    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Sep 9, 2014

    As per usual, Joe Eisma's art is awesome to look at. He brings the school, the characters, the chairs, the hallways, and even the dungeon to life in this book. Morning Glories has never failed to be aesthetically pleasing, and this issue is no exception. Eisma's art is just as visually dynamic as it was when the book started, and perhaps is even better at this point than it was back when Morning Glories #1 was released. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Sep 10, 2014

    Morning Glories #40 represents a long running conundrum. There's a lot of pieces to this puzzle but consistent dialogue and a finely tuned plot keep audience members focused on the here and now. For that it deserves a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Chris Gozali Sep 13, 2014

    The issue lays yet another plot thread on the complex web that Spencer and Eisma have been weaving post-Woodrun. The characterization of Ian is top notch, with refreshing beats of school life and the seething Truant's declaration of vengeance. The unfortunate humdrum of a wordy physics lesson otherwise tones down the intensity of this issue but provides what should be an important clue moving forward in the series. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 1, 2014

    Given the lecture hall set-up the issue is even more verbose than usual in throwing out ideas from ancient philosophy to modern science fiction to explain the nature of the universe as we know it. The real reveal isn't the discussion itself (which I'm sure has clues to larger themes buried in Dr. Simon's ramblings) but the dark nature of Ian who not only tortures the blinded Fortunato but also prepares to use the power of the Cylinder for his own dark purposes. For fans. Read Full Review
