    I want to like this story more than I do. The good aspects are fantastic. But I just can't get over the hollow ending and shifting quality of art. Call me disappointed. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Aug 24, 2016

    Props to Joe Harris for trying something different in this outing for The X-Files, and ‘Ishmael' as a combined story definitely eschews the traditional investigation tale to try and connect to Scully in a brave way, but the escalation and build up of the mystery fails to pay off in a satisfying, emotional manner. It's a shame because I'd like to see Harris continue experimenting with different kinds of cases. This one, though looking good with some strong artwork, just doesn't click. Next up, it's mytharc territory so hopefully the run can get back onto firing in all cylinders. Read Full Review
