Issue 1 of Protector’s, Inc. premiers today, Wednesday 06 November 2013. Protector’s Inc. is a new series from Joe’s Comics and Image written by J. Michael Straczynski, with art by Gordon PUrcell and colors by Michael Atiyeh.
Here is the description from Studio JMS:
Protectors, Inc. Heroes in a world without super-powered bad guys. Heroes with corporate sponsors and far too polite rivalries and sporting franchises. Heroes without anything or anyone to fight…until one of them is murdered in ways that could only have been accomplished by someone with equal powers.
The mystery falls to Lieutenant Detective John Riley to unravel, an ordinary man whose investigation takes him into a strange and dangerous world light years beyond his abilities to understand, and very likely far beyond his capacity to survive.
The trail will lead to a secret held for over fifty years that could threaten the very existence of Protectors, Inc., an impossible love affair, and a serial killer whose work is not yet finished.
