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.

Wacky. Witty. Whimsical.

  8.  An escalator can never break — it can only become stairs.
  9.  Could it be fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

  11.  Some people are like Slinkies ... not really good for anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.

  21.  Why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?
  22. Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do...write to these men? Why don't they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen could look for them while they delivered the mail?
  23. Why does mineral water that 'has trickled through mountains for centuries have a 'use by' date?
  24. Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?
  25. Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?

  27. What if there were no hypothetical questions?
  28. Where are the other three quarters of a Quarter Horse?
  29. Why do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
  30.  Since bread is square, why is sandwich meat round?

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!

Storage Wars New York: Candy Olsen Stays in Shape Dancing

Candy Olsen

You’re not a gym person.

But you NEED to EXERCISE to get into SHAPE.

You may also live in an area where the climate isn’t conducive to a daily 30-minute walk or jog.

Or,  you may not be keen on the idea of running around the neighborhood in spandex.

There’s an alternative to the gym to get fit.


It’s a great way for people of all ages and physical abilities to get fit and stay in shape.

Plus side is that dancing doesn’t feel like a work-out because you’re having fun.

Dancing is a total body workout that uses all of the major muscle groups and provides heart-health benefits.

You will tone your muscles, burn body fat, and increase balance and coordination.

Candy Olsen, one of the stars of Storage Wars: New York, says:

I always tell people, take dance class!

There are a variety of dances classes to choose from depending upon the area in which you live.

  • Bar Method
  • Ballet
  • Belly Dancing
  • Bollywood
  • Hip Hop
  • Jazz
  • Line Dance
  • Modern
  • Salsa
  • Swing
  • Tango
  • Tap

That’s just to name a few. You will find dance classes for children, beginners, and for senior citizens.

Why does Candy Olsen highly recommend dance class?

I love it. I feel better, more like myself when I'm in shape and in control of my body. Dance class makes me feel like I can do anything and do anything someone else wants me to do. To me it makes sense stay in shape keep. My dance teacher growing up told me dance class was like putting money in the bank, that even the bad days were an investment to a slow steady movement forward.”

Remember, in a beginner’s class no one has a clue to what they are doing. Everyone's awkward, so you can relax.

If you make dance part of your regular routine, you will see how your body builds stamina and endurance, and how your muscles will increase in the ability to work hard for longer periods of time without fatigue.

Oh, and did I forget to mention that dancing is SEXY?


What's your favorite type of dance?

Courtney Wagner Travels to Portugal and England

Where in the world is Courtney Wagner?

This summer, Storage Wars: New York TV reality star left the Big Apple to tour with CHERYL.

Who is Cheryl you ask?

Not who, but what:

CHERYL is a four-member artist collective and band of hand models based in Brooklyn, New York, specializing in creativity. Courtney-Wagner-English-Pub

She arrived in the United Kingdom just in time to watch the England vs. Costa Rica World Cup soccer game with the locals.

Courtney went full on local and watched US vs Germany game at a proper English pudoubledeckerbusb. When in Rome, I mean London...

Fashionista kept her curves in shape by jogging through Finsbury Park which is a public park in the London Borough of Haringey.

Of course it would not be London if she did not spot a small fleet of double decker buses.

Bet you are wondering if Londoners really eat fish & chips? Not sure. Courtney ate a hot dog. You can take the gal out of New York but you can't take New York out of the gal.

She also went to Brighton Pier and found the most perfect street to call home (outside of NYC).

Brighton-streetShe did party on the beach at the A Leste festival held in Maderia, Portugal. Courtney wandered through the streets of Lisbon, Portugal.

Wagner listened to Fado music (a type of popular Portuguese song, usually with a melancholy theme and accompanied by mandolins or guitars) during Festival of São Antonio.

Did you know Courtney was in a rock band? Okay, maybe not one that plays actual instruments. Call it more of a Paper Rock Band. Wagner participated in a Paper rock interactive art installation video shoot event.

Courtney-rock-and-rollIt was intense!

While this article did not quite place her summer activities in chronological order; one thing is for sure - Courtney Wagner rocked out her summer!

Candy Olsen took a moment to stretch next to a beautiful mountainside.


Dancer Extraordinaire Olsen took this photo as she also made time for some siteseeing in Lisbon, Portugal.


Off for a quick stop for a cup of coffee in Lisbon.

After amazing performances in Spain and time out in Portugal; time for Fierce Candy to PAR-TAY with her friends!

Thrift Hunters: Meet the Cast

Thrift Hunters

SpikeTV’s new series Thrift Hunters  premiered January 4th following the coattails of the return of Auction Hunters.

The show follows business partners Jason T. Smith and Bryan Goodman.

Bryan is a Bostonian who had a penchant for digging through garage sales as well as looking for merchandise to flip at record shows throughout the Northeast.

His career began in camera sales, used office furniture business, and a luxury automobile dealership. Bryan became a top-notch negotiator, a top salesperson, and then climbed the ladder into a management position. He then turned his finely honed sales skills into a full-time power-seller on eBay.

Jason is a Midwesterner who frequented flea markets, garage sales and antique stores with his grandma, mom and aunts. He worked at record stores and learned to sell extra inventory on eBay. That’s when things turned that he began to buy and sell for himself to supplement his income.

He left his job to try thrifting full-time. He met Bryan at an eBay event and together they forged, “Thrifting with the Boys” which is a membership free group dedicated to help and mentor other eBay sellers by sharing hints and tips about acquiring items for resale at thrift stores.

How good are their mentoring chops?

Three members from their closed “Thrifting with the Boys” Facebook group shared how they bought an item for a small price and sold it for a huge profit.

  1. $10 in camera equipment - sold for $900
  2. $40 old car headlamp – sold for $1400
  3. $2 book – sold for $1200

Bryan and Jason’s favorite places to thrift shop are:

  • Savers – 250+ stores
  • Salvation Army – 1500+ stores
  • Goodwill Industries – 2500+ stores
  • Society of St. Vincent De Paul - LA and Long Beach
  • Deseret Industries – 45 stores in the Western states

Why should you watch?

Bryan and Jason are NOT actors. They are bonafide thrift hunters and you just might learn how to flip an unassuming item from a local thrift store into $$ profit.

Do you thrift hunt?
