I loved The Protectors. It had one of the greatest opening AND closing title sequences ever, along with one of the best theme tunes.
Rough diamond hero with posh totty heroine? I mean, you can't go wrong, can you? Mind you, I never actually understood The Protectors. For starters, Tony Anholt ( the guy who isn't Robert Vaughn ) was always in the credits, but hardly ever in the actual show.
Plus, the stories never made any sense. But then, by all accounts they never made much sense to the cast either.
Regardless, it was great fun, and like a lot of TV at the time, it got it's own comic strip in the pages of TV Action. This piece looks like it was done by Axa / Supercats / Modesty Blaise's Enrique Romero,or maybe Jorge Galvez. Either way, it's great, even if little attempt is made to catch any of the cast's likenesses.
And here's Garth's Martin Asbury, with a b/w tonal piece, definitely going for likenesses, and equally great.
