THE X-FILES will be RETURNING to TV!

Six episodes, and six stories.  That is what creator Chris Carter is promising fans.  With Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny returning this is a true return of the cult series.  Talk had been getting pretty strong over the last year, but many fans remained skeptical as Carter and Duchovny have been speaking about the series non […]

X-Files Season 10, #13: Review

After a terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia, Mulder and Scully are dispatched to the Middle East. While their subsequent investigation reveals Black Oil, the biggest oddity it uncovers is Alex Krycek, Mulder’s former partner and longtime frenemy, who (it seems) has returned from the dead. Well, maybe. Here’s the official word from IDW: “Black oil” […]

X-Files: Season 10 – Review

It took a while, but Mulder and Scully are working as a team again after spending the last few issues separately investigating (or fleeing from) the Acolytes. And while issue #5 offers a heavy dose of the team dynamic that X-fans have been craving, the resolution to the “Believers” doesn’t altogether satisfy. Here’s the official […]

X-Files: Season 10 #4 – Review

Lost in the forest of Yellowstone National Park, Scully is trying desperately to escape her Acolyte pursuers. But these alien sonsabitches are shape shifters, too, which adds a layer of complexity that makes this fourth installment of X-Files: Season 10 is a more-than-decent action issue. Here’s the official word from IDW: “Believers,” Part 4 of 5: […]

X-Files: Season 10, #3: Review

After a stellar premier issue, X-Files: Season 10 followed up with an uneven (and mildly unsatisfying) sophomore issue. But after reading the latest installment I only have one thing to say: everything is forgiven. Issue #3 might be one of the best paced X-Files stories in recent memory. Here’s the official word from IDW: “Believers,” […]

X-Files #2: Review

I won’t lie: I’ve missed the X-Files. And in many ways issue #2 of X-Files: Season 10 delivers everything my nerdy heart had longed for. It’s a big old reunion book, with page-after-page of character re-introductions, and the return of long lost friends. So why aren’t I happy? Maybe because what I really missed was […]

X-Files: Season 10 #1 Review

IDW’s decision to launch a new monthly comic series that picks up where the X-Files left off was risky. Mulder and Scully have a cult following; and season 10 is sacred ground.  But if issue #1 is any indication, it was a risk worth taking. Here’s the official description from IDW: In the opening story […]
