The Hour of Its Release Draws Near: MORNING GLORIES COMPENDIUM

November 13, 2014

1,048-page collection of “Lost in a boarding school” cult hit comic out in December

Often described as “Runaways meets Lost,” MORNING GLORIES by Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma is getting its very own massive compendium edition that collects the first 38 issues of the supernatural suspense series.

Over 1,048 pages, six brilliant new students find something much different from what they expected within the walls of what, to outsiders, looks like a prestigious college preparatory boarding school. Pit against each other in deadly battles of wits and wills, the students meet the insurrectionist Truants and begin to unravel the sinister secrets of Morning Glory Academy.

A cult hit among fans who analyze and theorize where the twisting plot points are heading (such as in the MGA Study Hall at Multiversity Comics and the Morning Glories Wiki), MORNING GLORIES now has the perfect volume for readers who want to delve into its world and perhaps answer the question “What did you see when your eyes were opened?”

MORNING GLORIES VOLUME 1 COMPENDIUM will be in comic book stores on December 3 and in bookstores on December 16. It is available for pre-order now.

An in-depth discussion of MORNING GLORIES with writer Nick Spencer at Comics Alliance:

"...the fandom for this thing, the community around this book, is so amazing to me. That’s the most rewarding part of all this: the fantastic annotation at Study Hall, and the Tiny Chats we’ve started over the past few issues where we’re gathering with the fans and talking over there, the Tumblr tag… all of this stuff that’s sprung up around the book, it’s incredible to me. I don’t think that any book has the infrastructure and community and analysis around it that Morning Glories has. That’s surpassed anything I ever dreamed of. I look at that and say, “I wouldn’t trade my career with anybody’s, just because no one else writes this book.”
