"Came Back Haunted," Part 1 of 4: A thwarted attack puts a community of refugees at risk, but when a connection to a recent mall shooting is found, Mulder and Scully must determine the cause of the violent outbreaks, why the government is covering it up, and just what the connection to old secrets they'd believed dead and buried really is.

    Outright Geekery - Tom Guilfoyle Sep 21, 2016

    Overall this issue is a great issue, that set's up what will be a tense arc. Harris produces another excellent script that is brought to life with Smith's and Bellaire's art and coloring. This issue is good for current fans of the series and also a great issue for a jump on point as it's the start of a new arc. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Sep 21, 2016

    Though it is firmly an exercise in establishing the main players, the central mystery and connecting up to the new mythology Harris is playing with in his comic, 'Came Back Haunted' is an effective opening issue which blends a return for Dow Smith lending his own brand of edgy, grainy panels which add a real sense of dripping atmosphere to The X-Files world (after the colour & brightness of 'Ishmael'), mixed with a creepy mystery loaded with a real-life connective to global geopolitics and the humanitarian crisis which, like many good X-Files, keeps it with one foot in the real world. A solid beginning for a story that, certainly judging by the cliffhanger, is going to some exciting places. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Sep 20, 2016

    Speaking of that, I appreciate Harris' sympathetic viewpoint of the Muslim family that is featured in this issue, especially with how hostile the political/cultural climate in our country has become. But as gripping as the opening scene is, I think he'll also lament its timing coming out this week. Hopefully, it doesn't overshadow the larger message"the ugliness, frustration, and pain caused when we make unfair assumptions about large groups of people due the terrible acts of a few psychotic outliers.
