IDW Announces The X-Files: Year Zero to Debut in July  FBI Special Agents Mulder and Scully are about to unravel a mystery that dates back to the very beginning of “the X-Files” in a brand new five-issue comic miniseries, The X-Files: Year Zero, debuting this July from IDW Publishing.

From the Press Release:
In its first year at IDW, The X-Files Season 10 has pitted FBI special agents Mulder and Scully against monsters, cults, conspiracies, and more; and now the duo are back in an original tale suited for both X-Files diehards and mystery fans alike!

In the 1940s a shadowy informant known as “Mr. Xero” directed the FBI to a number of paranormal cases that would soon be classified as “X-Files,” which were reserved for the improbable and unexplainable. When faced with an eerily similar “Mr. Zero” in the present, Agent Mulder resolves to uncover the truth about who this mystery person is and his connection to these cases.

The multi-talented veteran Karl Kesel (FF, Superboy) makes his debut at IDW as the writer of the series. Vic Malhotra (The X-Files: Conspiracy: The Crow) and Greg Scott (The X-Files: Season 10) will be splitting art duties with Malhotra providing the art for the 1940s sequences and Scott drawing the present day storyline.

Covers will be provided by Season 10’s Carlos Valenzuela with pulp novel-inspired subscription variants by Robert Hack (Doctor Who) and a retailer incentive cover by Eisner Award winner Francesco Francavilla for the first installment.

“The origins of the X-Files unit of the FBI were only hinted at in the TV show, and we’re proud to present the story of how the precursors of our favorite paranormal agents established the division in the late 1940s,” says editor Denton J. Tipton. “I think Bing and Millie will become fan favorites alongside Mulder, Scully, Reyes, and Doggett.”

“I’ve always thought the 40s would be a wonderful setting for X-Files with the Russian red menace, atomic mutations, and flying saucers all lurking in the shadows—what I like to think of as ‘UFO Noir,” said Kesel from an undisclosed location. “Of course, iconic characters like Mulder and Scully are a joy to write, and being given the opportunity to introduce their predecessors—Bing Ellinson and Millie Ohio—well, the truth is it’s all a little unbelievable to me. But the unbelievable is what X-Files is all about, isn’t it?”

With an upcoming board game from IDW Games, the ongoing Season 10 series, and now this new adventure into the past, IDW is the essential stop for fans of The X-Files! Stay up to date via IDW’s Facebook page.

Sad and shocking news has come in from the music world as Dolores O’Riordan, lead singer of The Cranberries, has been found dead at the all too young age of just 46.

According to the Associated Press, the singer’s publicist, Lindsey Holmes, confirmed she died in London, where she was recording. “No further details are available at this time,” Holmes said, adding that the singer’s family was “devastated” by the news.

London’s Metropolitan Police were summoned to a hotel just after 9:00 AM today. As of now her death is classified as “unexplained.”

During her career, O’Riordan provided music for the short film Z, Birdemic: Shock and Terror, Evilenko, and many more films and television projects. We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to extend our sincerest of condolences to Dolores’ family members, friends, and constituents.

If you, if you could return. Don’t let it burn. Don’t let it fade.
