In another surprise interview, THE X-CAST returns as Tony Black speaks to comic-book artist & writer, Matthew Dow Smith - currently drawing not only The X-Files IDW Publishing tie-in comics, but the co-creator of brand new mini-series comic, The X-Files: Origins.

Matthew talks about how he got into the comic book world, in which he's drawn many established franchises (including his beloved Doctor Who), and the path which led him to taking part in Joe Harris' much-loved Season 10 and 11 comics, before taking over as artist for the new revival tie-in run and the story behind bringing Origins to life, and how he feels personally drawn to Dana Scully in particular.

Much like our previous interview with Matthew's friend & colleague Denton J. Tipton, if you're a fan of any X-Files media, comics in particular, don't miss this fascinating interview with one of the strongest creatives working right now.

In advance of our season premiere of Season Two, THE X-CAST returns for another special interview, as Tony Black this time talks to IDW Editor, Denton J. Tipton - one of the team responsible for IDW's recent THE X-FILES comics.

Denton discusses the details behind how the IDW comics come together, from the ideas stage through to Chris Carter's input, all the way through the drawing & finally release; he talks about the difficulties in moving from Joe Harris' Season 11 to the revival-canon comics (and drops a cool hint for the future); he talks about the new X-Files: Origins series and how that came together; and discusses his work with IDW at large, plus his comic book inspirations. If you've ever read or you're a fan of any X-FILES comics, you won't want to miss what Denton has to say!
