Lieutenant Detective John Riley gets the most important and possibly most dangerous assignment ever: to investigate the mysterious death of the Huntsman. Everyone around Riley wants him to classify this as an accidental death, or a death by natural causes. But Riley suspects murder, and intends to follow that suspicion wherever it leads...even if in doing so he jeopardizes a secret held for over fifty years at the very core of Protectors, Inc.

    Things are start to quicken, so there's still time to jump into this book! This issue would be a good example on how to illustrate a comic where the story has no fight scenes. Read Full Review

    Straczynski has played this perfectly by giving the reader slight teases as we follow the investigations and thoughts of Detective Riley. It has been a fun ride that promises to have some big reveals coming in the future. As for right now however, we are left with more questions than answers and that is fine by me as I am excited to see where we go to next. It's promising to be one hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jan 16, 2014

    Protectors, Inc. #3 is another decent issue to the series. It's a superhero crime drama with solid writing and some interesting plot lines going on. However, it is also slow moving and has only okay artwork. Ultimately, it feels like a series that may be good to read, but would be better suited if one were to wait and read it as a trade.

    This series may pick up in later issues but for now it's stuck somewhere between a noir-comic with a surly, grump of a cop for a protagonist and a cop-drama with a surly, grump of a cop for a protagonist. Read Full Review

    I'm enjoying the story, but the artwork is REALLY BAD. Faces change shape many times over the course of a page.
