Giant Days #1 is the exciting BOOM! Box debut from John Allison (creator of the popular webcomic Bad Machinery) and artist Lissa Treiman about three girls who become fast friends as they enter University. Susan, Esther, and Daisy are away from home for the first time, and all three want to reinvent themselves. But in the face of hand-wringing boys, “personal experimentation,” influenza, mystery-mold, nu-chauvinism, and the willful, unwanted intrusion of “academia,” they may be lucky just to make it to spring alive.
Adventure Time #36 is the debut of the new creative team of writer Christopher Hastings and artist Zachary Sterling. Finn and Jake jump through a portal and wind up having a spooky adventure on the Moon, not knowing that the evil Janice Bizzlethatcher has designs to fling the Moon into deep space!
Giant Days #1 second print ships with an enhanced cover by series artist Lissa Treiman and carries a retail price of $3.99 with a Diamond Code of FEB158330. Adventure Time #36 second print ships with a new cover by Jay Shaw and carries a retail price of $3.99 with a Diamond Code of FEB158329. Orders close on April 6th, and both are anticipated to be in stores on April 22nd.
