WHY WE LOVE IT: An edge-of-your-seat, save the universe adventure with two butt-kickin’ ladies and a dinosaur in a spacesuit? Yes, please! The Midas Flesh was the first comic to come from our BOOM! Box imprint, and it’s everything we love about quirky comics made “for the love of it.”
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Ryan North (Dinosaur Comics), Shelli Paroline, and Braden Lamb have already proven to be an unstoppable team on their award-winning Adventure Time run. Now North’s debut original print comic book series will leave the reader reeling from start to gilded finish.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: We’ve all heard of the Midas touch. You know, the Greek myth about the man who did a number on himself by wishing for everything he touched to turn to gold? Well, you haven’t heard everything. Joey and her space crew have decided to return to Earth—a planet completely sectioned off, abandoned, and covered in gold–to find out exactly what happened to this once thriving planet and see if they can use that knowledge against the evil empire that’s tracking them down. As luck would have it, they just landed the most powerful weapon in the universe: some ancient dead guy’s body. Collects issues #1-4.
