Over the weekend at Emerald City Comicon, IDW Publishing and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products announced plans for X-FILES season 10… in comic book form.
Taking a cue from what Dark Horse Comics did with BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL by bringing Joss Whedon onboard, THE X-FILES: SEASON 10 will be produced by Chris Carter, the series creator. THE X-FILES: SEASON 10 will be written by Joe Harris (GREAT PACIFIC) with art by Michael Walsh and colorist Jordie Bellaire.
Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief on the project:
“It was already an incredibly exciting prospect to tell stories set after the second The X-Files movie, especially after Joe Harris worked up such a great plan in that regard…But my excitement level went off the charts after a meeting with Chris Carter, where he agreed to come aboard and executive produce our Season 10. In much the same way Joss Whedon steered our Angel: After the Fall series, Chris has graciously returned to do the same here. What do The X-Files look like in this increasingly paranoid and untrusting post-Wikileaks era? Well, they look like canon to me… and come June, the rest of the world will be able to see it for themselves, too.”
The book launches June 18th with its first issue featuring covers by Dave Johnson, Joe Corroney, Carlos Valenzuela, and a photo cover of Mulder and Scully.
