Giant Days 2017 Special Cover by Jenn St-Onge

BOOM! Studios’ multiple award-nominated series, Giant Days will pay homage (sort of) to the films of Richard Curtis, the Bridget Jones movies and the fictionalized London-as-written-for-Americans in the Giant Days 2017 Special which is set to premiere in November.

When Esther is invited to stay with her friend and mentor, Shelley Winters—who is less a mentor and more utterly mental—she brings Daisy and Susan with her.

The Giant Days 2017 Special is written by series John Allison, with art by Jem & the Misfits  artist Jenn St-Onge.

Season Two will find Letty in peril of losing all of the above as something even more inexorable than the FBI catches up with her – her past.

If ever there was a series for which the song Tainted Love would fit its trailer, it’s Good Behavior! Good Behavior returns Sunday, October 15th (9/8C) Continue reading Sometimes I Want To Kill You Trailer: Good Behavior: Season 2!
