@fallschirmjager: I've seen this title pop up in the reviews section, so I skimmed the first couple of scans you put up. I stopped at Issue 4 since it was getting too good. Thanks to you, I'll be buying this book now :-)

In case anyone is wondering.

@allstarsuperman: ...old ass comment but whatever. I'll shamelessly bump my own thread.

After the recent site updates, old posts got jacked up image wise. I tried editing my Aquaman respect thread after the updates and ALL the images *poofed* out of the OP. Luckily I had the foresight to organize all my scans in folders on my PC so re-uploading them was somewhat trivial.

However. I didn't do that with X-O Manowar, so if I were to edit the OP, I would lose all those scans and have to redo it all x.x.

Also, sorry for the lack of updates. I've been lazy. Haha. Don't think anything too noteworthy has happened since Issue 24 anyway for Aric. Mostly more of the same - though I expect some more cool shit to happen with Armor Hunters now.
