Sometimes I think Cigarette-Smoking Man is just winging it.
I’m so glad this is back. It’s been a rough couple of weeks, and this is so soothing.
I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this, but the X-Files got kinda weird in its later seasons.
As noted last comic, a friend and I went through and watched most of the episodes that Krycek is in recently, and toward the end he mostly shows up very briefly in extremely self-serious mythology-related episodes. The comment that was made multiple times in this period was, “So, Chris Carter wrote this one?”
I haven’t seen that many other episodes from this season, so I’m not sure what to expect — but the presence of ‘X-Cops’ in this season makes me hope that the self-seriousness doesn’t last long!
Hey, we’re back!
I … think at this point I’d mostly given up? Either I’d stopped watching it, or I was just there for the monsters and was letting the conspiracy wash over me without engaging. Either way, I have no memory of any of this stuff.
Just gotta say, I love Mulder’s cute toesies in panel nine.
