    If the following three issues follow #1's lead, then Protocol: Orphans should be considered a hit. It is action packed, exciting, and one thing that is missing in a lot of comics of this nature, it's fun" good fun with solid entertainment value. Boom Studios have taken this idea created by Peter Facinelli and Rob Defranco, added quality talent in writer Nelson and artist Navarro, and they have given the reader a strong story arc to their lineup that is worthy of praise and commendation. Protocol: Orphans #1 is definitely worth a look and a buy. Read Full Review

    Interesting premise, unique characters, and good ole childhood trauma. Really, though, the tweaks in an classic pattern of action agencies make this debut memorable and I really do want to know what is going on by reading the 2nd issue. I just wish I didnt feel like the 2nd issue would leave me with even more questions Read Full Review

    "Protocol: Orphans" #1 is a fun, smooth read due to the creative team's strong technique, but it's also deliberately shallow, guilty of taking too cursory a look at the dynamics it introduces just for kicks. Read Full Review
