    Eh. Loved the first story - it was as lovable and zany and warm as ever. The other stories...got super weird. Like, "I forced myself to finish them"-weird. But I did finish them, so I guess I get extra credit now. ...

    5 stars for the first story!!! This one was so very perfect and it made me super happy. I love these girls so so much. I know, I always say that. Buuuut, then everything else happens and...ok, so, who the heck is this Shelley Winters person and why should I care about her again? An...

    Yes, it's tangential, but still good fun with beloved characters. As a fan of his other work, I especially enjoyed seeing Allison's rendering of the art. ...

    Yes, the first story was awesome, because the girls were just so... THEM! And I love them! And they'll find each other no matter what OF course. And Ed... haha. And McGraw! HA! But the other stories didn't hold my attention as much. The girls in London was kind of cute, and Shelley...

    A couple years back, a coworker passed me the first volume of a new graphic novel, claiming I'd probably enjoy it. The book was John Allison's Giant Days and it was all about three college freshmen, each who is somewhat of a misfit, who'd become best friends. I read it and was hooked. ...

    with this volume of shorts, i'm realising the incredible artwork by lisa treiman is the real reason i read this series. there's something magical that happens with the combo of allison and treiman. i had a hard time paying attention to the other stories. ...

    This didn't add anything to the series for me, so rating it low. ...

    Giant Days is perhaps my favorite ongoing comic, but this collection of holiday issues (which I already had and disnt love) and a few old strips (which weren't that good) made me feel duped for buying what I thought was new material. For completists only. Go read the ongoing series; it...

    Ok! So this is a collection of shorts from different illustrators & like most collections some of them are amazing and some of them are less so. The first story is great! Its a 'what if' story if Ester, Susan, & Daisy had not become friends in that first week of school. I r...

    I read Giant Days: Extra Credit as single issues. Giant Days: Extra Credit is a collection of all the Giant Days short stories floating around out there. Included are the two largest; the Holiday Specials, as well as half a dozen other, much shorter, stories. Obviously since they?...

    A collection of short stories by three different artists, but still true to the nature of Giant Days. I look forward to another collection of extras in the future. ...

    I have been more than a little lukewarm on Giant Days lately. The first few volumes were truly something special, but ever since then I have basically read them because I felt like I had to. The three main characters are fantastic, but the stories surrounding them lately have not been....

    Sort of an odds and ends edition (Christmas episode, a what-if-we-never-met? episode etc). That was fun if only because I?ve been waiting so long for this edition but ultimately didn?t further any stories or deliver any fun quotes. ...

    Giant Days really can do no wrong. These supplementary stories taken from some Boom! holiday specials and mix-tape issues are just as much fun as the main series, which is already immensely fun. The Christmas special that opens the volume is told in the form of a What If?, in which ...

    Not essential but still mostly fun. Visiting Shelley in London is good; Desmond Fishman is bad (as usual). ...

    A fun bunch of short stories featuring Susan, Esther, and Daisy, and occasionally Ed and McGraw. My favorite was the opening story, about what might have happened if the three girls hadn?t become friends. Also, the introduction of Esther?s London friend Shelley is a great addition ...

    Definitely a fun volume, but it wasn't quite up to snuff with the continued arc of the series. If you enjoy the main series these little side stories are definitely worth reading I think. ...

    I really love this series and I wanted to like this one. However, I was not impressed. Some stories had potential but they lost the ability to end an issue on a happy uplifting note. The alternate reality storyline was far too bleak before it got to the jokes. Funny moments didn't h...

    Although still fun, this collection was not as good as the others. It was a mish mash of stories that didn?t continue the story line in anyway; I?m guessing that?s why it?s called extra credit. ...

    My first ever three star rating for a Giant Days book, but: The one minus star is for the publisher, since I already knew some of the stories from the Christmas extra and felt a bit cheated as a result. ...

    Fun additional stories for fans of the series. Doesn?t go anywhere near as in-depth as the regular trades but still good value ? visiting Shelley in London is the highlight. ...
