Flashback to freshman year with Esther, Susan and Daisy to see how they first met and became the best of friends, in these bonus Giant Days stories.
Take a trip through the past in these early Giant Days stories, and discover the origin of Daisy, Esther and Susan’s friendship as they embark on orientation, getting-to-know-you-exercises, and collisions with a secret society devoted to Black Metal.
Collecting the original, self-published Giant Days comics for the first time, creator John Allison (Bad Machinery, Scary Go Round) takes us back to where it all started in Giant Days: Early Registration.
Daisy, Esther, and Susan are just starting university in this prequel to Giant Days. They meet when they first move into their residence. Though they have completely different personalities, they get along and become friends quickly.
This is a great prequel to the Giant Days graphic novel series. Daisy, Esther, and Susan are so different, that it’s hard to see how they became friends. Though they had different interests, they respected each other’s decisions and ideas, so they got along well.
This graphic novel was as funny as the other ones. Ed Gemmel was pining over Esther, even though she had other boyfriends. He would do anything she wanted, including go to an emo underground club. Daisy’s awkward behaviour and Susan’s sarcastic quips were also hilarious.
I really enjoyed this Giant Days prequel!
