Ah, here's a comic I truly love reading when it comes out! This'll be the first non-Marvel review of the week, and here's hoping THIS is the comic to finally get me a perfect score for 2012!
Morning Glories #16:
Summary: Okay, this is an all Casey and Guidance Councilor(why did I cap that?) Hodge issue... We discover that Hodge had managed to get Casey back into the past after that strange ritual from a few issues ago. Unfortunately, the two wound up in an army base... Fortunately, Hodge has some kind of weird telepathy, and makes the soldiers let her and Casey go free. Hodge gives Casey a bag with some clothes, money and a note that tells Casey EXACTLY what she needed to do to help herself, her family and friends. Besides that, Hodge reveals that Casey can also control the minds of others... Huh... With that, Hodge tells Casey to run, and Hodge herself returns to Morning Glories Academy. As for Casey, she does as she was told by Hodge, and uses her newfound powers to escape the army base(and her own father). Casey heads to an airport and books a flight for New York City, ending this one.
Thoughts: Well this was weird... It was good and all(as usual), but everything that happened here was just damn weird! I guess that's par for the course with this series though. So now Casey has been sent back in time, and has some sort of instructions from Hodge that will, I'd imagine, help the rest of the Morning Glories kids in the present... Man is time travel hard to write about! Now, while this WAS a good issue and all, I can't shake the feeling that this issue may well be the catalyst to end this series... I mean I haven't heard that this series was getting canned or was gonna end or anything, but IF Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma wanted to pull the plug, Casey escaping Morning Glories sure as hell would be the way to start knocking down those dominoes and bringing this series to a close... Here's hoping that doesn't happen for a very long time though...
Score: 8 out of 10.
So the Morning Glories kids and faculty have telepathy? Or is it hypnosis... Or is it only Casey??
