Titan have just sent us sketchy details about an  ID4 comic series set after the first movie and, presumably, leading into the sequel…

Details below, guys.

Titan Comics is thrilled to announce it has secured the license to publish all-new Independence Day comics from Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products.

In 1996, Independence Day wowed audiences across the world, winning numerous awards, including an Academy Award® for Best Visual Effects and Grammy AwardT® forBest Instrumental Composition Written for a Motion Picture or for Television.

Directed by Roland Emmerich, Independence Day Resurgence takes place 20 years after the events of the original film and stars Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) and Jessie Usher (When the Game Stands Tall), along with Independence Day returnees Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, and Vivica A. Fox.

Titan Comics’ Independence Day comic series will be a rich psychological prison drama set after the events of the first film.

Steve White, the Titan Comics editor of the forthcoming series described it as “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.”

Independence Day Resurgence is set to launch in theatres everywhere June 24, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
