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.

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Aug 12, 2017

    Though very much still in the process of establishing mysteries, conspiracies and plot points, Dog Days of Summer continues to be a strong prequel to the events of The X-Files for our intrepid FBI agents as children. Lovely, bright, expressive panels from Corin Howell & Chris Fenoglio equally add to the tone and feel of Dow Smith & Houser's story as the narrative wheels turn. It continues to feel totally in step with the strong first run and increasingly you realise, once complete, this is going to make a delightful, continuing story over numerous trade runs. Essential for X-Philes and beyond, especially children. Read Full Review

    Tweens and teens who like Stranger Things will like the story of kid detectives, but hardcore X-Files fans will be left quite cold. Read Full Review
