Review: Independence Day #5

ID#5 (1)As Adams and his team make a last ditch attempt at preventing a global catastrope, back on the sub, chaos ensues as a renegade extraterrestrial takes control of the crew. Could this spell disaster for all? Find out in this harrowing final issue!

Independence Day #5 is the final issue before Independence Day: Resurgence hits theaters. Judging from the ending of the comic, the new movie has great potential to be a classic like the original. I won’t spoil the ending, but I will admit I’m curious to see if anyone from the comic will appear in the movie. Like the previous issues, the final doesn’t skip on the action, and occasional humor, writer Victor Gischler has made sure of that.

This issue does reveal more of the interior of the alien’s undersea ship. Artist Tazio Bettin manages to show more details, as two marines explore the ship with a shared hope to move the ship away from the fault. Honestly the ship’s entire looks eerily alien, as more and more of it is revealed. The art manages to showcase the alien’s strange physical form as well, as the once dead corpses returns to life.
