The Good

Morning Glories Vol. 3: P.E. by Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma was a wild but confusing ride for me. On one hand I love all the secrets and lies, and on the other, I still have no clue what the heck is going on. That might pose more of a problem as the volumes go on…

The stories behind what brought each of our six main characters to Morning Glory Academy have been fleshed out and better explained, while also somehow becoming even more complex and mysterious. But, weirdly, I’ve had no problem with the jumps back and forth in time, and I even like the way there’s no division, no break whatsoever, between the timelines as we read them. Some actually alternate from one frame to the next – here’s Casey now, here’s Casey then, here’s Casey now, etc., right down one page – and it works.

With every exchange between the students – good (?) girl Casey, lovable geek Hunter, tormented Jade, psychopath Ike, silent-but-maybe-deadly Jun, and homicidal mega-bitch Zoe – we get to know them so much better, and Spencer does this without using dull exposition dumps. Each character really does have a distinct voice, and none of them are one-dimensional. Indeed, I’m not even sure all of them – hell, ANY of them – are what we’ve been led to believe up to now… I wonder if even the characters know for certain what their true natures are, or what they’re capable of…

And oh, my goodness: an actual, honest, loving gay relationship subplot? I’m thrilled to see it done in a totally non-shocking, non-exploitative way, and it’s a love story I’d want to read more about, regardless of the sexes involved. I definitely did not see that coming!

The Bad

I just don’t understand what is going on. I have never been so confused about a story in my entire life. With so many characters and so many sub-plots to pay attention to, the actually story must be getting lost in the background. If you know what is going on here, please enlighten me… because this is getting ridiculous.

The Good

Morning Glories Vol. 4: Truants by Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma is starting to lose me. The confusion and utter lack of answers is beginning to annoy me. But let’s discuss the good stuff first.

The cover is pretty? Yeah that’s all I got.

The Bad

I just don’t get it. This was supposed to be the ending of the first season’s story arc. But it just felt like even more unanswered questions. Don’t even get me started on the introduction of 6 new students to mess you up. I spent most of this issue trying to figure out who is who, because to be honest the artwork of the characters are all starting to look alike. Especially Irina and Akiko.

I’m beginning to think Spencer has no idea what is going on either. This is starting to get dragged out for far too long just to print more issues. How about we start answering questions before new plots and ideas start making it to the page?

This volume just frustrated me beyond belief. Here’s hoping the next volume doesn’t continue on the decline it’s currently going on.


As you can see, my opinion drastically changes between volumes 3 and 4. This series is beginning to lose it’s spark with me, but I will give it two more volumes to change my mind before letting it go. Let me know what you guys thought of Morning Glories Volumes 3 & 4 by Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma! I would love to hear your opinions as well!

Until next time,
