    I don't know if more Extra Credit collections are planned, but I will read them if they are. http://pussreboots.com/blog/2018/comm... ...

    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...

    One-off stand-alone stories that clearly didn't fit into the rhythm of the main story telling. I read this after vol 7. What if the girls hadn't become best friends on the first day of school? What happened during the Christmas that Esther's family had to burn the rug? (This one...

    EW. I didn't like this one at ALL. The first story is cute, it's What Would Happen If The Girls Had Never Met, and it's funny and quirky. But the rest are fairly horrid, plus it appears another artist handled some of this, and they...weren't good. Ugh. ...

    3.5 stars. I can?t give my girls a lower score than that. This series of short stories was a mixed bag, some with the expected hilarity and one or two that were just kind of weird. It was interesting to see all the different artists? depictions of the comic, but it also threw m...

    Meh, not really something I'd go out of my way to read. Giant Days devotees aren't really going to miss much out of this except for a pretty fun "What if?" one-shot. The rest is just kinda bland. Then there's the follow up webcomic strips... I don't know what it is with me and Jo...

    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...

    While I was really happy to see OG Giant Days team of John Allison Lissa Tremaine return for a Christmas What-If? story, the second Christmas special here felt like it was from a different series entirely. The girls felt uncharacteristically judgmental of Shelley's singlehood and the m...

    Giant Days: Extra Credit collects the two 2016 and 2017 Holiday Specials along with the shorts that appeared in Boom Box Mix Tapes 2015 and 2016 and a strip from John Allison?s Scary Go Round site. I picked this up to read the non-Holiday Specials stuff, as I?ve already read those ...

    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. ...

    Good fun as always. Especially fun to see John Allison's drawings of the characters, much as I love the usual Giant Days art. ...

    I only liked the first story. Everything else didn't work for me. I won't be continuing on the with "extra" volumes unless someone tells me I'm truly missing out on something. ...

    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. ...

    Always clamoring for more Giant Days stories. Inter eating new art and character takes. Christmas holiday story was fairly fleshed out. Some of the later issues in this volume are brief and seem to want more than a couple pages to get into it. ...

    Best part was the first one. I didn?t like the art of the last two stories. And the last story was just terrible and I wasn?t here for it. ...

    I really enjoyed the first story (what if the girls didn't become friends?) but the rest was just ok! There was some different art styles in this as well which was interesting but I'm picky about that and didn't love all of them. ...

    I never complain about more Giant Days, though this isn't the strongest collection in the series. Good for completionists who don't read the singles and haven't had a change to read the one-offs yet! ...

    2.5 out of 5 It's actually quite fun to see the same characters portrayed by different artists. For instance, I LOVE Jenn St-Onge?s artwork: I also really enjoyed the what-if story in which Susan, Esther, and Daisy never became friends. However, most of the other stories...

    Probably more like 2.5 stars. Not as fun as the mother series. I liked the lead story, a What If? spoof that looks at what would have happened if Esther, Susan and Daisy hadn't met and become friends on the first day of college. The rest of the book just a hodgepodge collection of o...

    Starts off real good but slowly gets to only okay. World: Sarin is amazing. While the artists in this volume are solid they don't have that special special something that makes the characters in this series pop. It's good it's wonderful but it's not Sarin and I missed that. The wor...

    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...

    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. ...

    3.5 stars. I think I like the series more when the plots have more time to develop - the shorts felt kind of shallow. I still really enjoy the characters though, and the variety of illustrators was interesting, and I found myself taking pictures of some of the frames that felt really r...
