Morning Glories #11
Writer: Nick Spencer
Artist: Joe Eisma
Now this is getting to be more like it. This issue is starting to show me what I had originally hoped to get out of this book. I still don’t understand a lick of what’s happening in the plot—evil school, sexy evil teachers, horny evil students—I guess. Maybe. But this issue was such a smart look into the life of one of the main characters. The development of his mannerisms and motivations is brought to light in ways that Spencer has missed in past issues, in my opinion. I was moved by the story to want to turn the page to see what choices the character would make. And the art, as always, is stellar. It’s easy to transition from present day to the flashbacks and all the characters’ emotions can be seen even in their body language. I still don’t love this book but I want to take it out for coffee and get to know its political views.
“How’s that for results?”
Red Robin #26- 3/5- Hopefully Tim will get better treat in the
reboot revamp relaunch… the new books.
Batman and Robin #26- 3/5- Meh.
Detective Comics #881- 5/5- Oh my good Lord! What a great arc in every sense. From the covers to the interior art to the story to the dialogue. Just stunning.
That’s what I read this week, Plexers.
