X-Files Joins 30 Days of Night

Details are about as scarce as daylight in Barrow, Alaska, right now, but C2E2 saw the announcement that Fox Mulder and Dana Scully will be investigating vampires this summer in a Wildstorm/IDW Publishing crossover. In the six-issue miniseries pitting the X-Files investigations against the vampires of 30 Days of Night, Steve Niles and Adam Jones of Tool fame (illustrations by Tom Mandrake) will send Mulder and Scully to investigate a murder in the Alaska region.

Personally, I think this is a really cool crossover. I wonder if this recent comic book renaissance had happened in the 90s when The X-Files were a bigger deal if we'd see more crossovers like this. I was a huge Mulder and Scully fan and this is a crossover that could work exceptionally well in a comic book. I'm not so sure it would translate well to a movie, but at the very least a miniseries should have enough to satisfy fans of both series.

Stay tuned for more details.
