Quick! Name the first fanvid you ever saw. Can you? If you're lucky, like me, the first fanvid you ever saw was a good one and it got you started down a rabbit hole you've yet to emerge from. For me, it was "Injection" by Fox Estacado and it wasn't just good, it was amazing. I stumbled across it on MySpace and from that moment on, I was obsessed. So much so, that after I had replayed the vid 500 or so times, it sent me on an X-Files rewatch that to this day, hasn't really ended.
With ten seasons, two movies and countless stories through fiction and comics books, it’s surprising that The X-Files universe has somehow managed to avoid tackling the JFK assassination apart from a brief mention in a less than loved original run episode. Not a franchise to shy away from conspiracy theories, the mother of all conspiracy theories is finally getting its due respect in the latest from IDW Publishing with The X-Files: JFK Disclosure, a two-part special written by Denton J. Tipton and with art by Menton3. It’s all timed to tie into this week’s public release of the until-now sealed files related to Kennedy’s assassination and we’re excited to see what spin this team takes on it.
