Episode eight of Better Call Saul, “Fifi” was in my opinion, the best episode of the entire series. The second season has shown the story really hit its stride; it’s confident, it’s witty, and it’s full of emotional impact and impending doom. It’s every bit as good as it’s predecessor, Breaking Bad, and in some cases, I might even say… Better. The writers keep you on your toes, never let you feel confident on who to root for and never let you get comfortable. Better Call Saul is a true character piece in a field of fast-paced action dramas and I couldn’t be happier for the reprieve.

Previously on The X-Files: Season 11 #7 - Mulder and Scully had briefly met at a magnetite extraction mine in Utah, before he got ambushed by Gibson and she was taken by faceless aliens working with and lead by AD Morales.
Mulder had taken one of the aliens as his hostage and in the midst of escaping he got intercepted by AD Skinner who was being controlled by Gibson, telepathically. Meanwhile, Scully had woken up at a hospital in the outskirts of Salt Lake City. Morales gave her the 411 on her involvement with the faceless alien faction, making it clear that the agent was at the mercy of her orders.

If you were an X-Phile back during the original TV run of The X-Files, you may have bought The Official X-Files Magazine. Published originally by Manga, then by Titan, the magazine ran from 1995 to 2002 and brought together interviews, features, competitions, and comic strips, along with other features you’d expect from a show magazine. The magazines were fantastic for fans back in the day, and make for great reading today when we can cast a nostalgic eye back over them, yet if you are new to the show you have probably never read an issue. Throughout 2016, Titan Comics is releasing three volumes of The X-Files: The Official Collection, collating many of the best features from the magazines.
