Graphic Novel Writer Wes Locher Talks "Unit 44" - Wes Locher's newly released sci-fi/comedy graphic novel is packed with laughs, with great visuals from illustrator Eduardo Jimenez.
UNIT 44 - This sci-fi/comedy romp tells the story of inept Area 51 employees who forget to pay the rent on the facility's off-site storage unit, leaving the secret contents to be sold at public auction. When an alien invasion threatens Earth, it's up to agents Hatch and Gibson to recover an item from the locker if they hope to stop the extraterrestrial threat.
Alterna Comic's newest graphic novel is hilarious; laughs on every page, if not every panel (awesome sight gags from Ed Jimenez). We highly recommend it. Writer and Unit 44 creator Wes Locher was a great guy to interview. He tells us how he got involved writing comic books and writing video games. He's got other projects in the works that sound awesome as well. He survived the eclipse, and if you did also, you should buy his graphic novel. You can get it on Amazon, Target, and if you go to your local comic store, your buddy behind the counter can still order it to get it into your hands. After you listen to this interview, you should probably just go to your comic shop. Oh, first give us a good review on iTunes (Apple Podcasts). Every 5-star review helps our show get noticed by more potential listeners. HELP US HELP YOU!
