IDW continues their summer tradition of releasing a one-shot X-Files Annual with a new story set around the 2016 revival series. Penned by Andrew Aydin (the U.S. politician and writer of March - the story of congressman and civil rights activist John Lewis) and drawn by Greg Scott (The X-Files: Year Zero) and Wes Dzioba (Star Wars), the story combines some subtle X-Files nostalgia with modern-day conspiracy theories and good old-fashioned alien hunting in the New Mexican desert. Read after the jump for our review of "Illegal Aliens".
The X-Files #4, “Ishmael” - part one, deals with a dark family secret, long kept close to the vest by Scully. The past comes back to haunt her first in her dreams and later, in real life, as her father is toppled from his pedestal and a paranormal threat is raised. I raised a skeptibrow™ï¸ or two regarding the secret, but I have nothing but respect for the way it was ultimately handled by Joe Harris and Co.

The new home video release of the new season of The X-Files has been out and about since June 14th. We’ve been really excited about the new chapter of the collection, not only for the possibility of binge watching it as much as our hearts desire, but also because we had the incredible privilege to be a tiny, little part of it.
But we’ll get to that. First, let’s walk through the goods included in The X-Files: The Event Series Bluray and DVD.
In this month’s issue of The X-Files, we conclude the two-parter, “Dia De Muertos” or “Day of The Dead”. At the end of part one, Mulder had set off in an attempt to find Enrico, while Scully worried about the young boy’s traumatized sister. Find out what happens next after the jump in our recap of issue three.
