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.
Aza Comics releases The Keepers: Origins, the first digital novel about its new universe of female superheroes. “It’s very exciting,” says CEO, Jazmin Truesdale. “I really want to get more women into this genre. That’s why I created the book the way that I did.”
A Janet Jackson superhero? We all saw this coming. It’s no secret that Aza Comics’ CEO is a Janet Jackson STAN (just check out her instagram @jaztruesdale) but surprisingly creating a character with personality elements of her favorite entertainer was the last thing on her mind. “My mother gave me the idea,” Truesdale laughs. “Originally, Thema was inspired by my own mother and then one day I was telling her about the character and she says ‘right, so when you do the movie and Janet Jackson is fighting Kiran in a catsuit…’ that’s when it clicked for me.”
After 3 months of private auditions CEO, Jazmin Truesdale has signed illustrator Remero Colston. “I asked him to illustrate Kala and after one sketch I knew he was the guy,” says Truesdale. Remero specializes in illustrating women of color which just sealed the deal and was quickly signed to the company. “His talent is undeniable and we work together very well. We think a lot of like in terms of design so I’m very happy with this partnership.”
