I've got a lot of this series and I think the rest are going to be in order as far as the ones I've got, so expect only Dogs of War pieces for awhile. Posting these as I scan them. Having to stitch the scans together so each page you see posted is at least 3 scans stitched.
My friend must still have page 24, because one of us owns a page with a close-up of the villainess' face in this book. I'll be getting it eventually. I buy pages from him periodically as he gets bored with them.

Since these Dogs of War pages to not clearly indicate what is going on, I've decided to post my old synopsis.
Dogs of War #1
Shooter and Mouse return from the Plasm world. He shows off his new talents to the military and they run him off. Upon returning to his apartment, he discovers that he has been evicted and the landlord has put all his belongings in storage. His significant other is seeing another man.
His mom is broke and desperate because she fell for a marketing scam that took her money. She's working two jobs. Shooter is fed up with the injustice and raids the headquarters of the Canadian company that cheated his mother out of her savings. He tracks down a company supervisor and destroys his car after the guy can't tell where the money went. Mouse loans him money to help his mom.
Later, while walking around in the park, he ponders how to pay back Mouse. A drug dealer assaults him and pulls a gun. Shooter kicks the drug dealer's posterior and keeps the drug dealer's money. Shooter decides that ridding the drug dealers from streets of New York is more profitable than other forms of employment. He continues.
Major Hawkins, one of the military guys from his earlier encounter tracks down Shooter. Shooter is hired to find Major Hawkins' missing grand-daughter who was abducted by someone connected to the child porn industry. Shooter, with the help of Mouse, follows the trail of the girls abduction to the office of a woman who heads a child porn business. The woman warns Shooter of her powerful connections. Shooter starts to leave, but he returns to perform an unmentioned act upon the woman as she screams off panel.
This issue begins one of the most unique and disturbing series of the 1990's. This series features a ruthless vigilante justice that singles out the evils of society offering little or no mercy.
A bomb is detonated on Manhattan bridge by terrorist. Mouse and Shooter have been drinking for hours to celebrate putting the porn queen out of business in issue #1. On the cab ride home, Shooter insists on one stop at the hospital. Shooter sees fit to go track down the battered porn queen in the hospital and beat the hell out of her again. As one hospital employee states "it sounds like someone is murdering that woman in 14B". Shooter, ill from drinking, vomits afterwards.
While at the hospital, Shooter and Mouse learn of the bridge explosion. Patients are filling the emergency room. Shooter and Mouse head down to the bridge to save lives and pull wreckage from the partially collapsed bridge. Mouse gets home later and finds out his uncle was killed in the explosion.
A week later, Shooter and Mouse meet again. Mouse tells Shooter about the explosion and his uncle dying. Shooter insists on finding the people responsible and wants to "skrag those guys". Mouse insists that they do things his way and ultimately use the court system.
Meanwhile, at a consulate in New York City, we discover the terrorists involved are being protected there and plans are underway to smuggle them out of the country. Shooter goes invisible and infiltrates the FBI. He learns that red tape will stop the terrorists from coming to justice. Mouse and Shooter dress up to attend a consulate reception as uninvited guests. Shooter gets in first and finds the terrorists. Shooter also overhears their plan to escape the country.
Down below, Mouse is still held up at the door as Shooter starts attacking the terrorists. Mouse gets in as all security is sent to stop Shooter. They catch the terrorist, but the ambassador protecting them, gets away. Shooter catches up to the ambassador, but the ambassador protects himself behind secure doors. Shooter breaks a gas line because he knows that the ambassador smokes cigars. Shooter leaves. He warns everyone else to evacuate because a bomb will be going off soon. Ten minutes goes by, the ambassador exits his protective shelter and his lighter triggers a huge gas explosion. Injuries and deaths occur. Mouse and Shooter disagree on how justice should be administered. They part ways with their friendship seemingly ended.
