IDW Set To Launch New ‘X-Files’ Comic, Reprint Classic Material
Cue Mark Snow’s creepy theme music, because new The X-Files stories are on the way. In a partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, IDW Publishing has announced that they have plans to bring the hit, sci-fi/horror franchise as a brand new comic series starting in June.While there is no word yet on the creative team for the new book, its stories will pick up where the last film, The X-Files: I Want To Believe, left off. Along with the new series, IDW also plans to reprint unspecified collections of Mulder and Scully’s adventures, presumably those published by Topps and DC comics sporadically through 1995-2009.
Jeffrey Godsick, President of Fox Consumer Products shared his thoughts about the new partnership in IDW’s official press release:
“The fans of THE X-FILES have remained loyal to the series since its conclusion. What better way to continue the show’s legacy and give back to them than through new stories in a different medium. IDW has worked with a number of our Fox properties, and we know they’re going to do great things with these iconic characters.”
This is not the first time IDW Publishing has taken a call from the paranormal agents. In 2009, IDW Publishing teamed-up with Wildstorm Productions for the 30 Days of Night/X-Files crossover.
