Product Description

From the Back Cover

When an Elephant runs amok in Idaho, Agent Fox Mulder picks up the scent of aliens at work – and takes his partner, Dana Scully, with him on a trail that gets hotter at every savage twist and startling turnabout.

The trail leads them to a tiger that melts through iron bars to spread terror with tooth and claw. To a gorilla that tries to reveal the hidden horror haunting the local zoo. And to the dark secrets of those who tend the animals – for their own deadly purposes.

The cage doors of doom are swinging open – to a sinister safari from outer space. Can Mulder and Scully stop it? Or will they themselves become its prey?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fans who miss the show...get this! 14 May 2011
Format:Paperback
This graphic novel is an absolute must for any x-files fan who has been missing the series since it ended.
The great stories, including one by the mighty Frank Spotnitz, are reminders of how good the series and the characters were, and the artwork brings the stories to life as if they were tv episodes. The tone, colouration and viewpoints are all true to the style of the show, and the little in-jokes and details found in the pictures are wonderfully rewarding for both the long-time fan and the newbie. I began reading as soon as the book arrived, and am now reading it trough for a fourth time. Fantastic stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars e-X-cellence. 1 May 2012
By STEVEN
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brilliant, 'wildstorms comics' (a devision of DC comics) 7 issue (4 complete stories) 'The X-Files' just shows/reminds you how good the x-files was/is. The X Files - The Complete Collector's Edition [DVD] Each stand-alone story, written by the TV's shows own Frank Spotnitz along side Marv Wolfman (best known for lengthy runs on Tomb of Dracula Tomb Of Dracula Vol. 2, creating 'Blade' for Marvel Comics, Blade/Blade II/Blade Trinity [DVD]and The New Teen Titans for DC Comics The New Teen Titans - Omnibus (Vol. 1) and Doug Moench (notable for his Batman work Batman - Knightfall (Vol.1 Collected Edition) and as the creator of Black Mask, Moon Knight and Deathlok Deathlok: The Destroyer TPB (Marvel Knights) and Illustrated by Brian Denham (Angel: After the Fall, Angel: After the Fall: Premiere Edition), read and most importantly feel, just like best the original show had to offer. No self respecting fan of the X-Files should not have this collection on there bookshelf. Fingers crossed for a new movie and you should also check out the equally eXcellent and FANGtastic crossover The X-Files / 30 Days of Night because after you read these tales you realise just how much you miss the show and wish for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read - shame about the timeline! 14 Feb 2013
By Shel
Format:Paperback
Some great art and some good old school X Files writing makes a good book but the muddled up timeline stops it from being a truly great book. X Files scribe Frank Spotnitz (who writes two of the comics included) stated in an interview that this was set "somewhere between Season 2 and Season 5" yet one of the comics has a 1GB USB flashdrive (itself probably not common place in 2001 when the series ended!) and one of them has the date as 2009 which is a year after the second X-Files movie "I Want to Believe" is based. Other than this nitpick the art is good and writing is sold "classic" X Files (circa '93-95).

Recommended reading; it's a shame it wasn't picked up as a continuing series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some X (Files) Is Better Than No X (Files) 11 Jan 2010
By E. Lee Zimmerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I miss Fox TV's THE X FILES more and more with each passing television season. Chris Carter's drama about the paranormal, starring the lovely Gillian Anderson and the understated David Duchovny, was a centerpiece to my weekly viewing agenda. These were smart, witty, and intelligent explorations to things 'on the cusp' of rational explanations, and each episode was very well produced, almost like a miniature feature film. The two theatrical films have been great returns to these characters, though the second feture felt more like a bloated hour of television than it did a full-fledged feature, but nothing comes close to those moments of boob tube brilliance like watching the DVDs and rediscovering a show that helped define quality television, at least for half of its run.

