I won't be reviewing for the rest of March or the first week in April. Work and work-related travel are getting in the way of my Outhousing.

Morning Glories is good but, there is something that isn't quite right. Y the Last Man did something incredible where every issue ended with a cliff hanger, hell in it's own way the series ended on a cliffhanger. But it's a series that read both great in monthly and trade format. Having read volume one of Morning Glories in trade and then reading 7 & 8 in singles I can say it's not the same at all. The cliff hangers build in the trades but these stand alone stories serve to move the story forward and develop the characters at the same time. Unfortunately this issue didn't expand on the two most interesting characters, the blond and the asshole kid who maybe the best character in the entire book. The art is serviceable and works for the series.

Haha they nail us pretty good for a first impression:

Some interesting perspectives from "elsewhere".

Warning: contains spoilers for this issue and for the fact that there are odd people on the internet. WITH HORRID SIGS !
Some of them look for something rather unpleasant in Hellblazer.


I have started at the first "review" I could find, there may be more in there but the thread seems to be internal forum bantering

They also have an antidote to James' Milligaphobic rant.

Just getting as chance to re-read this now, it got shuffled in a bunch of stuff from SPACE and a box of 90% mainstream crapola I got dumped in my lap. Probably won't review until tomorrow though.

Morning Glories #8

I had never even heard of this book when it was chosen by Punchy so I figured just like Scott Pilgrim, I was really going to dislike this. I stand corrected. I'm intrigued even though I don't have a clue what any of this is really about. When it comes out in trade, I will be the first in line to pick it up.

That said, it was alright.

I've really been enjoying the series thus far. It's a great book, even if it gets a little absurd at times with the death count. This issue proves to be no exception for the Nick Spencer "Morning Glories" formula. There's a bit of normalcy smashed to bits by extreme violence with a level of intrigue fueled by the revealed backstory of one of the main characters. Luckily, Spencer knows how to exploit this formula to prevent the series from growing stale.

The art's alright but nothing spectacular.
