This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the crew of three take a look at I Kill Giants from Image Comics.

It’s a story about a girl who’s a bit of an outsider – she’s smart-assed and funny, but totally in our geekland: she’s obsessed with Dungeons & Dragons, she doesn’t have a lot of friends, she’s a bit of a social misfit. She’s taken her fantasy life a little far, and really only talks about giants to people. She’s convinced that giants are real and giants are coming, and it’s her responsibility to stop them when they show up. This weird little fantasy life that she’s going has started seeping into her real life, and as we see things from her point of view, we see that she sees pixies and she sees signs in the clouds and other things that might be telling her that bad things might be coming.

    I Kill Giants is one of my favorite graphic novels of all time. I even upgraded to the Hardcover version. If you’ve ever experienced the loss of a parent, this book will conjure up a lot of raw emotion. The afterwords from writer Joe Kelly candidly talks about the genesis of the book; he began writing it before his father was taken ill and didn’t finish the story until after he had passed away. It was a cathartic and rewarding experience for the grieving writer, and as someone who’s lost both parents, this proved to be an occasionally difficult but equally beautiful story.

    I whole-heartedly recommend this to any comics afficianado who’s not afraid to face against one of the most gigantic adervsaries any of us will ever encounter; Death.

    This book is one of those that left my jaw on the floor and my brain all over the walls. At first, I had a hard time getting past the crazy-loose artwork to figure out what was going on on, but once I hit that ending and saw the art for what it was (spoiler: seeing the world through the girl’s eyes) it made me go back and read it all over again. I’ve got the paperback, and can’t wait to upgrade to the hardcover. I gave it to my dad, the first comic he’d read in 35 years, and he almost cried. One of my all time favorites, and holds a special place on my bookshelf.
