Giant Days may have come to an end last week, but explosive publisher BOOM! Studios isn’t done squeezing as much cash milk out of that cash cow as they can. Thus, July 2020 will see the release of The Quotable Giant Days, a new collection of “witty and humorous” quotes from writer John Allison which will also feature new art by Max Sarin.
It looks like a three-volume collection, and hey, look, Bleeding Cool is quoted on the cover of volume two! Multiversity and Uproxx score the other two cover quotes — the three pillars of comic book journalism!
UPDATE: On Twitter, John Allison points out:
It’s not three volumes.

Turns out we mistook the included graphics of three collected volumes of Giant Days itself included in the press release for the covers of The Quotable Giant Days. Looks like there will be just one volume, with the cover as-yet-unrevealed.
Check out the press release below for more info.
