Morning Glories #8

Apart from the sweet speculator profits, I didn't care much for the first issue of Morning Glories. It's a good thing the first trade was cheap, otherwise I might not have given the series a second chance. The first arc of the series turned out to be a lot of fun and this issue is probably my favorite of the series so far.

The initial setup wasn't anything extraordinary but the stuff with time and clocks was a cool mystery to add on top of everything else already going on. As far as every issue ending on a cliffhanger goes, it works for Walking Dead, no reason it can't work for Morning Glories as well and the double cliffhanger in this was one of the better cliffhangers up to this point.

While I'm still not a fan of the aesthetic of the art in this series, I do think Eisma is growing a lot as a storyteller. The whole exchange in the library was really well done, especially the subtle glances.

I'm not going to do anything crazy like start to read this in single issues, but this issue did increase my excitement for the second trade quite a bit.

Story: 9
Art: 7
Overall: 8
