This month in The X-Files: Year Zero, #5 Karl Kesel brings the series to a satisfying close, answering all the pertinent questions while leaving the door open for much more should IDW choose to continue the series. I, for one, sincerely hope they do. Solid storytelling and gorgeous art has been the cornerstone of this limited-run series and issue five is no exception.
Read below the jump for the full synopsis and review.
â€œTalismansâ€ is Scorpionâ€™s 10th episode of the season. It is also the episode where I decide that either Santora reads my bucket list of requests for this show or we share the same sensibilities. I am by no means saying Iâ€™m at the same level of these writers, but I will go on to say that it is rare for me to say that Iâ€™m this satisfied by the episode sequence of any show these days. It is a solid hour of fun entertainment.
On to the recap, and review, after the jump.
If you thought that you’d seen it all in the world of the unexplained, you’d better think again. Abduct, a new movie starring William B. Davis and directed by Ilyas Kaduji, promises to bring a new take into the world of supernatural stories and more.
The movie, still in post-production, is a fictional, supernatural, horror thriller set in Texas. The story is based on Crystal, a mysterious Texas orphan with a horrible and tragic history. Her parents ritually abuse her. One night, strange lights and sounds appear outside their home. Crystal blacks out and awakens to find them murdered. The girl is haunted by their deaths. Years pass. Now a young adult, Crystal flees her orphanage in a paranoid belief that otherworldly forces are after her, a supernatural terror that has stalked her since childhood and that follows her no matter where she flees.
Meanwhile, charismatic paranormal radio host Ridley Kay, is passionate about exploring the nature of phenomena like this. For some paranoid groups, the fate of the Earth depends on humanity exposing occult secrets to the light: UFO's and alien abductions, demons and spirit possession, the Shadow People and sleep paralysis, government conspiracy, mind control, and time travel. These dark subjects plague thousands of people across the world. For Kay it’s all fun and games until Crystal enters his life.
People get hurt as mysterious government agents seek to take Crystal into custody. No matter how far the young woman flees, sinister people in black hunt her… but why?
