It’s back! The cross between Grange Hill and Lost hits us with another chunky volume ending season one of its story.
This title is almost a victim of its own success. The plot is so elaborate and sophisticated it is almost impossible to comprehend in separate parts. The easiest and most enjoyable way to deal with this wonderful series is to read the whole thing from start to finish after it has ended. But if you have already started you will be clamouring for this volume. Just make sure you re-read what has gone before as this hits the ground running.
To be fair this volume does give you a better idea of what is happening and who people really are. There is also enough Biblical mythos thrown about that you can put some of the bigger picture together too. The ending is dramatic but importantly has a sense of closure.
There is a lot of time travel in this issue and we are jumping backwards and forward every few pages. While this works in TV it isn’t so hot in print. Things are very clearly labelled both in art and words however so you don’t get confused.
The art is staggering as always. It is almost impossible to appreciate standards this high in a monthly title. The colours are amazing with fabulous lighting and wonderful characterisation. There is a mute beginning and plenty of full page panels showing off just what pictures can do. The art needs to be this good however as this is an incredibly wordy book with endless dialogue. Every few pages you will have a disembodied black or white background. Whilst these don’t derail the flow entirely they are a disappointment to such a sumptuous book.
A very high Thumbs Up!

O.K., that "explanation" line, or some variation, appears over a dozen times in this volume, coming from about as many characters. And about half the time the speaker gets a cryptic, baloney explanation and the rest of the time they get none at all.

The drawing is top notch. A lot of the dialogue is snappy, witty, or at a minimum, interesting. The plot, with the wild time travel, dream sequences, supernatural touches, unreliable narrative, and flashbacks within flashbacks, is a complete, indulgent mess. Wherever this is going, this is my stop.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 25 Dec. 2013
Format: Paperback
Volume four of the series of paperbacks which collect issues of Morning Glories. A comic about a group of teenagers who are sent to a very mysterious boarding school. Where very strange things are going on.

This is a mystery story In the style of the tv show Lost. This volume, which collects issues twenty to twenty five of the comic, is therefore not a very good jumping on point. New readers should start with volume one.

Despite being a mystery story about a strange school, Scooby Doo this isn't. And certain aspects of the content such as language and certain situations mean it's only really suitable for grown up readers.

Those who have read volumes one to three read on. Because this can't be reviewed without certain minor spoilers.

At the end of volume three, events left the main characters stranded throughout time and space. In the course of what happens next, some of them meet the Truants. Another group of six pupils. Who arrived at the school two years earlier. Have been through similar experiences. But they're fighting back big time.

As before, lots happens that might not make sense just yet.

The art remains excellent and eye catching. The back two pages of the book do contain a cast of characters, showing the six main ones and the truants. Which you will find yourself flicking to a lot. Because there are a lot of characters in this volume, and as a result some of the six main ones don't get nearly as much to do as the others. If at all.

Of the truants, strong willed Ukrainian girl Irina does have such a strong force of will that she commands the attention. At a glance she can look a bit too similar to one of the others, though.

The first two of these six issues do feel as if they're going somewhere.
