BOOM! Box’s First Trade The Midas Flesh Vol. 1 is out in December
Nearly one year ago, BOOM! Studios announced their newest imprint BOOM! Box, a home for comics “made for the love of it.” The publisher has announced the collected first volume of the imprint’s inaugural series, The Midas Flesh. Created by the longtime creative theam behind the Adventure Time comics, writer Ryan North and artists Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb, The Midas Flesh is an edge-of-your-seat, save-the-universe adventure with two butt-kickin’ ladies and a dinosaur in a spacesuit. The first volume collects issues #1-4 of this quirky space epic and features a casewrap covered in striking gold fingerprints.
About The Midas Flesh: 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.
The Midas Flesh Vol. 1 trade paperback arrives in comic shops on December 3rd with a cover price of $14.99. The cover is illustrated by Emily Partridge.
