20th ANNIVERSARY OF THE BLACK AGE OF COMICS:
February 2013 will be the official 20th anniversary of the launch of the growing Black Age of Comics and the Black Age movement by Turtel Onli and ONLI STUDIOS.
February 26th 1993 Comic Buyers Guide featured a manifesto-styled article by Onli calling for growth of the independent Black Age of Comics as a movement, genre and force. That month saw the First Black Age of Comics Convention given at the Southside Community Art Center in the historic Bronzeville section of Chicago along with the launch of the Milestone Media line up which hit with Hardware #1. Prior to this convergence, behind the scenes ,at a number of conventions Onli, Craig Rex Perry, Dwayne McDuffie, Denys Cowan and Mike Davis explored various needs, options and creative aspects needed to be realized to establish a lasting presence in this industry by opening the path to new ideas, hot styles and fresh concepts.
"We love our fans!!!" This is a matter of creativity, culture, & commerce!
Now we are rapidly growing our indie Black Age market share through the efforts of four annual conventions, the annual Black Comic Book Day, a growing list of true great Black Age Art Stars, year long sales at Chicago's DuSable Museum's Trading Post Gift Shop, plus online store tags at Black AgeofComics.com "The Mshindo Montage", and the impact of the "Black Comix" book by Jennings & Duffy. Not to mention the coming "High Rise Projects" promotions.
We are looking to sell hundreds of thousands of products on a regular basis in markets on an international level. To Blackuns everywhere, of every race & culture, we sincerely thank you for your growing support, creativity, collecting and sharing our mission, passion, and products. "We love you!!!
Dr. Onli, M.A.A.T.
