Michael Golden has been mentioned as a guest at upcoming Cons in this Blog several times... Which is great for fans of his works that want to meet him in person! His next stop is in Orlando, Florida at the 2009 FX Show, which is billed as "The Coolest Show on Earth"!
The 'Show' may not be taking place under a 'Big Top', indeed it is inside at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, but as they say they sure are bringing out all 'Three Rings' of excitement this year at this Show!
How is that you say? Well the FX Show has an expanded guest list, plus more celebrities, and the announcement of artist/creator Michael Golden as the "Special Guest of Honor"!
In addition to commemorate Michael's return to Florida, the FX Show is offering a limited Michael Golden G.I. JOE art print poster for sale at the convention itself! The 11" X 22" posters will be offered, at $15 each, and Michael will be on hand there to sign them all individually for each collector. However, be there early as that poster is limited to only 200 numbered prints!
For those of you that haven't read about Michael Golden here in my Blog before, Michael has "long been touted as one of the best storytellers in comics, influencing countless artists via his work on "The 'Nam," "Micronauts," "G.I. Joe Yearbook," "Batman," and "Dr. Strange, " among much more! In addition, Golden is the co-creator of Rogue from the X-Men, "Bucky O'Hare," and "Spartan X," as well as other popular properties".
So what has had he done lately? Well... "His recent work can be seen in the last few years with covers on "Nightwing," "Iron Man," "Heroes for Hire," "Exiles," "Demon's Regret" and just this month on "Uncanny X-Men." In addition, Vanguard Productions recently released the top selling art retrospective "Excess: The Art of Michael Golden," which sold out and went into a second printing."!
BTW, for those of you that can't make this Show but are planning to attend the upcoming San Diego Comic Con Interntional (SDCC) in July 2009: "This year will see the release of Michael's new sketchbook, "Dangerous Curves," from Eva Ink Publishing. A perfect match for last years sketchbook, "Heroes and Villains." The new volume is scheduled for debut at the San Diego Comic Con".
So you are tempted to stop in at the FX Show this upcoming weekend, but need something else to make you come for sure?
Well, other guests scheduled to join Michael Golden at the Orlando Convention Center include: Leonard Nimoy, Juliet Landau, Jonathan Frakes, Mark Texeira, Matt Fraction, Arthur Suydam, Frank Brunner, Yaya Han, Eva Hopkins, Dan Brereton, Billy Tucci, Chuck Dixon, Greg Horn, Dave Johnson, Doug Murray, Dave Nester, Phil Noto, Michael Oeming, Dan Panosian, Steve Rude, Mark Goddard, James Kyson Lee, Lindsay Wagner, Renee Witterstaetter, John Beatty, Tony Bedard, Jeremy Haun, Kathryn Immonen, Andy Kuhn, Laura Martin, Jose Marzan Jr, Pat Broderick, Marc Hammond, Amanda Stevens, and many more!
