morning-glories-37-akiko

The latest issue of Morning Glories centers around yet another of the Truants as it follows the roaming astral body of the comatose Akiko who, while talking to her comatose body, roams various moments of her past, current unfolding events around the school (and possible future?) including meeting Danielle Clarkson, her days growing up and learning in Abraham’s Camp, a ballet recital for the older Jade, and making it down to the basement to comfort the blinded Fortunato.

The latest issue of Morning Glories turns its attention to Ian, a student of Abraham’s Camp and a member of Irina‘s failed takeover attempt of Morning Glories Academy. Along with showing us Ian’s current activities, Morning Glories #36 gives us a look back at the man who made him and Dainelle Clarkson’s discovery of him years before during Casey‘s time traveling adventures.

Offering another issue centered around a single student, the latest issue of Morning Glories turns its attention to Fortunato Medeiros who faces danger from the Academy both in the past and present. Luckily for Fortunato, as a child he was lucky enough to have a guardian angel in the time-traveling Casey Blevins. In the present, however, poor Fortunato has to face the wrath of Georgiana Daramount all on his own.

The latest issue of Morning Glories is all about dealing with loss both in the present and the past. The focus of the issue is split between Jade dealing with the loss of her mother in a traffic accident and in the present Jade gathering together with Jun, Guillaume, Casey, Ike, Hunter, and Vanessa to have a secret farewell to the loss of Hisao who sacrificed himself to save his brother’s life.

And here I thought the Jun/Hisao storyline couldn’t get any more complicated. Nick Spencer, you proved me wrong. Morning Glories #33 centers around Guillaume‘s attempts to reconnect with the boy he loves. He takes the standoffishness of Hisao (who everyone knows as Jun) to be the result of loosing his brother. The truth, however, is far more complicated.

Hunter takes center stage as the latest issue of Morning Glories continues to return to the revolving single-character issues following the aftermath of Irina‘s failed coup d’état. With guilt over the death of Zoe (who was killed while trying to kill him – and noticeably isn’t included in the school’s memorial for the fallen students) and several unanswered questions about the dreams and visions he saw with future Jade, Hunter heads to the Morning Glories Academy library hoping to find the poem and yearbook that each played prominent roles in what the young man saw.

Reset. Early in Season Two the events begun in Season One come to a tipping point as Irina‘s coup, Hunter‘s time travel, and Casey‘s past adventures all bring the Morning Glories students to a single event and sacrifice. This really, really isn’t a good issue to jump in on for new readers, but this issue closes the door on several ongoing arcs allowing for a fresh start, and the fallout of the events covered in the last few issues, to begin next month.

Continuing the stories from the last issue’s Second Season premiere, we are given more of Casey‘s time as Mrs. Clarkson on the fateful night she finished her role by confronting and coercing her mother to make a difficult decision as well as her first night back in to her own time with Miss Hodge on the night she will be asked once again to make a difficult sacrifice in order to set things right.

What the?! Yup, it’s another Four Color Freak-Out covering three weeks(!) of comics, Doctor Who, the vagaries of acronyms versus made-up words, anticipation of the Man of Steel, and the best of 80′s crushes! It’s also 2 hours long! So for those of you with long commutes: You’re welcome. To the rest of you: We’re very, very sorry.

The second season of Morning Glories begins here with Casey‘s return from the past thanks to Hunter and the older Jade resetting the timeline. If you think that means things are going to be less complicated from here on out, you haven’t been reading this comic. After convincing they younger version of herself and her parents to enroll in Morning Glories Academy, Casey steps out of the cave with the memories, but not the mileage, of those experiences to punch Miss Hodge squarely in the jaw.
