One of the questions I’ve been asked the most over the last four years is “when will there be more Giant Days?” The first issue was a real stab in the dark at a time when I was feeling creatively under the weather, and it steadied the ship. The two issues that came out in 2013 felt like they had a momentum that I didn’t have the energy to fully pursue while working on Bad Machinery. So last spring I asked Boom! Studios if they’d be interested in publishing it as a six-issue limited series with me writing and one of my favourite artists, Lissa Treiman, drawing it. And here we are!
If you enjoyed Giant Days in print or when it ran on the site, this new series carries on where we left off. If you’re new to the series, the first Boom! Box issue will not leave you high and dry.
If you like the series and want to see more of Esther, Daisy and Susan, please, please tell your friends, join the Facebook page, tell Boom you love it, but most importantly, buy it. Everyone’s worked really hard to make it special, and I couldn’t be more proud of what Lissa, Whitney, Jim, Kara, Jasmine and Shannon have done with my little comics world.
I have a few upcoming events to promote a. the launch of Giant Days, b. Bad Machinery book 3, c. my own wretched cult of personality.
London Super Comic Con - Excel Centre, March 14th &15th
A mere two tables away from Jonathan Ross (host of Saturday Zoo) at table A3, come and see me enjoying the world of strength and super-heroism, remote from everything and everyone I have ever loved.
Giant Days Signing - Orbital Comics, London - March 28th 2-4pm
I will be signing copies of the all-new, all-different Giant Days #1 at this fine, fancy Central London shop. Please do come by and say hello. I will be sitting behind a table for the sole purpose of meeting you. I’ve even drawn a poster (below).
Dear VALUED FRIEND,
would you like to do me a favour at no cost to yourself besides your precious time? Perhaps you’d be so kind as to review Bad Machinery 3: The Case Of The Simple Soul on amazon.co.uk, amazon.com, or Goodreads. If you’re reading these words, you’ve probably read the story. Its the one about a troll, some fires, and Little Claire. It’s not the one about onions. Your reviews were a huge help when we put book 2 out.
Many thanks in advance. You’re the best in the business.
I can’t remember if I’ve done a news post about this before, but there’s a new Giant Days 6-issue series coming in March from BOOM! Box, Boom Studios’ creator-owned imprint. I’m writing, with art by LISSA TREIMAN (I had to resist the urge to write “Laughing Lissa Treiman” there, Stan Lee style).
I’ve done an interview with Comic Book Resources about it that hopefully answers any vexed questions you might have. The Previews order code for your local comic shop is JAN151155. Or ask for it by name!
