"DETECTIVES INC. is a dramatic book: It is tense and powerful and draws one into its action...it is easy to be attracted to a Captain America or a Superman, because he is a dream, an ideal. It is less easy to become attracted to a human being, and this is one of the things that Don McGregor and Marshall Rogers do here: they assert (and show) that two detectives, the divorced wife, two lovers separated by death from their common object of passion and others, can be just as exciting, as powerful, as dramatic an ensemble as the Avengers or the Justice League of America." -- Peter Gillis, COMICS FEATURE
"DETECTIVES INC. is a tour de force for writer/creator Don McGregor and illustrator Marshall Rogers. It is one of the new breed of mature underground productions that places people and relationships ahead of superheroism and bizarre, horrific plots.
McGregor's Culp and Cosby type detective team of Ted Denning and Bob Rainier live in a Philip Marlowe existence on the seamy side of 1980 New York. Although the plot is fairly simple, their lives are refreshingly complex and the two stories are well blended with the help of Rogers' excellent black and white illustrations." -- Howard Zimmerman
"The writing and illustrations owe far more to the techniques of the motion picture than to comic books, with cross cutting and other film innovations used most effectively to tell the story of a murder with roots in a lesbian love affair." --ELLERY QUEEN MYSTERY MAGAZINE
