Description

A True Grail Piece for this Life Long Micronauts and Michael Golden Fan! I have been on the Look Out for the Right Vintage Golden Micronauts piece for Years now! The pieces I was looking for were either Unavailable, Well Hidden in Collections or Priced out of my Range! Then I came across This piece recently! Again it was unavailable but I made my intentions known that if the day ever came to part with it I would be Very Interested! It was a piece I was unfamiliar with growing up. It was in a Black and White Pin Up Fanzine Mediascene published by Jim Steranko back in the late '70's. It had everything I was looking for: The Main Heroes from the Micronauts, Vintage Art from Golden that I had grown up drooling over and it was Cover Quality!!! The story behind this piece is the original owner met Golden at a NY con back around 1982 and purchased this as the black and white original art it was. He commissioned Golden to color the original as well and after losing contact with him, received it back Beautifully hand colored about a year later according to the previous owner. Golden even signed the piece with his signature "G" in color! So this piece is Pure Golden!!!
I never thought the day would ever come when the owner would part with it, but right before Christmas I got the call and put quite a few pieces up for sale to purchase this one, and it was worth it all!
My hunger for a Golden Micronauts cover has been satiated for the time being. I find this piece to be even nicer then most of the covers as it features the main heroes in a Battle Pose! I'm One Thrilled Nostalgic Collector!!!

Full-team, cover-quality, vintage, as well as a hyper-rare hand-colored piece by Golden? Beyond awesome.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! There is so much to love about this piece! I love the rendering on Marionette's Farrah-like hair do. The coloring adds so much more to this piece as well. Take a close look at the color detail he added to the Homeworld planets, Simply Amazing!!!

Thanks! Some of the Best pieces of Art are the ones we never knew existed like this one! I never had this fanzine so I never saw the image. But I was blown Away finding it existed as it had everything I could want! Having it colored by Golden just added to the piece, making it so much nicer then the published piece! Sometimes we come across something that fits us so well that you feel it was meant to happen.

Rich.....this piece is blowing my mind......it took me a second wondering if Michael had done a new commission in his 79' style, because I had NEVER seen this piece before, and it honestly has to be one of the most representative examples of his Micronauts ever. It just has everything in it a fan of the series and Michaels art could ever hope for. I am beyond envious, but i'm so grateful that you have it here for us all to enjoy. I've been thinking of ideas for a classic Micronauts piece of my own to draw and this definitely is inspiring me.

Ahhhh, the sweet taste of a successful acquisition, Rich. I know that we have corresponded much over the last year on this original owner collection. Since several other folks now know of this owner's collection, it is great to see some of his previously-owned originals show up on CAF. While I am also not a Golden collector, this artwork did catch my eye when I was at the owner's store. I am happy that I helped to contribute funds to you for this great purchase. Enjoy this piece for many years to come.
