Welcome to X-Files News!
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.
If you are at SDCC right now, run! No, there's no need for a panic face, but run!

Joe Harris is at BB-03 and Joe Corroney is at GG-08.
And if you can, stick around until 5PM for the IDW: Comics Make For Great Games panel. They're gonna talk about the much anticipated X-Files board game out this summer! You may even get to play a game or two. The panel is in Room 4.

In “The X-Files: Year Zero”, our heroes are once again on the case, this time hot on the tail (hehe) of a shape-shifting cat. Or is it human? In this case, it’s a black leopard, but either way, it provides for some classic Mulder and Scully banter, leads us all the way back to 1946, and introduces us to some just as lovable new agents, Bing Ellison and Humility Ohio.
Year Zero is sure to satisfy both Philes and new readers alike. This issue, written true to character by Karl Kesel, is a solid first outing and well worth the read.
Take the jump and read on for the full spoilerific review:
You heard that right! A 'new' score for the blockbuster hit The X-Files: Fight The Future will be released as soon as noon of July 29th, 2014, Pacific Standard Time.

According to the producers:
This special limited edition release features much improved sound and contains some music not previously released.
