These people will learn why King Midas’ corpse is the ultimate weapon

Three space travelers arrive at the long abandoned planet Earth only to discover the entire planet turned to gold. Then they discover the corpse of King Midas, whose powers remain. It's a bizarre tale only Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics and the amazing Adventure Time comics could do! Or would, probably!

And yes, that is a Utahraptor in an astronaut outfit.
