summary ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ¹ Ryan North

This is literally crazy Joey and her space crew have found King Midas' body and turned it into the most powerful weapon of all time With the ability to transform any planet into gold within secon. I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalleyThe copy I received was volumes 1 and 2 combined but it has not been added to Goodreads like that so I am going to be writing one review for the whole series and using it for both volumes on herevolume one rating 3 starsvolume two rating 2 starsoverall rating 25 starsIt took me maybe an issue or so to get into this but I did find the first volume pretty enjoyable once I got into the swing of things The author definitely took the whole Midas curse to the maximum level with him literally turning the entire planet into gold I think it was a cool take on the myth because it always says 'turn EVERYTHING I touch into gold' but obviously it doesn't mean everything everything because then you would get something like this It was overall a pretty decent story and I liked the three main characters well enough With volume two I thought things took a definite dive The villain was pretty two dimensional as far as I was concerned and I'm not sure why he went so far off the deep end with the Midas Flesh I mean I get that he works for an evil mega corporation but he definitely had some mental issues as well The real reason this volume only got two stars though was for the last issue The whole thing just felt like such a cop out I mean I guess that if we're in a world where this happened then we have to accept that the Greek gods actually do exist and have powers and whatnot but I always feel that a LITERAL deus ex machina is such a crap ending so I was rolling my eyes all through that Overall decent concept but I'm not sure I would have read past the first issue if I didn't have an ARC of it Also the art style was really cartoony so I had a hard time trying to figure out what the target age range here was I think it was geared towards teens adults just because of the subject matter so the juvenile art style was maybe not the best choice

The Midas Flesh Vol 2ADVENTURE TIME debut original print comic book series THE MIDAS FLESH featuring art by illustration dynamos Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb ADVENTURE TIME with an ending that nobody could predict. I had a hard time following what was happening in the story but that may have been because I didn't read the first volume A fascinating little story with an interesting if a bit weird premise and a lovely twist ending

So I tried not to just flood my reading list for the year with comics I find reading comics really easy and uick and my challenge to myself wasn't to read x number of things Goodreads counts as books it was to read full text books than I have been; no disrespect to comics at all I just didn't need any help there but the fact of the matter is that for a few weeks there I spend basically all of my spare time reading comics so if I don't acknowledge at least some of that I'm likely to fall behind on my self set challenge and I don't think the stress of trying to catch up is conducive to good readingThat being said this was so much of a delight than I expected I've long been a fan of North's Dinosaur Comics and it's not at all a surprise that he would be capable of writing a good story but I would have jumped on The Midas Flesh much uicker if I knew it's essentially one of his explosive deconstructions of the full ramifications of a concept from our history mythology or idioms Nobody is likely to do a better job presenting the full horrific ramifications of King Midas's curse if it worked as literally advertised and so in its second half here the review of which stands as my take on the full series whoops should have said that earlier the story becomes a real thriller about the implications of that and its possible use and misuse I expected the wonderful humour and characters and great grasp of language; I didn't exactly expect the very real sense of tension and dread I felt reading The Midas Flesh Really top notch work and I'm sometimes guilty of undermentioning this like a lot of people who talk about comic books but Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb do a really great job with the artwork too
