Turtel, thanks for an incredible event today. I took time to talk to almost every artist present to discuss their role in the Black Age and it was truly enlightening.

Folks should really take time to investigate the broad range of artistic styles and varying plots and ideas shared in these graphic novels. These works are far from just your typical super-hero themes.
Since I put my money where my mouth is, I bought a bag full of Black Age books and in reading through I have found that some of them may truly hold answers to some of society's greatest ills. This is not an exaggeration! Check it out, people. The next time there's a Black Age event, do yourself a favor and come- but bring 10 with you.
