Silver Surfer Saturday: Michael Golden Cosmic Powers #1

Michael Golden is one of my favorite comic book artists of all time.  I've bought and devoured two recent books on his artwork.  Since he's mostly done covers and pinups for the past ten years or so, finding Golden's work is a bit like finding a needle in a haystack.  I recently came upon this piece from a Silver Surfer mini-series in 1995, called Cosmic Powers.  Golden did this piece for the book.

Here it is in glorious black and white.  I love how Golden has positioned all-conquering Galactus, with Norrin Radd breaking down the barriers, trying to hold back his former herald from escaping.  I believe I saw this on Albert Moy's gallery on ComicArtFans.

Here is the color version.  The Marvel editors didn't use this as the cover for some reason.  But they did print it without any captions or logos.

Awesome.  This should have been a poster.  Nuff said.
