"We first meet Micah in issue one in a scene that sets character and story so perfectly that even now, a month or so after first reading, I still find myself smiling at the thought of."
Monkey on my Back Podcast Review
Issues 1, 2 ,3 and 4 by James Gillie
"The characters seem to hesitate between terror and elation, between crawling under their bed while hugging their teddy bears, to shouting from the rooftops 'I can make a tornado appear!'"
Issues 1, 2 and 3 review
"I must say I'm now even more intrigued about the world he's building with Elemental Micah."
Issue 4 review
The Gay Comics List - by François Peneaud
"Perhaps 'hero' wasn’t a fully appropriate term. It’s easy to see how somebody shy or lonely, somebody a little overweight and conscious of it, somebody gay, could see themselves in Micah’s shoes in a way that they couldn’t with Clark Kent or Jason Bourne."
Vol. 1 Just Exhale Review
A Place to Hang your Cape - by Joe Sport
"Elemental Micah blends the outlandish fantasy of superhero comics with the bittersweet existentialism of confessional autobiography to create a story that, so far, is one of the most enjoyable, touching and genuinely intriguing I've read for a long time."
Antidotes to DC Comics - by C.J. Lines Starburst Magazine
"(Usually) puberty is the catalyst for an otherwise normal appearing kid to develop mutant powers, but what if the catalyst is sex, or even the anticipation of sex with someone you desire? Georgiou answers that question, and it has both unforeseen consequences on personal and epic scales."
Gay League Review
Issues 1, 2 and 3 - by Joe Palmer
Who is Elemental Micah?
When you lost your virginity, did you feel like a God? Micah did.
For a guy who is overweight, slobby, gay with very poor eyesight, a very broken nose and a name people never seem to get right, you wonder whether the Fates were on the ale when they were choosing him.
Or did the Fates choose him?
How did he gain these powers? Did he earn them mystically, inherit them from his family or was he in contact with a radioactive animal of sorts?
And what's the purpose of having these powers? There aren't any super villains around, so who does he really have to fight? Is there actually a need for a person with such luxuries if, as it is believed, he is the only one?
Until he finds out, he'll keep having his misadventures with Dana, Simon and his dog Alfonzo and hopefully he'll discover the meaning of his existence.
While Micah, Dana, Simon and Alfonzo have their own stories to tell, there are certain mysteries and fables, urban legends if you will, floating about from varying sources, such as leaked military documents, revered clairvoyants and even the odd children's author.
Whether these stories are the invention of manipulative or delusional individuals is always up for debate, but it is important to document such events as even rumours and myths stem from some truth. If nothing else, they're most certainly an intriging read.
