BOOM! Box, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, is pleased to announce the March debut of Giant Days, which is a quirky coming-of-age adventure from the creative team of creator John Allison and Disney artist Lissa Treiman. Giant Days Combines the humor of Lumberjanes, the sharp wit of Scott Pilgrim, and the positive power of relationships present in Faith Erin Hicks’ Friends With Boys.
Giant Days centers around Susan, Esther, and Daisy who have just started at university three weeks ago and have became fast friends simply because their dorm rooms are next to each other. Now, away from home for the first time, all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of hand-wringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery-mold, nu-chauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive.
BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon had this to say about Giant Days, “John has over a decade of hilarious web-comic strips chock-full of clever dialogue and unforgettable characters.” Gagnon went on to say, “For Giant Days, John is teaming up with phenom artist Lissa Treiman, to tell a story about a group of buddies navigating their way through the craziness of university.
Giant Days #1 arrives in comic shops on March 18th with a main cover by series artist Lissa Treiman with a cover price of $3.99. Also available in a limited quantity are a 10 Years Anniversary incentive cover by Shelli Paroline & Braden Lamb (Adventure Time, The Midas Flesh), and a retailer incentive cover by Meredith Gran (Adventure Time: Marceline and the Scream Queens).
