Bernard is a decorated state policeman in love with his partner. But their romance is brutally cut short when both die following a high-speed pursuit and fiery car crash involving the Lone Gunmen.

    A terrific story brought down by the art. Read Full Review

    This has been an interesting series so far. The tour of some of IDW’S biggest names works in the context of this story and with many of the series in their own right. Unfortunately I just wish they had made the issues (especially this one) longer to give the story room to breathe and not force the plot to the point of cliché. This is one for the fans of the Lone Gunmen and those who want to complete this event but otherwise you can find better issues within this series to fulfil your Conspiracy quota. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Mar 12, 2014

    This isn't a bad issue overall. In fact, it was mildly enjoyable. But unless you're a really big fan of The Crow, you won't be missing much of the overall story by not picking it up. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - William Mercado Mar 12, 2014

    The writing was bare and wonky (who talks like that?) and the art felt just as rushed. The titles from both original entities were merged blatantly and haphazardly simply to draw interest (and cash) with what feels like no real intent to do the X-Files or The Crow any justice. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Errick "Mr. Enigma" Perry Mar 18, 2014

    Ultimately, this comic book story is missing both the legendary flair of undead rocker Eric Draven as The Crow and FBI agents Scully and Mulder and falls short with an otherwise intriguing premise. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Mar 12, 2014

    This is a story with a lot of promise, but it doesn't quite click as a tie-in to the Lone Gunmen Conspiracy story. There's only one issue left, but there's not a huge carryover from here to the finale. Tipton and Malhotra have a good two or three issue story, but unfortunately they had to cram it all into one.

    Big Comic Page - Jules Boyle Mar 11, 2014

    It's all been building up to the big finale and so far, this is the only mid-step IDWhave taken along the way. Fingers crossed they pull it off, because with the exception of The Crow, this series has been a joy to read. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Max Delgado Mar 12, 2014

    The X-Files: Conspiracy: The Crow doesn't feel like a major contribution to this mega-arc. And might be worth missing. Read Full Review
