Music legend and Icon Janet Jackson turns 50 today and Aza is celebrating the best way that it knows how. “I would say that Janet has always inspired me creatively,” says Illustrator of Aza’s first book, The Keepers: Orgins, Remero Colston. “She’s not afraid to change it up for the sake of her craft and that is a quality I admire.” It was Miss Jackson’s catsuits that helped him create the style of Thema, Aza Comics’ beloved superhero Queen.
Using inspiration from her latest music video ‘Dammn Baby”, Colston created a tribute piece to honor the legendary performer and her youngest dancers, the #JBabies (Kyndall Harris and Taylor Hatala).
“It’s not necessarily about inclusivity, it’s about reality,” says Aza CEO, Jazmin Truesdale about the release of Aza’s first lesbian superhero couple. “I care about making the truest fiction. The world is colorful and diverse. I just want to show that in the entertainment that I create.”
You heard correctly. Bring Aza to your school.
Aza Entertainment has developed a program that will give back to public schools and charitable organizations. “Education is the foundation of our future. It doesn’t make any sense that there are schools struggling due to lack of funding,” says CEO and founder of Aza Entertainment, Jazmin Truesdale.
