Posted on 4 February, 2022 at 15:40 Comments comments (78)

Predictions are alwyas a risk. But here we go! 

Since we, the indie Black Age of Comics genre & movement, have been underfunded for so long yet has done so much with so little .......we are now qualified to do the impossible with nothing!  In otherwords we will be doing major Games, Movies, and more in the next decade. 

Like the Sage Playa at the casino once advised: "Bet on Black!"

Progress matters!

The growing Black Age of Comics movement and genre has come a long way since its launch in 1993.

One does not have to be Black to participate. It is like food.  We all love cuisines that are not limited to our cultural backgrounds.

Motion in the Black Age!

Welcome to Spaceship Earth:

"Ownership is the highest form of appreciaiton!"

These are a few images of recent Acrylic paintings created my Prof. Turtel Onli.

"NOG Emerges": Acrylics on canvas.

Prof. Onli waving to his ever-cool art lovers at a recent exhibition in the Box Factory For the Arts in St. Joseph Michigan USA.

He is in front of two paintings. "Play Angels" and"The Alchemist"  Note the scale or size relationship to Onli.

NOTE: Interested collectors and fans are encouraged to use our Contact Tab options to request details such as cost & shipping or to state appreciation.


Before he founded the growing Black Age of Comics Onli was a celebrated and talented major market illustrator and Fine Artist.

His Rhythmistic style and concepts were explored in Fine and Commercial art applications in the mainstream along as in underground operations.

Onli is and was always near the pulse of fresh emergent ideas and practice while being true to the rigors and standards set up by time and traditions.

Prof. Onli currently teaches Art Appreciation and Studio Drawing at the downtown Chicago Harold Washington College.  Even now in these remote learning settings.
