Zom’s choice now.  He’s brought along Morning Glories, written by Nick Spencer and drawn by Joe Eisma.


I bet you wish that you were trapped in a smoky room of grown men taking about this comic.  Well this is the next best thing!

Morning Glories #1-4 reviewed

January 6th, 2011

Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma

Late to this party but so, probably, are a lot of you.

Like the fella on the Internet says, Morning Glories is very much of the Lost school of storytelling where mystery is all. Four issues down and everything is still pretty much up for grabs at Morning Glory Academy: who are these kids? Why do they all have the same birthday? Why on Earth are the faculty terrorising them? How the heck are they going to get out? Cultists!?! Who’s gonna do it with who? Morning Glories is one big question mark that keeps getting bigger and that’s it’s primary appeal. Not to say that Nick Spencer – a writer who seemed to come out of nowhere last year but has since thoroughly stormed DC ramparts with his work on Jimmy Olsen, T.H.U.N.D.E.R Agents and Supergirl – doesn’t make the comic work in other ways, the characterisation is whedonesque in it’s clarity, the plot is multi-laced but easy to follow, and the book is surprisingly fast paced, action packed, compelling and dramatic for a title where interpersonal dynamics (i.e. talking heads) are front and centre.

Schoolgirls and cock disgust after the jump!
