Subgenre: Science fiction, mystery
From the book's description:
"When a blue-collar worker from New Jersey passes prophetic messages to the FBI from a mysterious “Mr. Zero,” Mulder is convinced it is the same otherworldly entity that contacted the FBI through a suburban housewife in the 1940s."
As in other X-Files volumes I have read, this one really gets to the essence of the show in terms of plot and story. The sense of unease and things being vague and unsettled is alive and well in this comic. Just when you think there is an answer, you get more questions popping up. The story does have a great ending that sets up for the next adventure. If you are a fan of the show, this is certainly a comic for you. It takes you deep into the the X-Files origins. The comic provided a good mystery and an unsettling character in Mr. Zero. It was like one of the better episodes of the show.
I do highly recommend it, and I think it makes a good choice for public and academic libraries with graphic novel collections.
I am giving it the full 5 out of 5 stars.
