    Agents Mulder and Scully are given a missing persons case involving an old friend. Eric Hosteen, a Native American from New Mexico. A character X-Files fans will recognize from season 3 of the TV show. Eric's son, Albert "Al" Hosteen, likes to wander in the desert as his father once did. But he always comes home. Thus, when he didn't come back, his father went looking for him. But Eric Hosteen could not find his son. Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are the only FBI agents that Eric Hosteen trusts. He needs their help to find his son. But there is more going on than anyone has bargained for. Agent Mulder might just get the big, complex conspiracy theory he is looking for.Thanks for reading our latest review of X-Files Annual 2016.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 29, 2016

    This is a fun standalone issue that captures the magic of self-contained X-Files episodes while using recent events and giving things a bit of an update too. X-Files fans should enjoy this one and hopefully, we can see more down the road. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nick Nafpliotis Jul 26, 2016

    If you're X-Files completist and/or don't mind over-paying for a good story with some genuinely hilarious moments and a fun action sequence, then pick this one up. Otherwise, you can save your $8 for the next two issues of the main series, which seems to have finally regained its footing. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Jul 27, 2016

    It's a shame because 'Illegal Aliens' does have some bright moments, some solid characterisation, and the artwork is on the whole pretty decent. It's just the narrative and tonal approaches that jar, and Andrew Aydin's work here lacks the clear throughline Joe Harris gives his comics or truthfully that same sense of real enigma. One could argue that it fits the new mini-series continuity, especially in relation to how Mulder approaches the conspiracy aspects, but it just doesn't have the same wonder, drama or even comedy to make it a truly rewarding reading experience. Possibly one for The X-Files completists only. Read Full Review
