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.

Solving the mystery falls to Lieutenant Detective John Riley, 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 leads to a fifty-year-old secret that could threaten the very existence of Protectors, Inc., an impossible love affair, and a serial killer whose work is not yet finished.

Portacio Returns To Creator-Owned Comics With Non-Humans

PLAYTHINGS COME TO LIFE IN NON-HUMANS

New ongoing series from Whilce Portacio, Image Comics

Non-Humans #1Press release

One of Image Comics’ founders, Whilce Portacio, returns to creator-owned world with the new series NON-HUMANS, penned by Glen Brunswick (GRAY AREA, JERSEY GODS), to be published by Image Comics in October.

An otherworldly disease brought back to Earth by a NASA space probe has given inanimate objects like toys, dolls, and mannequins the ability to come to life, able to walk, talk, and speak — and to think for themselves. A new minority class called "Non-Humans," the former objects take on part of the personalities of the people who used or even loved them.
