Morning Glories #20

The latest issue of Morning Glories gives us a glimpse into the relationship of Ms. Daramount and Miss Hodge and their past together as children without revealing all that much about the broader themes and specifics writer Nick Spencer continues to keep close to the vest.

Although Joe Eisma's art is beautiful to look at, and Spencer gives us another unexpected (and bloody) twist, the dialogue between characters, especially between the young Miss Hodge and the time traveling Vanessa feels far too intentionally vague (as if the characters themselves knew you were reading the story and didn't want to give anything important away).

That said, we do get quite a long look at the sibling rivalry of the two sisters for the affections of their (still yet to be shown) father as well as why Hodge is content with her current role. We also get foreshadowing about which of the students Hodge sees as the most dangerous to her plans. Worth a look.
