I want to make one brief note before I begin. I intend to do themed reviews for certain periods of time. For example, this week I will only cover comics composed of computer-generated imagery (CGI). More significant and involved are my plans for Halloween 🙂 If anyone has ideas for specific themed reviews, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below. The possibilities are endless! At the moment, draft ideas are themes such as “I Want a Giantess for Christmas,” covering macrophilia tales set around that holiday like DreamTales “The Gift of the Magi,” (which I already reviewed, I would find new stories to cover) or “Don’t Give Me the Cold Shoulder!” looking at tales set in frozen environments such as Giantess Club’s “20,000 Years Ago,” etc. Please contact me if you have suggestions.
Now, onto the review!
The story in Nyom’s “Outgrowing it all!” is a simple one. A woman, named Jessica, begins to grow for unknown reasons. Her boyfriend, Albert, soon leaves her, both in the sense of physically departing from her location and in the sense of ending their romantic relationship. An unnamed man watches from a nearby boat, but she becomes too large to interact with him at the beginning of Part 2. Throughout this series she continues to expand. (Of course, suspension of disbelief is required, especially when she becomes larger than the moon! Thankfully, her immense size does not seem to cause damage to the Earth. At least, we’re not made aware of any destruction which might be expected when a person becomes large enough to exert a significant gravitational pull.)
The first part, 44 color pages including cover and extras, was released in November 2016, and the second, 54 pages including cover and extras, was published in February 2017.
The story’s setting, among the Maluku Islands of Indonesia, was an interesting choice and I felt that the nearby island was nicely detailed.
Unfortunately, there are a fair amount of typos throughout. These included duplicated words, unnecessary additions, misspellings, etc. A few examples are given below:
In general, I enjoy growing giantesses. However, it is unfortunate that Jessica never outgrows her clothes. She was already naked the first time we saw her. She was super-humanly tall in the very first panel in which she appeared. Additionally, she was swimming near a boat so we never saw her outgrow a building.
Given Jessica’s immense body, sex consists solely of masturbation, but it was nicely portrayed. (Given the inherent sexual limitations which arise when there’s only one giant person, I would have preferred if another man or woman had also grown.)
It’s clear that Nyom is not personally a fan of mega giantesses, as can be read in his notes at the beginning of Outgrowing It All! Part 2:
I appreciated Nyom’s candor. As a customer it’s helpful to know what type of art a creator does and does not like. I also agree that making a giant woman at this scale eliminates the possibilities for interaction and thus can be boring.
However, if Nyom thought the script was too bland, then why did he make the comic? Did he feel pressured by his supporters on Patreon?
Overall, this comic was fun, even though it lost steam at the end. On Nyom’s DeviantArt page people asked if it would made available for purchase outside of Patreon. I’ll add my voice to that request, I’d love it if Nyom opened a store on a site like E-junkie, Gumroad, etc.
Until then, you can find Nyom’s works via his Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/nyom
