New Independence Day Comic Book Series Will Bridge 20 Year Gap to Independence Day: Resurgence
We know Roland Emmerich's Independence Day sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence, will pick up 20 years after Will Smith and company saved the world from an alien invasion, but what we don't know is what the new and returning since that fateful July 4th. But thanks to a partnership between 20th Century Fox and Titan Comics, the mystery of those two decades will cease well ahead of Independence Day: Resurgence's 2016 release.

According to THR, a new comic book series will be released by the British-based Titan comics, introducing new characters and exploring the state of the world in the wake of that devastating attack that left our planet's biggest cities in tatters. While details of the series have not been released, Titan has hinted it will be "a rich psychological prison drama".

It's interesting to hear that Titan will be injecting some darkness into the Independence Day story. Despite the ominous backdrop of an alien invasion, Independence Day had a more playful tone, but with the alien invaders set to step up their game for the sequel, a darker tone would seem to be more fitting.Titan hasn't announced who will be putting their pen to the new series, nor have they revealed exactly when it will be released, but it seems certain that this will be a must-read for fans of the Independence Day franchise.  

Independence Day: Resurgence is released in theaters on June 24th 2016. Read the official synopsis for Emmerich's movie, below.
