Storage Wars meets Men In Black

Storage Wars Comic

Writer Wes Locher and artist Eduardo Jimenez combined ingenuity began a Kickstarter campaign to fund their sci-fi/comedy comic book series Unit 44, which explorers what happens when inept Area 51 employees who forget to pay rent on the facility’s off-site self-storage unit, and the super-secret contents are sold at public auction.


First issue features Storage Wars auctioneer Dan Dotson.


I contacted the writer Wes Locher to give me a little bit more information about the comic book series Unit 44.

Wes: The first issue was funded last year but the team is back to finish out the series, which will be published this fall by Alterna Comics. The inaugural issue, described as Storage Wars meets Men In Black, featured Dan Dotson of American Auctioneers and Storage Wars as a character.

Here's a little preview:


The creators are seeking $2,400 to fund the remaining issues and have already achieved 63% of their goal. We predict this campaign will have a successful run.

If you are interested in contributing to the campaign, please take a look a their Kickstarter Page. Feel free to preview the first seven pages of UNIT 44 Issue #1.

Storage Wars Dave Hester Settles Lawsuit Against A&E

Dave Hester

Dave Hester settled out of court with A&E Network on his wrongful termination lawsuit.

Ongoing war waged by ‘Yuup’ miser when Original Productions fired Hester from appearing in the fourth season of Storage Wars.

No way would ‘The Mogul’ bow out peacefully when he was axed off the show without a good long whine in which he cried – Nuuup!

Dave Hester then filed a lawsuit against A&E and Original Productions stating,

“The truth is that (producers) regularly salt or plant the storage lockers that are the subject of the auctions portrayed on the series with valuable or unusual items to create drama and suspense for the show.”

That if true would be in direct violation of the Communications Act of 1934.

But it was not true according to the ruling of Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Johnson when he threw out the claim of Unfair Business Practices back in March of 2013.

To then rub salt to the wound of losing the first round in this lawsuit; Hester was then ordered to pay out $122,692 for A&E’s legal fees for the anti-SLAPP motion he filed.

Anti-Slapp SLAPP stands for Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation. It’s under the first amendment act of freedom of speech. SLAPP can be a civil complaint or counterclaim filed against individuals or organizations.

But Dave Hester lost the first round of the lawsuit to A&E.

Judge however ruled that Hester could continue on with his wrongful termination lawsuit – just word it better and file again, which Dave did. Now for Round 2 of the ongoing lawsuit.

After a very long, drawn out, ordeal - Original Productions and Dave Hester finally settled for an undisclosed amount.

The lawsuit war is over.

Season 6 of Storage Wars will feature the return of the infamous Dave Hester. A&E will premier the new season with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 9PM and 9:30PM ET/PT.

A new War has just begun.

Latest Storage Wars Stars News

Storage Wars Stars

A&E’s original Storage Wars returns June 3rd with back-to-back episodes 9:00-9:30 p.m. Central Time.

Fans want to know – What’s the latest news on the stars of the show? I’ll just toss out some highlights from the past couple of months.

Dan and Laura Dotson auctioned storage units, vaults, and worked charity events week in and week out. Nothing new there as they are one of the hardest working couples on reality TV.


Dotsons had a dog fence built around their property. Need to keep away laura-dotson-plants-veggiesbears and mountainrattlesnake lions, oh my. Take a look at that fantastic view!

Dan said, "Time to get up, drink coffee, hook up auction trailer, kill a rattler & make it to the auction." Say it with me, ew...

Laura, quite the green thumb, planted tomatoes. She also picked fruit. Yes, she’s always smiling, even off camera.

Oh, and their son went to prom – aw.

Jarrod and Brandi were showcased in an A&E spinoff special, Married to the Job.

jarrod-brandi-familyIf you missed the special, here's the summary:

  1. Jarrod celebrated his birthday for an entire month.
  2. Brandi was perturbed the entire month.
  3. Cameron struggled with algebra.
  4. Payton cleaned toilets.

You had to be there. Their Orange County Now and Then thrift store celebrated their fourth year "still in business." Knock on wood.

Jarrod and Brandi also attended the 2014  Billboard Awards.


Darrell suffered a slight injury which stalled his fitness training for a short period of time. Meanwhile, he and his son Brandon stocked the new corporate office.


Rene and Casey attended a Journey's concert.


I bet you’re thinking, “Huh?” Yeah, they don’t seem the rock-n-roll type. Rene.. well, he and Darrell kept true to their rivalry and thwacked each other on Twitter. I won’t even get into who said what to whom.


I lied. I had to show you a little of what you missed if you don't follow Rene and Darrell on Twitter.

Ivy's proclamation: I'm not just the King of Palmdale. I'm the King of Curly Fries... I Rule.

ivy-calvin-curly-friesThat's all the news on the former MMA fighter. He doesn't post much on Twitter.

Time for a special announcement outside of the original cast:

jenny-grumbles-mom-to-beJenny Grumbles from Storage Wars: Texas is PREGNANT! As of May 24th she’s 20 weeks with her first baby. She’s a new wife, new homeowner, and now about to become a new MOM!

Congrats, Jenny!
