Back in 2008, Insight Editions published "The Complete X-Files: Behind the Series, The Myths and The Movies" - a large, hardback book that explored The X-Files in glorious, full-colour detail. Following the broadcast of Season 10 earlier this year, "The Complete X-Files" was no longer quite so ‘complete.’ Now, however, the book has been re-issued as the Revised and Updated Edition to include all the latest additions to the X-Files universe, so we took a look at the new edition.
The original book spanned the entire history of the show, from its inception through the release of I Want to Believe, and was filled with photos, behind the scenes information, quotes, and reminiscences from the people involved with the show including Gillian, David, Chris, and countless writers, directors, producers and more. Although known to be riddled with typos, the book remained an interesting and beautiful book for Philes who wanted to revisit the show.
Last month, Joe Harris began a journey down a dark and mysterious path. This month, he continues laying the groundwork and starts revealing some secrets from this intriguing case. “Came Back Haunted - Part Two” is the second in a five-part series and looks like it could be shaping up to something pretty cool. Hit the jump for the spoilerific recap and review.
Issue number two of "Origins" continues the separate stories of 12-year-old Fox and 13-year-old Dana as they investigate mysterious and tragic goings-on around their childhood homes.
When we left young Fox in the woods at the end of issue #1, he was face-to-face with a bright, possibly paranormal, light. Issue #2 opens with the discovery that the source of the light is nothing more than a flashlight. Unfortunately for Fox, the light is being held by his father. Bill Mulder takes the boys home and reprimands Fox for being out in the woods at night, softening slightly on hearing that his son was following people into the woods in the belief that they might be the same ones who took his sister several months earlier. He quickly sends his son to bed after banning him from hanging out with the other boys.
“Came Back Haunted” kicks off what promises to be an exciting ride in part one of a five-part series. Though mainly a setup for what’s to come, the issue is fast-paced and has a foot placed solidly in current events, tethering the forthcoming myth arc to reality.
