2010: ARMOR WARS finale

With 2010 behind us, our theme of Armor Wars is now complete. We really had a fun time with this. My favorite is when one of us would get a sketch and say, "Hey, he can go in the Armor Wars!"

We certainly covered a lot of characters and different ideas with this theme. And really, that is the fun of it. I remember very clearly when JLAdam threw the idea out there, and it was obvious it was going to work. However, I had no idea it would be the cause of all of this!!

I will keep it simple, a roll call if you will. If you want to know more about the stories of any of these, check out our galleries at Comic Art Fans, or ask us, we'ld be happy to share!
