    We The Nerdy - Cameron McFarland Apr 23, 2018

    As many #1 issues will attest, the best is yet to arrive and it can be hard to gauge just where a series will go, but I have faith in Dawson (as well as the art team) to deliver on the promise of a very fun and exciting new episode of theX-Files. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Apr 18, 2018

    The X-Files Case Files is exactly what I love about The X-Files! I never really cared too much about the convoluted overarching story. I just loved the “monster of the week” and Mulder and Scully going on odd adventures. This is exactly what this series is and The X-Files Case Files Florida Man #1 (of 2) is a fantastic start to this new series. The creative team really does a superb job of catching that X-Files feel and bringing it into comic book form. All in all, this was a great first issue and something that any X-Files fan will enjoy!

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 24, 2018

    X-Files Case Files: Florida Man #1 is a fun first entry into this two-part story. The premise is ridiculous, but the book has fun with it. The dialogue is great, the characters are their likable selves, and I look forward to seeing what the weird explanation for this one is. Plus, the art team does great work. This one gets a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Doug Warren Apr 17, 2018

    If you want a well done adaptation of a classic franchise, are a fan of good suspense and mystery, and don't mind if every once in a while the protagonist's face turns into Archer without explanation, I definitely recommend The X-FIles: Case Files. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jonathan O'Neal Apr 23, 2018

    This disappointing comic may send X-Philes to Netflix to revisit better adventures in Florida (s2e20 and s5e4) and to a dictionary for a definition of antimacassar. Read Full Review
