The X-Files: Origins #3 ComicWow! Review


By Art Boorman - October 24, 2016


This is a different X-Files comic.  It tells two parallel stories.  Each storyline is discrete; both of them involve one of the main characters of the X-Files franchise as teenagers.  They do not know each other (so far).

On New England Coast, a young Fox Mulder is investigating UFO sightings with his teenaged friends.  In Southern California, an equally young Dana Scully is investigating the death of a local teacher.  Both of them are (so far) unaware of the conspiracy that ties the two events together.  

This is an interesting enough story and the characters are sufficiently dynamic that it is really unnecessary to recast the story as an X-Files tie-in/prequel.

Young Fox and Dana each show hints of their future selves, but they are still adolescents, unsure of their place and purpose in the world.  Young Fox is less of a loner than adult Fox; Young Dana more of a loner.  Even with this, these characters are not adults; the face problems and issues that are unique to adolescents.  Fox depends on his bike for transportation.  Dana is confronting a family relocation to the West Coast and all of the teenage angst that accompanies the transition.

This comic is clearly aimed at readers new to the series as well as those familiar with the franchise, but is that necessary?  Houser and smith have written a well-constructed parallel narrative.  They have populated it with three-dimensional, realistic characters and they have constructed a fascinating narrative chimera:  a combination of mystery/ Sci-Fi conspiracy/coming-of age story.

The artwork is not standard X-Files artwork.  It is clearly aimed at a younger readership, YA as compared to adult.  The colorist likewise kept tighter control of the palette, with less shading and an almost cartoonish feel.  It is appropriate for the characters, artwork and storyline.

Written by:  Jody Houser & Matthew Dow Smith


Illustrated by: Chris Fenoglio & Corin Howell

Comic Book Review – The X-Files: Origins #3
OCTOBER 26, 2016 BY TONY BLACK 





Tony Black reviews The X-Files: Origins #3…

Before the FBI, before the X-Files, they were just two teenagers in search of the truth. On Martha’s Vineyard, a young Fox Mulder investigates something strange happening on the island, while in San Diego, 13-year-old Dana Scully looks into the shocking murder of her teacher. Two kids, two mysteries, one conspiracy that threatens the future of humanity!

We close in on the end of The X-Files: Origins with this penultimate issue from Jody Houser & writer/artist Matthew Dow Smith, and like never before they’re reeling in the story threads while focusing on the continued youthful character development of Agents Mulder & Scully in a fun, satisfying way. The issue is bright & colourful without the writing being twee or child-friendly, rather consistently remaining true to these characters while widening the mythos; and if this issue is anything to go by, they’ve got a great finale on the horizon.

After discovering in the previous issue that his friend Eric’s Dad may be involved in the conspiracy to hide whatever’s happening in the woods, young Mulder is galvanized to continue putting the pieces together. Houser does a great job here of connecting to existing tropes and traits in The X-Files, such as Mulder using a tape recorder to soliloquies his inner monologue, try and make those connections (plus ‘aliens and junk’ has to be a nod to Seth Green in ‘Deep Throat’), while having Eric facing the possibility his Dad may not be the man he thinks is excellent foreshadowing for Mulder’s own journey of family self-discovery when he’s older. Not a great deal happens in terms of plot, with the mystery girl cropping up again & the story more about Mulder’s interaction with his friends, but the piece ends on an interesting cliffhanger which entices you for the final part.

A few years later on the other side of the country, young Scully is operating on the flip side of Mulder in more ways than she can possibly know at this stage; Dow Smith enjoys having Scully’s inner monologue emerge through her notebook scribblings while also referencing a multitude of sleuths she looks up to, though admits she’s missing her ‘Sherlock’ to put the pieces together. Overall this issue has had more foreshadowing of the future partnership of these children than anything yet, and as Dow Smith throws in even more winks to the show (one I caught was ‘Manners Ave’ for instance), this time he directly connects Scully’s murder investigation into Mulder’s search for aliens – with Admiral Scully effectively the ‘Mulder’ being given information by a surprising source. It means we’re slightly ahead of Scully at this stage, but it sets up a final issue which may tether together their youthful searching for themselves amongst crime and mystery in a way I didn’t expect this series to do.

This might be favourite X-Files: Origins issue yet, and let’s face it they’ve all been top quality; a real blend of continued development for our teenage Mulder & Scully as events begin shaping who they are as young people, mixed with a light blend of conspiracy and intrigue while fits in the brighter, bolder and more colourful texture of the panels. The only downside, frankly, is that we only have one more issue left before the curtain comes down and, hopefully, secrets are revealed.

