DC Comics Releases : "Legends of the Dark Knight: MICHAEL GOLDEN"




DC Comics has just released a 248 page hardcover on the Batman works of artist Michael Golden.


Artist/writer/creator Michael Golden, is a legend in the comic book industry, but one that has never stopped adding to his legacy as a storytelling professional. Co-creator of the X-men's Rogue character, Spartan X and Bucky O'Hare, Michael  is known worldwide for his groundbreaking work on "Star Wars,"  "The 'Nam," "Micronauts,"  "G.I. Joe Yearbook," and  "Dr. Strange, " among MUCH more, and is counted as one of the best cover designers and illustrators in the business.

Golden's work can be seen on covers from "The Walking Dead," to "Civil War," the new "Rom,"  "Deadpool," the new "Micronauts,"  "Spawn," "Nightwing", "Iron Man", "Heroes for Hire", "Exiles,"  "Spiderman," "Vampirella," "Captain American," "The Punisher"  to "The Hulk," as well as numerous other titles, for about every company out there. 

It's no wonder that Golden has been one of the most influential creators around for the last several decades:

"....unless you can actually draw yourself, it is very difficult to understand the exact mind-blowing impossibility of what he does," said writer/artist Larry Hama, of Golden's work.

"Michael blithely puts down on paper exactly what he sees in his head. It's like he's got a cosmic opaque projector that shoots a laser beam from his brain through the kundalini eye in his forehead straight down onto the drawing surface where all he has to do is trace it," continues Hama. "The result is hard-edged and fully realized in every way. No fuzzy impressions here. No using the side of the pencil. No squiggly space-filling lines blocked in on automatic pilot. To paraphrase Neal Adams (who was referring to Golden), there is not a single millimeter of line on the page that is not directed by conscious thought."

Recent books covering the colorful life and amazing art of Michael Golden include a Manga version of the "Bucky O'Hare" series,  as well as the top selling art retrospective "Excess: The Art of Michael Golden," written by Renee Witterstaetter, which sold out and has gone into a second printing, as well as his sketchbooks "Heroes and Villains," "MORE Heroes and Villains, "  "Michael Golden: Alchemy," and "Dangerous Curves."

Michael has served as an Editor at DC Comics as well as Senior Art Director at Marvel Comics, and has worked on scores of movie production projects, some currently in development. 
His art has been the focus of gallery shows in places as diverse as Gijon, Barcelona, New York, Antwerp and Brussels, while his class on storytelling has been conducted from Spain to Brussels to France to Canada to the United States... and most recently China.


He has recently been awarded with Lifetime Achievement Awards from The University of Maryland Eastern Shore  and the Lille Arts Festival. with gallery shows of his work in Spain, New York, Maryland and Moscow, and many points in between.

This new book from DC Comics  collects his stories from:

 Batman Family #15-20, 
Batman #295, #303, 
DC Special Series #15, 
Detective Comics #482, 
Batman Special #1, 
Batman: Gotham Knights #22. 

It also collects the covers from Detective Comics #625-626, 628-631, 633, 644-646, Batman #484-485, Showcase '93, Nightwing #66-77 & #129-130 and the Man-Bat entry from Who's Who in the DC Universe #12.”

A Very Singular Day



Yesterday was my birthday.

It is the second one without the familiar call and the familiar voice, relating to me the circumstances of my birth. 

After many years of practice though, I know it by heart, and can relate it to you thus:

Mom was at my Aunt Aba’s house. On a Sunday. After church. During lunch, her water broke, so they finished eating (priorities) and then took her to the hospital. But much as I am still, I didn’t arrive until the evening…and as a result, I never have been a morning person. 

I don’t think I was a particularly painful birth. I’m sure I caused her pain later… And if so , it causes me much regret. But IF so, she hardly commented on it. 

Mom was love that way. 

So here I am… no phone call… and left to my own devices, here is what I did:

I slept late until 9:30. 

I stayed in my pajamas all day. 

I proceeded to place all the paintings that had been sitting in the corner for the last year in proper and pleasing places, and then found I had no idea where the hammer was. 

I went online and looked at houses totally out of my price range and which I don’t intend on buying, but it was fun to look. 

I googled an old friend out of curiosity to see if he is still alive. He is.

I worked a little, but not much.

I ran on the treadmill for 2 miles, did sit ups, leg curls, and weights. At one point I tried to do chin ups like Linda Hamilton preparing for Apocolypco. It did not go well. 

I smelled the roses. (Thank you to who sent them.)

I bought a Mary Poppins tea pot that was on clearance. And then remembered I don’t have any British friends in LA any more and certainly no PG TIPS. And I hardly ever drink tea. 

I ate dark chocolate. 

For lunch I had a mishmosh of eggs, salsa (Pace of course), jalapeƱos, and cherry tomatoes. And not the norm, I had a very fattening toasted egg bagel with cream cheese. 

I drank coffee. A lot. It’s an antioxidant so I don’t’ feel bad about it. Don’t judge me. 

I polished the furniture in my LA apartment and swept the hardwood floors. At one point I recreated a scene from “Risky Business,” but we won’t go into that. 

I sang a song. Out loud. Not just in my head. I’m sure people could probably hear. 

I didn’t care. 

(I admit I may have sang two.)

I tried to assemble some electronic candles covered in silver glitter. Now I am as well. 

I drank a glass of red wine. Also an antioxidant. Don't judge me. 

I missed my Mom. 

I enjoyed this singular day of doing “nothing.” A rare occurrence, and a chance to reflect on gratefulness:

For every hour and every second so far…

Thanks to everyone that stopped by to say “hello.” It meant alot. 

And in the end, I sat on the balcony and watched a sunset that looked like a Phoenix rising from the ashes. 

I feel that way every year. 

WHAT an adventure.

A Love Story

Mom and Dad on their wedding day.


A Love Story:

Because two people loved each other:

40 years


3 children
8 Grandkids (none of them mine. LOL)
15 Great Grandkids 


All because Raymond saw a shy girl named Erma at East Texas Motor Freight and walked to a pay phone every day to call her at night, spent some of the little money he had to buy flowers for her every Sunday, accompanied by a little note to tell her how much he loved her. 

All because Mom said “Yes.”

For me personally, this had great benefits:

Our Family.

I was born, first of all. A good way to start. 

This was followed by the facts that:

I had a roof over my head.
I was never hungry one day in my life.
I was warm.
I had a dog.
I had a cat.
I had multiple turtles. My favorite named Pistol Pete.
I had a tricycle that I jumped on when I was 5 and told my Dad that was running away to California. He chased me to the corner. (It would be 30 years before I made good on the promise. Long after Dad was gone…)
I was given an education.
I learned to read and to write and to love movies
I was given the tools to pursue a career that I enjoy.
I was loved… by a mother and a father who would sacrifice anything for us.


I honestly never grew up. And I don’t think I really did until Mom died on this day, February 13, 2018, at 10:40 AM . 

And even now maybe I’m not too grown up. Because I sure miss having Mom around to tell her my tales and have an audience to delight in my adventures… my biggest fan. 

I owe her and Dad everything. 

They were what Love is all about.

I will always recall every Valentine’s Day, Mom would act like she wasn’t expecting it, but she’d be looking out the kitchen window waiting for Dad to come home, and without fail he would pop in, that mischievous smile on his face, and give her the biggest box of candy I’d ever seen. And she would almost cry. 

She didn’t need much, my Mom. But she so appreciated being remembered. 

And so I am. 

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and all those that you love and who love you. 

Embrace it. And…Fly

It’s only the beginning.
