The 100-page collected edition of Unit 44 arrived on ComiXology yesterday and is ready for consumption!
For those who didn’t read the issues as they came out, this is a great opportunity to drink it all down in a single sitting. You’ll actually save some money in the process as the collected edition is retailing for just $5.99!
With the release of volume 1 came plenty of new press and I’m thrilled to say that all of it was very nice and I can’t say enough thank you’s to the reviewers who took the time to not only read my email, but read the comic and took even more time to write about it, heaping praise on Ed Jimenez’s art and my silly words.

“Meanwhile, Wes Locher’s script is very strong. He knows exactly the sort of story he’s trying to tell and never shies away from it; just when you think things can’t get any crazier, he throws another curveball in to the proceedings to not only raise the stakes for the heroes, but keep the laughs flowing.” – ComicsVerse.com
“If you liked Men in Black, Venture Brothers, Invader Zim, The Awesomes, and government conspiracies gone astray, give Unit 44 a shot.” – ComicsOnline.com
“Once I picked up reading this collected volume, I couldn’t stop because I felt like I was reading a comic that spoke to my sense of humor and creativity.” – GeeksWithWives.com
“Locher happily plays with other tropes along the way, throwing not one but two mismatched-but-loyal sets of partners, little green men, mysterious glowing crystals, and turncoats into the mix. The result is an amusing tale that swerves about in unexpected directions and laughs with and at our world and its stories.” – FanboyNation.com
I also did a text interview with Sean at ComicsVerse.com while you can check out by clicking here. We talked about comic writing, comedy, Area 51 and creative collaboration. I appreciate him taking the time to chat. It was a ton of fun!
Plans are still in the works to release a physical edition of the book sometime in 2016, so I’m happy to report this isn’t the last the world will be hearing about my irreverent series about Area 51, conspiracies, rednecks and storage units.
Stay tuned for more!
