    Outright Geekery - Fabienne Payet Jan 1, 2017

    The comic has a very dark color scheme in the artwork and very dark lines which makes it hard to recognize the characters at times. I am not a fan of the art, but what is not to my liking might be the favorite of someone else. Overall the story was good a bit sparse but that is to be expected from the X-Files. Still I do believe the upcoming issue will be well worth the read. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Dec 28, 2016

    A good, solid end to a story which may become clearer and hold deeper resonance down the line, ‘Came Back Haunted' ends well and establishes plenty of pieces Joe Harris can pull out and use further down the line. You continue to feel a larger mystery is being constructed here by the writer which will pay off down the line dividends, and such storytelling is in the best traditions of The X-Files when the show is firing on all cylinders. Confident this consistently quality will continue into 2017. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Dec 27, 2016

    Joe Harris normally does great work, so hopefully this was a case of the story being a bit too avant-garde and not a sign of things to come for the series. Read Full Review
