As our world unites against invaders from beyond the stars, beneath the Atlantic Ocean, another extraterrestrial craft prompts a top-secret investigation by the US military, one which could prove the key to humanity’s survival… or its ultimate destruction.

From celebrated comics writer, Victor Gischler (Angel & Faith, Deadpool), and featuring artwork from Steve Scott (Batman, X-men Forever) and Alex Shibao (Batman/Superman), comes this brand new chapter inspired by Roland Emmerich/Dean Devlin’s original sci-fi blockbuster, paving the way for its anticipated sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence.

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.

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.

Review: Independence Day #3

ID4_3_CoverATensions arise aboard the sub as specimens are shipped back for study. Meanwhile, Adams and co. get to grips with their extraterrestrial armaments and discover the real motivation behind the alien crash…

Explosions, science, and revenge. That’s what you’ll find in Independence Day #3 by writer Victor Gischler. All of that as the characters deal with issues among themselves and their particular feelings about bringing the alien corpse on board which leads them to finding something interesting out. The aliens are drilling, for some unknown reason. The team takes desperate action in hopes of stopping the aliens’ plan. Of course that doesn’t go according to plan as one of the aliens follows the team back on board their submarine.

The art by Alex Shibao is great. The alien dive-suits are fantastic and creepy. The design reminds me of old diving suits, the difference is these are made with alien tech. I will admit even the human dive-suits look like something from the future, which makes sense since the comic is the near future. The explosions are colorful, but manage to keep the characters in shadows of an underwater fire.
