    Scully is at ground zero for the conspiracy, Mulder is far away, and the missiles have been launched. This penultimate issue has the entire future of the world in jeopardy, as one group continues to remain silent. Must reading for X-Files fans that creates paranoia and visual thrills on every page.

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Jul 19, 2017

    Giving Skinner more of a presence has also been a boon to this story, he once again straddling the line between helping Mulder and what he can't tell him, which helps further build 'Resistance' into the kind of spooky mythology story you almost wish the TV show was tapping into. Tight, complex, filled with unerring moments and a real sense of impending doom that fits the zeitgeist of our time, 'Resistance' sets the scene for what could be Joe Harris' best story yet for this continuation series of The X-Files as he bows out of the job.

    Outright Geekery - Tom Guilfoyle Jul 18, 2017

    Issue 16 is a great issue for anyone reading X-Files right now. However, if you are new to the series this issue isn't the one to start with. The writing and art are brilliant and what you've come to expect from a X-Files comic. The cover by Menton3 and variant by Tom Whalen are fantastic and great additions to the brilliant covers the X-Files have had. Read Full Review

    Not even Harris' brilliant topical humor and Matthew Dow Smith can save this series from the grips of a predictable, stale narrative. Read Full Review
