  The holidays have brought together all the X-Files agents for the very first time! Walter Skinner hosts a get-together for his most special agents, but the festive night turns tense when someone-or something-comes down the chimney! In a second story, the X-Files team of the 1940s-Bing Ellington and Millie Ohio from the Year Zero miniseries-investigate a potential Communist saboteur, but discover an impossible creature-a gremlin!

    A must have for X-Files fans of any era. Creepy, cool, and Christmasy. Read Full Review

    Part two may be slightly confusing at first to those not familiar with the X-Files spin-off title, although halfway in I would be willing to bet that this would be forgotten. The story is easy to understand and fall into, making it simple for any- and everyone reading. This story is a little lighter on the holiday theme and a lot heavier on the science fiction, rounding out the fun theme of the first part of the book. Joe Harris and Matthew Dow Smith are a more than a writer/artist team in this issue, they are a force to be reckoned with and I hope to see them join up again in future endeavors. Read Full Review

    I think for fans of the X-Files this will be a fun special to pick up for the holidays. That said, more casual fans might enjoy the second story more for not having to worry too much about having an intimate knowledge of the characters for full enjoyment. Read Full Review

    The pencils by Matthew Smith and Matthew Southworth are both exceptional, which helps push this one onto the plus side of the critical scale" although perhaps not enough to justify the $8.00 price tag (!). Read Full Review

    The X-Files Xmas Special is a fun caper with a lot of familiar faces and great humor, but lacks a lot of substance to make it a compelling read. Read Full Review
