Den Of Geek‘s special edition giveaway magazines have become the must-grab swag at both San Diego and New York Comic Con‘s, with exclusive articles and in-depth interviews being presented in a glossy, full-colour collectors edition, usually with a nerd de jour themed cover. This year for NYCC, Den Of Geek could have gone with a whole raft of properties that are currently capturing the zeitgeist – STRANGER THINGS, STAR TREK DISCOVERY and TWIN PEAKS immediately spring to mind – but for this weekends festivities, they’ve plumped for… THE X-FILES!
Okay, maybe not as cutting edge as might be expected, what with Season 10 of the reboot airing back in January to favourable reviews, but the show is currently filming an upcoming eleventh season with stars David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and Mitch Pileggi – slated for a January 2018 release – and the magazine promises to have in-depth coverage of the new production.
The 68-page edition of the magazine also promises to feature an article on the enduring legacy of THE X-FILES phenomenon, as well as features on JUMANJI 2: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE with interviews with KAREN GILLEN and Jake Kasdan, Fox’s GOTHAM which returns to screens in a couple of weeks with an episode written by star Ben McKenzie, the headquarters of Pixar during its ramp-up to the release of new movie COCO, and set reports from Amazon’s LORE and Hulu’s FUTURE MAN – a packed mag, indeed.
Copies can be found handed out inside and around the convention by perma-grinning promo monkeys over the course of the weekend, as well as in a digital format, available from Thursday 7th October. Follow Den Of Geek on the ol’ socials – Twitter, Facebook and Instagram – for the links when they become available; I’m sure we’ll reshare it, too.
