The X-files trailer 2016

We were getting along fine, reading our issues of one of the best tie-in series around, The X-Files Season 10 and The X-Files Season 11 from IDW Publishing.  For the record, these series are considered canon, and the truth is they’ve earned it.  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.  But wait, The X-Files is coming back to TV?  What’s next?  A Firefly series?

The first full trailer from Fox (the network, not Mulder) has all the best feel from the original.  It’s David Duchovny’s same craggy Fox Mulder, Gillian Anderson’s same inquisitive Dana Scully, and the cool, calm, and collected Mitch Pileggi as Skinner.  Finally, something to be excited about that is not Star Wars Episode VII!

Plus, the series, which is slated for only six episodes, draws in genre favorites Robbie Amell (The Flash) and Lauren Ambrose (Coma) as new agents.  And even Joel McHale (The Soup, Community) has a main role in the series.

Enough waiting!  Check out the trailer:

X-Files-Season-10 smoking man

This one is for those who still want to believe…

Seven issues in and The X-Files Season 10 is looking to be one of the best extensions of a TV series ever to make it to comic book form.  Like the successful Buffy the Vampire Slayer Seasons 8 and 9, IDW Publishing’s The X-Files Season 10 knows all the elements that made the original series loved by fans and it has carried those elements forward to make readers feel like Fox Mulder and Dana Scully never left.  And everyone else you loved from the show has returned: Agents Doggett and Reyes, The Lone Gunmen, Assistant Director Skinner, and The Smoking Man all have been re-introduced in Season 10.

X-Files Season 1 hardcover

Ex-FBI agents Mulder and Scully are married and living under assumed names.  Skinner returns to let them know that an FBI database was hacked and the X-Files may have been part of the hack.  Then agents start dropping like flies, and Scully and Doggett are missing.   Who is Mulder going to turn to?  How about The Lone Gunmen?  New conspiracies, yet familiar dialogue doesn’t miss a beat in re-creating each character, thanks to writer Joe Harris.  And it helps that Michael Walsh’s renderings of the key characters matches the actors that originally made them famous.  Walsh’s style and mood are exactly what an X-Files comic needs, and Harris really gets the playful Mulder banter with Scully just right.

Much like Joss Whedon continued Buffy the Vampire Slayer in graphic novel form where the TV series left off, The X-Files creator Chris Carter will return to oversee the continued exploits of FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in a new comic book series from IDW Publishing.  Fans of The X-Files will see the nine series and two movies move forward with The X-Files: Season 10 coming June 19, 2013.
