Morning Glories #1
Spencer, Eisma, Esquejo
Morning Glories is a comic book that immediately smells and feels like a comic book that is similar to the idea behind the X-Men. The premise is that gifted high school aged students are selected for enrollment into a special academy. However, the academy is not anything that appears to be good for the students as the comic book quickly veers off any path that might be confused as one similar to the X-Men. This issue establishes some of the key students of the current crop of enrollees and sets up the mystery and danger that the academy seems to hold. It's a very good idea, story and execution for an oversized opening issue.
