Morning Glories #6

With this issue Morning Glories takes a sideways step and gives us a look behind the curtain.

It takes advantage of the freedom the comic book format allows, and takes us to a different time.

It's difficult to discuss the issue without giving too much away (and some of it I'm not sure I understand anyway), but we get a glimpse of the secret behind the big, mysterious and powerful conical object the students discovered recently.

We also meet different characters in very different situations.

This would be a terrible first issue - I suspect a new reader would be lost - but the next issue is supposed to be a great jumping-on point, if you're arriving late to the show.

As always, the scripting by Nick Spencer is clever and carefully managed, and the art by Joe Eisma is quite good, with some endearing quirks.

So far, this book continues to evoke the feel of the Lost TV show without directly copying its story and style.

Morning Glories is intriguing, very smart and well worth checking out.

Grade: B+
