    The specimen that the crew thought was dead regained consciousness and is now attacking the crew of the submarine, it's a stressful situation that sees builds tension among the crew as they try to contain the problem. In one of the more humorous scenes two security officers reassure a crew person that they're the good guys and she's safe as long as they're around only to have the alien sneak up from behind and attack them. It's a much needed break in the tension as the issue moves forward. This is the final confrontation between humans and aliens, or is it? A good finale that leaves you guessing. Read Full Review

    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.

    But that's ultimately what this comic is"a basic "franchise comic" that exists as a merchandise expansion without really getting deep into its source material (though with only two movies, there's not much to get into). As I explained in ourPrometheus comic review, unexplored franchises have difficulty being relevant when there's not much in the original work. So while theIndependence Day story is competent, it's also just sort of "there" and doesn't give us much beyond what the original did so well back in 1996. Read Full Review
