My 6 Favourite Quotes - Giant Days Volume 6

Title: Giant Days Volume Six

Author: John Allison

Publisher: Boom Box

Release Date: October 2017

Second year begins and Daisy, Susan, and Esther have taken their friendship commitment to the next level by moving into their “beautiful home”, off-campus. But the keys didn’t come without a whole new level of responsibility. Unwanted suitor visits, a robbery, and Susan living only a few blocks apart from her ex-boyfriend, McGraw has made the dorms feel like a haven. The girls are in for a dose of reality when they learn that there’s more to being an adult than paying your own rent.

Eisner Award nominee John Allison (BadMachinery, Scary Go Round) and illustrator Max Sarin, welcome you back to Sophomore year in Giant Days Volume 6, collecting issues #21-24 of the critically acclaimed series.

To recap our lovely trio of ladies are...

  • Susan Ptolemy - The one with the most common sense, she keeps the other two on the straight and narrow (most of the time), she’s a bit of a slob and you’ll be happy to learn she’s studying medicine!
  • Esther de Groot - Goth goddess, fashion icon, attractor of men and women, drama queen, accident prone, student of English lit.  Loyal friend.  Life of the party.
  • Daisy Wooton - She is said to 50% hair and 100% not ready for this world, she is sweet and innocent, raised by her loving granny.  She is struggling a little with her sexuality and is definitely not prepared for drinking and partying.  Archaeology student.

Volume 6 disaster strikes and the girls are the victims of a break in, its not all bad Daisy reacquaints herself with the volatile Ingrid, Susan’s dad moves in and Esther finds herself a new job in a comic book store resulting in unrequited attention of its patrons.

Giant Days has some cracking quotes, these are my favourites from this volume.

#1 - Esther on being asked to clean another oven at Baker Max

“God why do you torment your darkling daughter so? Send me a sign that you haven’t forgotten me.”

#2 - Ed being asked by Susan to prepare Daisy and Esther for going to the rough pub

“You want me to what, Susan? Prepare an area where two naive idiots can watch Roadhouse starring Patrick Swayze?”

#3 - Esther on finding out her elderly neighbour worked at a sandwich factory that introduced the triangular sandwich packet.

“I can’t imagine life before the triangular sandwich packet, it must have been a bloodbath”

#4 - Daisy on the clientele of the rough pub

“They look like the sort of men who get straight on the old cannibalism, post-apocalypse”

#5 - Esther describing her Halloween costume to Susan 

“A sexy haunted speedboat, Susan. Driverless, sunk, razzing it up on the ocean bed”

#6 - Susan’s reasoning for becoming a doctor

“I’m only becoming a doctor so I can write prescriptions for myself”

Still consistently brilliant! On to volume 7!
