    Read Morning Glories all the way and wait for the next installments. Unless you have no patience for gradually developing narratives, that is.

    The trades are a good way to read the story if you can't stand the wait between MG single issues.

    I gave up on Morning Glories! Can't see what all the fuss is about. Is it the teens in school girl uniforms? Do they ever get around to explaining what the heck is going on with this school?

    Yeah, it's definitely "the teens in school girl uniforms", no other reason..................
    (I miss the rolleyes smiley sometimes)
    As for the explanations, it's like an Agatha Christie novel that has, say, 200 pages. I wouldn't expect to know who the killer is by page 50.

    I guess not. This seems more like reading a book by an author that's probably not the same caliber as Christie, which has no end in sight (could be 200 or 1,000 pages, we won't know until we get there) and hasn't even hooked me after reading it for over a year (I quit afer #14, IIRC).

    Revival, Revival and Revival.

    After recent trades, they still haven't explained what was going on?

    If the series was planned for 25 issues, they probably would have. Nick Spencer plans it for a bit longer though. #25 is labeled as the end of Season One.

    To people lacking patience for longer and complex tales, I'd suggest waiting for the series to be completed and read it from start to finish. Some of us enjoy following the story as it develops.

    Otherwise, there's plenty of simpler series in Marvel Now and DC New 52.

    I hope I don't get people pissed for this, but you should check out the massive from darkhorse, it's really good, I don't know if you were looking for indie books or specifically image, but either way this one by Wood is really, really good...

    There are simplier stories at Image too... I know, I read some of them.

    What I read from Image

    Walking Dead
    Invincible
    Guarding the Globe
    Chew
    Danger Club
    Glory
    Legend of Luther Strode
    Peter Panzerfaust
    Saga
    Skullkickers
    Whispers
    Hell Yeah
    Epic Kill
    America's Got Powers
    Blackacre
    CyberForce
    NonHuman
    Youngblood
    Bloodstrike
    Supreme
    Savage Dragon


    Added to Pull
    Five Weapons
    End Times of Bram and Ben



    I read the the first 2 Morning Glories trades and it never got anywhere... I like some pay off when I read comics. I think its just Spencer's writing style... I read teh first 2 issues of Thief of Thieves and thats how I felt about that book... 2 issues in and it still didnt get to the story... Not a way to keep this guy coming back.

    My thoughts exactly up until I started reading Spencers Bedlam. After Sandy Hook/ Newtown it's too much for me, but others may not be bothered by it's premise. Otherwise just about everything from Image is stellar.

    Yeah, there's lots of great books in there that don't make you wait 25 issues before you get any satisfaction! I read plenty of those myself.
