Wes Locher kapows his way into world of comics

I think the moral of this story is, never forget where you came from.

My hometown paper, The Daily Record, based in Wooster, Ohio, has been good to me. Even though I’ve lived in Florida for 11 years, they still like to update the community from time to time on my various ventures. Several years ago they ran a great feature when I published my humor book, Musings on Minutiae, and last month was no different.

My wife and I were visiting family in the area and one morning I was shepherded into the newspaper offices for a conversation with editor Lydia Gehring, who got completely schooled on the world of comic books and still managed to condense it into an easy to digest package for local readers.

I’m grateful for the support of the community, and that they see what I’m doing as fun, exciting and newsworthy. Chances are I’m the first person from my hometown to work in the comic book business, so I can only hope it will show local kids what’s possible when you have a combination of motivation, perseverance and patience.


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.

IndieComicsTracker.com Podcast

Over the weekend, I was a guest on the IndieComicsTracker.com Podcast where I spoke with host Marcel Lewin about my webcomic, INNOVATION (click here to read it for free).

He had come across the Innovation website and was curious to learn more about the process of putting together a webcomic, working with artists and the exercise in project management that comes along with such a project.

It’s a quick 15 minute conversation, but hopefully you’ll learn something!

I appreciate Marcel having me on the show!


I recently sat down with John Helmer from comicbookinterviews.com to talk about my short story, London Shadow, that was published in MegaBook volume 1 from CE Publishing.

As a writer, “three page story,” is about the scariest thing you can hear from an artist.
