'X-Files: Season 11, Volume 1' by Joe Harris with art by Matthew Dow Smith is the comic book continuation of the series which started with a season 10.
When this volume open, Mulder is a fugitive from the FBI sporting a garish mustache. Scully is still with the Bureau, but is under the thumb of Gibson Praise who has strange powers. While Scully investigates the links to a company called Cantus, Mulder finds himself stumbling into a strange family from the original series. The two cases may just be linked, but first Mulder has to untangle himself from a group of people who want a strange version of revenge on him. And what does Gideon Praise want out of all of this?
The writing is good. The story is a bit confusing as is the art at times. Confusing stories work ok in an X-Files story so that can be a bit overlooked. I can even overlook the art in places, but there were a couple times it was hard to tell who a character was. I liked it, but there have been other X-Files graphic novels I've liked more.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, IDW Publishing, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
