    Joe Eima's work is top notch. He's done hundreds of pages in the Morning Glories series and it is paying off. While I liked his work from the get go, put this issue side by side with issue #1 - #15 and you can see he just keeps getting better. The rest of the team is just as wonderful. Look at that glorious cover by Rodin Esquejo. Jump on board as this series ramps up for Season Two starting on issue #27! Read Full Review

    As with an actual television show, jumping into season two may be a bad idea. New readers would be best off picking up the first few trades before they dive into this story. Trust me though, it's worth it. Read Full Review

    Like a hydra, MORNING GLORIES sprouts two new questions for every answer that Spencer and Eisma deign to reveal. It's frustrating, but in a good way -- they're clearly playing the long game, and when the series comes to a close, finding out how all of the pieces fit together will be a very sweet payoff. In the meantime, it's a compelling puzzle, and Season Two is starting off with just as much intrigue as Season One. Read Full Review

    However, it artfully picks up several loose threads from Season One, and Spencer's tone and themes remain consistent in their exploration of faith, trust, leadership and betrayal. For a mere $1.00, "Morning Glories" #26 is a bargain for long-time monthly readers and may also tempt readers who regularly trade-wait. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Apr 23, 2013

    Morning Glories #26 is a perfect place to jump on if you've been following the trade paperbacks and if you're looking to get in on the monthly craze. Beyond that the issue is just $1, so buying it seems to be an absolutely worthwhile risk whether you're invested or not. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - MrComicBook Apr 23, 2013

    Morning Glories #26 starts off season 2 on a high note. Side note, I'm glad Spencer and Eisma decided to keep the original numbering, and not revert back to #1 for the second season. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson Apr 25, 2013

    This issue of “Morning Glories” isn't so much dollar-priced for the sake of new readers as it is for the sake of getting trade readers to switch to monthly, and that's fine. For the most part, this issue is interesting due to fine-tuned construction, and though both Spencer and Eisma bring some of their common missteps to the book, it's nothing fans of the book aren't already used to. Still, between that and the issue's rather inaccessible nature, don't expect this to win over many newbies or naysayers. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 30, 2013

    The first big reveal is Casey is secretly Ms. Clarskon, one of Casey's old high school teachers before being accepted into Morning Glories. And the second, is the scary resemblance to Ms. Daramount, once Casey embraces life as a brunette, and all of the insane implications that come with it. It's certainly a memorable way to kick off the next arc. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    . . $1! 21pgs+3 bare pgs. minimal ADs@back. Wonderful cover. . . MG returns, luring in new and monthly readers with a $1 opener to "season 2". Unfortunately this vague and odd issue does little to entice or hook new readers. Perhaps regular readers will find more charm in it, but dialog is sparse and most activity is unexplained. Nice work by the artists involved, and a price treat for loyal fans. . . PS: turns out one of the pages was misprinted! that certainly made it more confusing. lol
