Our look back at the X-Files comics published by Topps in the mid-1990s continues with issue #5: "Firebird Part Two of Three". Last issue we left Mulder in a destroyed military complex with a monster that looks like something Steve Jackson might draw on a new Munchkin card. Find out what happens next after the jump.

Ah, the things we do for love. Again, my final reaction to "Bingo" is what it has been to all of the episodes barring last week's Mike-centric piece. Poor poor Jimmy. There was so very much right with Monday's episodes of Better Call Saul, but one thing a little wrong, which somewhat soured my reception of yet another excellent episode of my new favorite series. Thematically the show hit all the right notes. Visually, it outdid itself. Continuity-wise, there has been a hint and a nudge but perhaps a scene hit the cutting room floor, and I would have liked a little more clarification.
Hit the jump for the full recap and review.
After a very long and involuntary hiatus, The X-Files: Season 10 is back with its 21st issue. "Elders", the first part of five, kicks off in high gear with a teaser that makes it clear times have changed for the forces in the shadows.
