Titan Comics has officially 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.
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?”
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.
