Press Release:

Michael Golden Guest of Honor at Puerto Rico ComiCon This Weekend!

San Juan, PR–We are pleased to announce that Michael Golden has been named the Artist Guest of Honor for this weekend’s premiere comics events in San Juan, PR–The Puerto Rico ComiCon!

“I’m very honored to be invited to attend the show this year,” said Michael, “And meet my friends in Puerto Rico. I am also happy to see such a healthy community interested in sequential art here on the island, and meet fans that I haven’t met before. That is always gratifying.”

Touted for his groundbreaking storytelling and cover construction, Golden is known for his unique art style that a various times seems detailed and at other times seems to be amazingly streamlined–cutting away the excess and maintaining the true essentials of a piece. These techniques, coupled with that signature storytelling construction garner him a legion of devotees that number not only comic readers, but other artists as well.

Co-creator of the X-Men’s Rogue character, Golden’s work has appeared in the ‘Nam, Micronauts, G.I. Joe Yearbook, Dr. Strange, Nightwing, Detective, Heroes for Hire, Exiles, Demon’s Regret and Iron Man among much more. Golden, modestly never says which is his own personal favorite project. However, according to one art dealer, “Everybody in the business has been influenced by Golden’s Dr. Strange”. Michael himself admits that more artists that say he has an influence on their illustration career, do single out that influential project.|

Other milestones in Golden’s career include the co-creation of Bucky O’Hare, witch led to an animated series and toy line designed by Michael, as well as Spartan X with Editor/Writer Renee Witterstaeter, who is also attending the show this year!

At the show, Mr. Golden will be sketching, signing books, and offering his new art book: “Michael Golden: More Heroes and Villains,” to the fans at the PRCC!

The Puerto Rico Comic Con is THE premier entertainment event in Puerto Rico. A two day show with exhibitors and dealers of : Comics, Toys, Anime, Manga, Video games, Strategic and Card games, Movies, etc. This is the biggest comic convention in Puerto Rico, hands down!
