I am glad it wasn't just me! Sometimes I wonder whether I am being too hard.

I like Joe Harris work a great deal on The X-Files and remain supportive. For now. But the previous series had slowly drifted into this territory, with huge conspiracy opaque conspiraclyarcs and variable art, for a relaunch I had hoped for a fresh start and renemed accessibility, away from those sort of plodding arcs. It does seem to me that this is a series that could do regular/occasional standalone issues and do them well, in a similar vein to the old 'Astounding Tales' type of science fiction/thriller stories. \(beer\)

It could easily do stand alones much like the TV series has done when contemplating it.  There can always be that story in the background that leads  to a big finale (as the series did this year) while following the adventures of Mulder and Scully against singular, one issue threats.  Kind of like the sub plots in the glory days of Marvel.For what its worth, I usually think I am too easy on different books, but, this one did nothing for me.
