    How ironic that the issue focusing on my least favorite kid turns out to be the best of this character-centric arc thus far. Well played, Mr. Spencer. Well played. Read Full Review

    Another very, very strong issue, and the sort of thing thats going to have the fans of this book really chatting and throwing out ideas, at least until the next issue. Read Full Review

    If you're coming up short, you're not alone. No matter where Morning Gloriesends up- hopefully not cancelled before all is revealed- it's powerful stuff, a work that proves that there's no reason why comics can't provoke as many water cooler discussions as the best tv has to offer.

    Morning Glories is a series that greatly benefits from being collected, as individual issues feed into one another and inform future twists and events, but each one also serves well as a highlight for the individual characters. In particular, Jade might be the most fascinating student at Morning Glory Academy, and this issue does a remarkable job of giving us personal insight while flirting with the more ethereal elements, and making the emotional exploration the most arresting part. It's never to early to spot true talent, and Morning Glories is a series that has not only bloomed and blossomed, but will deeply root itself in you. Read Full Review

    Time and time again, Spencer astounds us with how far he can take stories, characters, and our emotions to the edge. Not since Walking Dead have my feelings been toyed with on such a grand scale. Normally, Kirkman's ongoing zombie opus was the only comic book that made some sound emit from my mouth, whether it be an "aaaah!", "whaaat?!", or "HOLY F**K!", but now Morning Glories has joined its ranks. Choosing to turn the spotlight from the insane school preying on its students to the actual students themselves was a pretty genius move. Not only do we get a break from the over-the-top situations that plague the halls monthly, but we also feel like we're getting somewhere, story-wise. The problem with these long-drawn mystery stories, such as Lost, is that no matter how firmly the ending could be lodged, we as viewers get tired of feeling cheated time and time again. Although when it comes to Morning Glories, I feel this book has a pretty solid idea of where it's going because every month Read Full Review

    What we do know is in this other reality she sees several interesting characters including what appears to be an older version of herself trying to help her along her troubled journey. Like most of the series so far this one raises more questions than answers, and I've got mixed feelings concerning the emotionally explosive hanging sequence, but it's certainly not boring. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed this issue but the dream/surreal sequences outweigh the everyday occurrences too much for it to be considered great. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jun 12, 2011

    J.J. Abrams has led us by the nose around his world for such a long time without giving answers, that I think fans of this kind of manipulation have just about had enough. While Morning Glories is still a thriller that freaks the reader out a little with each new revelation, this kind of reader manipulation isn't sustainable in the long run. We aren't quite at a year yet, and I hope the series continues, but I'm starting to get the feeling the Abrams effect is starting to wear on those who pick up the book. Morning Glories is still worth reading, but this time around it only earns 3.5 Stars out of 5. Read Full Review

    Another well written and well drawn issue of Morning Glories. I really don't know what is going on, but I am enjoying the experience for the most part. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Jun 12, 2011

    "Morning Glories" continues to be an intriguing concept, with a ballsy approach. Nick Spencer has clearly outed himself as a talented writer, but this book needs to start leading somewhere and adding up to something or readers are likely to wander away. I know I've certainly started drifting. Read Full Review
