Interview: The Gravy Age Podcast

It was a busy last few weeks!

A few days after stopping by the Vodka O’Clock podcast I also appeared on The Gravy Age Podcast where I chatted with my pal Kris about my silly new comic book Hipsters Vs. Rednecks!

We also got into some discussion about the past, present and future of digital comics, how everyone on the internet is mad about something new each week and writing humor while not potentially offending readers.

I appreciate Kris taking time out of his busy schedule to chat with my about the comic and I hope you’ll give our conversation a listen.

Kris was also kind enough to review the one-shot comic where he said, “For a book I was worried couldn’t sustain itself based on the concept initially, my biggest and only real complaint is, it’s over too soon.”

Interview: Vodka O’Clock Podcast

I recently returned to the Vodka O’Clock podcast to chat with host Amber Love about my comic Hipsters Vs. Rednecks, which she was nice enough to read, enjoy and suggest we talk about. It was my third or fourth visit to the show and as always, a great time was had. Here’s hoping I don’t wear out my welcome!

As happens when I chat with Amber, the conversation took a turn as we explored other nerdery including Star Wars, comic book conventions, cats and the current state off the comic book industry.

Want to take me on your commute? You can listen to the interview online by clicking here, or you can subscribe to the Vodka O’Clock podcast on iTunes or Stitcher Radio. Amber also has a Patreon page to support the production and maintenance of her wonderful show that helps shine the spotlight on writers, artists and creators, so if you don’t mind tossing her a few dollars to keep the show going I know she’d appreciate it (and so would I).

Unit 44 Collected Edition is here!

The 100-page collected edition of Unit 44 arrived on ComiXology yesterday and is ready for consumption!

Unit44_CollectedEdition_Cover_thumbFor 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!

Grab it -> https://www.comixology.com/Unit-44/digital-comic/271168

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.

Check out what people are saying!

“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!

Interview: Vodka O’Clock Podcast 3

With my comedy comic book miniseries Unit 44 set to hit ComiXology this Wednesday, the press train has begun rattling down the tracks. My first stop on that crazy train? The Vodka O’Clock podcast to chat with my pal Amber Love, of course!

It was my third time on the show and what a homecoming it was.

We spent a fun Saturday morning chatting about the production process of Unit 44, talked about the plot, the characters, the art and many other nooks and crannies. Additionally we caught up on good comics, bad comics, television, breaking into the biz and lots of other fun stuff.

I really appreciate Amber being both a gracious host and someone who’s always been willing to talk about my projects and help get the word out. If you’ve never heard her podcast before, don’t just listen on my account! She’s spoken to many great indie comic writers, artists, letterers, publishers and more. Her archives are a who’s who of up-and-coming talent. If you can, consider supporting her on Patreon too and help keep the great content coming.

A week ago I made my triumphant return to the Vodka O’Clock podcast where I chatted with host Amber Love about my new heist graphic novel THE UNDOUBTABLES, published in July by Markosia Enterprises, and my upcoming sci-fi/comedy comic book UNIT 44, to be published soon by Alterna Comics.
