    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado Nov 26, 2013

    After what felt like an uneven inaugural arc, issue #6 offers a delightful return to the X-Files we all know and love. Creepy, innovative and just plain fun to read. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ben Penfold-Marwick Nov 26, 2013

    While the later seasons of the television series and the second film were watchable for hard core fans, they would have been terrible introductions to what was once a fantastic, eerie, and fun franchise. The X-Files: Season 10 has given Scully and Mulder the treatment they deserve and gives fans some decent content that they have been missing for some time. Issue 6 sees the X-Files officially reopened and is a good jumping on point for old and new fans alike. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jeremy James Nov 27, 2013

    If you are a fan of The X-Files, this will be an issue you can get excited about. The "Host" story was such a strong moment in the television series, and it is really cool to see where IDW is taking it in this comic adaptation. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Jimbus_Christ Nov 27, 2013

    With a little more attention to overarching plot and finding a way to create a deeper sense of danger this book could propel itself into must read territory, but as fans of the series will attest the only danger in these pages are for the supporting characters of the arc, which isn't enough for me.

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Nov 27, 2013

    A cookie cutter episode of the X-Files can still make for a damn tasty cookie, especially with this creative team. While the plot's familiarity may seem a little stale, Harris continues to do an excellent job giving Mulder and Scully the exact same voice and banter that we would expect not only from the characters we knew before, but as they would be at this point in their relationship. Excluding the scene from the first issue when Scully started crying like Claire Danes in 'Homeland', he's been about as spot on with the dialogue and character actions/reactions as you could possibly hope for.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Dec 1, 2013

    A pretty good Monster-of-the-Week story (that will be told over two months). It's entertaining, but the art change doesn't do the issue a service. Read Full Review
