And if you haven't read any before, go to vol 1 and start there!

Great introduction to some new characters, a nice twist to the story, and a mild cliffhanger ending to #25 will leave you wanting for more.
Jacob Gerke
After delays and 12 issues of story I feel I don't know what is really going on at times, but it keeps me coming back for more.

Format: Paperback
Let's be clear about something: I absolutely love the first three volumes of Morning Glories. They have fascinating characters, a really cool premise, and - most notably - an intricate plot, filled with unexpected twists and turns. (There's a reason everyone has been comparing this series to TV's 'Lost.')

And there's no doubt that Volume 4 continues in that vein. The premise remains robustly interesting; the characters remain compelling; and the twists remain unpredictable and exciting. Nevertheless, I ended this volume feeling deeply disappointed. Why?

Because, after a certain point, endless unanswered questions become hollow rather than exciting. Volume 4 does not begin to answer ANY of the major questions raised so far: what is the purpose of the school? What do the school teachers want, exactly? What is the source of all of these strange powers? Who is the ghostly creature haunting the halls? What does the phrase 'For a Better Future' mean? Why do all of the students in the class have the same birthday?

Look, I think it's fantastic to crank up the tension for a good long while; that's the stuff of exciting story-telling. After a while, though, you have to resolve some of that tension, or the story feels unsatisfying. To put this in perspective, after Volume 4, Morning Glories runs well over 500 pages. At this point, we've had enough set-up, and we need some pay-off.

But Volume 4 doesn't deliver any.

When I started Morning Glories I was intrigued by the mysteries and the surreal setting. But I knew that if I didn't get answers soon I'd lose interest.

So with book 4 we start getting these answers with ancient conspiracies and supernatural powers.

Yet I'm still losing interest. Everything seems so arbitrary there is no real mystery to reveal, just new twists out of no where.

I may give this another volume but honestly I've had book 5 in my cart for a while and not been tempted to order it.

The continuation of the series is just as good as it's been so far. Great introduction to some new characters, a nice twist to the story, and a mild cliffhanger ending to #25 will leave you wanting for more. Can't wait for the next chapter!

The ongoing story continues to be amazing. It is a satisfying read because as many of the mysteries are deepening, we are also finally getting some answers as to who people are and what is happening at Morning Glory Academy. Every single time I've picked up one of these trades to read for the first time, I've had to go back and read through almost all of the previous volumes, so, if only to save time, I've decided to start reading this comic issue by issue every month. I just don't think I can find time to read all of the volumes over again anymore, as we have now completed Season One of Morning Glories. This will be the first comic I have purchased monthly since my childhood.

The re-introduction of the Truants (who we met briefly in the very first issue of Morning Glories) is interesting because of how seemingly late in the story they have arrived. The strange thing about them is that even though we are already in Volume 4 when they are more fully introduced, it is clear that they play a crucial part in the endgame of the overall mythology. It is as if they have been here all along (because they have).

First things first: No, you won't find "answers" here. It's clear that the real answers are still a long way to go (at least 100 issues, according to Nick Spencer). In fact i'm quite sure that at this point we would just have to admit that the school is just what it is, a weird school protecting some weird things that can never be explained. We are simply here to witness the characters go through their experience and hopefully got some sort of closure.

That said, it's still a thrilling ride. We got clearer backgrounds on most of the characters (even though they introduced EVEN MORE mysterious ones), just enough so that we'd care more about them. By this point in story you should be informed enough whether you want to go on reading or just stop altogether. Me? I'm in.

I'll keep my review pretty short and simple, if you're reading Morning Glories already, pick this up! It's the same greatness you expect from this series. Where you get a few answers to some aspects to whet your appetite but those answers only lead to more questions. And if you haven't read any before, go to vol 1 and start there! You won't regret it. (Especially if you're a fan of shows like Lost, this will be right up your alley. I've personally only seen a handful of Lost episodes but my two friends I have given this to read who were both big Lost fans absolutely loved it!)

Morning Glories is a lot like the TV show Lost. It centers around three kids that are trapped at a Prep. School, which for all purposes could be an island. There's an evil or mad organization with their own creepy agenda. Some other group trying to infiltrate it and some supernatural thing too.

Books one to three really kept me hooked, will they escape and what is really going on?

Book four was good, Lot more back story of the people running the school.

The stage has been well set with this book. I just hope they warp it up soon.
