The Undoubtables review round-up #1

It’s been a few months since The Undoubtables, my action/heist comic with Emre Ozdamarlar, hit print and roughly 30 days since it went live digitally and a steady stream of reviews are starting to flow in.

I wanted to take a moment to share them with you in case you were still on the fence about purchasing the 96-page comic!

“…Locher has something really neat on his hands. Undoubtedly, this is one you should pay attention to.”
Cody “The Thorverine” Ferrell @ Comic Book Therapy | Read full review

“If you’re looking for a fast-paced, intriguing crime comic, than look no further than The Undoubtables. Wes Locher keeps the pedal buried and doesn’t let up until you flip that last page.”

“If you are a fan of crime thrillers with an interesting cast of unique characters, look no further than this 96-page, action packed graphic novel.”
–  Daniel Celabu @ FA Comics | Read full review

“Billed as “Ocean’s Elven” meets “Payback” the Undoubtables is an interesting story of crime and revenge.”
– Chuck Suffel @ What’cha Reading? | Read full review

Don’t forget that we have a FREE 7-page preview of the graphic novel that you can check out right here. If you like what you see, do me a solid and pick up the book from Amazon or digitally from ComiXology, for your Kindle, on your Nook, and if you look hard enough, I’m sure there’s a website that will inject the comic directly into your brain. Technology is amazing.

Copies of the trade paperback arrived at my door a few days ago! I’ll be selling them at the 2014 Panama City Creative Con this weekend and they’ll hit my web store shortly thereafter. Publisher Markosia Enterprises did a beautiful job on these!

Innovation Update #15

Sometimes you have to take a step back to see what works and what doesn’t. When I dove into my sci-fi webcomic INNOVATION (which you can read for absolutely free by clicking here), I didn’t know if we’d ever get more than five pages completed, and here we are, six months later boasting two issues and 41 total pages with 21 more en route to your eyes soon.

To date, the eight available shorts fit together to tell the story of what happens when the mysterious R.D.S.L. Corporation decides to push the boundaries of technology into questionable areas. While I was making the rounds last year, handing out copies of the first issue at the New York Comic Con, there was one question that came up that made me think a bit.

People asked me, “Why isn’t there any art on the cover?”

My first instinct was to run away and pout at the criticism, but as the question popped up again the short answer became, “Because I want people to be intrigued by the cover and want to open the book.”

As great as it sounded, I succumbed to the true marketing facts that a person likely isn’t going to take the time to reach down, pick up a comic and thumb through it, so just like in everything else, the first impression was crucial.

Thinking forward to some upcoming conventions where I’ll be sitting at a table and trying to sell my wares, it made me realize that the covers did need a little more somethin’ somethin’ to draw potential readers in, so I went back to the drawing board and decided to re-brand the series with a new look and new attitude.

Actually, the attitude didn’t really change, but you know what I mean.

You can check out the new Innovation covers below and I’ll soon reveal the cover and contributing artists for our third issue. Personally, if I saw these covers on a convention table, I’d snatch them up. Hopefully comic fans feel the same way. We’ll find out soon, I suppose!

Innovation Update #14

If you’ve been following along with my sci-fi webcomic project INNOVATION, which you can read for absolutely free by clicking here, I sincerely hope that you’re enjoying what myself and the team of amazing artists are doing.
