"NOG, The Protector of the Pyramides" was created and introduced as a comic strip in the Chicago Defender Newspaper of Chicago in 1979. 2009 will be the 30th anniversary of this landmark event. NOG went on to open the door to the Black Age of Comics movement. The rest is a future-history. The spelling of "pyramids" was challenged to the French spelling, "pyramides", because I had just returned to the USA after living and working in Paris. This was at the peak of the French Bande Dessinee boom that gave us incredible production values and the likes of Heavy Metal, Les Humanoids Associes, and Metal Hurlant.
Onli Studios went on the publish "NOG, The Protector of the Pyramides" during the great Black and White comic book indie production boom that gave us titles like TMNT. "NOG IS BACK!!! was published in 1994 and reprised recently in "Team BLANGA" at http://www.comixpress.com/. It even comes with a smokin' original sound track from Hardy Headz. ZOOOOOOM! Now production is under way to publish the wrap up graphic novel called , "NOG: The War For Planet NUBA!!!"
