    Harris and Currie have enough moxie to take a risk like this; they have the talent and experience not only to pull it off, but to make it special. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black May 12, 2017

    Some may end up frustrated that Harris keeps the source of the paranormality here on the fringes–bar a few suggestions typically from Mulder–but that would be to ignore the character conflict which dominates the story. The talisman is but a catalyst for Skinner's own realisations here, which Harris conveys well alongside the undercurrent of Army tribunals and military justice rippling away and affecting Skinner's journey. With some great art from Andrew Currie, who captures our main characters very well, this is a very good conclusion from Harris to an illuminating and fascinating X-Files story. Read Full Review
