Craig Rex Perry worked with ONLI STUDIOS to produce the first Black Age of Comics Convention in 1993 in Chicago att he SSCAC. The two characters on the promo of that event are his. To the left & right of Onli's Malcolm-10. "No Sell Out" & "Too Black, Too Strong". Perry and Onli were major market illustrators based in Chicago at that time with tenures "Ebony Jr.", and have both been crucial in growing the quality and impact of this genre.

"Living' In Da Black Age"
Most public school educators in Chicago have a $100.00 dollar, free, reimbursable budget to buy items and materials to use in the classroom per teaching and reaching students and the school's community.

The Trading Post Gift Shop of the DuSable Museum of African American History is a great place to use that fund to extend the teaching and learning process dealing with the range of the Black and African experience.

ONLI STUDIOS' Graphic Novels are great for reluctant readers, energetic readers, and students that love to see how Black and African culture can be the source material for creative expression and scientific explorations.

From ONLI STUDIOS: NOG is the Protector of all of Planet NUBA. NOG is the interplanetary intergalactic cosmic character that opened the door to the Black Age movement when it was first published in 1981 by ONLI STUDIOS.

The Schomburg Announces the 2017 Black Comic Book Festival in January 2017. 


The BIG TWO publishers are wisely hiring many more diverse creatives along with pushing a broader range of characters. Why?  Because of the push and power of the intelligent indie Black Age genre since it was launched in 1993 by Prof. Onli. 



The BLACK AGE of COMICS is the expansive future of this industry.  Why be loyal to characters created in  the 1940s and 1960s?  Your music and food choices are not that lame. Characters that your grandparents grew up on?  Really?
