Review: The X-Files: Year Zero #2

XFiles YZ02 cvrSUB1The X-Files: Year Zero, Issue #2, once again delivers brilliantly, artfully merging both stories and timelines into a cohesive whole. Karl Kesel nails Mulder and Scully’s voices, and in the process, continues to make me fall in love with Agent Bing Ellison and the unfortunately named Humility Ohio. After reading this issue, I can’t wait to see what’s next for the dynamic duos and how it all leads to the creation of “The X-Files”. If you pick up just one comic series this year, I’d recommend Year Zero.

Hit the jump for the spoiler-filled review below.

Review: The X-Files: Season 10 #15

The X-Files: Season 10, #15 is out today and with it our newest review. I found this last issue of the multi-parter very satisfying. Even though the content is cryptic at times and I could have used a couple more pages to elaborate further on the nature and consequences of the new advances of the story, Joe Harris delivered an issue that was filled to the brim with intrigue and builds upon the mythology being developed for Season 10.

As I’ve said in the past, this is not a series that is looking to wrap up story lines right away, and I’m looking forward to the next mythology issues coming up soon.

Review: The X-Files: Season 10 #14

I know, I know… I’m about a month late on this review… blame it on SDCC hangover. I was not shying away from reviewing this issue, believe me, I was actually very keen to do it because it provoked quite an interesting reaction from parts of the fandom since the previews came through the grapevine.

I’m excited to address some, if not all, of the talked about topics, but first, on to the basics. A spoiler-filled review and further opinions after the jump.
