Morning Glories: All Will Be Free Review

Nick Spencer does a great job of developing the backstories of the Glories, adding yet more mystery at the same time. I also really enjoyed the addition of the character Abraham, finding the connection he has with the Glories to be very intriguing. On top of this it was also nice to finally get an explanation to the two Jun's we saw at the end of issue two, with this particular development being very dramatic and gripping to read. The only minor thing that bugged me from time to time was the timeline, as certain sequences would be repeated several times, showing that parts of later issues happened earlier than the end of the previous. This however wasn't a huge problem, and actually set-up the specific sequences brilliantly.

Joe Eisma yet again did a terrific job with the artwork on this volume, with the detail being very consistent throughout. Eisma's layouts would also be wonderful, adding a lot more intensity and overall depth to Spencer's story, making the dramatic sequences pop out. The overall style of Eisma's art would also grow on me more throughout this issue, as having found certain facial expressions from the last volume to be a bit awkward, I now find that they add more charm and uniqueness to Eisma's art. I also felt that the colours from Alex Sollazzo added a great finish to Eisma's art, having a terrific overtone.

    The Story: As the mysteries of the Morning Glories Academy slowly unfold, so do the secrets of the students past lives. My Thoughts:Nick Spencer is not your average writer. He's quickly gained attention with this series which happens to be his first monthly on-going. He's written other works but none have received the amount of attention Morning Glories has and for good reason. Nick Spencer's talents as a writer really shine in this second trade. I was sold after reading the first trade but now ...

    Introduction: After reading the first volume of “Morning Glories Volume One: For a Better Future” by Nick Spencer along with artwork by Joe Eisma, I was curious to see how the characters would get out of the nightmarish Morning Glory Academy while keeping their sanities in check. Now, I finally got around to reading the second volume of this series “Morning Glories Volume Two: All Will be Free” and I am proud to say that the stories are starting to progress a bit more with these characters! ...
