    X-Files Deviations 2017 could and should become your go to example for how great comics with all-female creative teams can be. Briskly plotted and firmly rooted in Mytharc lore, Amy Chu's script drops us in a world not unlike the one we knew on Fox all those years ago and promptly starts to mix things up. The art team of Silva Califano, Elena Casagrande, and Monica Kubina keep pace with Chu's script every step of the way, applying honed pencils and colors to the one-shot, giving it a keen visual edge. The 2017 crop of Deviations may be just starting, but X-Files Deviations 2017 starts them off strong. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Mar 3, 2017

    Though the ending suggests more are on the way, I'd be happy if this was the end of The X-Files Deviations, in truth. Beyond the one-line gimmick of Samantha being the Mulder character, it's not a concept which really feels like it has legs, certainly none which have the ability to tell an inventive, original version of the show we know so well. For anyone who wants a greatest hits, fill your boots. If you want some more subtlety and intrigue, stick with what Joe Harris is doing on the revival run. Read Full Review

    If the Deviations one-shots are going to continue as an annual publication, then why not go out on a limb and try something unexpected? As it stands now, the title is barely worth a place on your pull list"or the pull list of you from any alternate dimensions. Read Full Review
