Titan Comics reveals ‘Independence Day’ comics team and cover

Earlier last week we saw the trailer of the epic science fiction disaster film Independence Day’s sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence and now we witness the movie’s comic covers. 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. The comic will bridge the gap between the 1996 film and next year’s Independence Day: Resurgence.

The first issue will be released in stores on 2 March, 2016 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.”

The issue 2 that’s set to release on 23 March has official synopsis as “With fear and suspicion running rife aboard the sub, Adams prepares to embark the alien vessel in search of answers. But how will its extraterrestrial crew react to unwanted visitors onboard?”

The comic will be written by Victor Gischier (X-Men, Punisher MAX) with artist Steve Scott (Batman, Action Comics) who’s set to pencil the series. The comic covers have been revealed that features artwork from the films and art by Dio Neves and Alex Ronald.

The film stars the return of Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, and Brent Spiner along with 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 24 June, 2016.Independence day comic1
