The long awaited "Michael Golden: Heroes & Villains Sketchbook" from award-winning creator and artist Michael Golden will indeed be debuting at this year's San Diego Comic Con! AND Golden will be on hand at the West Coast show to sign 'em all!

The new sketchbook features an array of Golden pencils, preliminaries and finished compositions, serving as a must have package for collectors of his trendsetting heroic pieces, while also sneaking in some of his favorite machinery-heavy works, army characters, action shots, and yes, of course, a few villains to boot.

Known as one of the masters of sequential art storytelling, Golden is the co-creator of X-Men's Rogue character, as well as "Spartan X"--due out in a trade next year, and "Bucky O'Hare"--which has just been optioned for a movie via Neal Adam's Continuity Studios.

A plethera of retrospectives on Golden have recently hit the shelves with the "Modern Masters: Michael Golden" tradepaperback; the "Modern Masters In the Studio with Michael Golden" DVD; the upcoming "Creator Chronicles: Michael Golden" DVD and tutorial from Woodcrest Productions; and the best-selling "Excess: The Art of Michael Golden" from Vanguard Productions, which has sold out! The Second printing, in fact, will debut at SDCC as well at the Vanguard Booth, featuring a new eye-popping, sexy Vampirella cover!

To commemorate all of this activity, Golden will be on the TwoMorrows panel Thursday, and will also be signing at the Vanguard booth on Sunday. Check your SDCC schedule, the NFR booth #4601, or the Vanguard Booth for times and details.

So get in on the excitement! The new sketchbook, "Heroes & Villains," will be signed by the popular creator while supplies last. Hardcover, Color, 48 pages, introduction by Michael Eury and bio text by Renee Witterstaetter, the book is limited to 1,000 copies. It's also available in two versions: Signed and Numbered for $40; Or the Sketch Version for $100.

Golden will be located at the Naked Fat Rave booth, #4601, to sign his new sketchbook as well as the NFR 2008 Group Portfolio ($65). He will be appearing all days fo the convention along with other stellar comic talents Matt Wagner, Dave Johnson, Art Adams, Joyce Chin, Renee Witterstaetter, J. Scott Campbell, Jim Lee (at the annex), Bruce Timm, Tim Sale, and Amanda Conner, making NFR a true must-go-to SDCC destination!
