Signed Chambers Trades!

Over the weekend I celebrated a birthday that was complimented by the delivery of a box of CHAMBERS trade paperbacks!

To celebrate the release of the collected edition, I decided to offer up a SUPER limited number of these trades to the public. If you’re interested in picking up a signed copy of the 100+ page trade paperback, this is the only way to do it! They’ll come directly to you, from me, with love. There are still a few copies remaining, and you can click here to grab one from my web store.

What’s Chambers all about?
Narcotics Officer Denise Chambers comes from a family of law enforcers. Now, someone is picking them off one by one, and she’ll have to figure out who’s taking an axe to her family tree before it’s too late.

The crime-fiction graphic novel collects Chambers issues #1-4, originally published 2013 by Arcana Studio. The book is “Rated R” and suggested for readers ages 17+.

Story & Letters: Wes Locher
Art: Kristian Rossi
Colors: Kefas Armando

Thanks for all of your support! Funds from these sales will go directly toward creating something new that I know you’ll dig.

10 reasons to pick up the Chambers TPB

As you may have heard, this Wednesday, March 26, my crime comic CHAMBERS will be released in trade paperback from Arcana Studio.

Chambers is the 4-issue crime-fiction miniseries that was released September through December of last year and this 100+ page collection puts all for issues under one cover. In addition to my words, the art was brought to life by the wonderful and professional Kristian Rossi with colors by Kefas Armando.

You can order the collection from your local comic shop or purchase it online. Heck, you can even pre-order it by clicking here and it will be at your home in a matter of days!

Since everyone on the internet likes a good list, I thought I’d list out 10 reasons why you should consider purchasing the book and thereby help support my writing career.

Let’s get going, shall we?

Chambers Trade Paperback Pre-Order: Last Call

We’re so close!

A week from today the trade paperback (print edition) of my crime-fiction comic CHAMBERS will be released!

There’s still time to pre-order from publisher Arcana Studio and the beautiful 100+ page collection will be shipped to your door upon release on March 26.

As this is my first trade collection that I’m not paying to print, so obviously I’m very excited. If you haven’t read the book, this will be the best way to do it. Along with artist Kristian Rossi and colorist Kefas Armando, I crafted a gut-wrenching tale of dirty cops and bloody revenge. If you’re a fan of noir or gritty stories based in the real world, then this comic will be right up your alley.

Do you like the movie Die Hard?
Trick question! Who doesn’t like Die Hard?
Loved that? You’ll dig this.

If digital is more your speed then you can currently pick up the individual issues or the collected edition from ComiXology for $1.99 or $5.99, respectively.

Click the image below to head to the order page. Just $19 will get you the book and will help support my writing career. Go ahead… encourage me. I dare you.

Interview: Vodka O’Clock Podcast

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.

Chambers – The Digital Collection – Now on sale!

ChambersTradeCoverWebAnother milestone reached!

Last month, the fourth and final issue of my crime-fiction miniseries CHAMBERS, with art by Kristian Rossi and colors by Kefas Armando, arrived digitally via ComiXology!

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.

Chambers – Digital Collected Edition – Coming Tomorrow!

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!

Wha?

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!

Chambers – Issue #4 – Now on sale!

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.

Chambers Pin-up Series #6

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.

Chambers is published through Arcana Studio and the first three issues are available digitally through ComiXology for $1.99 each. Just $6 gets you all caught up for the finale!

Chambers Pin-up Series #5

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!

Chambers is published through Arcana Studio and the first three issues are available digitally through ComiXology for $1.99 each.
