    30 Days of Night brings with it a gore level that is artistic. The blood splatter and stained snow isn't just splashed on a page. Artist Tom Mandrake and the colorists Royer, Eltaeb and Gonzalez worked wonders to bring Mulder and Scully's celebrity faces to the comic book world and have them interact with monstrous creatures of the night. The entire book was done very well from start to finish. It made me feel like I was enjoying an X-Files episode where the 30 Days of Night world exists in the same space. Even if you are not familiar with either franchise, you can pick up this dark paranormal investigating case and enjoy it for the story and art that decorates the pages with mystery and gore.

    It was hard for me to figure out where to put this, mainly because I felt the art was no-so-great; however, the writing and story on this, so far, were amazing. If you ever enjoyed either of these properties, jump on this book. You'll love it. For readers who never really got into either franchise, try it out anyway because this really was enjoyable.

    While there are some weaknesses, I am sufficiently intrigued to want to see where this goes from here. Is it wrong that I kind of hope Mulder and Scully end up vampires? Come on, that would be hilarious. Read Full Review

    Tom Mandrake's strength is a greater sense of visual consistency than Wildstorm's previous X-Files series was able to offer. However, his work isn't creepy or stylish enough to be held against the great 30 Days artists like Ben Templesmith. I would have killed for Templesmith's involvement on this book. Still, this crossover is off to a good start, and I'm looking forward to more vampire-induced hijinks from Mulder and Scully in upcoming issues. Read Full Review

    Only the introduction to the story, "X-Files/30 Days of Night" #1 sets up the presence of vampires and the reason for Mulder and Scully to be around. With five issues left, both sets of fans should be pleased when the two parties cross paths. Read Full Review

    Otherwise this is solid, fun start to a crossover that will please the fans of either franchise with a decent (so far) story, some chills and great visuals that match the tone of the tale perfectly. Read Full Review
