Morning Glories Vol. 1 : For a Better Future Review


Any parent would be proud to have their child accepted to an illustrious prep school on full scholarship. In Morning Glories Vol. 1: For a Better Future, Morning Glories Academy has just opened up spots for six students from different parts of the world and their parents couldn’t be happier. But would they feel the same if that school forced students to cut off all contact with the outside world? Or if they knew of all of the other mysterious and horrible things that happen at this particular school? Probably not, but it’s too late for this group to turn down the offer.

This initial set of comics introduces us to the characters and their main predicament. On one side is the new recruits: Casey, Zoe, Hunter, Ike, Jun and Jade. Arriving at Morning Glories Academy as strangers, they must come together to get through some of the worst first days of school ever. If you thought your first days were bad, these kids have to deal with people trying to murder them, elements of the supernatural kind and more.

While Morning Glories Vol. 1: For a Better Future proved to be an enjoyable read, this only opened up way more questions than answers its first six issues. It felt like a series of messed up events strung together without enough substance to piece enough of it together in a way that makes sense. I get that it’s likely intentional, though it did make it difficult at times for me to understand why things played out the way they did. I’m hoping that future issues of Morning Glories fleshes things out a bit more cause I’m not really sure what to make of this debut outing.
