Nrama: Morning Glories #50 dubbed as a “finale,” but I know you and Nick Spencer are deeply invested in these characters. There was talk of a new series awhile back. Is that a possibility now, and if so, what will it take?
Eisma: Sure, it's still a possibility. I mean, we sincerely hope to be able to launch Season 3 this year, but like pretty much everything in comics, it's all contingent on sales. The big thing I've started is my own Patreon, where folks can pledge and when I hit a certain milestone, I'm offering an exclusive comic set in the Morning Glories universe. It's called MGA Gossip Girls, and it focuses on some ancillary characters I've …
"It gets good at 30 hours in"
"It takes 2 or 3 times through to get it"
These are frames that over the years I have always sneered at I believe they are excuses for things that arent any good. Morning Glories has proved me wrong simly put Ive gone through the first 49 issues 5 times and each time I found something I missed.
I guess I stand corrected.
Joe's crowdfunding a Patreon-exclusive comic about the Gossip Girls that will be a "fun look at the mythology and social structure of Morning Glory Academy."
Check out his Patreon page for more info and to see the tiered rewards here.
Announced at NYCC15 Morning Glories season 3 will start with a renumbering and a time jump where some of the characters leaving the school physically and mentally
Wikia is trying to push the use of its new infobox markup, with the purpose of increasing compatibility with mobile devices. I've knocked up a test template at Template:PortableInfobox with a corresponding test implementation at User:Zergrinch/Testing.
I'll be playing around a bit with this, although I have no plans to implement it right now. Currently, there is no way to collapse certain sections of the template, and this needs to be formatted using CSS. I may revisit this once the infobox markup becomes refined enough, and once I can be sure nothing will be broken.

Nick Spencer sat down with Comic Book Resources News for a fairly long interview on the "Demerits" (Issues 31-34) arc. Nick answers quite a few questions, and teases on upcoming events.
To check the interview, click here.
I have been re-reading Morning Glories #28, and came across a forgotten reference -- in Hunter's dream, someone asked him to give a melon to Mr. N. As you know, Mr. N is a real character, and appears in Issue #30 as Irina's private tutor.
This leads me to wonder about Jade's explanation about Descartes's dreams.
I would like to investigate this more deeply, and have come across a JStor article which seems to do just that. Unfortunately, it is protected by a paywall ($17). I was wondering if anyone reading this blog has access to JStor via an educational institution. If so, the link to the journal article is here: http://www.jstor.org/discover/10.2307/750999?uid=3738824&uid=2&uid=4&sid=21102607695821
MORNING GLORIES is gearing up for back-to-school! The Image Comics series by Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma is prepping for Fall, just like any diligent student of the prestigious Morning Glory Academy, where nothing is as it seems and a failing grade can mean death.
The MORNING GLORIES team is getting an early start, with the fifth trade paperback, collecting the “Tests” story arc from issues #26-29, out on August 28, the same day as MORNING GLORIES #30, the first issue of the next story arc, “Demerits.”
Following that, the highly anticipated second MORNING GLORIES Deluxe Edition hardcover will be released in September, collecting issues #13-25, which are also collected in the third and fourth volumes of the trade paperbacks. The Deluxe Edition w…
Kevin Mellon (HEART, SUICIDE SISTERS) gives us this cover featuring our favorite bald finger-painter.

Six pages of Morning Glories #28, out tomorrow.
So cover 5/8 is by Jeff Lemire of Sweet tooth and Essex Country. I find it a particularly unsettling portrait of Casey. Will anyone else be seeing this in their nightmares?
The fourth cover for Issue 29 is the "twisted Disney" cover featuring Pamela. It's by Edwin Huang of Skullkickers. Is this the first time we've deviated from the Morning Glories title font?
Here's something to offset the back to school blues! September is gifting us with not one, but TWO issues of Morning Glories: Issues #31("Say goodbye.") and #32 ("Stories we tell."). We're also getting the Vol. 2 hardcover which collects issues #13-25 as well as a bunch of bonus features. http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=46018
Two more covers for Issue 29!

Nick Spencer has released the third variant cover for Morning Glories #28: A creepy one with your favorite sadistic nurse. By Frazer Irving from BEDLAM and UNCANNY X-MEN. Order with Diamond Order Code APR130560.
We know that the Glories are born on May 4, Star Wars day. The series (except the first page), in Issue 1, also starts about a week before that. Now, we have an academic calendar from Issue #16, where Dan Blevins' memories about his daughter's t-shirt logo were rekindled. Although it is not completely legible, it is clear that May 4 is on the fourth day of the week.
Now, there are calendars that start on a Monday, and calendars that start on a Sunday. I have reason to believe this calendar starts on a Sunday, because the letters in the first and last columns are a lighter shade. This is what you would expect in an academic calendar where weekends are free days.
If this is the case, we can confirm that May 4 of MGA Year 0 is on a Wednesday. W…

I guess Issue 28 is also getting 8 covers. The first one is a sexy Hisao/Guillaume one (I guess they make up eventually). They have been getting some amazing talent for these variant covers!
