Review: The X-Files FAQ – All That’s Left to Know About Global Conspiracy, Aliens, Lazarus Species, and Monsters of the Week.

txffaq1With The X-Files FAQ, John Kenneth Muir presents us with a well-written, if at times exhaustive, look back at our favorite show. The book covers all nine seasons and two movies, going so far as to delve into precursors, spin-offs, and homages that would later be produced. The X-Files FAQ: All That’s Left to Know About Global Conspiracy, Aliens, Lazarus Species, and Monsters of the Week is a result of either painstaking research, or abiding love. I suspect it’s a combination of the two.

We have a copy of John’s book to giveaway, so read on for details and our full review.

Recap & Review: The X-Files: Season 11 #2

091315 aq txfs112 1There was much noise online when this issue was announced. The confusion between the titles for The X-Files revival episodes and the comics went on for a while, so did the themes, and so much more speculation. Sitting down with “Home Again” Part 1 finally happened, and I’m here to report my findings.

Previously, we learn that Mulder and Scully continue to be separated while on their task to try and clear Mulder’s name and deal with Gibson’s looming threats. So how far along do we get with this new installment?

Review: Jonathan Maberry’s “The X-Files: Trust No One”

090115 aq jmbLast year during San Diego Comic Con, we connected with renowned and award-winning author, Jonathan Maberry. He gave us a sneak peek into his upcoming projects, including this one book that we might be interested in… The X-Files: Trust No One. We have to admit that he didn’t slip us too much information back then, but he obviously piqued our interest and we were certainly curious.

We interviewed him earlier in the year, and we discussed a lot of the details of the production process for this book and the upcoming ones – IDW Publishing and Maberry are working on a second and third volume already. The number of writers interested in delivering a story for this collection proved to be quite overwhelming and after reading this first one, we couldn’t be happier.

Recap & Review: The X-Files: Season 11 #1

081915 aq s11 1 1Previously on The X-Files: Season 10… Gibson Praise happened and then all of a sudden, Mulder and Scully’s world turned upside down. No, really. I mean it.

In the last part of last season, the “Elders” multi-parter delivered the ongoing threat that now plagues our heroes’ lives. Separated after Mulder fled Cuba to an unknown destiny and Scully came back to the US to face the music at the FBI, they’re now under Gibson’s constant vigilance and daredevil actions.

Review: The X-Files: Season 10 #25

070115 aq s10 1In case you need a The X-Files: Season 10 refresher, last time we saw Mulder, he was escaping Gibson’s captivity thanks to CSM’s clone but was caught by poachers when he was trying to hitch a ride. Scully traveled to Cuba, with documents and tickets given to her by another version of CSM. They’re so handy. She’d climbed in a ratty old car to go to the Sierra Maestra area in search for Mulder. Just as she arrives to a settlement, with people in need of a doctor, Gibson is quick to meet her for one surprising and shocking reunion.

This is the last part of a five parter finale that gave us many thrills. This last issue brings us 40 pages of conclusions and new beginnings.

This issue also includes a sneak peek into this year’s Annual to be released next month! There we find Mulder and Scully arriving at what’s understood as his high school reunion… Scully is wearing a dress, he’s in a tuxedo, and for a moment I thought this was the FBI ball. Soon we learn that this is not Mulder’s stroll down memory lane, but a scheme to go undercover and investigate a possible X-File. We’ll have to wait for next month to see if Mulder and Scully end up dancing tango.
