The X Files by Joe Harris


Rating: ★★★★

Genre: Horror, supernatural, mystery, comic book

Medium: French hardback

Synopsis: Mulder and Scully have adjusted to civilian life as Mr. and Dr. Blake.  Everything seems to be going swell until Skinner shows up with the news that their pasts are catching up to them with the breach in FBI security.  And who exactly are the people with glowing eyes, anyways?

Review: This was such a fun and quick read.  To clarify, this edition was in French, and I have to say reading French graphic novels/comic books does WONDERS for your reading comprehension!  I’m currently in the middle of season 3 of The X Files, so it was really fun to read about Mulder and Scully in a different medium.  This comic book gives off the same vibe as the show does, which is how you know it’s good.  In addition to this, there are so many art styles in this–there’s the classic “comic book” drawing style, but dividing the chapters are more realistic drawings of all the characters.

Ultimately, it’s a fun throwback to the show, and it’s a good vocabulary builder for foreign language learners!
