Throughout the 90’s was The X-Files a shows that transcended strong cult following and went on to become a pop-culture phenomenon. Screening between 1993 and 2002, the show carefully crafted science-fiction, horror and mystery to create an engaging watch each week. This week will see the return of the X-Files with The X-Files Season 10 – a continuation of the television series in comic book form.
Written by Joe Harris (Great Pacific) and with art by Michael Walsh (Comeback), The X-Files Season 10 will continue the official canon of the TV shows and the films and will be set after The X-Files: I Want to Believe. Plotting with Joe Harris will be, X-Files creator, Chris Carter who will also be acting as executive producer on the comic series. With this in mind, this comic should be on every X-Files fan’s radar.
In interviews Joe Harris has stated that season 10 will re-establish the classic paradigm of the earlier seasons. This will involve Mulder and Scully investigating “X-Files” for the FBI, an organisation that they can not totally trust. The quest for “the Truth” will still be a big factor of the series and Mulder and Scully will be investigating many paranormal phenomena, including extraterrestrial.
Additionally Harris also mentioned that The X-Files Season 10 will reflect many things that are concerns in 2013…
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. 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.
The X-Files Season 10 is out this week in at all good comic book stores and digitally on the 19th of June.
