Reactions and Reviews: Issue 1

This is the only all X-Files zine that I've seen yet. It has a graphic wraparound cover and is saddle stapled. The zine is well put together with excellent layouts and production values. It is seventy-two pages long, printed in a dense, medium-sized font. The first issue has a mixture of fiction, cast info, an episode guide, some non-fiction articles on UFO stuff and some nice art and cartoons. There are four pieces of fiction. "Maine Winters, Male Egos and Binky" by Eileen Roy is five pages long. In this little tale Scully takes a wound-up Mulder for a weekend trip to visit her mother on the coast of Maine. On a little day trip to see some seals that Scully used to feed as a child, they discover that Scully's seals were not what they seemed. This is a nice little slice of life/vacation story. Some nice bits of humor and a comfortable read. "Up in the Air: Mulder and Scully at 20,000 Feet" by Sherry A. Bass is a short little tale, three and half pages. A funny little story with Mulder and Scully on a plane trip somewhere and Scully seeing Gremlins on the wings. The banter is fun and sometimes silly and got a few good chuckles. "Leaving Jefferson Valley" by Kara Abbott is seven pages long. An episode type story about the residents of a small town disappearing with no hint as to where or how they've gone. Mulder and Scully investigate with the usual strange goings on. A nice, basic story with some good character interaction. "Erasure" by Anne Orbit is three and a half pages, speculating on what happened to Mulder when he was picked up by the military in the episode "Deep Throat". [1]
