After completing our very successful 23rd edition annual indie event, we at ONLI STUDIOS have decided that magic number 25 will be our last.

We offer our serious thanks and appreciation to all of the great folks who participated in this amazing evolution and revolution! It could not have happened without each and every single one of them.


 Since 1993 we have promoted, produced and documented annual editions of the worl'sd first indie comic convention that took on the challenge to expand this industry to celebrate the folks and concepts derived form the Black, African, Indie, Alternative and Urban experience. 



 Our overwhelming success impact and are manifested in how much Color and real diversity has emerged in this industry since those repressive days of 1993.  Along with emergent conventions such as ECBACC, Onyx Con, Motor City Black Age, Waconda Con, MECCA Con or Pocket Con we see fans of all backgrounds abound and rejoice.


Ours is a living legacy of a celebration of creativity, culture, commerce and collection!



We can expect Prof. Onli, the innovative founder of this genre to explode in his dynamic Rhythmistic practice of fine and narrative visual art.  Exhibitions, lectures and of course all of his ever cool and supper hot Rhythmistic Graphic Novels.
