REVIEW: M.I.D.A.S.

G’Day Crusaders,

This is Dodgy86 in the mix bringing you M.I.D.A.S. by Tom Taylor with art by Mikiko Ponczeck, cover art by Justin Randall. Published by Gestalt Comics.

Meet MIDAS, a man blessed with extreme powers.. In reality he is cursed. He cannot touch anything unless he needs it destroyed. One touch from his bare hand can cause destruction to a city block. Therefore he doesn’t know the feeling of touching organic objects nor any sense and of cause he doesn’t know the feeling of being touched. He’s confined to a massive suit to contain his power.

Midas uses his intense power and invulnerability to good use, by working as a bomb disposal specialist. A change of fate for poor Midas, during a routine check-up his interim doctor is an open minded female whom he fancies. How would Midas cope with these feelings?
Read it to find out!

Taylor does a great job of highlighting an unusual predicament the antagonist has to deal with on a daily basis. It is very well written and you really cannot help but feel pity for the character as he does not have the ability to live a normal life. Ponczeck’s art helps tell Taylor’s story, it is detailed and very sharp in the characterization with some panels blank and simple, it’s borderline Manga in appearance.

A book that makes you stop and think. It’s well worth a look, do ya’self a favor and check it out!
