Comic Book Review – The X-Files #12


MARCH 29, 2017 BY TONY BLACK

“Skinner,” Part 1 (of 2): Assistant Director Walter Skinner finally gets the spotlight! When a face from the past resurfaces, Skinner must confront painful memories of the Vietnam War in his effort to keep a dark secret from being exposed.



Skinner. The title says it all as a pronouncement this issue of The X-Files is all about Fox Mulder & Dana Scully’s FBI boss, the nebulous Assistant Director who is mostly friend but occasionally skirts into ever so slight foe territory. Joe Harris takes the brave move here of removing our two legendary agents entirely from proceedings and in this first of a two-parter not only squaring the focus centrally on Walter, but setting the majority of his story in the past. He takes a cue from a famous monologue Skinner delivers in the episode ‘One Breath’, talking about a paranormal experience he could never reconcile while he was a Marine serving in Vietnam, and runs with it into unexpected territory.

Specifically, as he later recounts to Mulder at the FBI, Skinner had an out of body experience after being ambushed in the jungle and couldn’t look beyond the experience when he later woke in hospital, the only survivor of his platoon. Harris here decides to add a surprising complication when it comes to the paranormality Skinner faces, as his story flashes back and then flashes back some more as in 1970, serviceman Skinner recounts to two shadowy government agents what happened two weeks earlier before his fellow Marines were ambushed, and it’s a quite spooky story involving ancient ruins, talisman’s, and a spectral being that seems to know Skinner, or know who he is.

Andrew Currie’s brighter, colourful art almost has a Raiders of the Lost Ark feel when it comes to drawing the unknown spectral menace, and it’s interesting how he lends the same bolder, luscious hue to his panels as we saw in ‘Ishmael’, which was also heavily a 70’s flashback story for Scully. It’s a nice, presumably intentional choice to change the artist for stories which take place in the past.

Even though it’s more of a prelude and preamble as an issue, ‘Skinner’ yet again continues Joe Harris’ mission to expand out and deepen the mythology of the show and characters, and like he did with William Scully explore hitherto unseen elements of their past histories. It works better as a choice with Skinner given he always had one foot in the enigmatic shadowy forces Mulder & Scully have chased, and his Vietnam experiences are coloured not just by fear of the paranormal but grief at what war made him do. It’s going to be fun to see just how Harris tells the second half of this story as he stitches these variables together.

Rating: 7/10

The X-Files #12 (IDW Publishing)


Observations

Wow. Of all the perverted nicknames you can make out of Walter’s last name, Skin Flute might be the absolute worst.

Nothing like watching a bunch of soldiers fight over jewelry.

Skin Flap isn’t good either, but it’s definitely an improvement.

Geez, this Greene guy Skinner has to patrol with is a douche.

Uh, I feel like we’re missing something…

Huh?

The Verdict

Well, the art is nice.

I also feel like there’s a really good story in here somewhere. Unfortunately, Joe Harris sequences things so insanely that the script becomes incredibly hard to follow. Add a lot of unexplained backstory along with a nonsensical McGuffin, and this issue is a bit of a mess…


…or it could be brilliant and I’m just too dumb to understand it. Perhaps all these jumbled events and memories will get beautifully tied together next month. I’m not being facetious here, by the way. Harris has something here that I desperately want to wrap my head around. He also writes Skinner incredibly well, providing the youthful version of him with a little extra verve, but still maintaining the classic, smoldering stoicism from the show.

As it stands now, however, this is not the Walter Skinner story I was hoping for (although watching someone call him all those various nicknames was kind of fun).

THE X-FILES #12

A potentially brilliant story is tripped up by a constantly shifting timeline and a nonsensical McGuffin.


+ The art is very nice, particularly on the last page.

+ There's a brilliant story in here somewhere...

_ ...it's just near impossible to find with all the shifts in the narrative's timeline and focus.
