The URL for the first, which was hosted offsite on an ad-heavy provider is currently lost to the mists of time.

The departure of Brian Azzarello as regular series artist seemed to kickstart a renewed interest in the title online (and, oddly enough, a drop off in sales in the real world) as was evident in the surprising growth of traffic on the then-new forum. Over the course of a year and a half it moved up to an average of 350 posts a week.
