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?

Click after the jump for our recap and review.

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.

Review: The X-Files: Season 10 #24

The X-Files: Season 10 #24 CoverThis month, the 24th issue of The X-Files: Season 10 starts off in New York City, at 46th street to be exact… And you know what that means. We step into the First Elder’s explanation of what the syndicate was then, and what it is now. He’s explaining this to someone, from the shadows of this familiar room. Gibson Praise has forced this new conspiracy on them. They’re serving a system that no longer cares for a hierarchy and they’re at the mercy of Gibson’s trigger happy destructive character.
