Some helpful tips when searching for downloads:
If results are too general, try searching for the year, volume, issues, creators, rippers or scanners, if you know them. Some popular names and terms include "CPS", "DCP", "Empire", "TheGroup", "Minutemen", "Novus", "Obi", "YZ1", "digital", "webrip", "noads" and "c2c". Remember that "Comic Name" might have separate listings from "Comic-Name" or "ComicName", remember that with volumes "v#" would return different results than "vol#" and "volume #", and remember that issue "##" might be listed separately from issue "#" or "###". On search engines like Google, results can be narrowed down through modifiers such as "-[unwanted term]", "site:[website]" and "filetype:[extension]". And if all else fails, try DC++.

Be patient, be polite, and understand the simple concept behind these simple words: Not posted means not ripped/scanned yet (or no 4chan-friendly mirrors yet). Any other questions can be directed at the back-up thread on plus4chan (see above), so post whatever minor inquiries there. If you are unable to locate a comic, our good friend AnHeroGold has generously opened himself to requests at [email protected]

Making mirrors is always appreciated, if any of you would like to help out. And lastly, Hail!
