The truth may or may not be out there
In celebration of the Season 10 finale on television, I am giving a review of "X-Files: Season 11, Volume 1," a graphic novella based on the show written by Joe Harris. The comic and novel series are not hand in hand books with the show. What happens in one does not necessarily pertain to the other. More of a parallel universe thing. In Season 11, Mulder is once again on the loose with the government on his tail while Scully is chasing after him, saving his butt. A satellite has been shot down/fallen and being searched for. The Peacock family, remember the family that inbred for generations and lived separated from the world, makes an appearance. Gibson, kid with glasses that reads minds, also makes a come back. He is all grown up and somehow involved with the FBI and/or talking animals. Maybe he is the animals, I'm not sure. As per usual when it comes to the X-Files, the reader/viewer is usually confused and yet intrigued. Writing part of the story in their own head to fill in the blanks. The novel is a little hard to follow since it jumps around in storyline and in time, but once the reader becomes accustomed to the flow, it becomes more comfortable. I received this e-graphic novel from www.netgalley.com.
