Booknote: The X-Files, Season 10, Vol. 1

Joe Harris,, The X-Files, Season 10, Vol. 1. San Diego, CA: IDW, 2013. ISBN: 9781613777510.

If you enjoyed the show when it was running, this is a nice trip back to the world of aliens and high conspiracies. Mulder and Scully have gone their separate way. Now, someone is after Scully, and it may be connected to a child she had previously. That's only the beginning. The strength of this comic is how well it captures the feel of the series. However, that can also be a weakness. If you did not follow the series consistently, there are things you will miss. Even if you did follow the series, which I did, if it has been a while, again, you may end up with questions of how we got from here to there. Still, the volume was a quick read with adequate art. I really liked it, so I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars.

Disclosure note: This is where I tell you that I read this as an e-book provided by the publisher via NetGalley for review purposes. The idea was for me to provide a fair and honest review. There has been no compensation. There, we keep The Man appeased once more.
