The X-Files writer/producer Frank Spotnitz returns with an untold tale from Mulder and Scully's first stint with the FBI. When a man returns from the dead with a warning for his wife, the agents investigate and cross paths with a very peculiar priest. And in the second story, Cerebus creator Dave Sim writes his first-ever The X-Files story and first scripted licensed work in... forever? with "Talk to the Hand," a nightmarish tale starring a sleeping Dana Scully!

    Comic Bastards - Erik McAlister Apr 16, 2014

    So my official, final word is that I liked it. It wasn't amazing, it didn't blow me away, but it did make up for the series that is currently on the shelves. Of course, it's not that I think that the current series is bad, but it just needs a new format. Something that keeps me caring about the endings of each arc. But I'm also not eager to pay $7.99 every month either. Maybe The X-Files Season 10 could be bi-weekly. I would probably be on board for that. Actually, I definitely would. There's some free advice, IDW. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado Apr 17, 2014

    Overall, X-Files Annual 2014 is an uneven attempt — but thanks to Dave Sim's work, it's one of the best comics of the week, too. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ben Penfold-Marwick Apr 16, 2014

    X-Files fans have dealt with much worse looking comic books than this before in order to read the adventures of their two FBI heroes. Its not perfect, but it does have an interesting style about it. The writing is solid, and while this isnt the best X-Files story Ive ever read, it is an authentic one, a great way to celebrate one more year in comic book form, and a great jumping on point for fans of the television series.

    Florida Geek Scene - Peter Schmeiser Apr 16, 2014

    If there were a solid continuity to X-Files comics, Id say skip it, but if you can tolerate the artwork, pull this book, and enjoy the story without the visual elements. Read Full Review
