A WORD FROM CHRIS This story is actually a revised version of the script for the unreleased issue #2 of my original comic book, THE PROTECTOR, which you can read for free with Kindle here: https://www.amazon.com/s?i=digital-te... In that book, The Protector makes his presence known to Republic City, and we see how he handles himself as both a superhero and a crime scene investigator. Issue 2 (this story) deals with the fallout of how vigilante justice can complicate things, specifically in the courts.
I never planned to release issue 2 as a radio play, but since I was never able to complete the actual comic, and I had such fun with my last couple of radio plays: JACK SLATER V, and WEST OF SHATNER, I decided why not? And gave it a go. Recording and editing radio plays are actually really easy for me, which makes them a lot of fun. Plus, I get to act, which I love and continually wish to do more of.
Unfortunately, I think I might have played one too many parts in this play, due to lack of other actors being available and or having proper recording equipment. But them's the breaks.
