    1. This review and the rest of the crap I write can be seen @ my blogBark's Book Nonsense . Stop by and say hey.I did my usual 30 minutes of internet research and learned that this volume of X-Files comics were written back in the early days of the series. They are not book adaptions, nor were they ever tv episodes. This volume contains issues #1 – 9. I couldn’t wait to dig in to this because, well, original X-Files material (!) and the return of Mulder.But, most tragically, the magic was not q [...]


    2. I picked up this book to pass the time until the next X-Files: Season 10 comes out, but instead I got really hooked and it brought me back to the days of the tv show!


    3. I have a soft spot in my heart for these old 90s xfiles comic books from topps comics. This features pre-walking dead Charlie adlard on art duty. Nicely written and effective art makes these stories written the golden age of xfiles mania a great read for fans and people who never read the comic


    4. Compared to the current X-files series I wasn't too impressed with this collection though I do recall winning a copy of the actual comic book #1 at my current comic shop way back in the early 90's in a raffle.You get some early artwork from The Walking Dead's Charlie Adlard, but I thought his depictions of Mulder and Scully were a bit off at times and not consistent enough throughout the 9 stories in the book.Story-wise I wasn't much impressed either. I felt it lagged at times and perhaps I was [...]


    5. The artwork is a bit dated, but it still has a really great X-Files feel. You are introduced to crazy human conditions you've never heard of and all sorts of government/alien conspiracies. Any X-Files fan will feel right at home.


    6. Purely reading these old 'Topps' comics for sentimental value. The artwork is horrendous, but the stories remind me of the many dark evenings I stayed glued to the TV for another dose of conspiracy and intrigue. Overall, worth the effort, but nothing outstanding.


    7. #1: Not to be Opened Until X-Mas: ★★ A man dies in a Brooklyn church, claiming to have helped steal the final prophecy of Fatima from the Vatican. Their investigation leads Mulder and Scully to a collector of sacred artifacts. An unidentified branch of the military wants to locate and examine the final prophecy too.#2-#3: A Dismemberance of Things Past / A Little Dream of Me (2 Parts): ★★1/2 Witnesses of an alleged alien craft are being murdered and the next victim may be a respected mil [...]


    8. I picked up this volume of 90s X-Files comics both because I was inspired by Kumail Nanjiani's X-Files Files podcast (which revisits the episodes but also revisits the 90s-era commentary on those episodes) and because I just happened to see this volume at the library.To get this out of the way, I've never been a huge consumer of tie-in properties and I was a huge consumer of the X-Files. (As you can probably tell by the fact that I'm putting it in italics--out of respect.) So it's a little weird [...]


    9. The paranormal investigations of Agents Mulder and Scully continue on in the graphic novel The X-Files Classics: Volume 1. This collection includes the first 9 issues of the Topps Comics series, which feature the stories “Do Not Opened Until X-mas,” “Firebird,” “Trepanning Opera,” and “Silent Cities of the Mind.” The plots are fairly self-contained, told in 2-3 issue arcs, and involve psychic powers, government conspiracies, aliens, and native mysticisms. The writing is pretty go [...]


    10. The combination of the stories and the graphics gave me the feel I used to get while watching the original television series. Mulder still wants to believe and Scully is ever the sceptic. Author Stefan Petrucha has the story twists the viewers came to expect with the show including characters who carry forward from earlier episodes even when you thought their story was finished. Illustrator Charlie Adlard brought Mulder and Scully back to life. I almost expected them to start moving. The excelle [...]


    11. Bit of a weird one this. Once you get used to the quite basic artwork and the overly wordy text, there’s some decent stories here which have a suitably faithful tone to the TV show and the plots. Unfortunately, some of the earlier comics can often be quite confusing, and the writing and artwork often don’t help clarify things as they should. That said, towards issues #5-#9 there's some fairly adult themes and entertaining tales as a result.





    12. Has some great storylines, some are somewhat complicated or even unfinished but that's typically X-Files, of course! All in all a good collection.


    13. I enjoyed my return to the X-Files universe. I felt that some stories tried to cover too much in a short space of time, making the reader work too hard to make the links.



    14. some of the adventures were pretty much predictable. It was an overall pleasure to enter the "trust no one" universe again.
