    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Dec 7, 2016

    One hopes The X-Files: Origins may not be a one-time thing, on the basis of how well Dow Smith, Houser and the team at IDW have presented the youthful origins of Mulder & Scully, with some gorgeous artwork which captures that youthful exuberance as well as the show's dark and sinister tone. While it does close off their original investigations here, enough doors and character beats are left open for the writers to further explore down the road, which hopefully will further connect to established show canon from the series. A great finish to a mini-series which has added a delightful extra shade to the myriad X-Files universe. Read Full Review
