Intelligent Collectors encouraged!

The fact that most indie Black Age publishers produce limited editions or small press runs insures the collector will likely have a rare item to treasure. Future speculative investors, auctions and collectors, once its time has come, will pay dividends to acquire items from this extended important era in this industry. Seeing "Black" as investment value or prestige is growing beyond the realm of that which comes from the mainstream. Most will be left saying...."I had those Black Age…

Culture, Creativity, & Commerce

Concept. Design. Production. All strong and at the ready. But where are the matching, ready for the challenge up for the opportunity legal, marketing, investment or distribution folks? Are they simply missing in action? Are they slow and deriv ative? Or do they only see value in drafting on the cast offs and one offs of the mainstream instead of embracing the…

Assault of the Mainstream

Now that the Mainstream has tried and failed to take the life force outta the growing indie-Black age movement with its "afro-futuristic" blockbuster along with its here today-gone tomorrow great token Hero of Harlem, who among us is really about winning at  this challenge and profiting from the opportunities it presents?

Their best efforts to corner and control the Black Age is my proof that we are actually winning in this war for minds and market shares.....inspite of…

Commerce

Being creative or innovative is the easy part. The challenge that tends to overwhelm folks of African descent is the one of commerce. Controlling and profiting from the financial, administrative and distribution of those amazing good & services tends to lag behind.  Leaving those with better expertise in these areas to dog it out, exploit and profit. Not to mention over-control.

This is why breaking the "Black On Black" boycott of legal honest Black owned operations in a…

The Enslavement of the "Black Art Movement"

During the heady days of the Black Cultural revolution in Chicago, there was a lot of art dealing with this hope and concept.  The mainstream galleries, Black art curators, historians and critics mostly stayed away from it.  Then once certain major players in this died in came the White parasites.  One a college professor the other a Jewish art dealer.  Both swooped in making deals to sell works, with the other building a entire career path for herself.  Now they are the accepted go-to…

Finding your favorite indie Black Age products?

At a time when the indie Black Age of Comics movement is now nation wide with indie conventions in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, New York and San Francisco, a question emerges.  Where do you find a dedicated spinning rack of indie produced / published Black Age products?  Hmmmm?  No where except Chicago at the Du Sable Museum and the urban internet cafe' Copy Cat.  In each of the other markets listed, no rack.  Not even where there is a Black owned comic book store.  The internet alone will not…

Who owns the Harlem Renaissance?

Who owns the rights to most of the material, books, and music, and  posters sold to school systems annually to expouse the values of the "Harlem Renaissance"? Are these publishers and distributors as Black as the content?  Do due royalties go to the hires or estates of the folks served up as creative or historic icons?  Or are these source of revenue leeching massive profits away from the community being educated?

This processing of "the New Negro" is still making money .....but for…

Dealing In Legal Black-Money

Black lives will matter when Blacks deal more in legal Black-Money practices!

According to the Fed, Blacks now spend over 1.5 Trillion dollars on goods and services beyond housing, meds  and food.

the new tax law-bill will ad about 1.5 Trillion to the national debt profile of the USA.  Dealing in legal Black-Money would make a tremendous positive improvement in the financial, social, and cultural situation of Black Americans along with Blacks…

Now that that stupid "Post Black " nonsense is over

Now that that stupid "Post Black " nonsense is over you are free to buy and cherish openly ONLI STUDIOS' Black Age indie products.  Along with other indie published products. From so many emerging kick ass indie operations.

Your best effort against the rising tide of Trumpism is to forever break the "Black on Black Boycott. This is when Blacks use any reason to not do legal commerce with other legal Blacks. 

Like the Blerds, too smart to really be "Black"........yet…

"BLACK AGE XII"

We at ONLI STUDIOS are glad to say that "BLACK AGE XII" was a success from every point of view. It opened doors, built bridges, and entertained all who were there. I have always maintained that the Black Age was the most independent movement in the game. Resistance is futile. We rock! We come! We conquer!



We have pioneered a complete genre and support system all in one. It is no mystery that the growth area of Sci-fi, graphic novels, and games will run right through the Black Age. I… Continue

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
