This coming March, IDW Publishing will once again present a five-week “Deviations” events featuring their licensed properties — familiar characters put in rather unfamiliar situations, in alternate reality one-shot stories similar to the classic Marvel Comics series “What If.”
On Monday, CBR broke the news that new characters, including “My Little Pony,” will get the Deviations treatment. Now, CBR can reveal that at least one of the series from last year’s Deviations event will return for a second go-around — specifically, “The X-Files,” with writer Amy Chu and artist Elena Casagrande reuniting for a sequel to their 2016 “Deviations” one-shot.
In the original “X-Files: Deviations” one-shot, Fox Mulder and his sister Samantha effectively have switched places — Fox went missing as a child, and Samantha joins the FBI to seek the truth that surely must be out there. In the new one-shot, “The X-Files: Deviations 2017,” Samantha Mulder and Dana Scully “investigate a shadowy figure who may hold the truth behind the disappearance of Sam’s brother Fox,” in an issue that also features the Lone Gunmen.
Here are Cat Staggs’ main cover for “The X-Files: Deviations 2017” and Miran Kim’s retailer incentive variant, plus solicitation text for the issue. Check back with CBR early Wednesday morning for the full lineup of March’s “Deviations” releases, plus IDW’s full March 2017 solicitations.
