How 'The Walking Dead' Lured Me Into The Comic Store
The biggest barrier for comics entry, specifically with the direct market, seems to be actually getting people into comic shops. The first comic I ever read was a black and white reprint of the first 20 or so Spider-Man comics, in the "Essentials" phonebook-sized comics Marvel used to print.

But it didn't make me want to get up and go find a comic shop. That changed when I discovered The Walking Dead, by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard.

From 1995 to 1998, Topps Comics published a comics tie-in to The X-Files that featured original stories and, among other artists, some of Charlie Adlard‘s earliest US art. With Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully about to return to television, we at ComicsAlliance are revisiting this classic series, and highlighting some of the best stories it had to tell. For this final post in this series, I'm looking back at my favorite X-Files comic from the entire run --- for how well it's written and drawn, and for how deep and primal a fear it touches within me.

This week, it's Mulder and Scully versus a serial killer so detached and unreal, only the style of a comic book could bring him to life - or whatever dreamlike state passes for it - and we get hints of a larger metaplot that ties together the entire first year of the X-Files comic.
