Ok, so I'll start with the synopsis first.
After years spent in total anonymity former FBI Special Agents Mulder and Scully are revisited by former boss - now FBI Deputy Director Skinner. Skinner brings news that the FBI Database has been compromised with someone/thing accessing information on the old X-Files department. This precedes an attack on Skinner, returning Agents John Doggett and Monica Reyes, and Scully - the latter who finds herself been pursued by a group of robed figures named 'The Acolytes'. She is aided in her escape by another mystery figure calling himself The Deacon.
That's the basic gist of 'Believers' - the five part story that reintroduces the world of The X Files.
Old favourites make a return during the course of the 5 chapters that make up Volume 1 and it really does feel like the TV show. The artwork works and the stories consist of the same level of ambiguity and complexity that we came to appreciate with the series back in the day. All I would say to readers is don't expect a nicely wrapped story where all is explained by the conclusion - quite the opposite in fact! You will leave this book with more questions than you had going into it at Page 1 - in fact each chapter brings increasing levels of complexity.
I love Season 10 and in the absence of any further televised adventures this is a worthy replacement. I hope it continues for some time to come..
