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