It's time for speculation and fan-love to abound as we peek through the looking glass and into the far off future that will be August 2010. There's plenty of things that we each want to discuss, we don't necessarily list our buy list but simply discuss what we feel is comment worthy, for good or bad reasons. And it sure looks to be a big August because nearly the whole crew got together on this one, which is always nice.
Morning Glories #1
Man, this series has been getting some series press with teaser images and plenty of speculation. And, I'll admit, it does look good. Nick Spencer seems to have come out of nowhere and been given a handful of green lights to make projects happen, with the Existence books and Shuddertown. He's becoming one of Image's rising names and the company has certainly put themselves completely behind making Morning Glories another major hit. Getting teasers for characters in a series we've never heard of is a bold move, but Image seem to be full of bold moves right now. My only problem with this title, as it stands, is that I don't exactly know what it's about. We know there's some cool kids at a prep school but that's about as deep as my knowledge runs. I'd like to see a bit more before I commit, but I'm sure Image will give us plenty more before it hits the shelves.
