Surprisingly the latest issue of Morning Glories doesn’t jump to the storylines of other characters this month (as has been the series’ formula), instead we pick up from last month’s issue as Hunter, Jun (really Hisao) and the new kids attempt to stop an all important sacrifice. At least I think that’s what they are doing because, not surprising at all, the comic gives us scant information or true motivations on what is really happening.
The comic jumps around a bit from the current situation to flashbacks from the Morning Glories Academy two years ago. In the flashbacks we see another student who has had their “eyes opened” as Jade did a few issues back. The current storyline also reinstates the idea that for students at the academy time and space aren’t really an issue as Hunter and his new friends find themselves using Sumerian ruins to travel through time to save Abraham.
We get a tease that we’ll learn what Hunter is actually good at in this issue, but other than an ability to get shot we don’t really get an idea what his special gift might be. For fans.
