Welcome to X-Files News!
There are only 2 more nights of sleep before we can make a run for the comic book store bright and early in the morning to get our copies of the The X-Files: Season 10. And what better way to spend the morning than with fellow X-Files fans and one of the talents behind the new comics.
Artist Michael Walsh will be at Toronto Silver Snail this coming Wednesday June 19th from 10AM onwards to sign copies of Issue #1. XFN will be onsite to cover the event. If you happen to be in the city, stop by to get your signed copy, meet Michael, chat with fellow philes and say hi to XFN. If you are unable to attend, make sure to follow us on Twitter for updates. Information about the event can be found on their Facebook.
We're only a few days out from the release of Issue #1 of The X-Files: Season 10 from IDW Publishing. We've all seen the cover artwork floating around and many of us have read the descriptions for the first few issues.
There is a lot of information out there right now--both about the comics and the people behind them. If you're already a comic fan, you may have this covered. However, if not, here is a collection of everything (and every link) you need to know.
To all our faithful readers, bloggers, guests, collaborators, tweeters, tumblrs, facebookers that asked us everyday when we would be back, well, look at us! We are back!
There's still some dust here and there to be worked out, but no worries! We are here, just in time for the Season Ten X-Files comics, our promised feature from The Art of The X-Files event and a VERY EXCITING thing that we've been keeping from you that we're sure that you're going to enjoy!
In the mean time, thanks so much for being the most awesome and faithful group of readers, we owe ourselves to you and your constant support.
The XFN Team
It's been awhile since we've heard details about Chris Carter's new show The After. Luckily, some new information on the 13-episode-run series has emerged from TVWise. Check it out:
According to a number of potential buyers who heard the pitch for the series, 'The After' is in fact a thriller set in Los Angeles which explores the coming apocalypse. I hear that the drama begins after a strange event strikes the Earth. There is no government statement on this event and it is shrouded in secrecy and will ultimately lead to a far greater cataclysmic event. The series will follow a core group of characters who try to discover just what has happened and why, while also doing what they must to survive. One source described it as a combination of 'The X-Files' and 'Falling Skies'. 'It’s a mystery series set right at the end of the world', one source tells me. I also understand that, as one would expect with a genre show such as this, 'The After' will be largely serialised and utilise season long story arcs.
We certainly can't wait to hear more, and if you can't either, head over to TVWise to read more!
Earlier today, Gillian Anderson participated in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) thread on Reddit. The Q&A session was a great success with the post sitting at the top of the front page for several hours. At one point, the site even went down under too much activity for a few minutes.
Fans from all over the world asked Gillian questions about her career and life, and there were some really great moments. If you want to check out the entire thread, you can do so here. If searching through the the comments makes your head spin though, you can also read her responses to questions on her user page. Then click "permalink" or "context" to see the question she was answering.
