Today is the big day! The fourth (and final) issue of the sci-fi comedy comic book Unit 44 has hit the digital shelves today on ComiXology!
The best part? You can get this digital dreamboat for just $1.99 by clicking here!
In this installment readers will find out what happens when the alien invasion begins at Area 51 and Agent Hatch, along with rednecks Chester and Ike, must stave off the invaders long enough for Agent Gibson to recover the Freedahken crystal from madman Lance Albright. I mean, c’mon… it’s only the future of humanity at stake!
Huge thank yous go out to publisher Peter Simeti at Alterna Comics for supporting artist Eduardo Jimenez and I in this irreverent comic book journey. Maybe you should tune in just to see if Ed and I can stick the landing, eh?

So what’s next for Unit 44? Fantastic question!
We’ll have a collected edition hitting ComiXology around September of 2015 and we’re getting together the deets on when the physical collection will hit comic stores in trade paperback form. For all you anticipators out there, anticipate sometime in early 2016 for that.
Ed and I have introduced you to our silly world of aliens, government agents and rednecks and we both hope it won’t be the last you see of them! We have lots of ideas, scripts and even new concept art created and we hope to revisit the Unit 44 universe in the not too distant future. Want to help us expedite that process? Tell your comic-lovin’ friends about Unit 44 and encourage them to give us a download on ComiXology. The more support we get, the faster we can bring you a volume 2!
So you want print copies of Unit 44, huh?
Of course you do!
So here’s the deal, I spent my weekend at the Ocala Comic Con where I met tons of nice people who were kind of enough to exchange their hard-earned money for print editions of Unit 44. So many, in fact, that I have a whopping ZERO copies of them left.
Don’t fret — I will be ordering copies new print copies of #1-4 very soon and I anticipate having them in stock in my web store in early July. I’ll even be selling a bundle where you can get all the issues for one insanely low price. I’ll drop a post once they’re in my hands so you don’t miss out.
A big thanks to everyone keeping the print tradition alive. I’m excited to get the latest installments to your mailbox!

Thanks for reading Unit 44 and thanks for being awesome.
