NOTE: February 2023 features our third annual virtual, bold, free-range, dynamic, educational, inter-global convention.
We will organically upload resources each week during this month.
Our ever-cool and totally hip partner in Sankofa this year, Punx of Rage, will be doing vivid interviews with selected intelligent Black Age Greats! Blog Talk Radio. com / Punx of Rage.
Feel free to visit them to learn from their trove of past unique cataloged interviews.
And yes....you do not have to be Black to participate. However, it helps to be cool, awesome, intelligent or positive.
BTW! Keep buying their fantastic books and other powerful products as they cannot do this amazing work without your type of real-world participation! Store Link
We overwhelmed this industry back in 1992 when Prof. Onli brilliantly wrote the fruitful article for "The Comics Buyers Guide" entitled "The Black Age of Comics", that laid out, in manifesto style, the scope and potential of the Black Age of Comics as a genre & powerful movement.
With support from Milestone Media it was proudly punctuated in 1993 when ONLI STUDIOS brazenly produced the first, open to all, fully functioning, Black Age convention in Chicago's historic South Side Community Art Center to forever expand this nexus of creativity, culture & commerce forever. The same month as the official launch of the almighty Milestone Media line of multicultural characters and products.
That is three decades of offering the best of the Black Age of Comics!
"How much Diversity, Color, or Alternative were in this industry before we launched our Bold Black Age Bomb in 1993?"
That mission has transformed this industry forever!
This indie Black Age of Comics, Chicago comic-con was started as a full service and totally welcoming comic-con in Chicago in 1993.
Our Graphitti Logo Tab was created by the talented team of Jennifer Witt and Alanni.
This was the very first event of its kind on planet Earth! But not the last.
Bold enuff to call itself BLACK!
Yet open enuff to reach out to all positive folks, be they Fluid, Blue, Red, Straight, Disabled, POC, Hippies, Normal, Black, FLKs, White, Asian, LatinX, Green, Yellow, Bronze, Odd, Gifted, or Martian. Fertile enuff to be welcome imitation but Rhythmistic enuff to never be duplicated!
Killa support was given to us at that time by the ever-awesome Milestone Media, and Herbert Nipson, The Executive Editor of The Johnson Publishing Company. Produced by ONLI STUDIOS LLC. Hosted in the Bronzeville District of Chicago at the historic National Treasure certified South Side Community Art Center.
Truth be Told!
Focusing on practical reflection, education, exposure, enrichment and creative production.
Still universally open as only Black can be. Open to all positive folks from Mars, back yonder, both sides of the tracks, down under, around the way and out back! Moving forward in our virtual platform & program during the month of February each year!
Still pushing the glory and story of all things indie in this hybrid nexus of narrative art, literature, creativity, culture, & commerce!
We appreciate all of the generous donations& purchases from those of you who generously give to our killa mission of positive Creativity, Culture, & Commerce!
We could not do it without your luv!
