    Eisma's facial expressions and the body language of his characters carry the emotional weight of all these interactions, visually defining characters' personalities even more distinctively than Spencer's dialogue. In the melee of bizarre events later in the issue, the visual clarity Eisma contributes is critical. During the climbing of the steps scene, the Eisma's handling of scale and camera angles, aided by Sollazzo's shadowy palette, create an appropriate atmosphere of excitement, mystery and foreboding. Eisma's pacing is also perfectly in tune with Spencer's script, no small feat in for a script that changes direction and location multiple times. At the issue's characteristically mind-blowing last-page, the reader may feel as disoriented and adrenaline-fueled as Hunter, but in a good way. Read Full Review

    A good, solid and pretty standard issue of Morning Glories. Lots of opaque allusions to time-travel and things like that. At this point, you either like the series or you don't and aren't surprised when you don't get all the answers in a single issue. Read Full Review

    Though it has a very loyal following, I still like to consider Morning Glories under appreciated on a larger scale. The work being done on this book has to be tough, especially with all the depth that's been built and it's remarkable to me how it's been able to stay so good with each issue. If you're interested in latching on with a longer story, I highly recommend this title " it's not too late to join in on the fun. Read Full Review

    I loved this series when it started, there was so much going for it. But, like Lost, the mystery has dragged on and at this point it feels made up on the fly and mystery piled on mystery. There's so much that's great and so much I scratch my head and ask wtf. Read Full Review

    I get that this book can be about whatever Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma want, and frankly everything about this book is at least a sci-fi like, but this is a little far fetched. But, let yourself sink into the story, let yourself experience all that is Morning Glories and realize what's going on; good storytelling. Nick Spencer is at his best in this book, and really there is no better book for him, unless Bedlam turns out to be great. Read Full Review

    This issue had some good story, and even better cliffhangers that will make you want to keep reading. I just hope we get to see some answers to this mystery story in the upcoming issues. Pick up this issue! Read Full Review

    We get a tease that we'll learn what Hunter is actually good at in this issue, but other than an ability to get shot we don't really get an idea what his special gift might be. For fans. Read Full Review
