Independence Day Tie-In comic covers revealed
Following the announcement earlier this year, Titan Comics has officially announced the creative team and revealed the covers for the first two issues of their Independence Day tie-in comic book series. Victor Gischier (X-Men, Punisher MAX) will write the comic, which will bridge the gap between the 1996 film and next year’s Independence Day: Resurgence, with artist Steve Scott (Batman, Action Comics) set to pencil the series. You can check out the covers, featuring artwork from the films and art by Dio Neves and Alex Ronald, below.
The first issue will be released in stores on March 2 and is officially described as follows:
“As our world unites against invaders from beyond the stars, beneath the Atlantic Ocean, another mysterious craft prompts a top-secret investigation by the US military, one which could prove the key to humanity’s survival… or its ultimate destruction.”
Issue 2 is set to follow on March 23 and is described as follows:
“With fear and suspicion running rife aboard the sub, Adams prepares to embark the alien vessel in search of answers. But how will its extraterresterial crew react to unwanted visitors onboard?”
Featuring the return of Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, and Brent Spiner, Independence Day: Resurgence will also star Liam Hemsworth, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Angelababy , William Fichtner, and Sela Ward. Directed once again by Roland Emmerich, Independence Day: Resurgence will debut in theaters on June 24, 2016.
