    Multiversity Comics - Sam LeBas May 31, 2013

    The creative team has somehow found a way to mimic the experience of reading the book in the characters reaction to the events of the series. Throughout "Morning Glories" 27 the cast echoes the confusion, and need for speculation that the audience feels each time they pick up an issue. In another feat of imagination, the team has managed to harness the sensation of deja vu, communicating that eerie, dreamlike experience perfectly in the series, especially this issue. Spencer and Eisma have somehow caught lightning in a bottle, and each installment of the series releases another jolt of energy that feels familiar and completely new all at once. Read Full Review

    MORNING GLORIES followers will get double the fun in this month's oversized issue -- not only are there extra pages, but certain pieces of the story are finally starting to click together. There's still plenty left to figure out, but it's very gratifying to see this large, complicated world start to feel a little bit smaller. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 5, 2013

    For a Morning Glories comic issue #27 is pretty straightforward. We also get to interesting features at the back of the comic including summary and supposition from “Professor Meylikhov” and a cute recap of the first season. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 29, 2013

    Is it a book about time traveling or just the supernatural or likely both. I’ve missed a lot and if this issue accomplished one thing, it was to convince me to go back and get caught up. I’m glad to see that Spencer has a long term goal for the series, but with this issue marking the “second season” I’m curious as to just how big this story is going to get. If I get caught up in time for the next issue I may check it out, otherwise I might end up a trader waiter until that day comes. If you’ve never tried Morning Glories before, then I guess this as good of a place to begin as any to start. If you don’t want to track down trades or back issues then a least hit up a wiki as it’s sure to answer a few of your questions. Read Full Review

    Joe Eisma normally turns in one stellar issue after another, so I was surprised to see what is probably his most inconsistent effort to date. Maybe he wasn't able to put as much time into this issue because it was double the regular size? Faces are what take the biggest hit, with some people looking bug-eyed and others having deformed mouths and noses. That said, there are some redeeming moments such as the opening pages in the forest with a pretty funny moment, as well as the final image that harkens back to a moment we saw long, long ago.
