An unexplained local disappearance, a corpse that lands several hundred miles from the scene of the crime, and the very first death of one of the Protectors...what do these three seemingly unrelated incidents have in common? And why is Protectors, Inc. so determined to whitewash the possibility that the super-powered hero was murdered? Lieutenant Detective Riley may be the only one who really wants to discover the truth.

    The mystery grows and characters who had minor appearances in the first issue reappear. What's the connection?I don't know, but I'll be back next month to learn more! Read Full Review

    Straczynski's writing continues to deliver here and the renderings of Purcell and Atiyeh are just wonderful. They capture the old school stone jaw look of the classic superhero with the more modern dark shadowy feel of the modern heroes. Somewhere here, the two are going to collide and I for one can't wait to see where. I find Protectors Inc. to be classic good comic entertainment that hits its marks at all the right places the way a good comic should. Bravo. Read Full Review

    Protectors, Inc. #2 is a good comic that has the potential despite not much happening and the forgettable artwork. It's got a good setup, solid characterization and dialogue, and an engaging mystery that makes me want to know more. There's plenty of room for it to grow and here's hoping it does as more is revealed over time. Read Full Review

    While not as good as issue one, issue two does push the story forward, if not as much as I would have liked. This is a series that will probably read better in trade since the writing and art are both solid its just being tripped up by not covering enough ground in each issue. Hopefully well see the pace pick up in the next issue now that the world and conflict have been established. At the end of the day Im not giving up the series, Ill be picking up issue three and my fingers are crossed that things will really be moving by then. Read Full Review
