X-Files Comics To Be Reprinted In Anticipation For New Series

Posted Monday, January 28th, 2013 03:55 pm GMT -4 by

If you’re like me, the spirit of X-Files never really died. You may have moved on to ‘Fringe’ or ‘Warehouse 13′, but your The-Truth-Is-Out-There heart stayed with Agents Scully and Agent Mulder.

Well, if you’re like me, there’s good news. There are old adventures to be re-read, and new adventures awaiting our favorite FBI agents. IDW Publishing announced today that it will collect the comics that were published between 1995-2009 in trade paperbacks. Furthermore, they will publish a new series that will continue after the events of the second movie, ‘I Want to Believe’. It’s projected publishing date is June of 2013.

“Few shows have captured the zeitgeist and fans’ imaginations like ‘The X-Files’, and fewer shows still have left people hungry for more in the way this one did,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief.

The back issues to be collected will also include the ’30 Days of Night’ crossover which was published in 2009 in a joint effort with Wildstorm.

So far there hasn’t been any word on who will write the new series, but this ScienceFiction.com writer is hoping for more Frank Spotnitz, regardless of his busy ‘Breaking Bad’ schedule.

  • My thanks to whoever chose to use a cover with The Lone Gunmen for that last pic.

    • Your thanks goes to me. I chose that one specifically for the Byers. Okay, for all of them, but especially the Byers. Also, you can never go wrong with Spotnitz.

  • Really?

    Vince Gilligan is the one with the busy Breaking Bad schedule. Might want to fix that one. Given that Frank Spotnitz is another person entirely.
