X-Files Comic Book Series to Return from IDW, with Chris Carter

From ECCC, IDW announced that The X-Files will relaunch in June.



Source: Bleeding Cool

  Series creator Chris Carter will be part of the creative team launching The X-Files comic book this June.  The series will pick up where the TV show left off, being billed as Season 10 and with Carter on board, the new stories will fit into established canon.

  The first story arc will tackle the alien conspiracy in a more "paranoid, post-terror, post-wikileaks society," and will tie into plots from the original series.  Mulder and Scully have to work their way back to agent status in the first story, but everyone associate with the X-FIles are being killed off one-by-one.  It will bring the two together again for their own protection. 
 


From IDW:

THE X-FILES: SEASON 10 will be written by Joe Harris, writer of the acclaimed series Great Pacific, with art and colors by the Comeback team of artist Michael Walsh and colorist Jordie Bellaire. Issue #1 will feature covers by Dave JohnsonJoe Corroney, and Carlos Valenzuela, along with a classic photo image of Mulder and Scully.

“It was already an incredibly exciting prospect to tell stories set after the second THE X-FILES movie, especially after Joe Harris worked up such a great plan in that regard,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. “But my excitement level went off the charts after a meeting with Chris Carter, where he agreed to come aboard and executive produce our Season 10. In much the same way Joss Whedon steered our Angel: After the Fall series, Chris has graciously returned to do the same here. What do THE X-FILES look like in this increasingly paranoid and untrusting post-Wikileaks era? Well, they look like canon to me… and come June, the rest of the world will be able to see it for themselves, too.”

In the opening story arc, “Believers,” readers will catch up with Dana Scully and Fox Mulder, living normal lives together under secret identities. However, a visit from an old friend threatens to rip them from suburban anonymity, as they learn that someone is preying upon everyone involved in THE X-FILES. Prepare to revisit familiar faces—some very unexpected, threats old and new, and an intriguing mystery designed to return the beloved franchise to its former glory!
