Azure Press was founded in 1994 by Tom Chillemi, and incorporated in 1995. At the time, Chillemi was 17 years old and determined to break into the comic book industry. To that end, he recruited a number of local creative talents for the production of Azure’s first project, The Acolyte Chronicles, in the summer of 1995.
After a long hiatus, Azure Press made its return in the summer of 2010 when it partnered with Endlight Entertainment to produce a series based on the cult-favorite Ninjas vs movies. Ninjas vs Zombies #1 debuted at the Baltimore Comic-Con in 2010, with worldwide distribution beginning in March 2011.
With the first story arc of Ninjas vs Zombies completed, Azure Press is looking ahead to projects such as the completely original Ninjas vs Werewolves, a relaunched and renewed Acolyte Chronicles, and the sci-fi epic Storm Rider.
