    This was a great ending to the first story arc and really sets us up for more X-Files fun in the comings months. I will keep reading, because I want to believe. Read Full Review

    So really, this issue suggests that Season 10 is successfully blending the old and the new. It certainly reads like an X-Files tale. The dialogue is spot-on, with the characters sounding so much like their TV selves it's impossible not to picture David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson speaking the lines. And Michael Walsh's art captures the essence of the characters and their shadowy world, even if certain panels can be a little more sparse or plain than I'd like. This opening arc has done exactly what it needed to as far as reestablishing this world. Now the real fun can begin. Read Full Review

    That feels exciting, but I wonder just how much can be pulled off here without it crumbling the overall interest in the series. It's either too much that ends it, or not enough that keeps you from really feeling like it's getting anywhere. The conclusion to this arc is certainly tantalizing with what it offers from what Scully sees and I liked the arc overall for what it introduced by going on about the Acolytes, the change in the nature of the dynamic, the Smoking Man and more. There feels like a lot more weight here, but also a sense that this is one of the bigger beats of the tenth season and that we'll get a lighter touch for awhile before it gets serious again. But what it does bring here is certainly enough to get me a lot more interested in the other published works to see where the creative team will be taking things. Read Full Review

    The truth is out there - but it might not be the truth you're looking for, as this series ends its first arc a bit more shakily than I'd hoped. Read Full Review

    If this first arc is any indication Season 10 is off to an incredible start. Hopefully with a little more in the way of resolution the next arc will cement this series as a necessary read. Read Full Review
