CBR Review: X-Files #1

I recently reviewed X-Files #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Writer Frank Spotnitz wrote for the television series and this issue tries to read like an episode, but lacks the depth or mood of the show. Scenes are rushed through, conversations are brief and lifeless, and the plot is barely engrossing. The differences in comics and television obviously necessitate a little compression since a 45-minute episode has more room for dialogue and lingering in scenes, but making it work is the job of the writer, and not the fault of the medium."