Rating: 8/10

Title: The X-Files: Origins #3
Writers: Matthew Dow Smith & Jody Houser
Artist: Corin Howell & Chris Fenoglio
Publisher: IDW Publishing



Issue three of The X-Files: Origins begins to tie together the two separate Origins stories, linking them by their conspiracies which appear now to have the same military group at their hearts. While Sophie is interested to see how deep this connection goes, she does hope the stories remains distinct and don’t somehow result in teenage Mulder and Scully meeting. Having one of the minor characters from Mulder’s story show up in Scully’s, now several years older and a “wreck” compared to how we have seen him so far, is a clever move and she hopes the two stories are able to build on what could be a promising twist.

For Sophie, Scully’s story is the definite stand out from this book. It is in her story that we really make progress with the reveal of the joint conspiracy which also begins to resolve Admiral Scully’s bookkeeping plot. Mulder’s is a fairly weak affair this issue, with almost nothing of import happening in the woods of Massachusetts until the final pages. That being said, we once again see some interesting plot parallels as both Dana and Eric struggle to accept the evidence that their fathers are involved in something mysterious and probably dangerous.

Origins continues to be a fantastic mini-series offering a whole new look into the X-Files universe, and it once again has Sophie eager to read what happens next.

REVIEW - THE X-FILES: ORIGINS #3



by Sophie Brown

In issue three of The X-Files: Origins, available now from IDW Publishing, Mulder and Scully’s stories begin to intertwine as the two teens unravel more of the conspiracies surrounding them. Read on for our spoiler-filled review of Origins #3.

In 1974 Massachusetts, young Fox is growing increasingly angry at the local adults who continue to lie to him and his friends. While out for a bike ride, he is surprised by the young blonde girl he spotted in the wood who convinces him to keep digging. Recruiting Tim back into the fold, the boys head to Eric’s house only to witness his father handing over the evidence they discovered last issue to the military. Eric is naturally reluctant to believe his father is involved in any conspiracy, but over ice cream the boys convince him to help them continue their investigation, if only to prove his father’s innocence.

The gang head back to the woods, only to find is has been cleared of all evidence. Eric quickly becomes convinced that this whole thing is an elaborate prank being played out by Tim and Fox, but as the boys argue, Tim spots something through the trees. A glowing green figure in what looks to be a hazmat/astronaut/diving suit is lying on the ground, surrounded by the green ooze. As the boys approach, the figure stirs and reaches out to them for help. To be continued…

Over in California it’s still the summer of 1977 and young Dana has stalled in her own investigation into the murder of her Sunday school teacher Mr. Wilson. She has collected a number of clues but struggles to resolve them into any answers, despite attempting to channel the many detectives she has read about - from Nancy Drew to Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple.

At the Miramar Naval Base, her father Rear Admiral Scully risks questioning his superiors over the discrepancies he found in the base’s books. Stonewalled, he goes to leave only to discover a note taped to his car window giving details of a meeting place and time.

Dana sets out to keep watch on Mr. Wilson’s house when she is startled by the arrival of her own mysterious blonde acquaintance, Mercy. The girls are excited about the prospect of a stake out, and soon enough two cars roll up outside the house, only Dana is shocked to realize one of the drivers is her father.

Admiral Scully meets with Donald Russell who reveals himself to be the now washed up father of Fox’s friend Eric. He explains to the admiral how he and the Oceanographic Institute he worked for became involved with a covert military group, their work guided to the point where they were no longer doing their own research, but that which the military dictated to them. He reveals that eventually people, including his son Eric, “got hurt.” Admiral Scully demands to know how this affects him to which Russell explains that the same military group has now moved on and is operating secretly out of the admiral’s base. He passes over files he salvaged before his own world fell apart in the hopes that they might help stop the group this time around and save Admiral Scully’s kids.

Dana is shocked and deeply upset by what she believes she witnessed. Mercy suggests she simply ask her father for the truth, but as that means revealing that she was sneaking about at night, Dana dismisses the suggestion. Instead she goes for a walk alone to the beach where she discovers a symbol carved into a rock - the same symbol she found at Mr. Wilson’s house. However, as soon as she discovers the marking, she is startled by the arrival of a mysterious man in a trench coat. To be continued..

Issue three begins to tie together the two separate Origins stories, linking them by their conspiracies which appear now to have the same military group at their hearts. While I am interested to see how deep this connection goes, I do hope the stories remain distinct and don’t somehow result in teenage Mulder and Scully meeting. Having one of the minor characters from Mulder’s story show up in Scully’s, now several years older and a “wreck” compared to how we have seen him so far, is a clever move and I hope the two stories are able to build on what could be a promising twist.

Scully’s story is the definite stand out from this book. It is in her story that we really make progress with the reveal of the joint conspiracy which also begins to resolve Admiral Scully’s bookkeeping plot. Mulder’s is a fairly weak affair this issue, with almost nothing of import happening in the woods of Massachusetts until the final pages. That being said, we once again see some interesting and well executed plot parallels as both Dana and Eric struggle to accept the evidence that their fathers are involved in something mysterious and probably dangerous.

Origins continues to be a fantastic mini-series offering a whole new look into the X-Files universe, and it once again has me eager to read what happens next.
