The X-Files Comic Book
Yes, it's a slow news day, folks

As news days go, today is so slow that it practically going backwards. But we soldier on regardless. This isn't specifically about a movie, but it is related to one. Prior to the release of The X-Files: I Want To Believe, an X-Files comic book, The X-Files #0, will be released, filling in some gaps in the story so far. But whereas the film takes place after the end of the show, this will follow events in season 5. You can check out some of the pages at EW.com, here.

The story, written by X-Files co-writer Frank Spotnitz, is set during the time when Scully was suffering from cancer and her partner, Mulder, was on the run and convinced there was something suspicious about his fellow agent's illness. More comics are set to follow this one.

Slow news day or not...
...I'm still bloody excited. The drawings of Mulder and Scully look so much better in this one than in some of the older XF comics. More

No point if comic is set in Season 5
It seems a bit pointless to set the comic-book in Season 5 (when Scully had "alien" cancer and they obtained a cure via Cancer Man). I'm sure most fans would of been interested in the years between the end of the show and the new movie. If it was really issue Zero then it should be stories about Mulder and the Diana (Mimi Rogers) character as they started on the X-Files. More

RE: Scully had cancer?

Didn't there used to be an X-Files comic books series?
I remember a 2-part story on the origin of the Aztecs (Atzlan aka Atlantis?) and cannabilism...Great story, bland characters... More
