"Chitter" A missing persons investigation leads Agents Mulder and Scully into a disgusting mess of human sacrifice, enough bugs to keep your skin crawling long after the issue is over, and The X-Files' newest "Monster of the Month." But what is "The Chittering God," and why does it hunger for Dana Scully?

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Feb 17, 2014

    This is the best issue of this series. If you have a fleeting memory of the show, this will renew your faith in new adventures. Never read an X-Files? I don't know if you're ready for this, but here it is…The Chittering God doesn't ask for anything, but I do: Get this! Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ben Simms Feb 12, 2014

    Mythological deaths in a sleepy small town, without a doubt you've come across something similar many times before, and there's a reason for this. When written by a confident, well versed hand, it can culminate in some of the greatest suspense stories around. The mystery lying within these thirty pages provides a fast paced and intriguing piece of pulp fiction that does not rely on extensive knowledge of the canon that precedes it. Old friends of Mulder and Scully will feel right at home with the snappy word play between the two, while newcomers can find amusement as they get to know the agents. If Harris and Scott continue in this fashion, The X Files Season Ten has the potential to become a true classic for IDW, and bring a long awaited rejuvenation for the groundbreaking series.

    Big Comic Page - Jules Boyle Feb 12, 2014

    IDW have really got something special with this run of The X-Files. The shows finale left a lot to be desired and these comics, while being a direct continuation of it, feels much more like the classic era of the series. Great stuff. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Feb 12, 2014

    Everything else that works about this series is still working. Namely the character voices are spot on. Harris really understands the dynamic between Mulder and Scully and the humor of the X-Files comes through in droves. This issue is a lot of fun, and might just chill you to your core. It just comes to an end far too quickly for its own good. Read Full Review

    All in all, ‘The X-Files Season 10′ #9was an interesting read, but hardly anything to really write home about. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Feb 12, 2014

    It should also be noted that even the worst X-Files issue from Joe Harris (of which this definitely qualifies for consideration) is still not completely terrible. But he's proven on plenty other occasions to be capable of so much more. Read Full Review

    The plot was sufficiently creepy, true to X-Files form. The writing was suspenseful, but the pacing felt a little bit off. The ending was slightly abrupt, and I'm not sure if the story-line is continuing or not (but I guess that's kind of part of the fun). I miss Walsh's art, but Scott's work was pretty solid, so no real complaints there! All around strong issue.
