IDW Publishing successfully resurrected Agents Mulder and Scully last year in writer Joe Harris’ ongoing “X-Files” series, and in January, the spotlight shifts to longtime supporting characters the Lone Gunmen with the “X-Files: Conspiracy” event by novelist Paul Crilley and artist John Stanisci. During the course of the company-wide, multi-property crossover, the Lone Gunmen track down a “mysterious contagion” that could destroy the world. “Conspiracy” operates similar to IDW’s “Infestation” event, using spin-off books to bring the story to other licensed IDW properties like “Ghostbusters,” “Transformers,” “The Crow” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”
This series starts off the story centering around both The Lone Gunman and Mulder and Scully. The Lone Gunman are sent a decrypted email which when decrypted reveals pages from news stories in the future. Mulder and Scully are working on a seemingly unrelated but rather graphic murder investigation. Naturally the two plot lines collide and we are set out about on our tale.
“The Crow: Pestilence” #1 satisfies the reader’s taste for a good old fashioned revenge thriller. From the mind of creator James O’Barr, readers get another vengeance-driven tale from beyond the grave. Hardcore fans of the “The Crow” series will still get a kick out of the gun-toting action and stylized artwork.
