Monster of the Week

I'm a huuuuge X-Files fan, so these new 'Monster of the Week' online comics by Shaenon K. Garrity, celebrating the best and befuddling of the hugely popular tv show, made me laugh and feel nostalgic at the same time. If you watched The X-Files, you'll recognise the ribbing of Mulder and Scully's personalities and relationship, made all the more funnier in its accuracy. I can't think of any on-screen couple who quite emulate Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny's onscreen chemistry; it was the fulcrum of the show. It really makes me wish it was still running, despite it getting ropey in the final few seasons (it was never going to work without Mulder). And movies don't count.

Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot
Shaenon's only recently started this strip, but it's definitely one I'll be tracking. You can keep up with it here.
