The Kickstarter Report: ‘Unit 44’

What if Area 51, the super-secret military base housing the world’s most confidential artifacts, suddenly became not so secret?  In the upcoming comic book series Unit 44, that is the unfortunate reality for Area 51 employees Agent Gibson and Agent Hatch, who forgot to pay the rent on the facility’s off-site storage unit, causing the super-secret contents to be sold at public auction. When an alien invasion threatens the safety of planet Earth, Gibson and Hatch must recover an item from the locker if they hope to stop the extraterrestrial threat.  Series creator Wes Locher recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to assist in turning the story into a four-issue miniseries and collected trade paperback.  If you are a fan of Storage Wars, extraterrestrials, and everything in between, now is your chance to lend a hand to an indie creator in making this great idea into a reality.

The hilarious, action-packed story of Unit 44 will be complemented by the colorful art of Eduardo Jimenez, a freelance digital artist residing in Costa Rica who specializes in comic art and children’s book illustrations.

To learn more about the comic book series and the series’ creator, fans can watch a great video interview below.

Be sure to visit the Unit 44 Kickstarter page, and don’t forget to check out the backer rewards, which include physical copies of the single issues and trade paperback, a Kickstarter special edition hardcover, a Unit 44 lunchbox, and your very own comic book! The campaign closes on Sunday, August 25th, so be sure to donate soon!
