The Next X-Files Comic Is Tackling JFK's Assassination

For years, The X-Files has trawled the dark, weird world of conspiracy theories for stories—but its latest comic is going to be tackling one of the biggest and wildest slate of theories in the world: the conspiracies surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy in November 1963.

While there are oodles of bizarro theories about that fateful November afternoon, X-Files: JFK Disclosure—a two-part special written by Denton J. Tipton, with art by Menton3—will take its own strange slant, thrusting none other that true believer Fox Mulder himself into the heart of the real truth behind Kennedy’s death. Which, in true X-Files fashion, pins that conspiracy to the one to cover up another death; that of Mulder’s father, Bill. With no one left to turn to, Mulder finds himself on a dangerous path that sees him have to decide whether his belief in his father or his belief in the truth is more important to him.

Of course JFK’s assassination has come up in The X-Files before. Various conspiracy theories have been mentioned on the show and, of course, there was the possibility presented in “Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man.” In that episode, it was postulated that the smoke-surrounded villain had committed the crime from a sewer and used Lee Harvey Oswald as a patsy. We’ll see how much of that makes it to the comic. The Cigarette Smoking Man did work with Bill Mulder, after all.

Although the series is delving into X-Files mythology for its JFK theories, JFK Disclosure does have one way to tie into the real world conspiracies surrounding the assassination: it’s being released to tie-into the public release of the final batch of sealed government files related to Kennedy’s death due this October. “Though more than 50 years have passed, the JFK assassination continues to be a popular topic of conversation among all walks of life,” series writer Denton Tipton said in a statement provided to io9. “Now the most popular FBI agents of all time will dive headlong into the greatest conspiracy of the 20th century, just as new facts are about to come to light in the real world. That is unless they are suppressed once again…”

The X-Files: JFK Disclosure is set to begin October 25, a day before the 25-year statute on the 1992 JFK Records Act—which demanded all files related to Kennedy’s assassination be made public within 25 years—is set to end. Insert your best X-Files theme impression here!

X-FILES Comic to Tackle the JFK Assassination

Posted by Eric Diaz on July 13, 2017

The X-Files has tackled every conspiracy theory under the sun over the nearly 25 years that the show has been around, everything from Roswell to Bigfoot to you name it. But one of the most famous American conspiracy theories that series creator Chris Carter has thus far mostly stayed away from (at least in any great detail) is the assassination of President John F. Kennedy back in 1963. But that’s about to change.

According to the folks at io9, publisher IDW Comics is coming out with X-Files: JFK Disclosure, a two-part special written by Denton J. Tipton, with art by Menton3. The special will draw its own weird conclusions on the JFK case, and will place Fox Mulder himself into the middle of the “real truth” behind Kennedy’s death, which will apparently cover up another assassination, that of Mulder’s father, Bill. You can check out the covers to the X-Files: JFK Disclosure down below.


The reason for the release of this series right now? JFK Disclosure is being released to tie-into the public release of the final batch of sealed government files related to Kennedy’s death which are due this October. Series writer Denton Tipton said in a statement “Though more than 50 years have passed, the JFK assassination continues to be a popular topic of conversation among all walks of life. Now the most popular FBI agents of all time will dive headlong into the greatest conspiracy of the 20th century, just as new facts are about to come to light in the real world. That is unless they are suppressed once again.”


The X-Files: JFK Disclosure is set to hit comic book shops on October 25, a day before the 25-year statute on the 1992 JFK Records Act, which demanded all files related to Kennedy’s assassination be made public within 25 years, is set to come to an end.

Are you stoked to see X-Files finally tackle the conspiracy theory to end all conspiracy theories? Be sure to let us know your thoughts down below in the comments.

EXCLUSIVE: The X-Files Meets Real-Life History in JFK Disclosure #2

3 hours ago
by CBR Staff



The original The X-Files TV series touched on the real-life assassination of President John F. Kennedy, something that IDW Publishing’s The X-Files: JFK Disclosure two-issue miniseries looks to explore further, from the creative team of writer Denton J. Tipton (editor of IDW series including Star Wars Adventures) and artist Menton3 (cover artist of IDW’s The X-Files ongoing).

CBR has the first look at the solicitation text for November’s The X-Files: JFK Disclosure #2 — scheduled for release the same month as the 54th anniversary of the JFK assassination — and the issue’s main cover by Menton3, and variant by J.J. Lendl.



The X-Files: JFK Disclosure #2 (of 2)—Cover A: Menton3


  • Denton J. Tipton (w) • Menton3 (a & c)
  • When he learns the real reason behind President Kennedy’s assassination, Mulder also discovers his father was involved in the conspiracy. This revelation forces him to decide between the two things he holds most sacred: his family and the truth. It’s bombshell after bombshell in The X-Files: JFK Disclosure!
  • FC • 40 pages • $4.99



The X-Files: JFK Disclosure #2 (of 2)—Cover B: J.J. Lendl


  • Denton J. Tipton (w) • Menton3 (a) • J.J. Lendl (c)
  • FC • 40 pages • $4.99

Bullet points:

  • Lavishly painted art by Menton3!
  • Timed for release on the anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination!
  • Don’t miss the B cover by X-Files Poster Project artist J.J. Lendl that connects to the previous issue’s cover!
