morning glory academy

anonymous asked:

Hi, could you rec some good comics that are not from Marvel or DC if you read any? Thank you :)

i have a v long list prepared for this question at all times:

coffin hill / comixology / vertigo 

  • “in the town of coffin hill, things that are buried have a tendency to come back”
  • focuses a lot on witchcraft and crime of the supernatural variety??
  • female protagonist who’s a cop and also a witch!!!
  • super dark/creepy vibe

morning glories / comixology / image

  • “morning glory academy is one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country, but behind it’s hallowed doors something sinister and deadly lurks”
  • super!!!! diverse cast in terms of race, sexuality, gender etc
  • kids in a creepy ass school that is maybe trying to kill them?? sacrifice them?? things are still unclear but the plot is super clever
  • honestly i love this comic if ur gonna listen to me on anything let it be this
  • also choice quotations, including classics such as:

the wicked and the divine / comixology / image

  • “every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. they are loved. they are hated. in two years, they are dead”
  • everyone’s gay and wears rly nice outfits 
  • starts off quite slowly but in the most recent issues everyone’s shit is wrecked and it is INTENSE

rat queens / comixology / image

  • “who are the rat queens? a pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they’re in the business of killing all god’s creatures for profit”
  • like what dungeons and dragons would be if d & d was cool

alex + ada / comixology / image

  • man acquires robot and proceeds to fall in love with said robot and then man and robot hide from the authorities 
  • imagine if the terminator movies were romantic

sex criminals / comixology / image

  • a sex comedy for comics”
  • as the name suggests, it is not……. family friendly
  • literally the epitome of not being safe for work??
  • but it is hilarious and ppl can freeze time with their orgasms
  • and then they commit crimes. sex. crime. sex criminals. ha
  • dick jokes. everywhere

jem & the holograms / comixology / idw

  • about a glam rock girl band
  • based on the old cartoon!!!
  • 10/10 for hairstyles

ody c / comixology / image

  • “in the aftermath of a galactic war a hundred years long, odyssia the clever champion and her compatriots begin their longest, strangest trip yet: the one home”
  • a sci fi retelling of the odyssey with women
  • the art is soooo neat and everything is colourful
  • obviously heavy on the mythology but in a super innovative way??

pretty deadly / comixology / image

  • has like an old west setting which is ??? p neat in a comic actually
  • female protag as well as a female creative team!!!
  • the art is rly pretty and the writing is soooo nice, everything is a metaphor and its v clever

saga / comixology / image

  • “star wars-style action collides with game of thrones-esque drama in this original sci-fi/fantasy epic”
  • focuses on a couple in space who have recently just had a child also in space
  • follows a wide range of characters and their stories etc
  • and it’s in space so u know its cool

lazarus / comixology / image

  • “in a dystopian near-future government is a quaint concept, resources are coveted, and posession is 100% of the law”
  • revolves around the idea of a “lazarus” which is basically a person made to defend a rich family, and pretty much can’t die but also gets treated like shit
  • female protagonist with a sword how could u not read it

hexed / comixology (v1) (v2) / boom

  • “blood. theft. sex. magic”
  • a girl called lucifer works as a supernatural thief
  • you can start reading at either v1 or v2, things will still make sense in v2 if you havent read v1
  • another one of my faves!!!!

ok thats basically it before this list gets even longer, there are definitely more but these are the ones im most invested in?? so yeah??? read these comics pls

Morning Glories fans–you, yes YOU, can be a part of the book.  After 40+ issues, it’s getting to be an issue coming up with looks for the various students, guards, and other background characters throughout the book.  This is where you come in.

 As I have mentioned on my various social networking sites, readers can cameo in the book if they so please.  All you need to do is email me some pictures of your face to joe(at)supajoe(dot)com, and I will get you in the book at the earliest convenience.  I will email you to let you know what issue you’ll be in, and when we get closer to publication, send you a snapshot of your cameo in the book.

This has been pretty popular so far–with issue 41 in particular being loaded with fan cameos!

The one disclaimer I have regarding cameos is that your character may in fact die a gruesome death in the book.  

As an added bonus, for being such a good sport for participating–I will do a free head sketch of your character if you see me at a convention!  Offer only good at conventions, not through the mail. 

By the way Morning Glories Volume 1 is really good, has amazing art and badass characters basically.

Also, Casey is a strong lead, I’d say?


I might start shipping him with Hunter

But they really are very cute


and omg I actually temporarily want to go to Morning Glory Academy


I’d probably accidentally get myself killed so
