The X-Files: Annual 2015

XFiles_Annual2015

This is a most excellent graphic novel, and even if you have not been following the X-Files graphic series, it is one that you can pick up and enjoy without knowing any back-story.

The annual is primarily a nice, self-contained tale about Mulder and Scully attending a high school reunion to investigate the disappearance of one of the students years back. There are some great twists and it is a fun, thought-provoking, and well-written story. It has all the charm and mystery of a classic X-Files episode. I’ll say no more, because to do so would be to spoil it, and I for one hate spoilers.

As an added bonus, this book contains a black-and-white excerpt from the upcoming Season 11 arc. I cannot help but wonder if the new arc will tie into the upcoming reboot of the television series. On one hand, it would be interesting if they did; but conversely, it would be nice to see a fresh start for the TV series. Either way, I will be psyched. I am a proud X-phile and will be happy either way.

Anyway, check out this issue and let me know what you think. Cheers!
