The X-Files The Official Collection Volume 1
It’s hard to explain to people now just how big a deal The X-Files was during its initial run. It was legitimately groundbreaking storytelling, a mix of magic and paranoia, humor and heart, big adventures and outlandish concepts, all wrapped in a serialized package with two immensely attractive and magnetic leads. It was a perfect storm of ideas and entertainment, and it was awesome.
Now The X-Files is back—at least it was, for a six-episode run—and people are catching the X-File fever all over again. The X-Files: The Official Collection, Volume 1 assembles articles from The Official X-Files Magazine chronicling characters and stories from various points throughout the show’s long history. Everyone from the main players and the Syndicate are interviewed to offer their insight into the making of the show and what the show has come to mean to its fans and pop culture alike.
With analysis of top episodes, advice for following in Mulder and Scully’s footsteps, “shipper” moments, a brief episode guide, and a plethora of gorgeous photographs from throughout the show’s history, this is the perfect way to introduce new readers to a modern classic. (Other than just watching the show, I mean.)
