The X-Files created by Chris Carter

This is the origin story for the X-Files. Not Mulder’s origin or Scully’s but the FBI section itself.

Issue 1 introduced us to the mystery of a strange man who passes messages to the FBI via intermediaries. A current FBI informant is passing details from a Mr Zero and the first case for the X-Files was in 1946 regarding messages passed to the FBI from a Mr Xero.

Issue 1 started in the present day with Mulder and Scully, this issue picks up the story in 1946 with Bing Ellison and Millie Ohio.

Two artists and two styles of art. I really like the 1946 artwork, that’s not to say I don’t like the modern day art. The point is thought has been put in to how this book looks and in my opinion it looks good.

The plot is intriguing and very fitting with the TV series, in my review of issue one I stipulated it was most like the early series and I stick to that. The latter series drifted away from the real mysteries and too far in to conspiracies.
