X-Files: Haunted, Book #3 by Stefan Petrucha

The X-Files: The Haunting - Stefan Petrucha

We've been rewatching the X-Files for the last few months, and have been really enjoying it. It has its ups and downs, but for every clunker there's an absolute gem that obscenely never seemed to make it to syndication. I saw this and "Night Lights" at one of the flea markets this spring and couldn't pass them up.

Tie-ins are always dicey, because they have to fit into the canon of the show, but being sidelines, they can't make any permanent change to the status quo. You can't have Scully showing off a new tattoo without explanation. 20th century TV was bad enough at continuity most of the time, no one wants to worry about what happened in the comic book.

'The Haunting' was pretty good. In my memory they're already taking shape as actual episodes. Mercifully eliminating some of the rushed art. The stories themselves were solid. Hicks and aliens, classic combo.
