    It still feels just like the X-Files. If you loved the TV series, you'll love this too. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 8, 2015

    With one more installment in this arc, and in this collection I got, X-Files has certainly gotten up to speed well with its storyline in a way that I didn't expect. While I'm still not on the same page, having been away from the TV series for so long, what this arc has done is brought the property into the present mindset of storytelling in a good way and really working with the mythology rather than the overall mystery angle. This issue is more character focused while dealing with action and moving along to bring the leads back together, but it has some solid reveals and sets the foundation for bigger events as well as some sort of conclusion for the arc to come in the next installment.

    Bloody Disgusting - Jimbus_Christ Sep 18, 2013

    If Season 10 continues to push the series in bold new directions there is no telling where this book will end up. Harris and Walsh seem to have grand plans for The X-Files, and were all going to have to hang on for the wild ride. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Sean M. Thompson Sep 19, 2013

    Michael Walsh's renditions of Mulder, Scully, and The Lone Gunmen still hold up. They didn't, like, randomly get all fat or anything. Walsh's art continues to serve its purpose, and occasionally excels into a neat image or two, but primarily the visual function is to immerse the reader into the preexisting X-Files universe. It does this. While Walsh's art style is very plain Jane, it's far from overtly ugly Jane that can't do likenesses. So, though it may be a little middle of the road, full of traditional proportions and forms, the panels enamor one to their contents. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Sep 19, 2013

    Writer Joe Harris does his best to keep both the characters and the readers off-balance, as Scully loses her ability to trust her senses in an understated way. The confusion of the script feels natural, not purposefully obscured, revealing as much as it hides. Read Full Review

    Still, despite Scully-torture, and somewhat jarring time jumps, I shall give this issue a well deserved: Read Full Review

    I was going to wait for the next and final issue to post a review, but I wanted to get this up to convince anyone on the edge that it's worth it. Old and new fans alike will appreciate what Harris and Carter have done for the series. Read Full Review

    I love the story and dislike the art. Not a good combo. Read Full Review
