XFN Goes to Calgary Expo


The weather might not feel like Spring yet, but it has sure arrived with the beginning of “Con” season. Calgary Expo is only a couple of days away, and XFN has been officially accredited to report live from the convention. This expo will take place over the weekend, April 26-28th in Calgary, AB at the BMO Centre.

If you are attending, prepare yourself for a great time because this is one of the biggest X-Files reunion in the past couple of years. Gillian Anderson, Robert Patrick, Mitch Pileggi, Mark Sheppard, and Cary Elwes are all in attendence. However, if you are unable to attend, fear no more because XFN’s very own Jeremy Schoff and Matthew Nygren will be there all weekend to report live on all things X-Files.

A Look at Issue #2 of the New ‘X-Files’ Comics


The first issue of the new IDW X-Files comics is released on June 19th, 2013. Newsarama recently published the covers that we can expect from to see from Issue #2 in July. We’ve already seen sneak peaks of  Lone Gunmen artwork, and now we know how that artwork will be incorporated into the cover. There are two additional covers as well, one also featuring the Lone Gunmen and the other with an old school promo photo of Mulder and Scully.

Included in the write-up was this synopsis of the issue:

‘Believers,’ Part 2 of 5. Dana Scully has survived abduction, cancer, motherhood by mysterious means, and surrendering her “miracle” baby. But she’s never encountered anything like these ‘Acolytes’ before, or the mysterious ‘Deacon’ who’s saved her from them. Plus, Mulder follows a lead to Arlington National Cemetery and the final resting place of the ‘Lone Gunmen.’

This gives us some information we didn’t have before. We’ve got a title for Issue #2: “Believers”. And apparently we’ll be seeing five issues in this series (that we know of so far anyway). We also have a better idea of where this story is going.

If you need a refresher on the original details of the comics, check out this article. Joe Harris is the writer and Michael Walsh, the artist. And of course, Chris Carter is producing them, as well. 

So how does this all fit into the post-IWTB lives of Mulder and Scully? Well the truth is out there…until June anyway. (Click the photos below to view larger images of the covers.)
