If you’re catching this week’s reunion of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully on The X-Files, don’t forget that the story of these agents of the unexplained has been going strong each month in the pages of IDW Publishing’s The X-Files: Season 11. Below we have a preview of the next installment available in comic book stores everywhere tomorrow.
For the record, the comic book series is considered canon, and the truth is they’ve earned it. Show creator Chris Carter is executive producer of the series. The writers and artists know the characters and the story. Following right after the events in the second big screen follow-up to the TV series, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, the comic books are as good as the original series and even better than the movies and the first of this new TV series. What does modern technology, a world of the Android phones, and the political climate resurfacing Cold War Era issues mean for Mulder and Scully’s quest for the truth? What new secrets will be behind all the unexplained events they encounter and all the conspiracies?
Writer Joe Harris, artist Matthew Dow Smith, and colorist Jordie Bellaire provide a familiar look and feel for both the actors behind the characters (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson) and the often dark and mysterious settings for the series that fans will appreciate. Look for a photo cover variant and fun alternate cover to Issue #6, also (pictured below).
