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.
