Before the FBI, before the X-Files, they were just two teenagers in search of the truth. On Martha's Vineyard, a strange encounter with a deaf girl sends 13-year-old Fox Mulder on the hunt for a mysterious signal. While in San Diego, young Dana Scully looks into a plane crash somehow tied to the man she helped put in jail. Two kids, two mysteries, one conspiracy that threatens the future of humanity.

    This is a brilliant return to Mulder & Scully's origins. Jody and Matthew have written fun adventures that offer so many mysteries. This is a perfect comic for new & old fans of the X-files or anyone looking for a fun Stranger Things-esque story. Read Full Review

    While I do not think this is enough to fill the void fans have with no current show, it is enough to gain more followers! Read Full Review

    I'm excited to see how the X-Files Origins story progresses. I'll eat up anything X-Files (yes, even that dreadful second movie), and The X-Files Origins: Dog Days Of Summer #1 has done a good job of hooking me in. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Jun 21, 2017

    Once again boasting colourful, expressive panels from Chris Fenoglio & Corin Howell which retain an X-Files flavour while equally feeling summery, bright and youthful, Dog Days of Summer is a great start to a sequel series completely in step with what came before; indeed once the run is through, no doubt both the first & second seasons of Origins will be enjoyed as part of a continuing tapestry. If the story mechanics can really kick in now and match the strong characterisation of young Mulder & Scully, this sequel could well eclipse its already charming predecessor. Read Full Review
