The Morning Glories Give-a-way!

For months now we’ve been extolling the virtues of Image Comics’ Morning Glories by one of our favorite writers, Nick Spenser, with the spectacular pencils of Joe Eisma.

Morning Glory Academy is one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country… but something sinister and deadly lurks behind its walls. When six gifted, but troubled, students arrive, they find themselves trapped and fighting for their lives as the secrets of the academy reveal themselves!

We’re big fans here at Ideology of Madness and Funnybooks with Aron and Paulie, so we want to share our love with you.  We’re giving away volume one of Morning Glories, collecting issues 1 thru 6 of the series.

  1. my gift was the ability to always avoid fighting by either a) ridiculing someone, or b) intimidating them.

  2. I was the artist. I created a comic book my senior year – desperately wanted to be Phil Noto.

  3. My gift in high school was the ability to blend in the background. There were some people who thought I was new when I had classes with them before.

  4. My “Gift” was the ability to mediate between the g eeks and the jocks. IT allowed some geeks to get some time on the gym floor without getting beaten up. Very useful in my opinion.

  5. I could clap along to Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” at the proper rhythm, a feat none of my friends were able to accomplish.

  6. my “Gift” was to, no matter how hard I tried to do otherwise, come across to women as the harmless friend, rather than potential boyfriend material.

  7. My “gift” was the ability to stun parents at their door while picking up their daughters for a date. This goth/emo/punk rocker, who wore nail polish, eye liner, and black lipstick while picking up the preppy girl.

  8. My “gift” in high school was the ability to make any girl feel dirty just by looking at her.

  9. My “gift” in high school was my ability to float between any group. I can hang out with the jocks or the goths. I could eat lunch with the kids playing magic or with the band freaks. I could ditch class with the auto class guys and drive around or go with the guys from the graphics class and watch movies and drink while someone’s parents were at work.

  10. My gift was to be something of a freak and geek all at once and achieve mediocre to good grades and therefore not really fit in with many people. It was a sad and lonely existence, yet I survived it.

  11. My gift was being able to translate between anti-social nerd and regular nerd. I used my Cypher-like linguistic abilities to keep the peace on our math team so we could win academic trophies without killing each other!

  12. I think my only “gift” in high school was the ability to mass-produce D&D character sheets.

    I got better.
