 Prof. Onli was featured at the amazing Lambiek store in Amsterdam. It is the oldest seller and distributor of BD, Graphic Novels and such in all of Europe. Onli went on to return to his creative roots in Paris.  Along the way Onli was laying the groundwork for the first international Black Age of Comics Convention.

It was in Paris back in 1977 in a conversation with the late great Moebius that Onli was inspired to grow ONLI STUDIOS from an illustration studio into a publishing operation with great growth potential and launching what is now the innovative Black Age genre!
 Bros Irie & Boris greeting Prof. Onli upon arrival.

Below...OOOOPS! A Bro-Fight broke out over the single ONLI STUDIOS Rhythmistic sweat shirt. In the end they decided it will be put on display so its fans and traffic can appreciate its connection to the Father of the Black Age. What a tribute to our growing movement.

 The World- Since the launch of the growing Black Age of Comics genre in 1993 the tension between the mainstream and this dream has resulted in many an amazing expression. None are more vital than the two historic "BLACK COMIX" mega sized anthology album books that feature the works , stories, backgrounds and information about the seriously gifted and dedicated sisters & brothers who make it so. there is even a listing of all of the indie annual events that facilitate this movement. 1993 officially put the "Black" in this hybrid of visual & literary art. Now your collections, libraries, living rooms, media centers, classes and companies can better get their Black on! "Indie today: Black Age Forever"! "Black Comix Returns" by Damian Duffy & John Jennings per Lion Forge/The Magnetic Collection.....via Amazon.
