With hints of a new conspiracy bubbling to the surface, and whispers of a new "Syndicate" organization in the wings, a secret from the past poses a threat that only Agents Mulder and Scully can tackle. But what does the former fixit man-and long-deceased informant-named "X" have to do with it?

    This series is much stronger when Michael Walsh is doing the art. It is a perfect nostalgia trip for lovers of the TV series. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ben Simms Jan 10, 2014

    What The X Files Season 10 lacks in innovation, it certainly makes up in intrigue. With a universe this rich to play in, Harris is doing a great job keeping the stories streamlined for the twenty two page format. There is much room to improve, but the progression to perfection is proving to hold nearly as much quality and charm as its small screen predecessor ever did. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Jan 8, 2014

    It's no surprise, but THE X-FILES SEASON 10 #8 is yet another engaging issue of this series. Thanks to some dedicated"and talented"creatives involved, this series is a success and one I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to not only comic fans, but dedicated and hardcore X-Philes. Many may have fretted that the show has been off the air for so long, but this book truly scratches that itch, and continues to give us a great reason to catch up with Mulder and Scully.

    The X-Files has always been in this state of near progress. Were always treated to startling truths about the past that dont really change anything. For this series to truly succeed some forward momentum needs to be introduced that challenges and changes these characters. Far too often things are hastily dealt with and taken care of in tried and true methods. Harris, I dare you to give me a failure, show me what happens when nothing goes right. Put The X-Files program in danger again give me some real stakes. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Joe Morrison Jan 7, 2014

    As a continuation of a beloved television show this comic ticks a lot of boxes. Devotees of the show get to see key moments in the early lives of popular characters such as Deep Throat and Mister X, while newcomers get to see Mulder and Scully find their feet within the FBI. Not quite Xcellent (sorry) but still very good. Read Full Review

    So, even with what I felt was a very abrupt change in the story line, I'm still liking the direction of the series. One wonders if the reason for all these short story lines is that they are all going to weave together in the future. The only way to find out is to keep reading – which I'll certainly be doing.

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Jan 8, 2014

    I still don't think that Walsh's pencils for this series are a good fit, but his art is good. The dialogue between Mulder and Scully is great and feels just like it should (as it has for most of the series). The story, on the other hand, is a very mixed bag. But despite some very serious flaws in the beginning, it looks like we might have a mythology arc that could end up being a lot of fun. Read Full Review
