It'sno wonder that Golden has been one of the most influential creatorsaround for the last several decades:
"....unless you can actuallydraw yourself, it is very difficult to understand the exactmind-blowing impossibility of what he does," said writer/artist LarryHama, of Golden's work.
"Michael blithely puts down on paperexactly what he sees in his head. It's like he's got a cosmic opaqueprojector that shoots a laser beam from his brain through the kundalinieye in his forehead straight down onto the drawing surface where all hehas to do is trace it," continues Hama. "The result is hard-edged andfully realized in every way. No fuzzy impressions here. No using theside of the pencil. No squiggly space-filling lines blocked in onautomatic pilot. To paraphrase Neal Adams (who was referring to Golden), there is not a single millimeter of line on the page that is notdirected by conscious thought."
