how hard is it to write a morning glories review anyhow?
some crazy shit happens, then more crazy shit happens, then there is a twist ending from way out of left field.

Rinse.
Repeat.

Score: 6

that totally sounds like you read the issue. :roll: :lol:

This is a more detailed review than any either Yoni or Hawk have ever posted.


Hey, I've written a couple real reviews. That's it. You should be banned from review group.

okay, so I left out the moment of normalcy in the middle of all the fucked up shit... like in this one when the kid asks the girl to the picnic... but the rest of my review stands....

Happy birthday, I'll try to get this, but no gaurantees. I'm not sure that my LCS will have any copies in.

Your review is actually pretty accurate.

I just scrounged up a copy of this. Flicked through it quickly and fourthy's review seems dead on. Will give it a proper read soon and get back with a review.

Just give me some warning, how lost will I be since this is my first Morning Glories issue ever?

Morning Glories #8

In preperation for this week I picked up the first morning glories trade, and issue 7. I'm glad I did so because, despite Punchy's recommendation for last week, I don't think this issue would offer much to someone without some background to the premise of the book.

The first arc of the book focused mostly on what appears to be the lead of the series, Casey. Since then each issue focuses on other supporting characters in the series. Last month focused on Zoe, and this time around we see a bit more about Hunter. We see what might have drew the attention of morning glories academy to him, and we also see his efforts to gain a date with Casey. Some mysterious things happen from there.

Reading this series through the last two days has left me somewhat indifferent to it. I think the mystery is intriguing and makes me want to continue to read the series, but I'm not sure I actually like any of the characters at this point. The focus on Hunter helps this a bit, him and Jun are probably the only two characters that I really care for at this point.

The art is something I'm not too fond of on this book. I think it is well done but I don't personally care for the style. I don't hate it, but I don't love it, it's just meh.

Story: 7
Art:5

Overal 7/10
