Here is a great event coming in February 2017! If you are vendor of comic books, art, entertainment or a fan, check this out! ONYXCON | SANKOFA 2017!
Per the ONYXCON site:
ONYXCON: Celebrating Diversity with a focus on the impact, contributions, and presence of the African Diaspora in realms of imagination!
It is The largest convention in the Southeast celebrating the impact, contributions, and presence of the African Diaspora in *REALMS OF IMAGINATION through the popular arts.
In an alternate reality, a centuries old cabal is intent on global manipulation! We will witness a young, computer hacker stumble into an underworld of espionage! He will team with a splintered paramilitary unit and a social infiltrator; characters you have grown to know. Through life-threatening twists, this forced union will either be the beginning or end for these wayward heroes…
P.E. COMICS and AHR VISIONS present this re-imagined take on how these legendary hip-hop figures – CHUCK D, FLAVOR FLAV, PROFESSOR GRIFF, JAMES BOMB, POP DIESEL, BRO. MIKE and DJ LORD unite; in this all new, different way!
PUBLIC ENEMY: BLACK OPS!!! BRING THE NOISE!!!
This June, AHR Visions (AHRV) will begin launching its FIRST WAVE of flagship titles that will begin the run of its large and growing catalog of series.
THE 8, the signature “superhero” title from the studio, will begin this new line with its exciting and stunning first issue that will introduce the world to Dean Hannibal, The Metaphysician, P-Funk, Kilimanjaro, Spike, Shadow, Leapz, and Ṣalāḥ ad-Dīn. This different translation of the “superhero team” will add a level of flavor and style to the traditional concepts of the genre formula.
Visit the AHR Visions site ( www.ahrvisions.com ) to learn more about this and all the other titles coming out and in-development!
I’ve previously critiqued several of AHR Visions’ upcoming properties (read here: AHR Visions’ project reviews.) From the looks of the latest above pages; the art and storytelling continues to make The 8 (The Eight), an indie release to look out for!
