Morning Glories

“Upending authority, destroying power structures, wreaking general havoc — why wouldn’t I do it?”

Morning Glory Academy is taking on a new class of students who think they’re entering a prestigious prep school.  Too bad the Academy is only a facade for a far darker, even deadly, purpose.

What is the Academy’s secret?  Can the new class take on the administration and save themselves when they don’t truly know what they’re saving themselves from?

 
My Review:  The mysterious underbelly of the Academy intrigued me from the very beginning, when a student tries her best to take out her teacher with a homegrown explosive.  I loved the students, especially Casey, the leader of the new class – she’s smart, wily, and unwilling to submit to the administration’s scare tactics.  The teachers are deliciously menacing as they take pleasure in the trials they put their students through. 

This is volume one of this graphic novel series and there are a lot of unanswered questions that will make future volumes exciting.  Who is that ghostly figure in the basement who kills those who misbehave? Does the school have a link to the Spanish Inquisition?  What is their ultimate goal and is time travel a part of it?  Check out Morning Glories by Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma today and leave your theories in the comments.
