Whatever Happened to the Long-running Indie Comic Book Series?
There are four series — three, in the grand scheme of things, recent series — that may not have been greenlit today, that represent, to me, the importance of long-running indie comics. Morning Glories #50 cover Credit: Image Comics. Morning Glories Long before he became a Marvel mainstay known for The Amazing Spider-Man and a controversial run on Captain America, Nick[...]
Will The Falcon Be Deported In Captain America: Sam Wilson #17?
If there's one thing readers can count on from superstar writer Nick Spencer (because it sure isn't plot development in Morning Glories), it's subtle political commentary So it's no surprise that an upcoming issue of Captain America: Sam Wilson #17 will focus on conservative news media trying to get the All-New Falcon deported for being[...]
43 Thoughts About 43 Comics – The Walking Dead, Fantastic Four, Justice League, Action Comics, Alex + Ada, Nailbiter, Rat Queens, Peter Panzerfaust, Morning Glories, Batman Eternal, Miracleman, Men Of Wrath, Cerebus, Adventure Time, Captain America, Wonder Woman, Death Of Wolverine, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Guardians 3000, Uncanny Avengers, Lobo, Damnation, Edge Of Spider-Verse, Winter Soldier, Batman/Superman, Gotham Academy, Chaos, Angry Birds, Fiction Squad, Regular Show, X-Files, Kill Shakespeare, Holmes/Houdini, Rogue Trooper, TMNT, Cutter, Witchblade, Vampirella, Suicide Risk, Mercy Thompson, Cloaks, Woods And War Cry
Everyone agrees on that.   And Morning Glories goes for it Yes, that's pretty much as far as you can go Until you hire Garth Ennis or Si Spurrier as swearing consultants. While this scene from Lobo will appeal to those whose sexual innuendo is based in Britain in the mid seventies Which I basically picked up on[...]
Who Wants To Be In Morning Glories? Even If It Costs You Your Life?
Morning Glories artist Joe Eisma makes the offer…. Morning Glories fans—you, yes YOU, can be a part of the book.  After 40+ issues, it's getting to be an issue coming up with looks for the various students, guards, and other background characters throughout the book.  This is where you come in. As I have mentioned on my various[...]
A Requiem for Hero Comics In Phoenix, Arizona
But there was one comic that I absolutely could not quit, no matter how hard I tried: Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma's Morning Glories. I love the intrigue, the dynamic, and the sheer sense of dread imposed within the pages of Morning Glories, and while I didn't have a comic shop to claim I still had a comic that I needed to[...]
47 Thoughts About 47 Comics – Moon Knight, Uber, Nailbiter, Extinction Parade, The Shadow, Black Kiss, Satellite Sam,The Woods, Doctor Spektor, Deadpool Vs X-Force, Caliban, Rocket Raccoon, Starlord, Fantastic Four 100th, Futures End, Batman Eternal, Action Comics, Green Lantern, Justice League 3000, Batman/Superman, Batwing, Thief Of Thieves, Won Ton Soup, Witchblade, Angel & Faith, Miracleman, Archer Coe, The Victories, Elephantmen, Twilight Zone, White Suits, Suicide Risk, The Woods, Splinter Cell, Southern Bastards, Star Mage, Garfield, Dexter's Lab, Big Trouble In Little China, Black Bat, Morning Glories, Robocop, Six Million Dollar Man, Vampirella, Indestructible And Lazarus
I know… Morning Glories, can you help?   There we go Everything is better with cake. And Robocop 2014 remembers his catchphrase just in time for the new series. Six Million Dollar Man crosses the panel divide It's a neat little trick when done well And this does it well. Vampirella is subject to a rather nasty love bite there[...]

Forty-Five Thoughts About Forty-Five Comics – Justice League, New Warriors, Harley Quinn, Quantum & Woody, Amazing X-Men, Batwoman, Animal Man, Terminator, BPRD, Conan, God Is Dead, Extinction Parade, GI Joe, Daredevil, Captain America, Uncanny X-Men, Avengers World, Unity, Bloodshot And The Hard Corps, Curse, Dawn Of The Jedi, White Suits, Strain, Vader, DHP, Skyman, Bad Ass, Kings Watch, Voice In The Dark, Midas Flesh, Adventure Time, Robocop, Loki, Joyners 3D, Morning Glories, Alex + Ada, Peter Panzerfaust, Undertow, Savage Dragon, Khan, Jericho, Godzilla, Real American Hero, Ben 10 and TMNT Conspiracy
You know, I don;t think any such aggression could reduce Loki's appeal somehow… The Joyners 3D does a good expression of the facial expression I pull when trying to read 3D images with the stigmatism I have in my eyes. Morning Glories turns into, well, Burn The Orphanage, it seems Shoryuken! Alex + Ada gives us a guide[...]
