It began with two seemingly unconnected deaths: a young woman, washed up on the shore of Lake Michigan, and the Huntsman, whose death Protectors Inc. insisted was an accident. But now the lines connecting those two events are becoming clear, and Lieutenant Detective John Riley finds himself on the edge of a conspiracy that may shatter everything the public believes about their heroes...assuming he can survive the investigation.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Apr 23, 2014

    Protectors, Inc. #6 is a perfectly good issue of the series that is hampered by the series' usual problems of pacing and slow progression. What the series does have is a great and interesting mystery, good characters, and solid writing. If the story picked up the pace more, I could easily recommend this to people are looking for a nice crime series involving superheroes. As it stands, this is a comic that you should wait for the trades, where you can fully appreciate what it's doing. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Zack Roberts Apr 24, 2014

    This is a series I have been enjoying, and its smooth storytelling from book to book makes it easy to read. This installment poses new questions for the reader and Riley, and evolves him and his relationship The Angel. It does feel like a “filler” issue but this allows breathing room in a complex and interesting overall narrative.The most impactive event (the coroner's fire) is not given enough attention, and far too many pages are dedicated to Riley's relationship with The Angel, despite little happening between them.
