MORNING GLORIES does it again with distribution-level sellout of fourth issue
Berkeley, CA – 17 November 2010 – Newsarama says the fourth issue of MORNING GLORIES feels “like a high-stakes poker game,” and readers must be all in along with Newsarama — the fourth issue of the critically acclaimed and best selling series from Shadowline and Image Comics is already sold out at the distribution level!
Image Comics is rushing a second printing of MORNING GLORIES #4, written by Nick Spencer (FORGETLESS, EXISTENCE, SHUDDERTOWN) and drawn by Joe Eisma (EXISTENCE) with covers by Rodin Esquejo (FRACTURED FABLES), to press. The new printing will be in stores December 22, 2010.
“This fourth consecutive sell-out prior to release continues the unprecedented winning streak both Image Comics and Shadowline have been experiencing in recent months, and I couldn’t be prouder!” notes Shadowline publisher Jim Valentino.
Morning Glory Academy is one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country. But behind its hallowed doors, something sinister and deadly lurks.

In the fourth issue of this best-selling series, the Glories come together secretly and hatch a plan to rescue one of their own — and to escape from the sinister clutches of the Academy!
