    I defy any fan not to hear Mark Snow's haunting theme music at the end of this issue. It's a perfect X-Files tale full of thrills and strangeness that will leave readers hungry for more, but afraid of what it might reveal. Recommended. Read Full Review

    The X-Files revival series has gotten really great at delivering these short, but effective story arcs, and this issue is yet another solid example of their consistency. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Mar 1, 2017

    Stick around too for a delightful stinger of a final moment which brings ‘Contrarians' full circle in many ways. If this issue lacks the raw, post-election anger Joe Harris poured into the first, it nonetheless reeks of mythological understanding of the series and the greater political and conspiratorial elements of the characters and story being told. A brief, therefore, but stylish and enjoyable two-part story, very nicely drawn, which ends here in satisfying fashion. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Feb 28, 2017

    Add in some genuinely funny retro humor, and you've got yourself a solid X-Files issue. It certainly wasn't spectacular, but it was also a heck of a lot better than anything we've read since the series' most recent relaunch. Maybe digging back into the past is just what this book needed to start heading in the right direction again. Read Full Review
