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,

  1. Is this in B&W or color? I love to see the B&W work, as some details get lost in color.

  2. I agree that a second pair of eyes is absolutely essential to avoid rejections. Through WordsRU.com I was able to get top class editing and proofreading, manuscript critique. They also write excellent author profiles and book synopsis, so pretty much the entire package.

  3. Learning to proofread your work yourself is a a must-have skill. But, it always helps to have a second pair of eyes review your work to make sure you haven't missed embarassing typos, or grammatical and syntactical errors. I'd suggest WordsRU.com for this. It also saves you a lot of time to have your work formatted according to the right style. Saves you a lot of time and allows you to focus on your work.
