    Rhymes With Geek - Josh Reifler Jan 22, 2014

    This is a cool little gem of a comic that shouldn't pass under your radar. Boom! Box is clearly geared towards younger readers but this is a fun all-ages book that has elements of classic storytelling mixed with some new ideas. If you like sci-fi and adventure comics you will definitely enjoy this book! Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Jan 20, 2014

    With only two out of eight issues released for The Midas Flesh there is still plenty of adventure to come. So far this series has been a fun adventure which can be a sometime rare occurrence with most comics being so gritty and over-violent for a more mature audience. When you hear the term “all ages” for some reason most people immediately think it's a kids book that's beneath them. However, The Midas Flesh is an all ages book that truly can be appreciated by reader of all ages. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Adam X. Smith Jan 25, 2014

    Paroline and Lamb's work reminds me of Darwyn Cooke in his prime (always a vote of confidence), and even at eight issues in length, the story doesn't feel baggy. Kudos to North for getting the all-important balance of world/universe-building and character development spot on, giving us just enough to want more. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Jan 22, 2014

    The other objective that the story meets is that it keeps your attention. Sure, it is a little unconventional, but it is well done and I am interested in seeing where the following issues will go. The possibilities seem limitless at the moment and North offers the reader little teases to what this story might become. We will just have to see. Read Full Review
