He’s been brought on by the Special Crimes Division of the FDA, the most powerful law enforcement agency on the planet, to investigate their strangest, sickest and most bizarre cases.

    Morning Glories looks really interesting. I just finished reading Hack/Slash: MFM last night and it was a really great read. I love this story.

    I was thinking the same thing about Morning Glories, it does seem fairly interesting. Although I do think so far that it kinda sounds like this new live action show that’s starting on Cartoon Network; grab bag of typical kids (jock, nerd, miss popular, asian) all attending some school with a uniform policy but they have no contact to the outside world and no idea where they are besides the obvious of being in a school.
