This issue is the third part of the “Elders” episode and really draws you deeper into the tale. It draws on key mythology associated with the X-Files while augmenting the saga with new layers of conspiracy and science fiction. In addition, the issue incorporates cyclical symbolism, which adds another level of complexity to the greater story and works very well, in my humble opinion.
But if Mulder’s own quixotic crusade has revealed anything over these years, it must have shown you… life is but a cycle… with a new beginning following each and every end.
I am very curious how all this will play out. I’m also curious as to whether Chris Carter will somehow tie this graphic series into the X-Files television reboot that was announced. I guess all we can do is follow the rabbit hole and see where it all leads. Thanks to reading, and feel free to share your thoughts.
