CBR Review: X-Files #6

I recently reviewed X-Files #6 (and, yes, I reviewed every issue of this series) for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "In this issue, Denham makes a bold move by breaking from that realistic style in a couple of spots to depict flashbacks in very sketchy, frantic drawings. The results are fantastic as he demonstrates that, while this is a licensed comic book, it should also be executed as a comic book and take advantage of the medium’s strengths, like using differing art styles for differing effects. For the first time in the series, an issue reads like a comic rather than a TV episode in comic form. It’s a shame that this moment of growth came in the final issue."
