Class struggle

Usually, I avoid fictionalised depictions of schools, with the exception of Channel 4's Teachers (because, yes, teaching is actually almost exactly like that).

Often, it's too cringy to fictional teachers in action as they're either life-changingly amazing (which I'm not) or are nowhere near depicting any sort of accurate level of professionalism.

I make a second exception for Image's Morning Glories, by Nick Spencer. The same Nick Spencer who is writing the super-delayed Infinite Vacation, who wrote two thirds of Supergirl #60. He's generally regarded as a "bright young thing".

The reason that I can read his Morning Glories series is because teaching is almost nothing like that.

After THAT, it gets weird. And if you're tempted to pick this up, then do be aware that it's gory from about page 7.
