"NOG NU!!"

Posted on 4 March, 2011 at 7:47 Comments comments (157)
Indie vs Mainstream!

May 10th 2020:

NOG was first published in 1981 and will be featured next year, 2021 in a major Museum Exhibition of Comics and Art in Chicago. This is great because it speaks to the power of your love and support for this truely indie character.  NOG opened the door to real indie diversity when he was launched.  Now major options seem to be discovering NOG: "The Nubian of Greatness"!  We know it is the underground that moves the mainstream.  But we are into more!

Creativity, culture, connection, & commerce!

Please visit our E-Book Store before you go!

We luv how y'all just stayed with us!  We will earn even more as we grow and flow!

"NOG protects an entire planet!  Not just a hidden country or city.  An entire planet. He is the Nubian of Greatness…the Protector of the Pyramides of Planet NUBA."


NOG is the first character created and published by an indie-Black owned publisher in 1981. That being the innovative ONLI STUDIOS. The Black Age genre and movement was then launched.

"That's what we are talking about!"

"The Legend of the AZANIA" is told in the form of an illustrated Rhtyhmistic ode.  This exciting story is a great partner to NOG.. I weaves a glorious fable of the Return to the Ways of the Short Spear Clan and it ways of life, death and passion. Book one have just lowered its cover price to $4.00 to meet growing fan and consumer demand.
Hit the Xero Error image to link to Future Funk in Dubai's connection with this exciting production.
Collectors may note that "NOG: The Protector of the Pyramides" opened the door to the  Black Age movement when it was created by Turtel Onli and published by ONLI STUDIOS in 1981 during the Black and White publishing boom in the comics' industry.
Onli had lived & worked in Paris so he paid hommage to its incredible bande dessinee movement by using the French spelling for the word "pyramids" in NOG's title.
"NOG NU!!", ( available  ONLI STUDIOS Publisher,) is a fine reboot of the original book with cover art by Christian St. Pierre and interior color by Ashley A. Woods. 

The Black Panther & the Black Age????

Posted on 4 March, 2011 at 7:24 Comments comments (742)
When Jack Kirby created and produced the Black Panther for Marvel Comics in the mid-'60s. The Panther was to super-heroes what Jackie Robinson was to Major League baseball. While the Panther has continued to be a tremendous performer critics often question his connection, if any, to the growing independently driven Black Age movement.

Sort of like thinking of the Black Age movement as the old Negro Leagues in Baseball in that had they continued would now be the third major league. However most Black Age creators are on record with praise for the legacy and treatments presented with the Black Panther including this new hot animation written by the amazing Reggie Hudlin.

Educators appreciate how it weaves history in the same manner some of the best Black Age books do. Static, The Fringe, NOG: The Protector of the Pyramides and Numidian Force come to mind in terms of using a fantasy based character as the foundation for presenting some important yet overlooked and often disturbing aspects of African or Black history.

Jerry Craft & Marva Allen the owner of the Hue-Man Bookstore unvieling the rack of Black Age products.  The rack is provided via a special arrangement with Jery Craft & ONLI STUDIOS.

It makes it easier for customers to buy a wide range of Black Age books while linking the concepts shared and expressed in this growing genre.

Check out Lisa Herndon's piece on Black Comic Book Day at Hue Man!

And pay attention to Professor Bill Foster. He's so in harmony with his African ancestors, that every time he speaks, you can hear drums playing.
