When the storyline for ''Believers'' started with the premiere issue of The X-Files: Season 10 comics, we knew that we were in for a wild ride. It's daunting, really daunting, to approach a subject matter such as the mythology of The X-Files.
The fifth issue came out today and with it the last episode of this particular story arc, but instead of giving closure to situations and wrapping everything up in a tight, pretty green bow, Joe Harris and Chris Carter have opened more than half a dozen doors to situations that promise to keep us entertained for a long time to come, leaving us salivating for more.
Well played, Mr. Harris. Well played.

I want to make sure that if you’re reading this review of The X-Files: Season 10 – Issue #4, you have already gone and read it yourself. You have? Yes? Phew, okay, because it’s about to get really “spoilerific” from now on.
I’ll begin my review by talking about the fantastic and varied work that the artists commissioned to develop these covers have been doing. Carlos Valenzuela never disappoints with his artistry to portray the likes of Gillian Anderson with a lot of detail, and neither does Nick Percival, with a composition that captures the subtext of Mulder’s emotional state. This month we also have a fantastic rendition by the Sharp Brothers of the whole X-Files gang being chased by the Great Mutato from The Post Modern Prometheus in Scooby Doo fashion.
One thing is certain about these comics; the people involved are surely having a lot of fun.
If you have been following the series, this is the fourth part out of five in the first case to be developed in this new season. “Believers” tackles the mythology of the show upfront and personal, and in this issue the stakes keep on climbing.
We have to admit to be on the edge of our seat every 3rd week of the month these days; a new issue of The X-Files: Season 10 rolls in and we get to follow the intricate story that the folks at IDW Publishing are delivering by the great talents of Joe Harris and Michael Walsh, watched closely by Chris Carter himself.
This month includes five different covers by Carlos Valenzuela, Nick Percival and a very clever one by The Sharp Brothers that resembles a Scooby Doo scene with all The X-Files gang!
Issue #4 comes out September 18th, and we can tell you that the series continues to be greatly engaging. This is the fourth of a five-part storyline, but the series won't stop there; they're anticipating already a few MOTW stories to come.
But onto the matter at hand: for those of you that want to remain unspoiled until you get your issue tomorrow, either at your local comic store or through Comixology, don't worry, we'll give you a brief evaluation of this month's issue today and a full review tomorrow. We know how our X-Philes like to keep the anticipation brewing!
The story continues discovering more and more details of the conspiracy behind the mysterious government run drilling and the acolytes. The game pieces begin to fit into place as Mulder pursues the investigation in hopes to save Scully from her captors and weâ€™re sure that you will enjoy the nods to classic X-Files situations that made us love the show.
The filmmaker in me pictured a couple of scenes so clearly, continuing with the very cinematic style that they've gotten us used to, and still keeping in place with the comic style that they have adopted for the series. We're very pleased by the way that the story has been laid out, and are indeed intrigued to see how the seeds planted in previous issues come to a full bloom by the time we get to issue #5.
The X-Files: Season 10 "Believers" 4 of 5 is out in stores on September 18th.
Come back tomorrow for a full, spoiler-filled review. Click after the jump for a preview of the first couple of scenes of this month's issue.
We’re excited; it must be Wednesday, and a new issue of The X-Files: Season 10 is out. Story by Chris Carter and Joe Harris, and penned by Harris himself, today’s is the third issue in the new series and continues the cliffhanger exposed in issue #2.
So far, the new comics have been greatly praised by both the comics community and X-philes alike, and the IDW panel at San Diego Comic Con was only one sign of how excited people are about these new stories.
If you haven’t read this month’s comic, we advise you that this review will be heavily filled with spoilers… so proceed with caution.
