    Morning Glories is a damn fine display of the art of story telling. It has all the right things going for it--interesting characters, a mysterious premise, and (most importantly) a creative team that is firing on all cylinders. This comic is easily the best new book on the stands and I urge everyone to give this title a chance. Read Full Review

    So let's talk opinions. Like I said last review, I like this book a lot. There is some strange stuff going on and I can't wait until we get some revelations as to the true agenda of this school. Its nice to see Casey's character get developed into a character with some strength instead of a whiner. Of course one of the kids had to be a mole but I was hoping they would wait a bit longer to reveal him/her. The art was very nice but I did have a small issue. I have this issue with any comic that draws wet characters. Their clothes always seem dry. But that's just me. Still, even with that tiny flub, this book has a great story and very nice art. Can't wait for next issue and for more “education”. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it. Read Full Review

    Morning Glories is an odd series because I'm not exactly sure what the series will ultimately end up becoming. Will the kids rebel against their masters and become hunted rogues? Will they submit to their masters and become some sort of agents? Will they get killed off and then a new class gets enrolled? I like the mystery this series holds and I find the story telling to be fresh and interesting. I definitely recommend this series for someone looking for something a little out of the ordinary.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Sep 17, 2010

    I'm clearly enamored with this issue of Morning Glories. Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma have put together a shockingly awesome comic that is clearly the "next big thing" for Image, a company that has spent the last several years churning out "next big things." Between the haunting mysteries of the Morning Glory Academy, to the undeniably engaging characters, to the shockingly awesome final page, this comic is stellar in every single way. Get in on the ground floor by picking this comic up right now. You won't regret it! Read Full Review

    The content of the issue certainly justifies the price, and I have no doubt that Morning Glories will continue dazzling readers for many months to come. Read Full Review

    Eventually, any mystery series has to confront the need to create a balance between retaining the intrigue and providing payoff for the audience. A lot of artists fail when it comes to this, but Im optimistic about Morning Glories; the beginning has been so strong, it would be a shame to spoil the tremendous potential. Time will tell how successful Spencer is, but for the time being hes produced two fantastic issues. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Scott Hunter Sep 14, 2010

    The cover is also very enjoyable, and Esquejo exhibits a style that, to my mind, seems to blend photo-realism and a more illustrative style of drawing very well. It features three of our cast, namely Casey, Hunter and Zoe, struggling for breath in the detention room as the water rises. The faces of the students look very realistic, meanwhile some objects (a floating chair in the foreground, and the character's clothes underwater, for example) very much look like they are drawn. It is an image that is sure to catch the eye "" three young people on the verge of drowning "" especially as Casey has her arms raised as if she is about to beat on the cover for help (intentional or not, it is a nice touch). It is also, as in the interior, full of plenty of colour (at least in the above-water part), and I also like how the title and credits are located at the bottom of the page, looking as if they are sinking. My only complaint with the cover is that neither Casey nor Hunter are wearing the clo Read Full Review

    I had my concerns that Nick Spencer may have showed his cards too early with last month's gruesome cliffhanger, but it's obvious that his plans for the series go far beyond any preconceived notions I previously had. Morning Glories has earned a permanent spot on my pull list. Read Full Review

    If he succeeds, hell have done those new readers a great favor. Morning Glories is one of those rare series whose story is supplemented by bizarre mysteries rather than propped up by them as a crutch. In the same mold as the television series Lost, this book carries with it all the intangible qualities to separate it from less substantive pretenders. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 15, 2010

    I didn't know what to expect with this book. I've seen previews, I've read reviews, I've checked out the internet buzz that preceded the release of this title, but I withheld judgment. When I opened the book, the first scene quickly grabbed me by the back of the head and pulled me in. This book is off the beaten path, a little bit horror, a little action adventure, a little teen drama, a whole lot of riveting story. I knew nothing of these characters coming in, but I'm hooked, like the titular flower around a garden trellis. Read Full Review
