Hulk, where Bruce Banner buys a rowing boat (big mistake) and issue 37 of Green Arrow (where Oliver Queen buys a speedboat to his eternal regret), but perhaps the greatest issue 37 of all time is GIANT DAYS 37 by me, MAX SARIN (art), WHITNEY COGAR (colours) and JIM CAMPBELL (letters). In this issue, Daisy has to sort everything out; find out if she does at your local comic shop or on Comixology.

The Giant Days YA adaptation is imminent

In one of the stranger events of my career, Giant Days has been adapted into a prose novel by British author Non Pratt, for US publishing monolith Abrams Books. Non, author of “Remix”, “Trouble” and “Unboxed”, is the safest pair of hands I could have placed my characters in. She has written a very funny book, all the while utilising “well organised notes” and “research”, two things that I have heard about but never really investigated. And her attention to detail on remaining canonical meant I had to answer a lot of difficult (but important) questions.

I whole-heartedly endorse this bizarre off-shoot of my tiny comics empire. I also endorse the cover featuring models dressed up as characters I invented. Bananas.

Giant Days volume 7 is out!

The 7th Giant Days collection (featuring issues 25-28) is available now in comic shops, and next week (from the 27th) in bookshops. It features two of my very favourite issues - #25, the Ptolemy family Christmas spectacular, and #26, all about Dean Thompson’s new love. Plus, Esther gets “politicule” and there’s another Night World chapter.

Art team MAX SARIN, LIZ FLEMING and WHITNEY COGAR were flying by these issues, and who can forget letterer JIM CAMPBELL, whose fine work has graced every issue so far. With a cover by LISSA TREIMAN! 

So, in conclusion: Giant Days Volume 7 is as close to a guarantee of quality as you are ever going to get.
