From June and July 1996: issues 0 (an original pre-movie teaser) - 2 of Marvel's INDEPENDENCE DAY movie adaptation. Issues 1 & 2 adapted the movie proper.
There wss also a British edition from MARVEL UK which - from memory - only included the adaptation itself.
I saw the sequel (a film surely no one was clamoring for) a couple of weekends ago and it really was something of a stinker. It looked amazing but the plotting and scripting were really poor: a succession of sequences linked together (or, occasionally, not linked at all) by some remarkable leaps of faith and logic. I have nothing against dumb movies... but ID4 II was just poor.
I quite liked the sequel, as compared to most of the other big sci-fi blockbusters of recent years, it was unashamedly uncomplicated pulp nonsense to the point it felt like there was a part of the final act missing.ReplyDelete
