MGA Study Hall: Issue #38



by Matthew Meylikhov

Hello and welcome back to MGA Study Hall, where all things Morning Glories are analyzed, dissected and poured over with the hope that we can figure out just what is going on!

Today’s issue is issue #38, the Abraham and Ike issue. I can’t say any more than that.

Join me as I discuss the issue, its story and the possible hidden secrets that we may or may not be picking up on. I should note: this column contains massive spoilers for the issue. Enormous. Colossal, even. The issue is out today, so make sure to read it first before you read our thoughts. It helps to give the issue a few read throughs before coming to us, but consider this your warning about impending spoilers.

So, You’re Going To Die



This is a comic book that my friend Kirk wrote, which I worked on in my spare time throughout 2013. I’m pretty pleased with how it came out. A couple of people have got back to us saying this book helped them out, which is nice.

I like it ‘cause it doesn’t look like my other stuff- I’m trying a quick and dirty Robert Crumb style with nibs pens and other things I don’t normally do. 




You can read the whole thing here. 

I’ve had this issue for a very long time. I’ve never figured out how to deal with it, and every now and then it comes up and I have a panic attack (although my panic attacks have become decidedly easier to maintain as I grow older).

This was an interesting read to this regard, certainly.

This book is a HORRIBLE LIE.  Just horrible.  I did not write this book.

The book I wrote was called NOT ALL POKÉMEN and was a documentary about Pokémon and the men who catch them (they call themselves “Pokémen”)

(but it was only about some of them, because there are a lot of Pokémen out there and I was up against a deadline)




Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.

Part One

Part Two

Part Three

Part Four

Part Five

Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008.  It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there.  It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them.  A larger work gets talked about from time to time.  It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories.  Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans.  Thank you for taking the time to read it.
