Overview


Artist/writer Michael Golden is one of the most respected creators in the comic-book industry, the influence behind generations of artists. He visualizes the finished page completely in his head before he begins--as if those images had been there always, waiting to be freed. For Golden, "excess" defines a mind that can form every fold and nuance of a character without being overwhelmed by the frenzy. Like Michaelangelo creating a sculpture, Michael Golden chips away the excess to reveal the artwork within.
