A few weeks ago I was a guest on the Vodka O’Clock podcast where I chatted with host Amber Love about the character relationships of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS, the process of collaborating with a zillion different artists on my sci-fi webcomic INNOVATION and the trials and tribulations that came along with Kickstarting my upcoming sci-fi/comedy comic, UNIT 44.
The episode is now online, and if you’d like to spend an hour listening to me talk about the genesis of those projects, explain how I linked up with my collaborators or if you’d just like to relax to the dulcet tones of my voice while on your morning commute, you can download the podcast from iTunes or Stitcher radio.

A huge holiday thank you to anyone who has picked up either the individual issues of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS or grabbed the collected edition for $5.99 on ComiXology.
For those of you who long for the paper and ink method of comic consumption, I bring you great news — Midtown Comics in New York City is now taking pre-orders for the book for just $14!
You can grab it via their website by clicking here.
If you’d prefer to grab it from your local comic shop, the book is also in Previews. Head to your favorite retailer and give them order code JAN140863, but be sure to get your orders in by January!
The street date for the book is March 26, 2014. If you’re still waiting to read the book, the time is finally here! You’ll be getting over 100 pages of suspense, action and snark!
Another milestone reached!
It brought my story of crooked cops and family ties to a close and felt good to have a full limited series under my belt.
But wait — THERE’S MORE!
Today, the digital collected edition, which features all 4 issues for $5.99 is now available on ComiXology! If you didn’t read the issues as they were originally released (and yes, that hurts) get them all now and save some cash in the process.
In one fell swoop you can check out all 88 pages of the series and catch up on a fun, bloody and adrenaline-fueled tale of revenge and family. I sincerely hope that you’ll give it a read and I welcome any feedback that you care to share.
Next stop? The PRINT version of the collected edition will be here in March of 2014, published by Arcana Studio.
You may be excited for the holidays, but here’s some news that I hope will serve to skyrocket that enthusiasm…
The digital collected edition of my crime comic CHAMBERS will hit ComiXology tomorrow!
Okay, let me break it down… From September through November we launched four separate issues of Chambers digitally, but if you waited to pick up the book, tomorrow will be your chance to grab all four issues for one low price. You’ll also be treated to an as-of-yet unseen cover by series artist Kristian Rossi!
But, Wes… where’s the physical trade paperback that I can hold in my hands and read while I use the bathroom?
Don’t you worry, bathroom readers, that version will be along in March of 2014 and soon I’ll have a cool little code that you can take to your local comic shop, give to the guy or gal at the counter and say “Here… order me this!”
If you REALLY can’t wait until tomorrow for the digital collection to read the 88-page series, you can still grab each issue for just $1.99 on ComiXology.
Chambers is published by Arcana Studio.
While I have your attention, below you’ll find a pin-up of the comic’s main gal, Denise Chambers, drawn by one of my favorite collaborators, Daniel Pereira dos Santos. He and I have some fun stuff coming up, so keep an eye out!
Today is the day!
The final issue of my crime-fiction miniseries CHAMBERS, with art by Kristian Rossi and colors by Kefas Armando, has arrived digitally via ComiXology!
This marks the conclusion of the miniseries that took readers on a wild romp through a world of crooked cops, bad decisions, bloody revenge and apartment shower curtains (you’ll have to read the book to understand that last part). Readers witnessed just how far Denise Chambers would go to find answers once someone began taking an axe to her family tree.
In the final installment, Denise’s friendship with Bruce may be shattered, but he’s the only one left who can give her answers.
If you’re up for reading your comics digitally, just $8 will get you all four issues of the series, or stay tuned to grab the digital trade paperback, which will be released on December, 18.
Chambers is published by Arcana Studio.
It all ends tomorrow.
The final issue of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS, with Kristian Rossi and Kefas Armando, will hit ComiXology and bring the 4-issue miniseries to a close.
To commemorate this landmark in my career, I’ve been releasing Chambers-themed pin-ups every few days to show you the characters through other artist’s eyes. Previously, I’ve shared the work of Jasen Rosselot, Shaun Ramkissoon and Kelly Williams and today I reveal great piece from Eduardo Jimenez, my artistic collaborator on the upcoming sci-fi/comedy comic, UNIT 44, which we recently funded via Kickstarter.
I appreciate the roster of talented artists who contributed to building on the Chambers universe and I really hope you’ll give the book a read! Enjoy crime? Detectives? Shoot-outs? Hopelessness? This will be right up your alley.
The final countdown begins!
This Wednesday, the final issue of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS will hit ComiXology and bring the series to a close. To mark the event, I’ve been releasing Chambers-themed pin-ups every few days to show you the characters through other artist’s eyes. I’ve previous shared art from Jasen Rosselot and Shaun Ramkissoon and today brings a second piece from artist Kelly Williams.
Kelly is a wonderfully talented dude and his work has been published all over the place. Pick up a copy of Metaphase, which he drew for Alterna Comics, toss him some bucks to draw you a commission or pick up one of his wonderful prints that he sells via his webstore (I highly recommend the limited edition Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles print he made).
I appreciate the roster of talented artists who contributed to Chambers and I know you’ll see them all on high-profile gigs soon enough!
Next Wednesday, the final issue of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS will hit ComiXology and bring the series to a close. It’s exciting (because the trade paperback is coming) but also bittersweet because the project was a ton of fun and after more than a year of living with the characters, story and world, it will take it’s place in my portfolio and represent myself, Kristian Rossi and Kefas Armando as we continue making our way in this crazy industry.
In past posts, I showed off beautiful pin-up work from artists Kelly Williams, Jasen Rosselot and Shaun Ramkissoon, and with this installment, we’re tossing it back to Jasen Rosselot who provided a secondary pin-up of the main characters, Denise and Bruce.
I appreciate Jasen’s contributions, and I’m happy to say that he’s cooking up something new with me that you’ll be seeing soon.
Next week, the final issue of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS will hit comiXology and will mark the end of my first published miniseries.
In past posts I showed off beautiful pin-up work from artists Kelly Williams and Jasen Rosselot, and this week I bring you a piece from my pal, Shaun Ramkissoon. He put together a great pin-up that features Denise, Bruce and Adam, the main characters of Chambers. Since these pin-ups sadly, wouldn’t fit into the collected trade paperback, I still wanted to share his talent with you.
Shaun’s a great guy and I appreciate him taking the time to contribute to the project!
In just three short weeks, the final issue of my crime-fiction comic book CHAMBERS will hit comiXology and will mark the end of my first published miniseries.
Not long after the story wraps up, a trade paperback collecting all four issues will be released (and will look great on your bookshelf). I sent the publisher a handful of pin-up art from artists who interpreted the main characters of the story in their own way, but due to page count restrictions, a most of them ended up on the cutting room floor. Not wanting contributing artist’s talent to go unseen, I’m posting them here for everyone to enjoy.
Last week I showed off a beautiful pin-up from Kelly Williams, and this week I bring you a piece from Jasen Rosselot. This artist is also contributing to the second issue of my upcoming project Innovation and I’m excited to see what he brings to the table. Scroll down to see Jasen’s interpretations of characters Bruce and Denise.
