    When it comes to non-capes and tights stories, the list of really great stories is relatively short. Fortunately, Morning Glories lands on that list and is worth checking out. Of course, you probably shouldn't jump in with this particular issue, but if you have been reading this series as a casual reader, know that you should continue to keep Morning Glories on your pull list. A story that keeps twisting and turning in on itself earns Morning Glories #9, 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    There's still much to learn about Jun and this chapter serves as a decent jumping on point for what's to come. Hopefully he gets considerable more face time in the near future. Read Full Review

    We're also given another appearance by the mysterious stranger who helped Jin escape the fire after the murder of his parents. As to what his agenda is in helping Jin take down the academy we're still not sure, but I'm willing to stick around to find out. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Those of us on the Spencer train likely won't get off unless we see an entire derail, but more casual fans might be a little wary of stop-and-go pacing this arc has utilized. That's a fair criticism, especially given how short Spencer's track record is, but this is the kind of story that has to be told this way. What I'm more concerned about is the sudden, deus ex machina-like appearance of a man in white... or, off-white I should say. But that's a discussion for another issue. Read Full Review
