Onli Studio's Origins of Blanga is a dense Kirby-esque ride with three Black Power superheroes through the tripped-out realms of New Afrika. Malcolm-10, Sustah Girl and Nog simultaneously fight complicated evil that rages throughout Da Jects and threatens the Rhythmic Zone. Malcolm-10's two episodes are frenzied-action urban warfare with some sci-fi flare as Malcolm takes on a bunch of Negro-Nazis in Da Jects. Sustah Girl's story, the funniest piece and also my favorite, is about her morphing from school teacher to amazonian warrior and grappling with an enraged Sick Sister's aching feet and entranced legion of man-Hypnots. The story of Nog is the one most based in the Rhythmic Zone, saturated with Nubian legend and poetic visuals. It's also the clearest explaination of the passageway through the realms of the Blanga universe and the interconnectedness of its heroes. Pulpy, yet personal Onli's Blanga manages the balancing act of getting the reader wrapped up in a lot of High Weirdness while still having something to say. -EF
