    Loved this! It was like re-watching some of my favorite episodes. This would have been a five star rating but I found some of the illustrations to be messy and unclear. Otherwise an excellent read for any X Files fan :D

    5 Sterne, aber wem gebührt die Ehre?Roy Thomas hat die Pilotfolge sowie die Episoden "Deep Throat", "Squeeze", "Conduit" und "Ice" sehr getreu den Fernsehsendungen nachgestaltet. Beim Lesen kommt das gute alte X-Files-Gefühl auf, genau wie es sein soll. Die Artwork gibt, trotz der unterschiedlichen Zeichenstile, die Stimmung treffsicher wieder, so dass keine Wünsche offen bleiben.Keine?Comic und Fernsehen sind zwei sehr unterschiedliche Medien, und in dieser Hinsicht hat die Idee, eine Fernsehserie 1:1 zu einem Comic zu machen, schon etwas skurriles: warum sollte man es nicht beim Anschauen der Sendungen belassen, wozu das Comic zur Serie?Die Frage wird jeder Leser für sich beantworten müssen, aber da die X-Files die Mystery-Kultserie der 1990er Jahre war, werden wohl die meisten Leser Fanboys sein, und als echter Fan will man das volle Programm.Ich vermute, dass es kaum Leser gibt, die die Sendungen nicht gesehen haben, aber trotzdem hier liegt die Begründung für meine sehr gute Bewertung: das Comic ist vollwertiger X-Files-Genuss, kein Ersatz. Und wer auf UFOs, Verschwörungen und Mystery steht, wird glücklich gemacht.

    This adapts each of the first five episodes from season 1 into single issue stories. The dialogue and in most cases even the panels are taken 1:1 from the script/episode stills. I can't fault the stories (the first five episodes of season 1 are all fantastic, "Ice" being one of my favorites ever), but the art was really messy in parts and felt overall rushed. Maybe that's just what you get from non-mainstream comics from the 90s, but it's the reason I'm detracting one star. Props on Scully's likeness to Gillian Anderson though, they did a great job with her, as they did with Mulder and Deep Throat. To sum it up, they are great adaptations, though it can be argued that such exact (graphic) novelizations of episodes are redundant, at least in this day and age, with streaming services, DVDs and torrents readily available. A great way to revisit the early episodes though!

    An almost perfect translation of the tv episodes to comic format, my main quibble is with how dark the art is, making some parts only intelligible if you have watched the show. Nothing new here, but I like comics and I like X-Files so...

    Reading these stories brings so many memories of the episodes themselves, I can almost hear the lines being spoken. A fun way to re-experience these early episodes.

    Mostly this is a reminder of how great the show was, but there is some spotty artwork and some rushed storytelling.
