BONUS REVIEW Morning Glories Volume Five – Nick Spencer

Morning Glories Volume FiveThis marks the start of Season Two but things pick up EXACTLY where they left off and with the same gigantic mystery.

There is a wonderfully wordless beginning and early on there are a lot of mute pages. Clearly Spencer is now assured of his success and can get comfy. Unfortunately there are a lot of talking head pages later on and no matter how much dialogue takes place very little light is shed on what is going on.

The art is so gorgeous that in some senses this doesn’t matter. You are happy just to hang on and let the story meander through the surreal in its own sweet time.

Some readers might be getting grumpy about the lack of revelation and this is certainly one series that deserves to be read in one sitting and not a book every six months.

Still a Thumbs Up!
