This movement is the cure for all the folks out there who love Thai, Italian, Chinese, Japanese or Mexican for but think when they see the term "BLACK" that is is not about them too. Or that to say "Black" is not to be of value, potential and creative intelligence.  You are not from Thailand, Italy, China, Japanese or Mexico….but you love it.  When we say "Black"……do you love it?  We do!

The Black Age of Comics Movement is to the world of graphic novels, animation and comics what those brands are to food.

Come get your Black On!!!!!

Thank you for noticing that when others went fashionably, "Post-Black" and politely, "lack Black" or even politically, "I never refer to my Black self as Black" we stayed inclusive, open, creative, and welcoming to all types of positive folks from all stages, pages, rages and ages. We kept on growing; being as Black as we wanted to be!  And we still luv them all too! Black, White, Brown, Red, Tan, Olive, Yellow, Time- Warped or Martian...... BTW...we even dig on a lil' Pluto too!!

Welcome to the growing Black Age of Comics Movement! 

The most independent and open genre in this industry.
