IDW Publishing have announced a brand new venture with Twentieth Century Fox that will have Sci-Fi fans of the 90's cheering with gleeful joy.
As of June 2013 The X-Files will return but after the last film it appears that the third film won't find its way to screens anytime soon, so IDW are preparing to launch a new comic book that will continue the epic adventures of Mulder and Scully. To go along side this new comic book IDW will also be reprinting collections of the classic issues which were published intermittently from 1995 through to 2009.
Over two hundred episodes and two feature length films under its belt (I nearly put one film, who wants to remember the fluff up that was the second film? Right?) The X-Files is a series that still provides entertainment and ushers in praise to this day.
Here's a number of pretty quotes from those involved:
"THE X-FILES is a classic property that helped redefine fans' expectations for the science-fiction and horror genres," said IDW's President/Chief Operating Officer Greg Goldstein. "The possibilities for new comic stories are virtually unlimited!"
"The fans of THE X-FILES have remained loyal to the series since its conclusion. What better way to continue the show's legacy and give back to them than through new stories in a different medium," said Jeffrey Godsick, President of Fox Consumer Products. "IDW has worked with a number of our Fox properties, and we know they're going to do great things with these iconic characters."
In 2013, fans of THE X-FILES will want to believe in new comics from IDW Publishing! The home of successful kindred series like 30 Days of Night, Doctor Who, and Locke & Key, to name a few, IDW is excited to bring the enduring legacy of THE X-FILES back to comics.
"Few shows have captured the zeitgeist and fans' imaginations like THE X-FILES, and fewer shows still have left people hungry for more in the way this one did," said Chris Ryall, IDW's Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. "Our new series will be picking up where the second film left off, which will hopefully be as exciting for fans to read as it is for us to develop."
