OK, I admit it, I’m a geek and I love “The X-Files.” I even bought the movies. So when I read on the Huffington Post that an X-Files comic series is in the works, well, my geek heart fluttered. (Click here to read the article.)
The new series continues where the last film left off and is being dubbed the 10th Season. Joe Harris, the author of the series, explains how he plans to tie the X-Files in with current events.
“We’re going to try and usher ‘The X-Files’ into a new age. We’ve got WikiLeaks, now. Drone warfare, the Patriot Act and challenges related to the government and influence from outside forces, corporations and lobby groups,” Harris said. “America has challenges, problems both new and old, related to how it functions, as well as just who it really functions for. I think the ‘X-Files’ mythos will fit nicely into these chaotic, interconnected times.”
I am pretty excited about this and will be watching for the first issue. In the meantime, I think I will stream some of the original episodes on Netflix, just for kicks and giggles.
