Mutually Assured Destruction.

'Nick Spencer gives each of our six teens a distinct voice, whereas Joe Eisma gives them each a distinct look. I think this is a case where one is not better than the other, they expertly mesh into a fairly flawless book.' -Newsarama Best Shots

'Verdict is that anyone that loved the Runaways needs to check this out. It's a strong story with awesome artwork. This will be a book I will watch very closely!' -Eric Ratcliff, Comic Related

    This is a fantastic comic. Theyre rushing out the paperback of the first story arc, so if you havent gotten into it already, now is the time. Read Full Review

    And even if Im wrong, if this isnt a change in the chemistry of the song but instead someone getting the chords out of order, well, Ill just pretend theres a version of the world out there where that didnt happen. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans Jan 23, 2011

    For a seeming filler issue between major story-arcs, this is pretty good actually. Spencer and Eisma's talents carry an issue and make what could have been disastrous into something pretty enjoyable. Read Full Review

    So let's talk opinions. I'm not sure if this issue is supposed to be a past story or a future story but I found it to be a bit of a waste. I like that it ties into the main story but the mystery of the entire thing made me a little confused. Is this a past, present, or future story? If so, is this our Jade or a different Jade? Is the device the same as the one from issue #5 or is it a future or past version of it. All very convoluted and confusing. (Maybe I'm missing something.) When a book gets overly complicated, (like anything written by Grant Morrison) I start to zone out. Let's hope this issue is cleared up in the future and we get back to the regular cast as soon as possible. The art is still great though. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jan 24, 2011

    This is a very strange issue. The sudden change in storyline and big reveal at the end will certainly confuse the hell out of readers, and considering we don't know what is going on to begin with, this may be the straw that breaks the camel's back for those who were debating on leaving the series. I like that Spencer is constantly shaking things up, but too much baiting without a payoff is going to turn readers off in the long run. Morning Glories is worth checking out if for nothing else than to see how to make the reader scratch their head. I liked the issue enough to go another issue, earning Morning Glories #6 3.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
