Welcome to X-Files News!
We've all known for a while that Gillian Anderson will be headed to New York City this fall. With the upcoming release of her first novel, A Vision of Fire, she has a lot of promotion work to do. Coincidentally, she'll be in the city at the same time as New York Comic Con. People have been wondering, will she make an appearance at the con?
Well luckily for fanboys and fangirls alike, it has been confirmed that Gillian will be attending this year's convention. She will be present October 9 through 11th, signing autographs as well as participating in a panel.
The "Damsels in Distress Need Not Apply" panel is on Friday October 10th and will feature authors discussing the creation of their strong female protagonists. Gillian will be joined by eight other authors. More details can be found here.
XFN will be covering NYCC again this year, so if you're not able to make it to the convention, you can count on us for live tweets and lots of photos. We'll keep you updated as more details on the weekend's schedule emerge.
Another month and a brand new story comes with The X-Files: Season 10! Joe Harris and the team at IDW bring us a MOTW issue that delves into the supernatural with a tinge of religious lore that promises to scare your pants off.

Frank Spotnitz’s indie Big Light Productions has appointed former Holby City and Down To Earth producer Sharon Remmer as its head of drama.
Remmer’s most recent role was head of development at Moone Boy producer Sprout Pictures, the indie set up by Stephen Fry.
She will fill the newly created position and be tasked with developing Big Light’s drama slate with the aim of working with UK and US broadcasters.
Remmer said she joined the indie because of Spotnitz’ “clear vision and unrivalled ambition”, while Spotnitz lauded her “deep knowledge, love and respect for talent”. Big Light was set up by former X-Files showrunner Spotnitz and is focused on developing high quality returning drama series.
In April it announced that it was working on a co-production with Downton Abbey producer Carnival Films for crime series Freud: The Secret Casebook.
The London-based indie also made series two of Transporter: The Series for M6, HBO Canada and TNT.
Spotnitz wrote and created Hunted for BBC1 and Cinemax.
In July, production network Greenbird acquired a minority stake in Big Light, thought to be around 30%. The company also entered into a first-look distribution deal with Studio Canal unit Tandem Communications in April.
As part of our visit to San Diego Comic Con 2014, we had the pleasure to interview the cast and crew of the upcoming CBS show Scorpion. Katherine McPhee (American Idol, Smash), Gabel Elyes (Game of Thrones, World War Z) and Robert Patrick (The X-Files, Terminator II, The Sopranos) star in this high profile hit, and we'll let the creators and cast themselves tell you all about it!
Our review for the upcoming premiere will come in a few days. Stay tuned!
The 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.
