We have to admit to be on the edge of our seat every 3rd week of the month these days; a new issue of The X-Files: Season 10 rolls in and we get to follow the intricate story that the folks at IDW Publishing are delivering by the great talents of Joe Harris and Michael Walsh, watched closely by Chris Carter himself.
This month includes five different covers by Carlos Valenzuela, Nick Percival and a very clever one by The Sharp Brothers that resembles a Scooby Doo scene with all The X-Files gang!
Issue #4 comes out September 18th, and we can tell you that the series continues to be greatly engaging. This is the fourth of a five-part storyline, but the series won’t stop there; they’re anticipating already a few MOTW stories to come.
But onto the matter at hand: for those of you that want to remain unspoiled until you get your issue tomorrow, either at your local comic store or through Comixology, don’t worry, we’ll give you a brief evaluation of this month’s issue today and a full review tomorrow. We know how our X-Philes like to keep the anticipation brewing!
The story continues discovering more and more details of the conspiracy behind the mysterious government run drilling and the acolytes. The game pieces begin to fit into place as Mulder pursues the investigation in hopes to save Scully from her captors and we’re sure that you will enjoy the nods to classic X-Files situations that made us love the show.
The filmmaker in me pictured a couple of scenes so clearly, continuing with the very cinematic style that they’ve gotten us used to, and still keeping in place with the comic style that they have adopted for the series. We’re very pleased by the way that the story has been laid out, and are indeed intrigued to see how the seeds planted in previous issues come to a full bloom by the time we get to issue #5.
The X-Files: Season 10 – Believers 4 of 5 is out in stores on September 18th.
Come back tomorrow for a full, spoiler-filled review. Click after the jump for a preview of the first couple of scenes of this month’s issue.
