Marvel Point One and Image Comics’ The Mission top this week’s edition of The Comic Stop

Two cool titles make their way into The Comic Stop this week. The first is a mini-series from Image Comics that you may have missed the first time around but that’s well worth your time if you like a tense tale of a man fighting against unknown forces working against him (and who doesn’t). As well, we’ve also got a look at the book that sets up the next year of stories in the Marvel Universe. The door to the shop is open – come on in.

The Truth and the Conspiracy were out there – looking back at the final episode of The X-Files

One of the main reasons I like Netflix here in Canada is that you can catch up on a lot of your favourite television shows from days gone by, especially those shows you’re just not willing to pay for on DVD.

If you’re like me, one of those shows is The X-Files.

From 1993 until 2002 and over the course of nine seasons and 202 episodes, The X-Files became a cultural phenomenon that, along with The Simpsons, helped secure the fledgling Fox Network as a major player in the ever-expanding cable television universe.

In the spirit of Biff Bam Pop’s “Conspiracy Week,” I recently caught up with old friends Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) over the two-hour series finale, “The Truth,” originally aired on Sunday, May 19th, 2002.  Creator Chris Carter  wrote the two-hour event, wrapping up the series in an exposition-heavy clip show that laid out the conspiracy behind UFOs, alien abductions and their connection to the U.S. government.

If you ever wanted to believe but were never really sure of what was going on, today’s look at “The Truth” will set your mind free.

Or burden it with a whole lot of frustrating questions.

Fair warning: set your spoiler-sensors to full from here on.
