Midas Flesh, The: Issue #1 (2013)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
09.23.14

Midas Flesh, The: Issue #1 (2013) The story begins with how life is a miracle and that life brings more life. A spaceship, piloted by a human and some reptile aliens, is approaching earth, though they have to get past a bunch of old Federation satellites.

On earth, in the Mediterranean, King Midas awakens and he sees a "passed-out drunk dude" in his garden. He goes outside and meets an old man--Silenus. He invites him in for breakfast as he's making eggs. Then he goes to Silenus' village and meets his son Dionysus. After some partying, he asks King Midas what he'd wish for. He replies "I'd like everything I touch to turn to gold." And, by some sort of second miracle, it comes true. When he wakes up in the morning the entire city is gold--and everything that gold touches turns to gold so that the entire planet is transforme.

When the spaceship lands on earth, it's this gold planet, which I presume is the reason they are there-- for the gold.

I wasn't so impressed with this first issue-- it never works for me when people of ancient cultures speak like modern-day surfers. Also, the artwork is a bit simplistic--it took me a while to figure out if the main human piloting the spacecraft was a man or a woman. Eh.
