Review: Independence Day #4

Cover A ID 4With new secrets arising and the threat of extinction looming over the submarine crew, Adams is left with an impossible choice that could spell redemption for his comrades… or their total demise.

With one issue left after this, Independence Day #4 ramps things up. A strange vision haunts the marine captain, as it reveals the alien race’s plan. Writer Victor Gischler keeps the alien plan is simple, if not genocidal to humanity. Will humanity stop them, or will the aliens succeed in issue #5?

The brief psychic vision between the lead alien and the marine captain is well done by artist Alex Shibao. The imagery manages to reveal some of the aliens origins, and the aliens plan. There’s also some interesting work with the coloring. For example, the subtle shift of blue to purple in the opening credits is simple, but well done.
