Kolchak: The Night Stalker is the story of Carl Kolchak, an investigative reporter for the Independent News Service in Chicago.
Though network and cable television have grown bolder and gorier in the three-plus decades since The Night Stalker's heyday, the series continues to be hailed as a seminal influence by such modern entertainment masters as Chris Carter, creator of The X-Files.
Carter has often acknowledged the influence of Kolchak on The X-Files, and paid homage to that legacy by casting Darren McGavin in a two-time guest role as retired FBI Special Agent Arthur Dales — the first agent assigned to what later became the bureau's X-Files office.

Like many X Files fans, I had heard of Kolchak, mainly because X Files creator Chris Carter had always referred to the series as being a major influence on his own, but I had never seen the show myself.
For me this is one of my favourite comic books I've read and even though I'm a relative newcomer to both the Kolchak world and reading comics in general, I'd recommend this book to anyone, especially if they're fans of shows like The X Files and Millennium.
Its subtle and melancholic message of hope echoes that found in the story Kyrie (Moonstone's Kolchak comic series, Issue #2) and gives the always kicked around Kolchak a reason to continue his lonely path, though the price he pays seems, at first, far too high.
