If you’re following Giant Days in the double-length hardcover volumes, number 2 is out today, featuring issues 9 to 16, plus my second self-published Giant Days issue. Available in comic shops, good bookshops, and bad bookshops! They’re really handsome editions, and if volume 2 smells as good as volume 1 did, you’re in for an olfactory treat.
Giant Days 34 is in the world and it’s the ED GEMMELL SECRET ORIGINS ISSUE! Brought to you by me (words), MAX SARIN (pencils), LIZ FLEMING (inks), WHITNEY COGAR (colours) and JIM CAMPBELL (letters).
Available in your local comic shop and via Comixology. My UK shop is currently closed but I should have back issues available by the end of the week if you can’t find them anywhere else.

Giant Days 33 is out today, a heartfelt tale of Ms Esther de Groot, rich in gothic intrigue as ever. Brought to you by me (words), MAX SARIN & LIZ FLEMING (pencils & ink), WHITNEY COGAR (colours) and JIM CAMPBELL (letters). It’s our last issue of the year and, I think, one of our best. Get it in comic shops, on Comixology, or in limited quantities from my shop.
What you want at this most seasonal time of the year is a story that is simultaneously a 40-page standalone Giant Days extravaganza and ALSO a Scary Go Round universe unifier that takes you into the weeds of Shelley Winters’ Destroy History London years, right? And it should be tribute to a. Love Actually and b. Bridget Jones except c. I’ve watched both of those films once, years ago, and not particularly carefully? OF COURSE!!!
Brought to you by me, Jenn St-Onge (art), Sarah Stern & Kieran Quigley (colours) and Jim Campbell (letters).
