The X-Files (Issues 0-1)

Agents Mulder and Scully come to comic books in a faithful translation of the beloved ’90s TV show. Frank Spotnitz, who wrote many of the original episodes as well as the recent X-Files: I Want to Believe movie, writes the first few issues of the comic, which maintains the tone and look of the series, right down to each issue starting with an illustrated take on the original opening titles. In the first couple of issues, Mulder and Scully encounter a creature that possesses bodies and a shady corporation developing bioweapons for the government. The comic version is actually supposed to take place somewhere between the show’s second and fifth season, which allows for ”monster-of-the-week” type stories without all the baggage of the later seasons, and lets the writers utilize later-deceased characters such as The Lone Gunmen. The potential hindrance of setting the comic in the past is that it might prove tricky to attempt long conspiracy-type story arcs without messing with the established X-Files continuity. But for now, X-Philes who were disappointed by the series’ final seasons and I Want to Believe will enjoy this nostalgic visit to The X-Files’ golden age.