Forty-Six Thoughts About Forty-Five Comics – Kick Ass 3, Black Science 1, Aphrodite IX, Damsels, Jonah Hex, Justice League Dark, Dark Shadows, Five Ghosts, Infinity Heist, Infinity Hunt, Nova, Conan, Itty Bitty Hellboy, Half Past Danger, Goon,  Infinity, Avengers Assemble, Powers, Doctor Who, THUNDER Agents, Ghostbusters, GI Joe, TMNT, Judge Dredd, Maxx, Peabody & Sherman, X-Files, Zombie Tales, Captain Midnight, Dark Knight, Criminal Macabre, Wolverine And The X-Men. Forever Evil: ARGUS, Teen Titans, Superman, Revival, Danger Girl, Morning Glories, Tom Strong, Walking Dead, Thief Of Thieves, Star Trek, Hawkeye, Flash, Aquaman
Morning Glories goes through the practicality of that. Yes, yes it did, Danger Girl #3. In Revival, it looks like the John Constantine is catching on Dye your hair fellow, or you'll look like Keanu Reeves And not in a good way Is there a good way? Another World Without Superman, in today's Superman… and it's not the[...]
Thirty-Three Thoughts About Thirty-Two Comics – Painkiller Jane, Captain America, Batman/Superman, Batwing, Green Arrow, Mighty Avengers, The Movement, Superman Unchained, Red Sonja Legends, Detective Comics, Action Comics, Iron Man, Longshot, The Star Wars, Victories, East Of West, Amazing X-Men, Ten Grand, Spawn, Grindhouse, Occultist, Fatale, Uber, Absolution, Drumhellar, Alex + Ada, Baltimore: Infernal, Cobra Files, Dark Cybertron, Morning Glories And Classic Dredd
If you don't know what that is, go and google with the Safe Filter off… Morning Glories brings us the fire in this beautiful green/orange contrast, that stems from the colour of the hair But what kind of message is she sending? Or, courtesy of Dredd Classics #5, could it be a response? Share your thoughts about[...]
Thirty-Four Thoughts About Thirty-Three Comics – Avengers, New Avengers, Adventure Time, BPRD, Nowhere Men, Sheltered, Morning Glories, Zero, Grimm, GI Joe, Transformers, Imagine Agents, Buzz Kill, The Strain, Brain Boy, Bloodhound, Star Trek: Khan, Dark Nights, Hellraiser, X-Files, Hunger, Batwoman, X-Men Legacy, Wonder Woman, Transformers, X-O Manowar, Batman/Superman, Batman And Two Face, Hawkeye, Avengers Assemble, Shoot First, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Bloodshot And Baltimore
But "bitch looks like it may be word of the week" In Morning Glories, it looks like Nick Spencer's characters are learning from those Marvel NYCC teasers by pre-announcing what they are going to do Let me guess… "We Need To Talk", that means a new Black Bolt series by Spencer and Eisma? Yes, all the children[...]
Twenty-One Thoughts About Twenty-One Comics – Uncanny X-Men, Superior Spider-Man, Darkness, Cyberforce, Aphrodite IX, Kiss Me Satan, Buzzkill, Harbinger, Bounce, BPRD, X-Men Legacy, Conan, X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Morbius, Savage Wolverine, Savage Dragon, Zero, Peter Panzerfaust, Morning Glories And Dream Thief
Peter Panzerfaust can cope with many things but please don;t let it join the cannibal ranks… What they need in Morning Glories is a Dream Thief Say, can you delve into my dreams and find what my favourite band was when I was nine? Oh dear Don't worry, I discovered The Jam shortly afterwards. Comics courtesy of Orbital[...]

Something, light, upbeat, feel good and… Okay, maybe Morning Glories wasn't the best way to start Well then, something else… Aah! Uncanny Avengers, do you really have to? I can't take any more… Wolverine And The X-Men, you too? Can people please stop ripping off their faces, give me something else to watch, please! I deserved that[...]
