    That rejection is hurting Hunter more than anything else he's experienced in the series and causes him to lash out in a way that's completely at odds with who he is as a character. In the new documentary Miss Representation, about the effects media has on the choices girls make for their adulthood, a large section is devoted to the fact that sexist rhetoric and imagery doesn't just hurt women, it hurts men as well, who are often caused to be emotionally stunted because of the emphasis society places on men not showing emotion. After running away from Casey in the wake of her rejection of him, Hunter lashes out at the first vulnerable target that presents itself because he doesn't know how else to respond. That target is Zoe, who gets treated to an ugly bout of misogynist slut-shaming from Hunter: Read Full Review

    Once again, we are greeted with a cliffhanger mystery. We are still not given any revelations and none of the hanging plot twists get addressed or resolved. Even with all of that, I loved this issue. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Oct 16, 2011

    This series is really finding it's footing after a small rough patch and the story is humming along nicely. If you drifted away, it's time to come back because this is a very well written and drawn series. Read Full Review

    One curious blip in the art is a number "2" stamped just above Jade's head during the cave scene. I reached out to Spencer and he said it was just a weird printing error, so instead of chastising the editor and publisher of the title, I am instead heavily grateful that it was just a mistake. After obsessing over the Lost numbers for six years, I am glad there is not going to be a new round of numerical madness in Morning Glories. Read Full Review

    The issue delivers another solid tale by further the story but still keeping most of its secrets unrevealed. Worth a look. Read Full Review
