In my previous review of this series, I made the observation that these comics are the equivalent of watching The Lone Gunmen show. This latest edition convinced me even more; its comedic timing reminds me of some of the funniest episodes of the short-lived series.

For those that have been following the Season 10 comics, you'll appreciate the familiar strokes of Michael Walsh, ink by Adam Gorham and colors by Jordie Bellaire. The X-Files: Conspiracy - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was written by Ed Brisson and edited by Bobby Curnow and Denton Tipton. Covers by Miran Kim, Michael Walsh, and Brian Corroney and Brian Miller.

My review follows after the jump. Beware of Spoilers.

 

 

 

 

I love that time of the month when I get new X-Files comics; I particularly loved it this time around. The X-Files: Season 10 - #9 had me so enthralled that it allowed me to forget that there’s a civil war in the making in my home country. I won’t bore you with those details though, because we’re here to talk X-Files, and boy, will we.


“Chitter” - the 9th issue of Season 10 - tackles you to the ground with a teaser that is sure to make you squirm, and which continues to speak of Joe Harris’ gory imaginary, and Greg Scott’s ability to put to image a story that has nothing to envy the TV and Film version of The X-Files. Perhaps this is what I liked the most about this issue, but I digress. This is a one shot that is more loaded than perceived at a first glance, especially for those that have followed closely along with the William storyline.


This issue was written by Joe Harris, with art by Greg Scott, colors by Art Lyon, letters by Robbie Robbins, edited by Denton Tipton and executive produced by, of course, Chris Carter. The regular cover was designed by Carlos Valenzuela, the RI cover is by menton3 and an additional subscription cover features a picture from Frank Spotnitz’ episode “Daemonicus”.


More of this review and a lot of spoilers after the jump.

 

The X-Files: Conspiracy #1 - Part 2 - Ghostbusters continues the storyline started in the premiere of this new series, but with an obvious new guest star in this crossover. For anyone reading "Conspiracy", I think one of the things you should take into consideration, in my opinion, is that this is the equivalent of having The Lone Gunmen TV show as a comic book series.

When The X-Files: Conspiracy #1 - Part 1 and its following companions were announced, I have to admit to being worried. Seriously, I’m being honest here. I know it’s not the first time that the X-Files universe has collided with other franchises or even other shows, but it’s probably the first time that it was lined up to realms that were so different from the universe created by Chris Carter.

And perhaps that’s the thing; aside from the previous Thirty Days of Night crossover, the instances where X-Files had mixed with other “breeds” happened to be events where the other mate was also 1013 property.

Now, don’t get confused; these new issues do not belong in the same universe as The X-Files: Season 10, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not pulling all the stops to dive into the X-Files world in a novel way.
