After leaving the X-Files and starting a new life in anonymity, Scully and Mulder find themselves swept up in the paranormal once again as something weird starts sniffing around. 

So, we’re past the movies. They’ve left the FBI and have started a new life together to escape everything, but they’re like flypaper for this stuff. Skinner comes over with the warning that their systems got hacked and X-Files stuff possibly got compromised, and then he nearly hung himself because something got into his head. We actually saw them when Skully had to deal with them and things don’t look good. I’m not sure if it’s aliens, or something more interesting. The cover’s spooky and I expected aliens and some are given psychic abilities in various media so it could still be. I’m curious. I need to know.

I’m not digging the art very much, though. They roughly look like who they’re supposed to be, but… I dunno. I just don’t feel it. I’m in a weird state about it. I guess it’s from me expecting more detailed art than what it is. Oh, well. I still enjoyed the book. I always liked X-Files. The early stuff, anyway. It got pretty lame in the later seasons.  At least the movies went back to their roots.