To help fill this gap, I sought out and bought WildStorm's recent trade paperback collection of THE X FILES. Thankfully, these adventures take place within the context of the television show's run, so the stories kinda/sorta loosely fit in with the characters as we came know them in their weekly outings. The trade paperback collects six issues, and, while the stories aren't quite on par with the quality of writing done regularly for the show, they certainly have that X FILES' feel. Frank Spotnitz -- one of the showrunner's regular producers and contributors -- pens much of what's here, and his obvious understanding of this paranormal universe helps establish the overall tone of these three narratives, one dealing with possession, another dealing with mysticism and triads, and the last dealing with an underground civilization (think 'the Hollow Earth' theory) dining on human flesh. While not all of this works successfully, there is an undercurrent of authenticity to the show, with Mulder always representing the fringe elements as Scully chooses to abide by hard science.

This is certainly worth a read, but, if anything, I found the graphic novel only serving up a modest helping -- a virtual side order of X -- waiting for the full meal to be delivered. The last arc -- the Hollow Earth dwellers in the Badlands -- feels like an X FILES variation on the horror film, THE DESCENT (which I enjoyed immensely), not quite original but, then again, certainly far from a straight copy. Read and enjoy ... just don't look for too solid a fix. I'd welcome more adventures of the intrepid Mulder and Scully, especially within the framework of the TV show as the writers deliver here, but next time I'd hope they put a little more meat on them there bones.

4.0 out of 5 stars How Much It's Missed! 18 Nov 2010
By Salome - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read some of The X-Files comics over the years, admittedly not much. I recently started rereading some of the ones that I had from back in High School and found them as lacking in punch as I did then. I found out about this new series online, the first few of which were written by Frank Spotnitz, one of the godfathers of The X-Files. It's as good as I'd hoped!

Unlike what you find in most of the fanfic out there, Mulder and Scully feel like Mulder and Scully again! Unsurprisingly coming from Frank Spotnitz, the characterization is spot on. In the old comics, Mulder and Scully barely even had personalities. Here they shine and it's a true blast from the past.

Wisely, the time these stories take place is during the "classic" X-Files period, somewhere around Season 5 judging from their hairstyles. The artwork is superb. Somehow they were able to capture the nuances of expression that Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny were so good at. There are also a lot of series references, winks to the fans that will make you smile when you notice them. The best stories are the initial ones by Spotnitz, apparently they came from ideas he had for episodes that never made it into the series. Consequently, they really feel like true X-Files and not just another ghost story with Mulder and Scully plopped down into the middle of it. The other stories are good too, though they fall off a little towards the end.

While it doesn't make up for the great on-screen chemistry we can only get from the actors, all in all, this volume offers a welcome relief from bloated fanfic and will help fill the void the series left for die-hard fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great so far, but what is the timeline? 22 Sep 2013
By Abby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am confused by when this book took place as in the first chapter, a victim is identified as disappearing in 1991, seventeen years ago. However, that would mean the timeline of the book is 2008, the year the second movie came out. This makes no sense as M&S were no longer agents. Plus the hair and clothing is all wrong. So I'm just going to assume the date of 1991 was a typo and it was supposed to be 1981.

Minor detail, but annoying enough to tweak the brain. Anyways, what is great about the book are the graphics and characterization. The graphics are much more accurate than the Topps comics that came out in the 90s...in those sometimes I had trouble following the storyline because I can't figure out who is Mulder and who is the bad guy. And Scully was fuglified in those comic books. In this book, the graphics are very accurate, crisp, and colorful (unlike the Season 10 series). They seem almost computer generated, and some people may not like that style, but it makes it more similar to watching the TV show.

The characterization is also well done, with appropriate quips. The inside references (such as getting a case referred by Tom Colton) add another layer of charm. I'm enjoying the storylines as well...interesting MOTWs, although I havent gotten through them all so far...I am pacing myself!

Stayed true to characters from the original show and stories were easy to follow. The art of this graphic novel is very realistic and beautiful.