Eighteen Thoughts About Eighteen Comics – Tom Strong, Batman Inc, Animal Man Annual, Batman Annual, Uber, Collider, Detective Comics Annual, Morning Glories, Bedlan, Sex, X-Men, Superman Annual, Captain Marvel, What If AVX, Absolution, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Flash Annual
Too much, comics is stuck on the ink line, digital colouring is helping to remove that necessity. Morning Glories#26 is still all shooty and cursey, underneath those multiple covers… As is the crazy Gothamesque world of Bedlam from the same writer and publisher I need something to refresh the palate.   "Kicked Your Ass"? Like "Kick Ass"? Like "Hit[...]
Sixteen Thoughts About Sixteen Comics – Prophet, Wolverine & The X-Men, Uncanny, X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, Fatale, Young Avengers, Catwoman, Morning Glories, Mars Attacks: Classics Obliterated, Godzilla, X-O Manowar, Justice League, Age Of Ultron AI, Superman And Larfleeze
Because how can that be sexist, eh? It's Morning Glories Something bad is always about to happen. Mars Attacks Moby Dick Looks like it's sushi for Martian lunch today. Great pull-back-and-reveal in Godzilla Rulers of the Earth #1… but what happened to little lizard? Or "Gozuki" as I know have to call him? It's not much of a choice,[...]
The Power And The Morning Glory – Talking To Joe Eisma
Joseph Kyle Schmidt talked to Joe Eisma. No stranger to scrutiny, Joe Eisma can withstand the pressures of penciling a book like Morning Glories Even then, a guy's liable can get nervous from time to time. "Every issue has some kind of, at least one major shocking scene," Joe says.  "I wonder how people are going to[...]
Talking To Nick Spencer About Bedlam, The Aurora Shootings And SHIELD
I was bursting with questions and theories after reading Morning Glories #26 and took to the internet I found a link to the tinychat on Spencer's twitter and before I knew it, I was in a chatroom with like minded fans and Spencer himself For the most part, the writer stays silent in the tinychat,[...]
Orbiting Around Morning Glories
[audio:] Orbital Comics of London presents: Welcome to Episode 110 of The Orbiting Pod! This week, we go back to school with Morning Glories #26, say cowabunga with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #21, travel far with A Distant Soil #39, act the goat with Rachel Rising #16, hang high with Arrow #6, and ask questions with The[...]
Morning Glories #26 To Be Replaced Over Wrong Page
Morning Glories #26 was printed with a odd page Not the kind of thing you wouldn't expect to see in the title, which does kinda go all over the place But in this case, It wasn't intentional, so retailers have been asked to destroy copies, to be replaced by the corrected version. If you did buy[...]
Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen Comics – Manhattan Projects, Morning Glories, Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth, The End Times Of Bram And Ben, Wolverine & The X-Men, Cable & X-Force, Batgirl, Katana, Powers, Avengers Assemble, Fury, Buffy, Avengers Arena, Ghostbusters
I'm so glad we got Manhattan Projects. Morning Glories does the hideous trick of applying a child's logic to the Bible Which is just the kind of thing it was never meant to stand up to Hardly cricket. Lots of child's logic in Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth as well as some entertaining reworkings of the[...]
Fourteen Thoughts About Fourteen Comics – Locke & Key, FF, Minutemen, Crossed, Gambit, Ferals, Mudman, Phantom Lady And Doll Man, Wolverine & The X-Men, The New Deadwardians, Ultimate X-Men, AVX Versus, JIM, Morning Glories
Oh, you think you were cried out before, It seems that there are far more tears to come. Morning Glories #21 goes through the motions of those early days at the school, and the repetitive discoveries of certain pupils, and plays with it, taking scenes we'd seen with some cast members, and sees how they play[...]
Eleven Other Thoughts About Eleven Comics Today – Mudman, Avengers Vs X-Men, Prophecy, Action Comics, The Boys, Fanboys Vs Zombies, Snarked, Thief Of Thieves, Secret, Harbinger And Morning Glories
The art however is lush and pretty enough to carry you through.     Morning Glories #19 runs through time and space, chasing a man who has spent his life racing to catch up Isn't it fitting that his saviours are just in time? As the world starts to change, Wee Hughie in The Boys finds himself in a[...]

Wednesday Comics Review: Morning Glories 8 and Generation Hope 5
Morning Glories' Joe Eisma's work has been compared to Jamie McKelvie There certainly are similarities, the clean thin lines, the open space for colour, the expressionistic faces and the elegant panel design. And today we get both Morning Glories #8 from Image and Generation Hope #5 from Marvel, the latter reteaming the holy Phonogram pairing of[...]
