Morning Glories is probably one of the most talked about books of 2010 and Nick Spenser has become a breakout writing talent because of it. He’s already working on a project with Robert Kirkman for his Skybound line at Image and is working on DC Comic’s Agents of Thunder. I’m pretty sure he’s got a project brewing at Marvel too. So with issue #7 Morning Glories is doing the unheard of… it’s dropping it’s price. Here’s a book that has had third printing of the first two issues and second printings for the the next two and because of it’s success it’s dropping it’s price. I have to commend them on that.
A while back a reader (the real deal) posted a comment comparing “Morning Glories” to “Bad Kids Go To Hell”, which inspired me to check out the trade. After reading the first four issue of Morning and the trade for Bad Kids I have to say… there are similarities. But I digress, look for a review and comparison piece for those on a later date. All I can say for sure is that I love the covers to book. That cover artist is selling a LOT of issues! Now if we could only get them to do the interiors as well…
Here’s what Image had to say:
The fans have spoken, making MORNING GLORIES a bestseller! Each issue of the series has been a sellout, and to thank fans, Shadowline and Image Comics are dropping the cover price from $3.50 to $2.99 with issue #7!
For those of you who may have missed an issue of the hit series — written by Nick Spencer (FORGETLESS, EXISTENCE, SHUDDERTOWN) and drawn by Joe Eisma (EXISTENCE) with covers by Rodin Esquejo — Image is also releasing the first trade for the special introductory price of $9.99! The trade collects the first six issues of the hottest series of the year and will be in stores February 16, 2011, one week before MORNING GLORIES #7.
“Issue 7 starts a new story arc, making it the perfect jumping-on point for new fans,” says Spencer. “The combination of the specially priced trade and the lower price for issues is a boon, both for myself and the fans. I get to keep telling an electrifying story while fans get to enjoy all the thrills at a more affordable price!”
Adds Shadowline Publisher Jim Valentino, “We wanted to thank the dedicated fans of MORNING GLORIES for all their support. We wouldn’t be able to drop the price of the comic if they hadn’t embraced the series so whole-heartedly. So, thank you, and stay tuned for more twists as the Glories take on the Academy!”
Morning Glory Academy is one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country. But behind its hallowed doors, something sinister and deadly lurks. When six brilliant but troubled new students arrive, they find themselves trapped and desperately seeking answers in a place where nothing is what it seems to be!
MORNING GLORIES VOL. 1: FOR A BETTER FUTURE TP (DEC100470), a 192-page full-color graphic novel for the special introductory price of $9.99, will be in stores February 16, 2011. MORNING GLORIES #7 (DEC100486), a 32-page full-color comic for the new low price of $2.99, will be in stores February 23, 2011.

Lastly… way to go Shadowline for green lighting this book! It’s selling like gang busters and a half a dozen other cliche’s so hopefully someone got a promotion off of it!
