To celebrate his first appearance at Wizard Chicago, artist Michael Golden will be unveiling a limited edition, signed and numbered print in cooperation with Harris Comics, at the premiere show this next weekend. Limited to only 100 copies, this exclusive print was previewed as a mini-poster to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund at the SDCC, but now you can upgrade to the BIG ‘UN at the big Chicago con.

And if that weren’t enough, Vanguard Productions, in anticipation for their hardcover art book “Excess: The Art of Michael Golden,” is shipping in a limited supply of the exclusive signed and numbered companion sample book, only while supplies last. This special publication features the same eye-popping Vampirella piece that graces the WCCC exclusive poster. A matched set, so to speak!

Known for his detail oriented work on “The ‘Nam,” “Micronauts,” “G.I. Joe,” “Dr. Strange, ” and “Batman” among much more, as well as being the co-creator of Rogue from the X-Men. Golden’s work can currently be seen on covers for Iron Man, Hero for Hire, and Classic Battlestar Gallactica. In fact, the new sketchbook, art book from Vanguard, and the exclusive Chicago poster are a major part of a wellspring of new material on the horizon for all those hungry Michael Golden art fans.

In edition to the limited Vampirella poster, Golden will be signing at several other venues throughout the show:

Friday: 1-2 –Heroic Fine Art
Saturday: 1-2–Wizard Booth
Saturday: 6:30-7:30–Comic Book Legal Defense Fund Charity Drawing
Sunday: 1-2–Hero Initiative Spidey 100 book signing

(Also look for several more times slotted at Heroic Fine Art. Not to mention that Michael will be signing his new “Modern Masters” book also available at the convention.)
