Independence Day: Resurgence Comic Book Prequel Announced

Titan Comics to publish Independence Day: Resurgence comic book prequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The comic will be "a rich psychological prison drama," that will take place after the events of Roland Emmerich's 1996 blockbuster. Editor Steve White told THR it will be "a golden opportunity to segue nicely into next year's blockbuster sequel by taking the mythos of the original and maybe adding a little darkness to it."

At this time, there are no details as to who will write or illustrated the series, nor is there a title or a release date.

We always knew they were coming back. After INDEPENDENCE DAY redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.
