How fitting that these two worlds should collide, particularly when one considers how The X-Files frequently delves into harrowing monster stories (not unlike the kind featured in 30 Days of Night). This graphic title makes for an unexpectedly ideal crossover and a thrilling one at that. There’s a sense of dread permeating the early pages of this book, and readers will be riveted as seeing the agents pitted against a coven of feral vampires amidst the dark Alaskan tundra. On the other hand, there's something immanently crass and commercial about fictional crossovers. The stories rarely feel organic and something is invariably lost in translation—most often it’s the little nuances that make the characters feel true to form. Surprisingly, though, most of the pieces seem to jive here, including the Mulder and Scully's wry humor and intellectual banter. Conversely, I’m not sure why Mulder is reluctant to divulge his theory that vampires were responsible for these gruesome deaths. The Agent Mulder we all know and love is quick to show his hand and usually with a slideshow presentation to support his otherworldly conjectures. More to the point, the agents have encountered vampires on several occasions during the life of the TV series.
Although the likenesses of Mulder, Scully, and A.D. Skinner are not to my liking, the ferocious depictions of the vampires more than make up for it. Props go to Steve Niles, Adam Jones, and Tom Mandrake for their skillful capturing of the tone and spirit of both franchises, even if the character artwork isn’t top-notch. 30 Days of Night: The X-Files is a satisfactory hybrid comic for fans of either series.
Scully and Mulder are sent to Alaska to investigate a series of mysterious deaths. While there, they run into vampires.
Great for fans of the X Files or horror comics in general.
