Morning Glories #10

Keeping in form with the recent issues, issue #10 focuses specifically around Jade. What do you say about a comic that has a character hang herself in the middle of a classroom of her peers at the prompting of her teacher?

What we learn in this issue is that Jade sees reality in many different ways including while dreaming, under some kind of forced hypnosis or sleep, and, even during brief moments of death (real or imagined). The way the story is presented its hard to get a handle on how much is actually happening to Jade and how much of it is in her mind.

What we do know is in this other reality she sees several interesting characters including what appears to be an older version of herself trying to help her along her troubled journey. Like most of the series so far this one raises more questions than answers, and I've got mixed feelings concerning the emotionally explosive hanging sequence, but it's certainly not boring. Worth a look.
